  • Family with children

    The breakfast staff was great. Very friendly atmosphere.

    My reservation was paid for in full by a family member in England. She filled up the credit application and sent it back to bookings but when we arrived at the hotel, they had no knowledge of it and we were asked to pay for our stay ourselves. We were most disappointed to find out that on our first night that there was no hot water. We advised Reception and we were told someone would come up to sort it out but no one did. When I spoke to Reception again the next morning we were told that cold showers was good for our health. We later found out that this was a known problem and they were trying to fix but we would receive a discount on check out but we were refused in the end. All in all, terrible Customer Service and appalling deceiving information by staff. Unforgivable.

    Staff extremely helpful. location amazing. View from balcony excellent. very quiet.

    The safe was a bit strange and I was not sure about the security.

  • Group of friends

    Breakfast was good, and stayed out for a long time. Right in front of Copacabana. Rooms are very spacious.

    Not very well taken care. Things are old, broken and not much money is put in maintenance.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    The location is great and the staff is very helpful.

    The hotel really needs a total renovation. It's old and worn down. Sheets are yellow, little or no hot water to shower and the rooms feels dirty and not very clean.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were very helpful and the hotel location was right for where we wanted to be in Rio

    Our room looked a little tired and was in need of a lick of paint and a new carpet.

  • Group of friends
    8.0

    The location is excellent. Opposite Copacabana beach. Area is filled with acitvities

    Need a ramp for carriage of suitcases, instead of pulling up the staircase.

    Hotel needs renovation. They showcase a pool on their site, and there is no pool, that is on thei palace othon hotel... There is wi-fi at $10 a night but there is no chair nor dest to work on the rooms...

  • Family with children
    4.6

    The fact that it was on the beach and had a balcony. Everything else was terrible.

    Still use actual keys for the hotel room doors, which did not work well at all. Toilet didn't flush. No hot water for showers. No hot water at all in bathroom sink. Building was so old, the bathtub looked disgusting. Did not want to bathe my daughter in it. Very noisy crowd outside our balcony woke us up for an hour in the middle of the night. Buffet breakfast was limited. Chairs and couch in the suite were extremely old, dirty looking, and arms on chairs were broken. We were supposed to say 12 nights, and checked out after the 1st night. So disappointing.

  • Single

    The mid-century decor is very elegant and I loved the colour scheme of my room and public spaces of the hotel. Access to the beach and the view of the beach were excellent even though it was a little noisy at night. It was so central for the routes to other main tourist sites in Rio. The breakfast buffet and view is very good. Room and balcony size was excellent.

    To describe the room as luxurious is an overstatement. There is no modern safe in the room to stow valuables and the locks on doors are old and dodgy. The bathroom needs complete refurbishment. There was a horrible grinding machine noise going 24/7 from the bathroom side of the building. The faulty lift meant I used the stairs to descend, but this was not feasible when I was checking out with luggage.
