    • Great location for carnival, excellent hotel and we booked a best rate through Booked. The staff were nice and the night manager's English was amazingly good. Bath was huge and comfortable.

      Smoky rooms.

    • Bookshops and a good wine store, great Location, the hotel is clean and modern. The service is very friendly, rooms are cleaned efficiently and its a nice drink served real real cold.

      Poor quality and the beds were rock hard and uncomfortable.

    • Near good stores and restaurants, brilliant location, the Hotel was clean and friendly staffed. The rate was excellent and we stayed a total of 4 nights, the lobby was very comfortable. Service was just ok and the room was quiet too.

      The area is very modern and a little boring.

    • The subway is really clean and very safe, the rooftop pool has a very nice view, good hotel in the best part of Copacabana. The staff is very friendly, the concierge are brilliant as are the blokes on the door and the rooms are just like flat. Free wireless is available and coffee is amazing.

      This city has a bad reputation and the towels are old too.
