The hotel has everything you need, the room is small however with a modern and clean look, the bed is very comfortable. Location is great, 2 minutes walking from the best spot at Ipanema Beach, nice restaurants, bars around.

Clean and modern

I have stayed at several hotel trying to find the best hotel for the price and comfortable for business in Rio. Most business hotels are VERY expensive and I work for a small operation so we try to save money. This hotel is comfortable, clean and modern with free Wifi and breakfast that save money. And it is only 2 blocks from the beach--a requirement for me in Rio. The only downside is that there is no pool but I find most pools in Ipanema and Copacabana disappointing anyway. It is a three star hotel but a great value for the price!!! Better than other 3 stars I have been to in Rio!

Great location, clean and confortable rooms

The hotel location is great, only two blocks from the beach (Ponto 10 on Ipanema Beach). The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included it was very good for being a small buffet. The room was very confortable, though mine needed some maintenance: hot water faucet for the shower not working properly. Bathroom sink was leaking and alarm clock/ipod dock only had the clock function working. None of this was a very big deal but yet it's good to not have these issues specially for the very expensive rate that I paid for.

Very Good Compared to the Competition

Visited during an unusually crowded week, so the price was much higher than normal, otherwise my "value" rating would have been higher. Great location - two blocks to the beach, very good restaurants two blocks the other. Very nice breakfast, and staff was accommodating for a schedule change even though it was so busy. Couple of big bugs in the room, but the actual housekeeping was very good.

Good for Carnival

We went to Rio for Carnival and this hotel was perfect for that. The location was great for the Carnival parties and close to the pick up locations for transfer to Sambadrome. The room was small, but comfortable and the staff was great.
