Fair 4,0
The hotel could be amazing. But it is poorly managed. Everything is falling apart, old or not taken care of. I had to put a carton under the fridge to prevent it from falling. The pool has no music during the day, very boring. The staff is great and the breakfast is very good.

Carnival at Pestana
Great location in the middle of Copacabana beach! Check-in was very slow as there was only 1 person at the front desk, during Carnival of all times. Other than the smell of sewage with every flush of the toilet, not sure if that’s a hotel issue or an infrastructure issue. Roof top pool/bar was nice with great views of the beach and surrounding area. Not sure if the restaurant inside is open during the week, but they had a pretty good breakfast buffet on the weekend until 10am I believe. Restaurant outside the hotel on the left was good and the staff was very friendly. Overall decent stay. Not sure how things are during a “regular” weekend stay so the experience could be totally different as Carnival pushes them to capacity.

I booked it for one night only. The hotel looks good in pictures and it has great location. But it is very outdated. My room was ok but the bathroom was a nightmare, full of mold everywhere, the shower tiles were disgusting, the ceiling was black full of mold, the sink dirty. I stayed in 3 different hotels in Brazil during my vacation and all of them were great. This one was a big disappointment as it was my last night in Rio. I would not recommend this hotel
