5 out of 5
My room was spacious, clean and had a partial ocean view which was beautiful. The hotel is conveniently located across from the beach. The metro is about 9 minutes away. Breakfast is included and they have a complimentary shuttle to the airport. The pool is on the roof is small but nice with a roof top view of Copacabana beach. There's a bar near the pool and another one in the hotel lobby. The staff was very helpful and courteous. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I like the helpfulness of the staff in the front desk. Great breakfast but other meals the menu was not to my liking. The view from the roof and pool area was spectacular especially at sunset.The rooms are not kept in good condition and you can notice deterioration. The room maid was terrible and very slow. The floors are not carpeted and they looked and where not clean during my stay. The elevators where not the best. The location of the hotel is good across from the promenade and the ocean but not too many interesting restaurant to have a good dinner.I will not stay there if I return to Rio de Janeiro.

The staff is very kind and courteous, but the floor in my room was very dirty. I requested a better cleaning but it was in the 2nd day that they did it. I'd sneezed a lot and I'd woke up coughing and with discomfort in my throat. I was very disappointed. In general the hotel need to change the furniture. They are old and dirty.
