5 star location, 3 stars everything else.

Location, location, location
Hotels are expensive in Rio, especially in Copacabana area. You have to search hard for bargains even in low seasons. Yhis 3 stars hotels are well positioned in Rua Republica do Peru,less than 5 minutes walk to metro stations, the Copa Beach, and the bus stop to Urca and Ipanema are just outside the hotel. The airport buses ( from both GIG and SDU) stop just 1 block away. The area look old and rundown but actually quite safe. Fro US 110 per night I got a tiny single room, with full air con., wifi and breakfast. the security is polite and not too restrictive. The receptionists are all over 70's senior men hence their performance tend to be slow. The buffet breakfast is plentiful, selection are fair, thought the fruits are fresh and tasty, coffee however , are disappointing. If I search harder, probably there are better and cheaper hotels in Rio, but this one is really not that bad for staying 2-3 days. Its good for first time visitors.

Pleasant stay near the Copacabana

Hotel Location, breakfast, clean room
Good location with plenty of nice restaurants, walking distance from Copacabana, good starting location for discovering Rio de Janeiro. Elevator is really small. Breakfast is good.

close to Copacabana beach!

close to metro, safe neighbourhood
We stayed here for two nights. In a few minutes you walk from the hotel to the beach of Copacabana. The neighbourhood is safe, you can easily take the metro in the evening and walk from the station to the hotel. There are nice restaurants nearby. By metro you've got easily access to all sights.

Just nothing fancy but good enough for the price

Not too far from the beach, room is big enough for one person, friendly staff
It's just simple, room is big enough for one person, got everything you needed. About 10 minutes walk to Copacabana. If you look for something luxury, don't come here. Some staff can speak English. Breakfast is simple but you can be stuffed with bread, cheese, ham and fruits.

most affordable hotel i could find

safe neighborhood
The hotel is in a safe neigborhood, at walking distance from the beach. The subway and busstops are also nearby. breakfast is good. One older staff member behind the reception was very kind. His younger collegea was argogant. The hotel realy has the smallest elevator I've ever seen, but it workt perfectly;)

comfortable, warm staff, great location

comfortable, warm staff, great location
The review at the agoda site was right, the staff crew was warm and helpful. The breakfast was acceptable. The room was big since the hotel was old but it is well maintained and clean. It is nearby local restaurants, nearby the beach, you will get a ride easily outside the hotel.
