Average hotel

Location is the best asset. Not all front desk are that friendly. Early morning staff were the friendly ones during my stay.
It was comfortable. However, I feel they're a 3-star hotel. Breakfast food was decent but not that great.

Great Location

location, location, location
It's an ok hotel. For a place that rated itself as 4 star, half of the staff should learn some manners. Location is great, other than that it serves it's purpose.

good location, but bad food

location, clean room, front kind mind
Very good located because both copacabana and ipanema beach is near from this place. But morning foods are bad. Internet service is free but too late. Front account is very kind, but too busy

Good value in a good location.

Location. breakfast, staff
This was chosen for its location, which is good. The staff were very accommodating with our extra baggage storage needs. The breakfast buffet was the best of our one month trip.

Great location and pretty god service!

Location and clean
To start we got our room directly at arrival 06:00 morning instead of waiting for the normal check in time at noon. They were also helpful at the desk, booked tickets for carnival and the soccer game instantly when we asked. Breakfast ok, nothing special but ok. Good air-conditioned room’s and quick and good cleaning. Asked for extra cheats and pillows and within 5 min we got them delivered to our room.

Good hotel, too expensive

Nice room, massive bathroom, polite staff, good breakfast
stayed on a last minute half price deal, and it was very nice but wouldn't have payed full price. free wifi is great, pool a bit small, location is perfect for both copacabana and ipenema beach, and lots of shops and restaurants and transport links.

Great location between Copacabana and Ipanema

old charm but newly renovated, nice breakfast, great location, helpful staff
the best asset of this hotel is the location which is between copacabana (2 blocks away from avenida atlantica, rio's main beach avenue) and ipanema (4 blocks away). in my entire stay i did not take any public transportation when going to the beaches where i just wanted to stroll. i would just walk as they are very accessible from the hotel via a short walk. it was at the southern end of copacabana (far from the city center on the northern side of copa) and near the northern end of ipanema. my room was very nice as it was newly renovated. housekeeping was absolute par excellence. the hotel has those energy saving corridor lights that would only turn on when they sense that somebody is in the corridor. breakfast was included in the rate and it has a lot of choices. wi-fi was absolutely free and could be accessed from anywhere in the hotel! there was a supermarket just 2 blocks away going to ipanema side. atm machines were also conveniently located nearby. the bus stop was just in front of the hotel. the rate was reasonable! i could not ask for anything more!

Wonderful hotel w good service / spacious accomoda

Location location location!!!! Friendly staff, spacious rooms, and great breakfast included
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the SACH. The hotel itself is still chic w a modern flair despite some obvious wear and tear. This was not a detractor at all as the staff was so courteous and helpful, the room super spacious, and the other features of the hotel excellent, free wifi, full breakfast included, location exactly in between ipanema and Copacabana. Price was very reasonable for what you got. Would definitely stay again. Stayed here about 7 years ago and although some of the shine has Dulles, it is a fine hotel.
