Very nice hotel with a great breakfast buffet. Great location. First complaint was that the wi-fi was terrible. Another unexpected situation was that our room has been changed in the middle of our stay without any notification. Swipe card just stopped working so I went to reception asking why I can't access my room and they says that we need to moved to another room. Another room had worse conditions than first one. Day later we had the leakage of the water from a pipe and was a small flood in the kitchen and the hall as a result we had get another room.

The stay was nice, the staff was very friendly, buffet was delicious

I arrived at midnight and was super tired. The guy at the front desk said I was getting an upgrade. Sweet! I turn the key to my room, and guess what was in my room?! A naked dude already sleeping. Dear naked guy, I'm so sorry for busting into your hotel room while you were sleeping. I thought it was empty. So did the guy downstairs. The bellboy went downstairs to straighten out the situation while he had me wait in the hallway. No one from the management ever apologized to me for that huge mistake, nor was I comped anything for my trouble. I hope the naked guy got something out of the deal, at least. My big take away from this was that the rooms ought to have chain locks on the inside so you can lock your room while you're sleeping so random people like me don't walk in on you in the middle of the night. Oh, and hotel management should really do a better job of checking before sticking people in rooms.

Nice hotel located at far end of Leme which is sort of remote. Once I got in, I didn't feel like hiking all the way to the other end of Copacabana beach for the clubs. The hotel has a very nice rooftop pool with a great view and the wifi was very fast.

It was nice , clean room, very well service and the location is good close to the beach with friendly people trying to resolve my problems

While not directly on Leme beach, the location was quite good. Staff were very accommodating and the room was clean. While this may not be the best fit for everyone, our group of three travelers found it to be a great fit for our needs. Nice to have breakfast included too.

The rooms need a lot of improvement: you could see tubes through a net in the ceiling of the room and hear the noise from next-door rooms as if they were next to you. The rest of the hotel is much better.

There was horrible noise in the room due to parties organized in building in front and contact construction work both at hotel site and on the road. Rooms were filthy and with ultra thin walls. Toilet's of adjacent rooms are basically communicating from the ceiling (only a wooden frame separates them). Everything could be heard. Corridors of the hotel smelled urine. Elevators were very very slow, especially in the morning. Forget any sleep if you book this place Staff was OK although spoke very poor English.

My stay at this hotel was a nightmare from the beginning. I was traveling with my wife so I thought it would not make a difference. When I got to the hotel they decided to charge me additionally for my wife. The clerk was very rude. Also, as I was checking in, 8 flight attendants arrived from a major airline and wanted to check in. I had clearly been at the hotel before them but the clerk told me to stand aside and began to check in the 8 flight attendants. After he finished he returned to me and finished my check-in. The hotel floor that I stayed on smelled of sewage. No matter how much they cleaned the room it still maintained this smell for the entire trip. This is a very very bad hotel and I would recommend removing this hotel from your list. I would not give it a one star.
