If you are looking for a nice, clean, comfortable room right at a reasonable price right smack in the middle of Ipanema beach, this would be it. Staff were friendly and helpful - only the front desk and restaurant manager spoke English. Free wifi is available and worked great throughout my stay (if needed, paid wifi gets higher bandwidth). Breakfast spread was simple but adequate; quality of food ordered off the ala-carte menu was much better.
Beautiful stretch of beach right across the road from the hotel; the Garota de Ipanema (of Girl from Ipanema fame; pricey but quality of food was mediocre) is literally just around the corner, and Bar Emporio and other notable watering holes are just a couple of blocks away.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
