We chose this hotel because the location is excellent, Ipanema beach, with a splendid view to the cagarras islands. It is a good choice if you want a place to sleep close to everything Rio has to offer, and you don´t mind waiting for elevators. Breakfast is quite good, and if you choose a room in the upper floors you...

We stayed here only one night, because the hotel where we usually stay was booked. The hotel is tall, and the rooms are small. It is architecturally discordant with other buildings in the same area. One of the elevators was not working. The so-called Mountain View had very little view all. I would encourage you to get a beach view....

Overall we enjoyed our stay. However my husbands sandals were stolen right out of our hotel room. Housekeeping and vendors have keys to restock the rooms so there is a certain amount of traffic going in and out. You can always put a do not disturb sign up. A safe is provided, but NOT everything will fit into it. Don't...

The guest claimed about his pair of black sandals that he could not find any more in his room. The only personnel that entered the room were the maid in charge of the room and the ordertaker in charge of the minibar, as they usualy proceed in every room. Once we could not find any evidence of theft, our General...
