10/10 Exceptional

Very helpful staff, big breakfast buffet and outstanding views from the breakfast room (floor 3) and the rooftop pool bar & restaurant area (floor 30) - the tallest on the end of the Copacabana. Hotel provides a free towel hire and has some parasols and beach chairs available - first come first served. Concierge can help with any tours or excursions and their rates were good compared to prices I'd looked at before going!

Great location, average stay
We were there during Carnaval do Rio… It was my BF’s first time in Rio so I chose to make him stay in the center of it all… This place is unbeatable when it comes to location. We had a frontal ocean view at the 8th floor! The hotel is right in the center of Copacabana beach with tons of stores located in the street right behind… being on Copacabana now ever entails a very noisy stay and even more since this hotel’s windows are not noise insulated. The bed was comfortable and a true American king size. The shower had an amazing water pressure which made for a wonderful experience. I however need to share the following points which were not so great… Given that fact that the prices are affordable, this location draws all kings of crowds, some sophisticated and some not so well traveled… the check in process takes forever and the receptionists are somewhat robotic, definitely not super welcoming… They “forgot” to clean my room one morning and I had to deal with the attitude of a housekeeper after I asked for towels that had been taken but not replaced… The morning breakfast is well stocked with mediocre items and is so crowded that the buffet experience feels like the movies “hunger games” or a cheap Caribbean cruise departing Miami… I guess one pays what one pays for but $400 US per night in average is not exactly cheap either…

Not thanks
From the outside it looks good BUT THE INSIDE IS SHADE! The best things about this hotel are as follows: Breakfast buffet and the location… and that’s it. I paid for a suite and it looked like a motel 6 inside. The cleaning ladies don’t clean well. I’ll never stay again.

Great Loction but….
The location was very good… central and facing Copacabana Beach. The elevators were good. The gym had lots of equipment , but the basement environment was poor. Plenty of good good staff in the gym. The reception area showed its age and was a bit shabby… as was the breakfast room. Breakfast food was fine. However the bedroom was a big let down. There was a large bed but it only had a top sheet and a thin counter pane. The worst aspect was that the sheets were too small for the bed. As soon as you got in the bed the sheets began to puddle around you making for an uncomfortable sleep. It was not possible to tuck either the bottom sheet or the top sheet to secure it. One day we got back to the room from the beach and found no towels in the room. After 45 minutes despite repeated requests none had arrived. We felt that there were a lot of tired areas in the hotel.

Very disappointed
The check in or anything else needed from staff took a very long time. The pool and kids area closed extremely early. The room was very spacious and clean but very outdated and had no outlets by the bed. Also no TV programs for non Portuguese speakers. The view is great so is the breakfast. Overall was a very disappointing experience for the price we paid
