Excellent location and nice room.
It was a great stay and we had a room with a beautiful view. The balcony was large with sun chairs but we spent our time on the beach. The only drawback is that it has small elevators and too many floors. Otherwise the room, service and location were perfect. I also liked the decor of our room. Well worth what we paid. I liked the shower it was spacious.

4/10 Fair

Pretty disappointed
Was happy I was upgraded to a sea view. That’s the positive part. First two days there were no key cards that worked and it was terrible especially when the bathroom was outside the room.. they didn’t really apologize for the inconvenience which was horrible because u couldn’t lock your room and go take a shower without going to the reception in the bottom of the 10 story building without having to get a staff member from the reception to come help open your door. Which they seemed to really hate doing, so it never felt like it was okay to ask for access to your own private room.. I was really looking forward to this stay but I’m so disappointed now that I’m most definitely not going back. AC did not work and was very and was on when we entered the room so that’s really not environment friendly… the guy at the reception at check in was cool but…. There’s many better stays in Rio where your money is better spent. They didn’t even compensate anyone for the lack of keycards. It really feels like a prison when the guard has to walk you to your room like this, the least they could do was wire back some money or at least do something nice..

6/10 Good

A charming hostel
Hotel is very charming, room was lovely, but the level of service they offer at the front desk is terrible, barely hostel level. 4 staff members, not including security, standing around behind the desk while 4 people are in line to speak with front desk. No phone in room to call the front desk. Repeatedly told me my girlfriend wasn’t authorized to have breakfast with me even though we filled out an entire page of information about her. Its a real shame, the room was beautiful.
