Close to beach; in great neighborhood. But the hotel is old. Rooms small extremely dated (though bed comfortable enough) for the price.

Lovely view from our room onto Leblon beach

Posted Mar 7, 2017
Pros: Useful location for the beach but near metro too for getting around
Cons: The pool area could do with more tables for sitting to have a drink and take in the view
Location: Everything you need is no more than five minutes away there are good restaurants and shops with good transport on local buses
The staff are really nice and extremely helpful nothing is too much trouble

Great location + breakfast!

Posted Aug 30, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel has a great location, beach front in the middle of Leblon and 2 blocks from the new Metro Line 4. We stayed during the Olympics and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to a beach front suite (although we did pay a premium rate for the Olympics). Breakfast is definitely one of the strengths - it is very tasty and it's served in the hotel restaurant which has a view of the beach. The rooftop pool was small, but it had great views as well. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend.

way over priced

I paid 600$ CAD a night and for that kind of money you would have thought it might be a nice room. Outside of being next to the beach, that was all it had going for it. The room itself was very small. It had a king bed and that's about all you could fit in it. The bathroom looked like something out of a prison wash station where they hose down each felon. I would go out of my way to not stay here next time.

Top notch beach front hotel in beautiful Leblon

Very friendly, professional, and accommodating staff. Beach front views and amazing view from rooftop pool/bar area. High quality breakfast buffet included with the room. A bit quieter neighborhood than Copacabana or even Ipanema but it's probably the safest area in Rio.

You're paying for the location, quality is a poor

Posted Apr 4, 2016 on Hotels
This hotels selling point is its location on the beach. The hotel itself is in a need of a major revamp or overhaul. The decor is very old and the quality of the fittings worn out. The room had a bad oder coming from the drains on occasion. Only 1 out of the 3 lifts worked at any time so moving between floors and reception was very slow.

Best location in Leblon, in front on the beach

Posted Jan 4, 2016
Cons: Elevator, bathrooms, pool area
Location: Best restaurants in town close by
Overall it was a great hotel for our New Year's trip to Rio de Janeiro. Location is really good, close to shops and best restaurants in Leblon. Right in front of the sea in a quiet but still vibrant beach. Room was spacious and amenities were good. Breakfast was excellent, they were even kind enough to provide brunch till 3pm on 01/01 Overall, I liked it. However, 2 downsides for me: Old elevator, somewhat old bathroom and pool sid e(some oxide)
