    Fabulous

    The location is more than splendid, room(s) with a view to the beach are very spacious and comfortable, balcony is pure luxerious. Hearing the ocean on the beach is a splendid sleeping medicin.

    If you are not used to street noise, you could dislike the noise of brazilian life in combination with the ocean noise. I did not.

    Very good

    Firstly the positives .Staff absolutely fantastic .The best i have experienced anywhere in Brazil.Breakfast buffet stunnig .View from the room fabulous.The negative, rooms as is sadly the case with most of the hotels of this standard in Rio are not of 4 star standard.The room was very dated and tired although there had been an attempt at a mini makover.The most annoying thing was that there was no iron available to hotel guests.This sort of hotel policy just frustrates guests.My sugestion for hotels in rio is find yourself a descent 3 star hotel and save your money unless you are obsessed with a view as this hotel is poor value. Internet is expensive and does not work very well

    Very good

    The hotel is well placed on Copacabana beach , and is one of few to have balconies, worth getting a sea view balcony room. It is comfortable and breakfast is very good. Nice rooftop pool and terrace , good view of statue of Christ the Redeemer from there. Hotel offers free beach loungers and parasols , perfect for people watching on Copacabana and to enjoy the beach hawkers , they are lovely , not pushy at all , if you don't want to buy say no with a smile and they respond.

    My only negative comment is that they only offered 1 bathrobe in a room for 2 , this was quickly sorted out.

    Great location, modern, clean boutique hotel, friendly and helpful staff (also english speaking), great view, rooftop pool and sauna, beach facilities, safe, also for 2 women. I would stay here again if I return to Rio de Janeiro!

    Improvement - no free wifi available (now very expensive daily fee of 40 real)

    The location and views were superb -- we could see Copacabana beach, the city and Christ the Redeemer from the rooftop. Every detail was carefully managed for an optimum experience -- from the stylish understated decor and scent in the lobby to the perfectly maintained deck and pool on the rooftop. This hotel stood out above all the others in the area.

    Very well situated just across Copacabana beach, wonderfull pool bar on the roof top, with a spectacular view of Copacabana and Christ the Redeemer. Very good breakfast on the 5th level with a lot of fresh fruits and also a spectacular view of Copacabana. The room is big enough, clean and with a nice balcony who is also with view of Copacabana. It is a little bit expensive hotel but is worth it every penny for its spectacular views.

    Superb

    Great location right on Copacabana beach. We had a corner room with views out to sea and down the beach. Fabulous. 8th floor was good - high enough to get the sweeping view but still able to watch the football on the beach in the evening. Breakfasts were above average with lots of fresh fruit and well cooked eggs and bacon. Roof terrace pool and bar was wonderful - for lunch or early evening drinks. Gorgeous views and sheltered. We have to mention the staff who were outstanding. All of the front desk were friendly and helpful. The beach guys were very attentive. We took a tour of the city with a driver called Claudio who was well informed and charming. Good English too. We had a minor problem with the airport transfer on arrival and Francesca and the rest of the team were most apologetic and made amends with some small details.

    Location and front beach view of the room.Very good breakfast.

    Roof top swimming pool is small.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very welcome at the reception. During our breakfast we were served with lovely smiles, the choice of food at breakfast was excellent. Our bedroom was lovely with a nice view on Copacabana. The swimming pool is a bit small but very nice and cosy.

    Gym club is too small and too hot.

    Very good

    Good location for the beach Very helpful staff Nice rooms Fantastic views from the rooftop terrace

    I could not get an extension to my check out time, due to the hotel being full. The alternative shower facilities offered to guests on the twentieth floor, were rather primitive.
