Nice. Only slow internet and elevator noisy.
View, location and service.
Very good, only slow internet and elevator noisy, but it seems that most of Copacabana elevators are noisy and a little scary.

Miniscule bathroom
Reasonable price level, very friendly and helpfull staff.
The hotel has no parking available. Parking is on the street, which is next to impossible. As I was arriving very late and would leave early the next morning, they allowed me to park on the sidewalk directly in front of the entrance ! The room was very good, clean and well equipped. The only downside was the tiny bathroom, approx. 1x2 mtr. plus a 1x1 mtr. shower cabin. The breakfast buffet was good, only the re-supply when items were finished was very slow. When I arrived there was no hot milk for the coffee, no orange juice and a few other items were out as well. It took more than 5 minutes before new milk was brougth and when I left after 20 minutes, the orange juice hadn't been re-filled yet.

Good manager, lousy internet and other staff
Leme, not a bad location but far into Leme and not too close to Copacabana
Internet is worse than terrible, service for the internet is awful, don't even waste your time trying to get it to work
The hotel was alright... room was clean but setup was basic/ old. very few international television channels. internet was dreadful (could never get it to work). The manager was very good but other staff were polite but unhelpful.

reasonable price
close to beach (about 50 meters walk), breakfast, everday 20 minutes free internet, good staff performance
limited and week internet connectivity
Leme district of Rio de Jenerio is close to famous Copacabana Beach. Actually the border is not so certain between Leme and Copacapana. Taxi prices are reasonable and you can also visit Ipanema easily (about 13-15 reals). The pool is small but is located at the roof floor with a nice scenery. Fitness center also has the same nice scenery. The "bad smell problem" at the floors and sometimes in the room should be solved. You are adviced to bring the suitable adapter plugs to charge your battery, laptop etc. with you because the hotel may be full and may not supply enough adapter.

ok option
Located in the quiet area of Copacabana.
Far from the centre of Copacabana. Rooms are somewhat dated. Not extremely clean.
This is an alright hotel. The prices are fairly decent for Copacabana as this area of Rio is known to be very expensive. On the plus side the hotel is located in the quiet residential part of Copacabana called Leme. The area feels really safe even late at night but unfortunately there is not much to do. Apart from probably one or two restaurants there is nowhere to go. Strolling all the way to the centre of Copacabana is probably not recommended as Rio is not one of the safest cities in the world. This is a four star hotel but in my opinion and experience it deserves two. It is an alright option but nothing brilliant. Quite frankly I don't think I would stay there again. One thing worth recommending is the hotel restaurant which offers really good food.

location near beach
Beach near by. Breakfast and near MRT,
A bit pricey
Location is in middle of the all activity and good food places. The MRT is walkable. Staff was good and helpful. Hotel is basic with basic amenities. Dont expect much other than a room to sleep. Did have electric kettle, coffee and tea, But who wants to be in room for long. Beaches are near by.
