Positive Reviews

Tasty breakfast

The breakfast on offer in the hotel's restaurant is one of the highlights of the property as a whole. Travellers find the food excellent and say plenty of variety is available as well.

Outstanding location near the beach

Very few locations in Rio de Janeiro are more convenient than this one, report visitors, as it is directly between both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Numerous restaurants surround the property and there is also a metro station nearby.

Friendly, warm employees

Workers at the hotel do everything possible to keep guests happy, which is appreciated. Travellers find the staff warm and approachable throughout their stays.

Negative Reviews

Very basic hotel

Travellers complain about the property being extremely basic, not offering any additional amenities for the money. Guests are disappointed because the hotel doesn't provide any stand-out features.

Dated rooms and decor

This is an older hotel and travellers say the rooms could use an update. The furniture and decor in the rooms appear to be out of the 1970s, according to visitors, making guests feel as though a renovation is needed.

Noisy at times

Some rooms are noisy, making it difficult for visitors to relax. Guests report hearing sound from the streets around the hotel, which is an issue at night.
