                    Breakfast was fine, rooftop terrace had a great view, good location

                    Very narrow single beds. Old furniture. Noise employees outside in the corridor talking on the internal phone at 7 am (everyday). Do not recommend front rooms, street is very busy.Too expensive for what it offers - try another place.

                    Free wi-fi is satisfactory for websurfing and email checking but not for business users. Bed is moderately comfortable, however pillos are bushleague razor-thin. Need about 8 of them to equal 2 real pillows.

                    The front desk guy was all business checking me in-didn't say enjoy my stay or anything, pretty rude.

                    breakfast was good

                    it was hard to find a staff who could speak English.

                    very disappointed with the Hotel for a 4 star poor accomodation until they moved my Partner and her two sons on the third night we sent an e-mail and complained but no discount offered or compensation, we live and learn.

                    Friendly staff. Great location. Nice breakfast.

                    Air condition old and super loud, very hard to sleep. Low value for money. About 5x5m pool.

                    Location was great

                    Hotel staff were pretty unhelpful. The breakfast was awful, ried out and sour milk! The 'suite' we booked was extremely basic. It was a suite in the fact that it had a living area and a bedroom but the likeness to a traditional suite ended there.

                    The room was in a good state of maintenance. Location is good for those that want to spend time in Copacabana as well as for those interested more in Ipanema (5 minutes walking from the gay beach).

                    Staff wasn't fully honest. Upon arrival, the bell-boy brought us to the room. It was a twin room, although we had booked a double room. When I made a comment on this, the bell-boy said that all the double rooms were occupied, but the single beds can be connected to form a big bed. I then went to the reception, where the receptionist said that the hotel had no double rooms (rooms with double beds), and that when a client wants a double room, the two twin beds are connected. I found it hard to believe that the hotel had no rooms with double beds. When a house keeping employee came to connect the beds, my Portuguese speaking partner asked whether there were rooms with a double bed. The employee confirmed. While the solution (connecting the two beds) was OK, the question is why the receptionist lied, saying that there were no double rooms in the hotel? Why not be honest?

                    The hotel is in a great location for walking to both ipanema and copacabana. The hotel itself is pleasant and the front desk staff is friendly.

                    Great location, great staff.

                    Rooms seemed a little damp and mildew-y. Gym and pool were not as nice as advertised.

                    Location, breakfast buffet. Safety of the place. Free internet. Overall a fair deal.

                    Big differences in the hotel staff: very friendly afternoon shift. Rude morning shift. Had the impression I was a burden for the lady. Tours were much more expensive when booked through this hotel than elsewhere . Rooms are a bit noisy.

                    Very friendly staff, good breakfast. Close to the centre and beaches make ti a good choice for staying in Rio.

                    The pool is a splash pool (the pictures may it look a,lot larger)

                    The communal rooftop area was a nice bonus - good views.

                    Awful view from room window, bit stuffy but ok overall. A leaflet with amap would have been very useful, hard to find our way evento the beach which was close.

                    Hotel was central to both Ipanema and Copacabana. It had 24 hour pizza.
