    This hotel is conveniently located at Copacabana Beach. Nice views if they give you an ocean front room, but windows are small. Hotel and furnishings are a bit dated, but otherwise good. Service was friendly and had no complaints.

    Not sure of the times but the hotel should be able to advise - they replied to me using the contact tab on their website. Breakfasts were busy, but the food was plentiful, varied and well replenished.
