2/10 Terrible

This is a very outdated hotel... more like 1 or 2 stars. Wifi doesn't work, and after many complains we still could not use it. The washroom is very old and it didn't have hot water. After we complained about it, then we got hot water. The property is in bad shape. I don't recommend it.

The location is superb, two minutes' walk to the beach. Was given room with full sea view, superb! Room spacious. Bathroom on the small side but everything worked. Good telly. Good breakfast room with diverse fruit, hot food, hot drinks. The property has sauna and steam room, which I used. There is also a good-sized gym and pool. Fab views from the terrace, nice bar with good choice of drinks.

Don’t be fooled with photos - crappy wifi / crappy service / not bad breakfast but make sure you include it when you book. Wifi (and tv) worked less then a 1/3 of the time we were there so if you are thinking of remote working here - forget it. Of the 4 hotels we have stayed at from the north to the south this was the most expensive and the worst

Wonderful hotel!!!
Fabulous hotel directly across from Copacabana beach. Staff was wonderful. They let me check in early and check out late because of my flights. No outlet in my bathroom which made it difficult to use my curling iron, and shower water was pretty warm but not hot, how I like. They have a wet and dry sauna, and the rooftop pool boasts amazing views of the beach, as well as Christ the Redeemer. You can exchange your money right at the front desk. I recommend you Uber and not taxi, as a taxi will cost you FOUR TIMES MORE than Uber. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel!Great service!
Let me start with the little detail that I have been before in this hotel, and it was no brainer to book it again.Everything is perfect: price, location, quality of service, food! Hotel is very clean! The breakfast is amazing compared to what we get at American hotels( cerials - No thanks). Fresh fruits, fruit juices, variety of sweets, cheeses, bread, coffee. All of great quality. All employee are super attentive, but never annoying. The view from the rooftop is epic, and the food of the restaurant is great.Highly recommended!

We needed a large room to accommodate both of us doing some work during our stay. The luxury room was acceptable for that. Beautiful view and great location.
