    Good location. Good value. Nice staff. Safe.......it has all the general luxury amenities like rooftop pool, breakfast, beach staff and great location but is just a little lower on the luxury level. And that is reflected in price. We chose it because we didn't plan to spend much time in the hotel room and it was much cheaper than neighboring hotels with similar amenities.

    Room was overly scented at first. Cleaning uses a very bold deodorant spray and after the first night we found out why-----it was masking the various smells of mildew and faint urine in the room. And after discarding the comfortor etc/and inquiring, that seemed to be unescapable. That was the one caveat. Sounds terrible.....but we survived and enjoyed our stay. Some of the other amenities for the value- price made it worhtwhile.

    Did not disclose policy about visitors to room. I had a collegue that could not come to my room because they were not listed on the room.

    Location, Service and security.

    Breakfast at peak times can be a bun fight and with restaurant on 4th Floor, getting down from a high floor to breakfast/lobby can take 10min +

  • Single

    excellent location

    i think the rooftop bar area needs to be more inviting. its was not very atmospheric, and given where the hotel is located, it could be a great venue

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Choices for breakfast buffet were excellent. Easilly accessible by bus and train. Three blocks away from subway train station

    There was no free wi-fi. The connection price was a lit bit expensive.

  • Single

    Nice staff, location

    Could have a better bar area, lobby bar was very quiet; pool bar was where the social time took place

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Perfect location, quite, no noise, clean, luxe

    no free internet, very expensive

  • Single
    8.8

    The manager was helpful, fair and considerate.

    The hotel and your website did not advise me in advance of a policy against having guests in the room.

  • Single
    9.6

    Good location - a small hotel compared with others in Rio.

    Very strict on departure times, unless you are willing to pay a supplement.

  • Single
    6.6

    The location was very good and the staff very helpful.

    1. They charged for everything including water. 2. They were charging GBP 30 a day for an indifferent wifi connection, very bad value. GIven that their room rate was fairly high, they could have provided the computer connection for free as was the case in my hotel in Sap Paulo. 3. I ate at the hotel a couple of times in the evening and the buffet was mediocre, the food had been cooked and then kept warm. Overall I would rate this a 3 star hotel.

  • Couple

    Excellent value for the monay, 100% view of Cobacabana from your hotelroom!

  • Single

    The food and service is good. The location is excellent, better than Windsor Atlantica, where it is very hard to find a cab.
