    Simple hotel in a great location

    Don’t expect luxury, but it’s clean and safe in the heart of Ipanema. The fridge and room safe worked great. Breakfast was good, with eggs, cheeses, breads etc

    Before writing this review, I have been thinking of something positive but really couldn’t find one. I don’t like writing bad reviews but people need to know that for what this hotel costs, they can certainly find a better deal in the same area. Everything was bad, the hotel needs an urgent and serious renovation. Breakfast was just basic. Rooms are old, ancient and dirty. Bathroom? Terrible... and I had to change room 3 times because of the noise. Wifi? Don’t even rely on that. I better stop here because this hotel made my stay in Rio unpleasant.

    What a bad hotel. Breakfast kept changing hours everyday. The hotel’s wifi service was extremely bad. Kept crashing all the time, and the staff played stupid about if— everytime we would tell them it wasn’t working they would drum up a different excuse. Once they even said it might be because “it’s raining” —in Rio it rains everyday!! The staff in the breakfast dinner was extremeley bad. They would shout at us when we arrived late to breakfast. When we arrived the first night, the night staff was clearly drunk, and as I was making my way in with luggages in hand, the clerk asked ME for change... in Reales! Because he wanted to get a coke or something down the street. I had just arrived! And this is not something to ask a tourist for. The hotel was very pricey and the only thing you are paying for is the proximity to Ipanema beach —- absolutely nothing else.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very basic room but provided me with a good base to explore Rio, clean but a bit run down. Good value for the money. What made it was the location, right on the main bus route and s short walk to the underground station. Ipanema Beach very close by and Copacabana 30 minute walk, but could easily use the transport links if you didn’t fancy the walk. The breakfast was again a basic selection but was adequate to get the day started. The staff are very friendly and most spoke a good level of English. Would definitely consider staying again

    Simple hotel in a great area

    This is a little gem, it is very basic but comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the shower is strong, there is a fridge and safe in the room, the room was very clean (though small) and the desk staff friendly. The breakfast is very good (eggs, juices, cakes, etc). The location is great: only 2 blocks from Ipanema beach and on the same block as a supermarket and the world HQ of H. Stern jewelers. It is a very safe area and this is very important in Rio.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location, Hotel so-so.

    The location of the hotel is excellent. It is on a nice street, close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The hotel is fairly quiet. Cleanliness was OK, but could have been better. The general condition of the rooms is not the best, toilet did not work properly, shower leaked onto the floor and had mold. The breakfast was very simple. It was fine, but the standard is usually much better in Brazil. I would probably not stay in this hotel again, and would rather spend an extra $R100 for a nicer, more comfortable place.

    Péssimo! Não poderia ser pior.

    Minha estadia foi horrível, não havia como ser pior. Quarto minusculo, cama ruim, banheiro vazando, ar condicionado fazia um barulho insuportável , café da manhã pobre e ruim. Péssimo. Em respeito aos clientes da vocês deveriam retirar esse hotel da lista de vocês.
