    I can't find anything really. Maybe breakfast could alternate a bit, especially if people stay for more than 3-4 days. But it has plenty of choices regardless.

    I liked everything about this hotel. The Room was nice, cleaned every Day, breakfast was ok, staff very friendly, receptionists speak english and always were helpful and gave us good advice, so we never felt lost. The position is excellent, very close to copacabana beach. i can only recommend this hotel.

    The only thing which was terrible there was Wifi. It didn’t work at all, each device was disconected after few seconds so even checking e-mail was challanging.

    Delicious breakfast, very nice staff, very fast lifts - for the money you pay, you shouldnt expect more. I deffinetly recommend this place.

    Wifi died for a whole night. Staff didn't know much about good local restaurants. Poor veggie options in the cooked breakfast. Room is pretty small and dull for the money (but it's clean and quiet)

    My room was quiet on the 9th floor - i actually never saw or heard another guest - maybe I was alone on that floor... Close to the beach. Wifi was good (when it worked) Shower was strong and hot

    The gym is a lot smaller than in the photos and everything is a little outdated, but still a great place. But if you want somewhere clean and safe to stay with good links to all the great places in Rio, this is a great place to stay!

    I stayed here for 2 weeks with my two sisters. The staff were excellent, they helped us out a lot when having to contact tour agencies. They were friendly and welcoming. The location is great too (2 minute walk to the beach!) and in a safe area. Overall, we had a great time staying here and the air conditioning was much appreciated in the 35°c+ weather.

    The windows in all of the buildings are dated as are the ones in this hotel. It's appears that upgrading windows aren't a big deal in Rio. It would eliminate a lot of the street noise especially early in the morning. The air conditioner was also a little noisy
