Staff and service were brilliant. Location also great right on Copacabana beach
The facilities are a bit tired, as like much of Copacabana.
The location of this hotel is excellent, and it has a pleasant rooftop pool and bar with amazing views. The rooms were spacious and reasonably comfortable, and the breakfast was good - if a little bit hectic at the time we had ours.
Overall I am sorry to say that we were a little disappointed with our stay. We were frustrated with a slow check-in, and when a friend of ours showed up at the hotel, he was not made to feel welcome at all. We only wanted him to join us for a quick drink at the rooftop bar but the reception staff made it so difficult for him to identify himself (despite being local, a qualified lawyer, and highly respectable - even providing all necessary paperwork and ID when asked), and then for some reason they asked him to fill out a load more forms. In the end we just gave up. Whilst the rooms were spacious enough, the bed wasn't particularly comfortable, the decor was really in dire need of refurbishment, and the bathroom was really not at the standard of a 4-star hotel, with loose door handles and fittings in the shower, as well as a leaking toilet. The elevators were some of the slowest I have ever experienced, and it made accessing the rooftop or the reception a lengthy adventure. Perhaps we were unlucky and other guests have had better experiences.
Excellent location at the Copacabana Beach. Beautiful view from the room and a good breakfast. Nice selection of fruit. Staff has been friendly and helpful.
The rooms are a bit small and the facilities are not brand new. Hotel doesn’t have much of a lobby and sometimes it is rather crowded on the ground floor.
Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Very clean, great location. Room was excellent with an amazing view of Copacabana Beach. Excellent service. Loved our stay. Will definitely stay at this hotel again.
