Great family trip

I booked two rooms for a family winter trip to Rio. The hotel is very nice, right in front of Copacabana beach. The breakfast was good, Brazilian hotels always offer a very nice breakfast in general. The view from the breakfast lounge was outstanding. This was a very good deal for the price and location, but it looks like a lot of people got good deals here, so it was a bit crowded. If you are looking for something more exclusive with their amenities, it will cost you a lot more. Also, be mindful for their ocean view (it is a side-view on the balcony only) classification, do not confuse it with ocean-front...

Lousy Internet

The hotel is located right on the Copacabana Beach, within walking distance to the subway station. The hotel provides beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella. The hotel is a 30 floor building, has lots of guest rooms. So be prepared for a crowed breakfast. The breakfast is free but lack of verities. But it’s free buffet. What I don’t like the hotel is its internet. It’s not free, fine, I’ll pay for RB30 for one day connection. But it’s not for one room, it’s RB30 for one device. In another word, if you have 2 devices, you have to switch between them. OK. I can tolerant that. But what’s not acceptable is the internet speed is so bad, it hardly functions. There is a free internet down the lobby, the speed is bad too. If you want to send good pictures to your friends after a day on the beach, this is not the hotel you want to stay. I also don’t like the fact that I spent extra bucks on an “ocean view, with balcony” room and only found that it’s a side view of the ocean and the balcony is so small that a bench cannot even fit there. I asked the door man for a taxi from the hotel to the Corcovado, he told me it would be a prepaid flat fee of RB50. I took a taxi on the street with meter on, it only cost me RB22.70.

Great Copacabana Vacay

This hotel was great for the price. Thr location was great & the rooms were a nice size & clean. The best part was having a little balcony with a view of the ocean. The breakfast was ok - everything a standard Brazillian breakfast includes like cheeses, meats, pastries & fruit. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Rio Trip

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is in a superb location facing the ocean. We had a room with 2 double beds with frontal ocean view. Some very small ants in the room though bed was clean. Check-in time can be made faster if they post the form that needs to be filled in for each guest online. Otherwise we had a wonderful time.

Internet Nightmare

The internet in this hotel barely worked. Internet connections were difficult to establish and frequently disappeared. The internet was unbearably slow when it was working. There was an enormous wait to check out of the hotel.

Scary and Uncomfortable Stay

Checking in and out took at least an hour due to hotel staff not properly organized. Also, for rooms with balconies, the slider doors had no latches at all. Very unsafe!!
