the location was exellent. the staff was very nice.
the noice from outside was terrible. we could not sleep after 7:30 a.m
Location is very good, situated between Copacabana and ipanema beaches. The beach is just one block away
Access to WiFi was sporadic, which for me was a pain as I was in Rio for business
The jacuzzi, the location, the breakfast are very good points. Rooms are confortable as well.
The reception is not all the time good because we had a bad experience with a guy called Melo.
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good.
The hotel is too old. Well, i stayed in a cheap room but still it wasn't that cheap for the hotel. Sheets are old, towels are not white anymore. i think the owner should spend some money on the hotel itself.
Breakfast and staff
the room too small, and everything looks old
It's a little bit closer to the beach, but not the best part, it's close to a bus stop but not of a subway station
Everything is terrible. The hotel may be cheap but we can't understand why we pay this price. The air conditionining was broken and there was no one in the hotel to fix it, they moved us from room and in the following day wanted us to come back to the first room, only one guy was friendly, the other staff was arrogant and just wanted us to buy touristic guides, the hotel is not professional and it seems to be from a familiar administration. The hotel staff were not informed about the basic information on the city.
the staff were very friendly and effeicient and the breakfast was excellent...
Their breakfast buffet was tasty and sufficient.
I'm not sure about their billing. When I booked online, You advised me that they will charge me 50% of the whole bill. then when I arrived, they still billed me 100% of the total bill! So, I have to wait for my credit card statement to see if I was ripped off...
Good location, clean, between Copacabana and Ipanema.
There is a 10% fee plus 5% taxes not mentioned here.
