Great location, especially on the weekend when the road shuts down and you can walk for hours by the beach and sure… In either direction; local shopping hip and trendy hotel with great rooftop bar. Stayed for almost a week, with limited staff interaction or personalization for mice day…; Deborah at the front desk what is the warmest and friendliest. As someone who stays and travels quite often, have to say the housekeeping was the weakest aspect… Both and consistency and in cleaning quality. Between no trash pick up one day and non-restocking of amenities others…, Seems like minimal interaction with the room what is the goal for a stay over. Twice during my stay I asked for the room to be serviced prior to 12 noon as I planned on returning from sightseeing and taking a nap before going out that evening. For the majority of the day the room was not serviced by 4 PM, so if you had been siting and managed to make it back before four it was hard to sit and relax in the room before dinner. Really enjoyed the rooftop bar and breakfast; how to say by far breakfast was the strongest aspect of this hotel… Always hot always fresh and always an amazing selection.

I surprised my wife with a trip to Rio. This hotel was perfect. We had the Sugar Loaf room with a great view of Sugar Loaf and Christ The Redeemer. The air conditioner went out in our original room. The friendly and welcoming staff quickly moved us to a cooler room with the same view. They left us an apology gift of homemade candies that were fantastic. The staff were really accommodation and tended to our needs. They recommended shoping and restaurants, called taxis and so much more. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Rio. Thank you to all the employees!

Frustrante, vale apenas pela vista
A vista do rooftoop realmente é o único ponto positivo do hotel. De forma geral, o hotel é antigo com uma “maquiada” na decoração para parecer novo. Quarto sem abertura de janela que não tem circulação de ar, cama antiga, quarto antigo. Café da manhã bem ruim, parecia que tudo era velho… e em um ambiente fechado e escuro. o pessoal é muito atencioso mas realmente não compensa o valor. O cardápio do bar é bem limitado e caro, poderia ser muito melhor. Não nos hospedaremos novamente.
