Rio holiday
I stayed at Rio Design for 9 nights in nov 2019, the staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. The room on the 7th floor (junior suite) was relatively spacious but the double bed i requested was actually 2 single beds pushed together which made for an uncomfortable area in the middle of the bed! The shower was strong with a large double bath which was great but it was very differcult to get a comfortable water temperature when using the shower.. each time you turned the tap it would take a number of minutes for the temperature to adjust. The room was cleaned very well each day. Breakfast was good, a reasonable selection of food, although the restuarant area is small. The best thing about this hotel is its great location to Copa or Ipenema. My summary is of satisfaction overall, i would rate it 7 out of 10. Paul from New Zealand

Very convenient location, between Ipanema & Copacabana Beaches - 1 block! Plenty of banks, restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. Easy access for taxis/Uber/Lift as the hotel is located on a corner. The entire staff of the hotel were very friendly and customer focused. I was pleasantly surprised of the size of the room - very large and comfortable. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Great place for the price
One of those small hotels that are amazing, the staff is super friendly and helpfull, it doesn’t feel like a budget hotel at all when u compare the professionalism! The bed was pretty big and the room very spacious, recommended for quick trips.

Nice hotel and a great location
Rio design hotel is probably one of the better hotels in copacabana, and is situated in a great area for restaurants, bars and of course the beach. The beach is literally 2 minute walk. Customer service was good, and everyone pretty much spoke English at the hotel. I had a good stay and would recommend this hotel for anyone heading to Rio and wanting to stay by the beach. Breakfast was good, not great selection but it was free. Hotel has 24 hr room service, which is always good. Only bad was no pool access as they were doing renovations. Also hotels need to stop advertising having gyms, when they only have a small room with two cardio machines. That’s not a gym! Apart from that, it’s a great location and a good stay. Would say for Brazil standards, it’s def a 4 star.

Fair 4,0
just ok. nad service
we stayed in this hotel for about a week and other than being in a very good location i will have to say it was quite disappointing. The rooms were ok however they forgot to clean our room twice during our stay which means no towels were changed and since Rio is a beach destination our room was full of sand and used towels. breakfast had nothing to offer to my wife who is vegan, not even as much as a tapioca or a salad and the kitchen staff who knew we would be staying for a week or more didn't even try to accommodate this issue. we spent a month in brazil traveling around and even hotels in the middle of nowhere had vegan options for breakfast but this one in the touristic center of Rio de Janeiro had nothing.

Reception staff were friendly and helpful. We liked the location, and were pleasantly surprised by the room upgrade they gave us. The bed was enormous and very comfortable, and we had double sinks and double showers. The offerings at breakfast were impressive and excellent. Overall, very good value!
