Disappointing beyond belief
Not 5 star by any stretch of the imagination..No information given at check in on facilities, breakfast, food etc. Not complimentary water in the room, no bath robe or slippers, no shower gel, body lotion. Not good for international travelers- none of the the pool, bar or restaurant staff spoke any language other than Portuguese. Trying to get a towel for the pool area was like a police interrogation!!

This could be the best hotel in Rio if they tried a little harder. Firstly, amazing hotel, staff, location, views & kids area. How could they improve? It is in the restaurant. Whilst most hotels you can fill in a piece of paper for your omlette and tapioca in the morning, Hotel Nacional leaves you waiting like a lemon in a queue for ages. Secondly at dinner PLEASE HAVE PHYSICAL MENUS NOW COVID HAS ENDED. IT IS HORRENDOUS HAVING TO TAKE YOUR PHONE OUT and look at QR CODES, also bad communication between restaurant and reception means you have to keep your receipt to prove you have paid for dinners. Food at this 5 star hotel could and should have a proper 5 star chef who looks after the running of the poorly run, but pleasant restaurant aspect of this wonderful hotel.

The location is beautiful and fairly quiet (a nice alternative to Copacabana or Ipanema), and aesthetically the property is stunning. The main issues we had were around the service and overall management...if they can improve these, this will be a great property to stay at. Specifically: - Absolutely no follow-up or follow-through with requests. They would stop answering our phone calls if they knew we needed something...so we would have to go down to the front desk with every request. - They misplaced our laundry, so what is usually a same-day service turned into 2-3 days (after chasing incessantly to have them find it). - Internet service was spotty at best. - The breakfast buffet was large and nice; otherwise, the restaurant food was mediocre. (There is also a nice, independently-run restaurant on the top floor that had decent food.) - The pool area is nice, but there doesn't seem to be very good drink/food service around the pool (and forget it if you're in a cabana on the second level). - We had a running toilet the whole time (that would make a loud screeching noise every five minutes). We mentioned that to them 2-3 times and nothing was ever done. - Lots of screaming kids at all times...seems to be a very family-friendly place. I would like to stay here again in the future, so I'm hoping some of these issues can be addressed.
