            Friendly staff, helpful. . Excellent breakfast but monotonous. Free internet WiFi

            The tour guide recommended by the hotel was very dissappointing due to language barrierWas scared to go out alone from the hotel after 9pm since the sourronding area did not look safe. Was too far away from the rio convention centre and took more than an ahour to reach due to traffic jam. Would not extent my check out time(12 noon) by even 1 hour

            The hotel is at the very beginning of Copacabana, convenient for trips to the city but far from trendiest Copayment spots and some 5 mm away from Ipanema. Hotel staff and breakfast - these are the two main, and very substantial pro's of the hotel. Staff speak good English. Breakfast boast good local fruit and is rather decent overall. And free wifi, which works every other minute.

            Hotel rooms are rather outdated. Crappy fake hardwood flooring, no carpet. Beach sand get all over it. Merely painted walls - looked like a hostel. The safe is from the 19th century, and still you have to pay additional to get the lock... But furniture, the bed and the bathroom were good, so it broke even. Still pretty pricy, although Copacabana is not a cheap place, I suspect there are places that are better value for money.

            I have spent a long week-end to Augusto's Rio, and the quality of the service compare to the location and the cost are really very good.

            If the room will be locate face to the street you will hear some noise, due to the traffic.

            Clean, confortable room and bed; good space on the bathroom. Breakfast is very good comparing to similar rate hotels in Rio.

            The room had a decent size and the breakfast was abundant and good.The location is so-so, in the leme neighborhood which is on the tip of copacabana. Good if you want to see the Pao de Acucar. Very heavy traffic makes it hard to cross Princess Isabel st where the hotel is located.

            The staff was not particularly useful. They were out of maps of Rio and the taxi to the airport the hotel offered me charged 70 reales as opposed to the 50 I payed hailing a cab in the street at the hotel door. The safe in the room was smaller than those I've seen at other hotels but at least there was one.

            Poor English in the staff, I arrived at 12.30, check-in from 2PM and they do not give me the room until 2PM. I am quite sure the room was ready at noon....

            Sauna did not work. Pool dirty. Only 3 sunlounges around pool. Took 3 days to get floor cleant in room. Grout in shower had mould. White towels were a shade of grey.

          • Older travelers

            Very friendly and helpful staff, one of whom saved us a lot of money by recommending a bus over a taxi!

            Our bathroom was in serious need of modernising. Unpleasant marks on floor; mould in otherwise excellent shower. The art deco marble has had its day, sad to say. Despite this, would recommend on staff, price and location.
