        This hotel is an oasis in Rio, cool, calm and well managed. It is minimalist in approach but the rooms are good and the location, at the end of Ipanema Beach and a short walk from Copacabana, is excellent. The rooftop pool and bar are small but a great spot to relax after touring the city.

        I have been to Rio Several Times and I stay at a hotel around the corner. By far this was a much better hotel. The staff was simply amazing and spoke English well. The rooms are modern and clean. The breakfast was good with plenty of options. I can not say anything bad about the hotel. In a great location. I would highly recommend to anyone.

        The hotel location is ideal right next to the beach. The staff are welcoming and friendly and management (Louis) were quick to solve the issues we had with our room and added some kind gestures. The hotel breakfast is great - it is until 10am i think it could be extended to 10:30. The rooftop pool and bar is amazing and rooms are great. All in all an enjoyable stay and I look forward to returning!

        very nice spot just between the two iconic beaches of Rio. The room is fine, clean, slept well. The rooftop pool is ok, the bar area is better, expect higher prices. Could be a good base area in case you want to do both beaches, plus visit the nearby fort and Arpoador park. Everywhere around it - very good security, even during the evenings.

        Gute Lage, super Personal ”

        Die Lage ist gut, Frühstück war lecker aber wie überall nichts besonderes. Personal sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Rooftopbar zu teuer finde ich.

        Ótimo valor”

        Custo benefício do hotel é fantástico, o quarto é MUITO BOM, a localização é excelente com vista para o Arpoador e de fácil deslocamento para Ipanema, Copacabana e Leblon. O rooftop do hotel tem vista fantástica e conta com restaurante (podia ser mais barato). Café da manhã simples mas de boa qualidade e com boas opções. Pode melhorar: Serviço de quarto inexiste após as 22:30

        Excelente Opção”

        Estivemos no Hotel em plena Pandemia e realmente estão de parabéns. Tudo muito limpo, luvas disponíveis no restaurante, álcool gel em todos os ambientes em comum. Funcionários extremamente educados e solícitos. Café da manhã muito bom e ambiente muito agradável.
