This hotel is pretty nice for South America, but average for US standards. The people at the front desk were VERY helpful. The hotel is a walking distance away from Copacabana. Although on one extreme side of Copacabana. It's not a friendly walk to get to Ipanema, which is a must. A few hotels I've stayed at that are actually...

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location to the beach and affordable without sacrificing comfort and luxury. Pedro speaks English, too. He will have others help you when he is not there. Love it. Highly recommend it.

Good location, comfortable beds and big rooms (for price). I stayed at 4th floor facing avenue - no problem with loudness. Restaurant could be better. They should open day/night bar. They don't have rooms for smokers................ :-(

Stayed there with a group on an organized tour for 4 nights. Walking distance to Copacabana beach, a night market and some nice restaurants. The elevators' service is slow. Basic but clean and comfortable.

The hotel is really horrible. Don't get fooled by the lobby (small but decent). My room was rely ugly, with furniture from the 70's more of a highway motel rather than a hotel. Unfortunatly the price does not reflect this. They are charging for a 5 star hotel I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. Avoid it.

This hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes walk to Copacabana beach, a beautiful beach. As with any city you need to be cautious, obvious show of wealth to be avoided, the tunnel beside the hotel leads to a shopping centre, walking through the tunnel is not recommended unless the police car is sitting there at the entrance to...

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
