This hotel was a good value for the money, especially considering the location. It is in front of Copacabana Beach andar a few blocks from the subway station.
The staff was very cordial, professional and friendly. They were the best thing about the hotel! Breakfast was also great, and the restaurant has a view to the beach.
The room was ok, it seemed like it was recently renovated but the renovation was not quite complete yet - and you could see it in the details. For example, the protective film on the showered door hasn't been removed, there was a big hole behind the air conditioning. There was a little balcony that didn't seem to have been cleaned I'm a while. Also, the air conditioning was set to a pretty high temperature (26 C) and the crew wasn't able to set it to a lower setting, so I would wake up every night sweating and had to manually turn it on.
I think that the details make the difference, and the room they gave was fell a bit short.
