Convenience and Comfort at a reasonable price
Posted Nov 26, 2015
This hotel is on a quiet residential street but very close to major attractions. The cross street Joaquim Ribero connects Copacabana beach with Ipanema beach. And the main subway station is three blocks north. The rooms are simply furnished, but it gives a stay a pleasant retro feel as if you were travelling in the 1960's. Breakfast is truly homemade and you can see the cook at work when the kitchen door opens.
The rooftop terrace and pool deck are two full floors and are excellent. I had two business meetings scheduled in the lobby and we moved to the enclosed terrace. The visitors loved it. You can see all of Ipanema Beach, plus Sugar Loaf.
If you like to work out, Rio Fitness around the corner has day passes and week passes. There is also a Rio Sul supermarket a block away.
