OK, well located hotel with modern designed rooms.
Gym was disappointing - a few, old, free weights and a couple of cardio machines that were broken - take your own resistance bands or run along the beach if you want to work out! The chemicals used to clean the room had the most unbearable smell which may have been used to mask the smell of sewerage. It was one extreme to the next! The shower took a bit of playing around with in ordernot to either completely freeze or scold you. The reception also tried to charge me again for the room and extras but had got my room number wrong despite me telling them numerous times I had already paid and didn't have any extras! I went back a day later to see if something I had left had been put in lost and found and they were completely unhelpful and told me I had to email to find out..... I ended up leaving it completely as it all seemed a bit too much hassle for them!
Room decor was pretty. Staff were mostly friendly and spoke good English.
Two big issues: walls were paper thin and we could hear the person in the next room as if she was in our room. Also, nobody told us and there was no sign saying not to drink the tap water. I ha shears that some hotels have ok tap water and some don’t, so when I called reception he say don’t drink it but use the water in the fridge. The next day I was told the water in the fridge was not free. So, we should have been told and it should have been free.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is really good.
The real problem is location. Unfortunately this is not a safe area. Countless juvenile thieves run around day and night. I was robbed once and the very next evening I was stocked by a 10-year old kid both in the same neighborhood.
Great location and the breakfast although there was not a large choice was good value
Huge comfy bed, great big shower, super close to Copacabana
Sofa in the room was dirty, safe didn’t work (they would have rectified this for the next day day, but we were only there one night)
