Stayed here before, appreciated the drinks and service. The view from the one-bedroom suite was breathtaking. It has a poolside bar.
Excellent place for 2 nights. Friendly staff, lovely pool. The luxury queen room is large, with a mini fridge bar, cable channels and a study table. As it's approx 10-15 minutes' walk from Cardeal Arcoverde metro.
Cardeal arcoverde was situated on the doorstep. The room had a great balcony.
Central location, nice lounge area on the roof of the hotel
Due to renovation work on the facade construction site noise from jackhammers! Actually a reason for reduction
Everything, super breakfast, friendly staff. Location
Very nice clean modern hotel with super nice view on the Copacabana. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the pool on the roof is simply fantastic! Breakfast leaves nothing to be desired!
Very nice room with sea view. Air conditioning was easy to regulate. Good breakfast. Great location on the Copacabana. Very nice pool on the roof with bar until late at night, perfect. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
There was nothing to complain about.
We were already 6 days away in the hotel and wanted to check in this time already at 12,20. The room wasn't finished yet, because the guests checked out 20 minutes ago, also no problem because normal check in is only at 14 o'clock. We arrived bravely at 14 o'clock, our room was not ready yet and it lasted until 3 o'clock
very nice hotel, the view and location weree amazing.
Location, service, comfort and cleanlines
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.
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
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)
There is not much I really liked about the hotel.
