Great Value

Favela experience, helpful staff, Cleanliness
Our stay was wonderful! The staff was very helpful, the room was always clean, and it provided just what you need as an adventurous traveler. I wouldn't say it was 100% perfect since our power went out (in just our room) one night and the water went the next night. In both cases the staff was on it immediately and fixed the issues. We did not have to rearrange any of our plans for these problems, but it was a slight inconvenience (and annoyance after a long day in the sun). The issues never happened again. I would say definitely get the rooms including breakfast since the view from the breakfast balcony is magnificent, it overlooks Favela Cantagalo and Copacabana beach. This is the place to stay for adventurous travelers who don't mind staying in a favela (slum neighborhood) and don't mind walking up hills & stairs to get home each day. The location was easy, 15 minute walk to either Copacabana or Ipanema. The staff will help you out with any questions (limited english though, we used a lot of hand gesture and spanish). We stayed over NYE and wanted to check out a smaller beach since the crowds were crazy, so Liza called her cousin and he drove us down the coast (we overpaid, so I recommend you negotiate with them) to Prainha beach, (gorgeous, highly recommend!). The room is cleaned daily and the shower and bathroom are sufficient. The Favela becomes alive at night, music everywhere and people outside drinking beers and chatting. Staying here definitely added to our experience in a way that a hotel could not provide. Enjoy your time in Rio!

An amazing experience staying on a favela

Location, View, Value for money
An amazing experience. Legia is very friendly and helpful and will arrange trips for you. The favela is very safe and the staff at the hotel are very friendly. Just ten minutes walk to Copacabana or Ipnema, this hotel is in a great location for the price. The breakfast is ample and there is plenty of choice. If you want an authentic stay in Rio and meet local residents then this is an ideal place for you.

Amazing view overlooking copacabana

Balcony, clean large room, close to beaches
The place itself was really clean and well maintained, with all basic requirements. The views was fabulous, having a lovely breakfast overlooking the town to the sea was great. Just be prepared for the area it is situated, which is not for the unseasoned traveler!

Se esta muy agusto en el hotel, son encantadores

Ubicación, desayuno, personal amable, limpieza.
Al llegar te impacta porque esta dentro de una Favela, pero la gente es muy buena, paseas más tranquilo por la Favela que por Ipanema. Lidia y su hermano "los gerentes" son encantadores. Lidia te puede dar muy buenos consejos sobre la ciudad. El desayuno es muy bueno, este hotel es perfecto para gente joven. Me encantó la ubicación para visitar Río, volvería allí seguro

extremement bien placé comme hotel

Staff aimable et vue splendide sur Rio et la favela dans lequel l'hotel se trouve
Arrivée tardive. si je n'avais pas su grace à un commentaire qu'il fallait monter 130 marches d'escalier, j'aurais dit au taxi de continuer car l'hotel est mal indiqué. Sinon dès le lendemain j'ai vu que de jour c'était plus aisé et passer du temps sur la terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur la baie de Copacabana (l'hotel est dans une favela "pacifiée" donc pas de problème).
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Endroit idéal et à 10min à pied de Copacabanaet d'Ipanema avec bus et métro pour se rendre au centre de rio

hotel piacevole per la familiarità del personale

vista dal terrazzo bellissima su rio, colazione buonissima, cortesia del personale
Soggiorno fantastico in una classica pousada Brasiliana. molto vicino sia a Copacabana che a ipanema e allocata in una caratteristica favela di Rio ma molto tranquilla. Si raggiungono a piedi o con pochi euro di taxi i centri della vita notturna e ristoranti nonchè la meravigliosa spiaggia di copacabana.
