Excellent breakfast, very clean, but very expensive. Hotel needs to live up to its standard when advertising rooms. My room was advertised as the one with pool and ocean view. There was an excellent pool view, but ocean view was an extremely stretched truth, actually so much stretched that it became a Swiss cheese :-)
Overall, a superb hotel with excellent facilities and very courteous staff.
"This is a decent hotel towards the end of Copacaba"
Decent hotel, toward the end of Copacabana beach near Ipenema beach. Small pool and gym on top level, with nice view across beach. It's a 'narrow' hotel, only two rooms on each floor face the beach, other rooms have dingy views of the building next door. Staff were good and helpful. Buffet breakfast was nice, but the same every day.Room furniture is out of date, no drawers to put clothes if staying for more than a day, having to live out of the suitcase and bathroom needs upgrading. Decent hotel for the price.
"Very small room, no outlet adapter, friendly stuff"
Very good location with a nice cafe / restaurant. Breakfast was very good. The stuffs were very friendly. The standard room is very small but we only slept there so it did not bother us. The hotel has no electrical outlet adapter nor transformer to loan out, there is an Internet store around the corner that has outlet adapter for sale for R$30. The toilet did not flash easily so I dare to put even toilet paper in it. The towels were clean but not bleached so they looked very cheap and old.
This famous beach is also the widest beach in Rio. Throngs of bikini- and Speedo-clad locals and tourists take in the sun, as well as a round of beach soccer and volleyball. Copacabana Beach is a popular venue for concerts and a spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration where partiers wear white for good luck. The glitzy shops and cafés along Avenida Atlântica provide a welcome respite from the heat.
