    Amazing Stay!!”

    My mom and I spent a total of 4 nights at this hotel and we had the most incredible stay! The accommodations were great, the staff were the kindest, the breakfast was delicious, the location was prime, and the hotel manager was such a gem! He made sure our stay in Rio De Janeiro was a memorable one. He went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and was truly one of a kind. I have never met a hotel manager who played such a visibly active role. It was a true joy to see him everyday and be greeted with his warm energy. In all honesty, we started to feel apart of this hotel family. We will 100% return and encourage our friends, family and anyone who reads this review to do the same! 5 stars!!! Thank you Rio Design for an incredible vacation. We are so grateful!

    Excellent location, friendly staff and good breakfast ”

    I had a lovely stay at Rio Design Hotel, it’s perfectly located 2 minutes from the beach and not far from Ipanema where the action is. The staff went above and beyond to be accommodating, upgrading me to much a nicer, modern room when it was available. Con: The younger manager with the glasses is creepy and inappropriate. I won’t go into details but solo female travellers beware. The bus boys and managers were all very helpful, spoke English fluently and we’re professional :) I’d stay here again.

    Friendly hotel near Copacabana/Ipanema”

    We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights over New Year. The value for money rating is given as "satisfactory", only because we paid way over the normal price, because it was New Year. The hotel is located next to Copacabana beach, but a short stroll to Ipanema or the Lake. The staff were the highlight of this hotel for us. They were very friendly and extremely helpful. Even running to change money for us when we ran into a situation. There was a small gym upstairs and a rooftop pool with seating for about 10 people. We didn't use any of them so couldn't rate, but the pool was certainly very busy when I looked. Breakfast was good.

    Very nice location”

    The hotel is located next to a police office, u have to walk less then 1 minute to go to the beach. The staff were friendly and they speak english, they can help you with whatever u need. But the only thing i didn't like that all the rooms are close, so you can hear when they open the doors and when they close it, on top we could hear the steps like they are walking inside the room. The breakfast was ok, but not many choices.

    prezzo eccessivo per la qualità offerta”

    la posizione vicino alla spiaggia

    E' vero che abbiamo prenotato la camera all'ultimissimo momento (e a RJ per l'ultimo dell'anno vi è sempre il pienone), è vero che tutti gli alberghi di Rio raddoppiano almeno i prezzi per capodanno, ma pagare più di 400€ una camera che se proprio vogliamo essere generosi ne vale ... ecco questo non va bene. Stupidi noi ad avere prenotato all'ultimo, ma consiglio di trovare altre sistemazioni perchè l'albergo lascia alquanto a desiderare. Camera piccolina e spartana, aria condizionata mal funzionante, wifi non prende agli ultimi piani (e infatti sono nella lobby a scrivere qs recensione), lobby piccolina (solo due divanetti), colazione discreta ma niente di che, insomma albergo tre stelle che probabilmente era bellino e di design una decina di anni fa almeno, sconsigliato
