Well response with flexibility
Staff, location and servives
I messed in booking by mistaking 1 adult instead of 2. I email hotel asking for updating. They responded right away giving additional guest without charge. I was appreciated of their understanding and flexibility.

Great location, excellent meals
location to beach, meals
very helpful and pleasant front desk staff. curious long ugly bedroom - reminiscent of boarding house dormitory - comfy enough bed - room for almost 3 more king beds in here. or a ping-pong table and bar. couple of very odd ceiling lights whose switches were hidden on the face of a defunct radio unit - took me three days to master the tactile art of turning them on/off!!! what a stupid system!!!!! tiny bathroom. have to almost stand on the loo to open the door wide enough to pass through. ghastly toiletries. superb gushing shower (having come from water-saving melbourne). very inconsistent (though free) wifi. very good spread for the included breakfast - excellent endless coffee. hotel suggestion of "viacopa" day tour was superb value - they really took great care to give you a good rio experience. great caipirinha maker behind the mezzanine bar - yum! final 4am checkout efficient and painless

Good service and perfect location
Very close to the beach, especially to the Copacabana Beach (about 5 minutes walking) and Ipanema Beach (10 minutes by car)
The Hotel is very clean and staff are friendly. The hotel is close to many attractions such as "sugar loaf Mountain" and Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. The breakfast was good enough to start your intensive day visiting Rio.

Basic hotel but convenient location
Good location just off Copacabana beach.
hotel was in a good location only a few minutes from copacabana beach and within walking distance of sugar loaf cable car. spacious room, although basic. the day staff were very helpful in organising carnaval tickets, taxis, giving directions etc. nice small pool terrace on the roof of the hotel. the price of the hotel over doubled during carnaval weekend, which did not feel good value, but was otherwise good value for good location.

Good location
Good breakfast & nice little rooftop pool
Central Aircondioner pumps tobacco smoke from same floor rooms into yours.
location of hotel is great for shopping and close to the copacabana beach.sightseeing tours offered by the hotel cost in average a lot more as same tour are sold by nearby travel centres.the tobacco smoke entering our room from rooms on the same floor through the aircondiion system on the other hand is more serious as the hotel claims it is a non smoking hotel.

location is good to walk to Sul Shopping central and to the beach.
Bed is so small.
Hotel location is quite good . It is near by the beach. We can walk only 5 Minutes to Copacabana and Sul shopping centre. It is also close to the bus stop. You are also to take subway at a nearby station to Rio Center. However the bed and lenins in room are not a good quanlity.Breakfast is just survival.
