Positive Reviews

Good facilities nearby

Unlike some hotels, there are restaurant and bar choices nearby. Breakfast at the hotel, though, is superb value. Plus, a real tip for souvenir hunters: join ‘the girl from Ipanema’ at the Sunday Hippie Market for great arts, crafts and leather goods.

Keeping up with the neighbours!

This is a really impressive address and right next door to the Copacabana Palace which is host to international royalty … and even pop stars! Oh! If funds permit, a sea view room is a very good investment here.

A heavenly roof top pool

The views are limited, but sensational, up here and include glimpses of the world famous, Christ the Redeemer statue.

Negative Reviews

Nothing’s perfect

Even here, you have to pay for Wi-Fi, the air conditioning is noisy and some rooms have an outlook that is decidedly grim. Some don’t even have a window at all!

SOS update

Rooms are tired with outdated décor and the need for substantial upgrade to merit the tariffs charged.

Downtown city environment

If you’re unlucky, the room might look out on to uncollected rubbish and slum style buildings … similar to the down market area of an industrial city. but, of course, costing ‘mega bucks’ more!
