Very nice accommodations near beach
This hotel has a great location right on the beach at Copacabana. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The rooms and lobby are very clean. The beds are nice and hard. The rooms have small fridges and coffee makers. Our room had a cozy balcony. On the top floor is a small swimming pool with fabulous views and a bar and fitness center. The rooms are a little small compared with American hotels but equivalent to those in Europe. Several good restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. The free breakfast is really extraordinary, offering a wide variety of fruits, juices, cheese, breads as well as hot fare. They even had champagne. We enjoyed our stay here very much.
Nice room, helpful staff
We asked and received a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Clean and modern. Breakfast was varied and delicious. Staff in particular was very helpful in every respect and also parked our car overnight when we needed that done.
Maybe pick a different area to stay in Rio
Make sure that you know exactly which room you want before you make a reservation. We made a mistake when we booked a room, and even though they had the correct room available, they would not give it to us. The front desk was very condescending and not at all accommodating. Plus the Copacabana area is very unsafe even in daylight. My pendant was ripped off my neck while walking along the promenade even with lots of people around at 2 in the afternoon. Apparently that happens to a lot of people and there isn't much that the police can do. Stay somewhere else.
New Years Eve party
Although we didn't actually stay here, our group of three people spent New years Eve here on the 5th floor restaurant party. The restaurant was decorated splendidly for NYE and tables etc were well set. We shared a table with people from Australia ( of Brazilian and Chinese heritage) and all got on well. Food was served buffet style and could not be faulted for quality or variation of selection - cold cuts , salads , seafood , salmon , beef , extensive vegetarian options ans also top class desserts. The NYE package included some drinks - champagne , local beer , water , soft drinks , whisky and white or red wine served by the excellent waiting staff - there was certainly no shortage of drinks. There was also some entertainment before midnight where a group of dancers entertained and also a DJ played from about 20.30 when we arrived to about 03.00. View from the 5th floor out to Copacabana ( just across the road) was excellent from the large windows and we took in the fireworks and crowd sounds at midnight by opening the windows to hear the atmosphere. Could not be faulted as a NYE venue.
Wonderful hotel located on the beach
Great English speaking staff (very important here in Brazil where many people don’t speak much English) who are nice, professional, and very helpful. The location is perfect on the beach. While we were here was the opening show of the carnaval season and we had a view of the stage from the 20th floor of the hotel - only missing out on the tear gas that the police used to disperse the crowd at the end of the concert! From that level you have a good view of the Christ the Redeemer statue and the length of the Copacabana beach. There is a shallow pool to cool off in surrounded by sun loungers and full bar with service all day. All with fabulous views . Breakfast is served buffet style and is one of the best we have encountered anywhere. Lunch is available back on the 20th floor and dinner is back on the 5th floor.
