    I loved this hotel! It’s in a great place on the beach. Down the coast a bit, there is a market and some bars that are great fun but get really loud at night. Near the hotel is was relaxed, clean but still within walking distance to the entertainment. We stayed on the 16th floor in the panoramic suite, and the view was out of this world! It was a fantastic way to spend our weekend! The staff were very kind and friendly, the rooftop bar was very nice and clean, and the food was very very good! The breakfast in the morning was nice, there were a lot of options and the staff were super great and helpful. My girlfriend and I speak Portuguese, but if you’re at all worried, there was a very diverse group of people at the hotel and the staff were helpful in English and or Portuguese! I really have nothing negative to say... I had a great time, we will return soon!

    Excellent The only draw back I experienced is that hotel did not give any complimentary water and even coffee in room is charged.

    I didn’t like the smell in the hallways of the hotel. The hotel was pretty outdated. The pool was really small. And the gym didn’t look anything like the photos. The gym was extremely dirty with towels left everywhere, empty water bottles and rusty equipment.

    Great breakfast, rooms can be better.

    I have been staying in a bunch of hotels in Rio recently so this is a more objective review than others your might see. This hotel definitely has the best breakfast I have had in Rio so far so that was the main plus. But when I compare it to the two Windsors (California and Miramar) it is not as nice in terms of the rooms. They are smaller and their condition is not as good. Feels like 4* whereas the Windsor California specially felt like a 5* star room.

    The rooms have a nice balcony. Besides that it was terrible. The customer service was below average. My room had a leaking sink the safe didn’t work they didn’t have the room ready at check in time and nobody recognized my VIP status. In fact I had booked 3 nights paid with Expedia and checked out a night early it was just not a nice experience.
