An OK hotel

The hotel is located in a good spot. The staff could have been better. They were doing construction in the upper floor at 7:30am and there were no notification, as well as the no hot water situation. The housemaids were awesome though.

The experience was normal, the hotel needs to have more services for the customers.

The room was normal, and the services and people was below of my expectation. The price was high for that.

BEST VACATION EVER

HOTEL STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL IN PLANNING EXCURSIONS. STAFF WAS AVAILABLE 24HRS A DAY TO PROVIDE SERVICE. THE HOTEL HOSTS A DELICIOUS DAILY BREAKFAST BUFFET WITH MANY EXOTIC FRESH FRUIT,WARM PASTRIES AND FRESH SMOOTHIES. IT IS CONVINIENTLY LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF COPACABANA JUST A FEW HOTELS DOWN FROM THE FAMOUS COPACABANA HOTEL. THE CHRIST STATUE CAN BE VIEWED FROM THE ROOF TOP POOL AREA.THE ROOF TOP PROVIDES GREAT PICTURES OF THE COPACABANA STRIP. I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN.

Good First Time Experience!

This was our first trip to Brazil and the hotel was wonderful. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The staff at the front desk speak the most English so it is a little difficult communicating to the rest of the staff (bus boys, doormen, housekeeping). The breakfast buffet was amazing with lots of variety. You can walk across to the beach where they provide towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and an attendant will get you drinks as well. They have a pool and bar located on the roof with a great view of the city. They offer information on local attractions and tours and provide good recommendations for local restaurants and things to do. Overall great place to stay.

If you walk a couple of blocks into the city instead of staying on the beach side you can find much cheaper restaurants. Buffets that charge by the weight of your food are a good deal but beware a lot of these people only speak Portugese so communicating may be difficult.

Perfect location, free airport shuttle, yummy buffet breakfast.

Very satisfied with this hotel. Buffet breakfast was amazing. Our room on the 10th floor was very comfortable even though the walls could use a refreshing coat of paint. Staff at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating (we requested a late check-out at the last minute). Free airport shuttle to/from the hotel was very practical. Amazing view from the rooftop pool. We would stay there again definitely.

Great Staff and Location

Free airport-hotel shuttle was easy to use - it is shared with other hotels in the area. William, at the front desk, was very helpful and was able to answer all my questions about Rio. I paid a little extra for a superior room and it was worth it to see a little bit of the beach on one side but more important to me was I was able to look up and see Christ the Redeemer in the distance. The buffet breakfast was excellent - having travelled around the world it is nice to be able to have new foods to try and there were three that I had not encountered before. The hotel is a block away from a bus stop (that I took to get to Sugar Loaf and to Christ the Redeemer). The metro was about three blocks away and it was easy to use to go to the city center. The hotel offers beach chairs and towels right on the beach. The pool was small but I had no problems getting a chair. There were not many English channels on the TV. The location and staff were great!
