We were here for only a partial day having to leave our cruise and not wanting to wait for 12 hours at the airport. The staff was very helpful - sending us to a great restaurant, help in finding something to do for a short time (historical museum) and arranging our transport to the airport. I would stay here for longer if necessary.

The staff was nice. There were four adults in our party and the rooms were able to accomodatae us comfortably. The breakfast was good. Although I do not think travelers should depend on people in other countries speaking their language, it was helpful that several staff did make that effort for us.
I can't say enough good things about the people of Brazil. They are kind to each other, to their children, and to ignorant tourists. I didn't see anyone being rude or obnoxious in two full weeks. I'm going to look more into their child-rearing practices. They have something going on that we need to learn to turn out such nice folks!

This hotel is really close to the MAC museum. This area has the best view of Rio. Smaller less crowded local beach access is near by. Food is decent, drinks are good. The room is the best part, it's a very large standard room size. Had a comfortable sofa and table with four chairs. The staff is the best here. I stayed in 3 hotels that are highly rated in the Rio Area this one is the best. The rooms are modern and clean. The pool is really large. I would stay here again.

The hotel is lovely with apartment type rooms. Room cleaning service was very late and didn't happen at all one day, otherwise service was excellent. They said they couldn't have two beds instead of one, which was a bit annoying as one of us ended up sleeping in the sofa. Also, the internet connection was incredibly slow.
Otherwise a great little hotel and I would not hesitate in recommending it.
