Location on Copacabana, view from room and rooftop, beach chairs and towels, great breakfast.
Hotel badly needs refurbishment, rooms and facilities are not up to the 5 star standards not even 3 star I’d say.
Love the location, and is very lively front of house. Skybar offers wonderful panoramic of city. Wonderful breakfast too!
The main gripe is unfortunately the HUGE amount of time to check in. The queue was not even that big to check in, 4 people in front of myself, but took 40 minutes to get checked in. (On this occasion I booked to rest for 5 hours before getting flight, and 40 minutes of this wasted, highly highly frustrating). In General the check in is painfully slow, and the staff don’t really seem to grasp the desperation of the members to get checked in and rest, with people checking out given the priority. Overall, very frustrating and must be addressed!
Not enough lounge chairs at pool Pool tiny
The location is great. The room was clean.
The staff who work in the reception were not friendly, they didn't smile. We stayed 3 nights and we hadn't seen their smiles. Check in should be on time. We asked them before 1 hour and they refused to do it. They said the hotel was fully booked but on the other hand they tried with us to do upgrade for another room and pay extra charge but we didn't accept that. The room didn't have any tea making facilities or bottles of water. The payment was so complicated that I have seen ever.
I like the balcony a lot. The weather was just perfect when we stayed there and the balcony opens up to the whole copacabana atmosphere. The music outside was upbeat and it fills up the room that makes you feel like the locals. The price was just right for the amenities and services that they provided.
They could do a lot better with breakfast variety.
