    Very good

    Hotel staff was very willing to help with language barriers, directions to tourist sites, etc. Breakfast, which was included with room price, was excellent - many choices and pleasant room. Conveniently located.

    The price was excessive considing the amenities at the hotel. However, it was Carnaval time and I know they jack up the prices at that time. The room wasn't as clean as it should have been, but was okay since we didn't spend a lot of time there anyway.

    The convenience for the city and the beach

    asked bell captain for taxi to airport he quoted above normal so I expected a nice car, it was a heap, use a city metered taxi.

    Great location, if you want to be around the Copacabana. There is, however, no nightlife and very few restaurants in walking distance.Make sure you have your stay planned, the reception is not very forward (or knowledgeable) with booking you tours, etc.

    The hotel has an overall funny smell.

    The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    The road outside is very noisy so if you are a sensitive sleeper, don't choose this hotel. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was not perfect and the bed was squeaky. The breakfast wasn't very nice. All in all this is a pretty dated hotel but fine if you are not spending much time there.

    Walking distance from Copocabana, so that's attrative. However, not at top location.

    Hotel rather simple (tough lcd tv in room), breakfast not the best and simple accomodation.

    The roof top pool is a lovely feature and the rooms were large and clean.

    The receptionists were at times abrupt and rude, although I think this may be due to their limited English skills. Despite the other reviews, I did not find the staff very knowledgeable at all. When I asked about the free internet they said that the wifi was free if you had your own computer as I did not they suggested I use another hotel's internet! Prior to arriving at the hotel, I emailed the hotel three times requesting a pick up from the airport. I am yet to receive a response.

    The reception, it is nice. But the rest is totally neglected, as for the beds and furniture, as for the staffs actitude. Never again.

    Rude staff, poor food, noisy, dirty. Looks like a motel once you are inside your room.

    The hotel was close to the Rio Sul Mall and not a bad walk from the beach

    The room had many broken things, the elevators are very slow, the front desk staff spoke English, but were not overly helpful.

    Great location, Nice staff. Good breakfast.

    Nothing particularly wrong... A simple "European" styles tourist hotel. Clean but not fancy. Road noise from busy Copa street was noticeable.
