Great location by the beach
location
perfect location for a stay in Rio de Janeiro. The beach is just right in front of you. and you can have a view of it from the room balcony. For an even better view, just go up to the swimming pool on the top floor, there you have a 270 degree viewing both the beach and the mountain of Christ the redeemer statues. The room is nothing fancy, but clean. friendly and helpful staff.

Great hotel in good location
Great service, spacious and clean rooms, good amenities, large balcony, good breakfast
the staff were very helpful with various requests related to my mother's food poisoning including recommending a doctor that was great and close by. the rooms were clean and spacious, amazing shower and the hotel is modern and as luxurious as the website shows (unlike other hotels we have been in around south america and even on ipanema beach). they even have an ipod docking station in the room, which is fantastic. the pool is only a plunge pool though, but the view from there is great.

Front desk suggested a nearby Brazilian restaurant right on Copacobana for dinner. Mediocre. Then some incorrect room bar fridge charges showed up on the bill at check out, but the Front Desk sorted ...

Great Hotel, Stay here!!
Friendly staff, great room, amazing rooftop pool, great bar
we decided to upgrade to the deluxe room with full sea view(we had booked with a side view) and it was every bit worth the money. at only 70 real each extra a night, we had a spacious room, with a gloriou view of copacabana beach. the balcany was lovely and large with a light, not like when they advertise a blacony and its barely a step.... the staff were lovely, they went out of their way to help, especially at breakfast, we didnt ever have any other meals there, so cant comment on that. beautiful rooftop terrace and fitness centre....if you're into the gym, this will be a great workout for you, with a fab view, if not chill by the pool with great cocktails from the bar!! the pool is small, but didnt bother us much, because there were always loungers free, not sure it would be like if it was busier though?? all in all, amazing hotelm would recommend a saty for sure!

Great Hotel in a Great...
Great location, modern and well maintained! The GM, Sofia was wonderful and welcoming, and a chance meeting with her on our first night made for a wonderful rest of the trip!
The elevators are small, and slow. :(

nice location, nice view, very friendly
they have free beach parasols, beds, and towels renting on the Copacabana beach.
All the staffs are very kind and friendly. Perfect location in Copacabana Beach, close to Copacabana Palace, one of the best hotel in Rio. Close to the metro station.

Great Location
Great location and excellent service
Laundry was way too expensive and the floor in the bedroom no wiped leaving it stick on bare foot. Restaurant in the hotel closes too early!
It was terrific service from the moment we arrived, tired and earlier, they organised a room straight away, it was a great help. I would definatelly reconment and go back there next time we are in Rio!

Friendy staff
English spoken, clean rooms, close to ATM and convient shops. Excellant view of the Beach
Noisy hall ways, can hear everything.
One block behind the hotel are shops were you can by sunscreen, water and grocery stores where you can buy bread, fresh produce, wine and beer. Rent a beach chair and umbrella all day for 15 Real. Get a cheaper ride to the airport by using the taxi stand to the left when leaving the front door of the hotel. Catch a nic view of Cocabana Beach from the 20th floor of the hotel.

Nice Hotel, Great staff.
Good location, Extremely friendly and helpful staff
Noise from traffic; Fees for internet.
The hotel was very nice and seemed to be a good deal through Agoda given the prices of competing hotel in the area. They had a great buffet breakfast and the staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. The room was reasonably nice although not luxurious and had a beautiful view of the beach with a balcony. The view comes with the price of a good bit of noise until late in the night and also early in the morning from traffic on Atlantic Av. (the main road outside the hotel and running along the beach). The room also felt damp due to the humidity - the air conditioning didn't seem to pull the humidity out of the air very well. All in all, we had a very nice stay despite the couple of negatives and would still recommend the hotel to others.

Great location/Great view
Location location
restaurant service doesnt match the hotel standards
We were blown away by the view from the room as well as from the pool and fitness centre. The location is ideal for travel around Rio and you are on the main strip of Copacabana which has a great atmosphere. The hotel staff are very outgoing at the front desk and are very good at helping with tours etc. However we were not impressed with the hotel restaurant and were not the only ones to feel this way. Orders were messed up. There was 4 waiters working and only 3 tables yet we waited an extremely long time for service and for food. The waiters too seemed burned out and uninterested. All in all though a great hotel restaurant aside
