8/10 Very good

Friendly staff, comfortable but a little tired.
Really friendly and helpful staff. Great rooftop views from the pool deck (albeit don’t expect to swim as pool is small.) rooms a little tired but comfortable. Not enough lifts / elevators and spent a lot of time waiting for them! Photography on site certainly shows the best side of the property. That said, the friendly staff and views meant it was still a great base to explore a wonderful city.

10/10 Exceptional

We ask for a room with a balcony and view of the ocean, it was stunning. The bed was a king size, great shower, the food was excellent we had the breakfast in their restaurant(beautiful view of copacabana)and dinner by the pool on the 20th floor some amazing views. Would add some usb charges in the light and maybe on the desk like some hotels have to make it easier for changing cellphones and electronics. The staff was outstanding! Would definitely return.

6/10 Good

My 10 day stay was overall okay. I'd like to point out a few things so customers can know prior to booking. Construction is still happening & gym access isnt freely available at the moment & the pool is really small. There is a very obvious mildew smell everywhere in the hotel including the in room closets so if you put your clothes in there It'll cause your clean clothes to smell like mildew. Sleeping in is nearly impossible since the cleaning lady will loudly complain about being unable to clean your room right outside your door. I was jet lagged & tired my first few days so I wanted to sleep in, just to be woken up by loud arguing. Also walls are paper thin so youll hear your neighbors. There was an incident where a man entered my room without my consent, i was napping & heard a knock on the door, as I was getting up he opened the door and was about to walk inside. He was startled to see i was inside, then asked me something about the mini bar. I said no & he left. Doors do not have a door guard or additional lock, meaning anyone w/ card access can access your room which is scary. So 2 people acess your room, housekeeping in the afternoon & a guy that checks the minibar at any random time, he came by once at 11am & a different day around 3pm. Other times I was away from my room. I never touched anything inside the minibar so it was pointless for him to keep going in to check, there should be a different system in place. Front desk staff & hotel location are great.
