Let me begin by saying that I've given this hotel a 4-star rating on the Brazil scale. For a U.S. hotel, it would be about a 3.5 - but the hotels in Brazil seem a bit different. :) First, the location is awesome - right on Ipanema Beach (well, there's a street you have to cross first, but it's right...

Perfectly positioned overlooking Ipanema Beach, this hotel provided a great buffet breakfast and was only 1 block from the famous 'Garota de Ipanema' bar and restaurant where the famous song 'The Girl from Ipanema' was written. Courteous and friendly staff helped to make our short 3 day stay in Rio memorable. It's not a cheap hotel, but not much in...

This is a really comfortable and well run hotel in the best possible location overlooking the beach at Ipanema (which we felt was preferable to Copacabana as it is slightly less frenetic but just as interesting and beautiful). The hotel is well situated for restaurants nearby in the streets behind the hotel and also for buses and taxis to take...

Only two good things with this hotel are its location and the quality of breakfast. Everything else - rooms, amenities, rooftop terrace is just terrible. Wi-Fi internet is not exactly working. Staff is absolutely unfriendly and unhelpful. Totally overpriced for the quality.

A very nice hotel directly at Ipanema beach. They offer beach seats and umbrellas for free. Good food. Nice restaurants in walking distance. Bus stop in front of hotel and just two blocks walking you can catch busses to Christo and Acucar. No parking. Friendly hosts. Good service. http://brasilienmitkindern.blogspot.de/2012/08/rio-mit-kindern.html

The 1st time I went to Rio, 26 years ago, I stayed at this hotel.

Nice staff, very good breakfast and fantastic location! The...
