Perfect location for this hotel, right on the beach at Ipanema with breathtaking views of the sunsets. The staff are helpful and very friendly, especially Davi who dealt with everything with great helpfulness and efficiency. A great experience!

The rooms (especially the ones looking over the beach, that may come with a hammock next to your bed) are clean and comfortable even if they sometimes look like they could use a little refurbishment. But it's comfortable and with stable WiFi. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Most importantly, the restaurant is one of the best in area....

A great, reasonably priced hotel in a lovely area of Rio. We felt extremely safe, and no problem walking around the area. The hotel sits on a boardwalk, just steps from the beach. Try to get one of the ocean view rooms - you can open the windows and hear the waves crashing. Great restaurants close by to walk to....

We spent our last night in rio here and after three weeks in Brazil and this was our best stay by far. The sea view was superb, and the staff looked after us extremely well. All was available-Maps, beach umbrellas, outside dining, a beautiful breakfast with the edge of ocean view. The courtesy of the English speaking staff made our...

We had an amazing stay here, the location is as good as it gets... so close to both Copacabana and Ipanema beach its hard to beat.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for a few days and, whilst we felt we were quite mis-sold on our twin bedroom (which looked nothing like the pictures on the website and was very basic, outdated and small), the outstanding receptionists, location and variety of their breakfast buffet improved our experience. I am aware of better quality hotels...
