A lovely room and lovely hotel. The staff, especially Martens at reception, were fabulous and helpful. Enjoyed a lovely massage at the spa but it really is just a nice room with massage tables. The location was good to walk to attractions in Santa Teresa and centro but didn’t always feel safe as a solo traveler. The dinning options are also limited, they only offer a buffer service for dinner which was disappointing.

One of my favorite stays in Rio, but I wish they didn’t start from scratch with me each time I arrive. It would seem they would have record of return visitors ?

Close to a lot of restaurants and bars in Lapa, easy access to them. Area around is not pleasant but you can get used to it. Hotel was full and no parking spots available. Room spacious and comfortable bed, nice shower.

Great hotel in the Lapa/Santa Teresa area! Would definitely recommend. Reception (Eliel in particular was amazing) was great, friendly and prompt service and was accommodating when we checked in early and asked for late check out. The hotel room had everything we needed and was clean. The shower doors were a little noisy but not the end of the world. Beds and pillows were comfy for us. We didn’t get to use the pool but it looked beautiful and well kept. Breakfast buffet included was a great spread too, had an omlette station, hot foods, cereal, fruit, etc. Overall we were happy with our stay here!
