Outdated, overpriced - simply horrible. BEWARE!
Anybody wanting to stay at this hotel should think again. Just a few of the highlights from my six nights stay at the hotel: two elevators that are used by guests and all of the cleaning staff, meaning it's at least a 10 minute wait each time you use the elevator and then you are riding it packed with maids, mechanics, etc - not exactly a good experience; very outdated rooms, dirty hallway carpets, chairs that should have been replaced years ago; no English tv and advised BBC was available but nobody could tell me on what channel; breakfast is horrible and very limited - I found hair in my scrambled eggs...not once greeted at the restaurant; overall very unfriendly and indifferent; internet connection beyond weak and not always working; dirty and stained towels; it's not a pool on the rooftop - it is the size of a jacuzzi; the hotel is old and smelly. The only good thing is the location. Overall, a horrible experience - this is NOT a 4 star hotel...not even close and beyond overpriced. BEWARE.

A well-located hotel on Ipanema Beach. The avenue in front creates a lot of noise if you are staying in a beach-facing room. The breakfast is wonderful and the rooftop deck is small as well as the pool but

Great hotel with picture-perfect views of Ipanema. Near everything. Redecorating the somewhat worn-down rooms and improving the internet would make this a 10+ accommodation.

Perfect location & view. Ants in the room.
The room was large and we had an ocean view. Excellent bed. Clean room apart from ants and bugs. The staff was helpful and reacted fast. The beach is wonderful. The location: the best in Rio. Pool bar area has an amazing view. What we did not like: ants around in all the electricity plugs in the room. And the pool was supposed to be heated but it was not. The front desk person asked me for the credit card CVV security code - nobody should ask you for that number. WiFi was quite slow: around 8 Mb.

Nothing like the pictures. Decent stay. Lacks wow
Friendly staff, great location, brilliant breakfast, clean and comfortable. Just lacks that wow factor. The pictures are very deceiving.

Loved this hotel for our trip to Rio!
100% satisfied with everything about this hotel. If we go back to Rio, this is where we will stay. Easy check in and front desk was always helpful if we had questions. We landed at 9am, and were lucky that our room was available. Room was really nice and bed was very comfortable. Great shower with a rain shower head and lots of water pressure. We had a room facing the ocean and our view was amazing. The food at the breakfast buffet was delicious and had so many options. Loved all the fruit! The beach was right across the street and it was easy to grab chairs and towels to take with us. It was a little annoying how often people tried to sell us stuff, but we loved that someone brought us beers and offered other drinks right to our chairs. Beers were only $2 each (if you were paying in USD) pretty much everywhere on the beach and they were always ice cold. Amazing view from the roof top and loved that there was a bar up there. Make sure to peek around the back to see Christ the Redeemer. Location is perfect. Very close to the metro although Uber is incredibly cheap (in USD), quick and reliable. Ipanema is a little quieter than Copacabana and we are really glad we stayed there. Great running/bike path right out front and on Sundays they close half the street. We were so happy with our stay and I hope we have the chance to come back some day!
