I would like to create official claim. During my stay I need 7!!!! time to change my room, mostly because of terrible noise (hotel is under construction). Internet connection didn't work 70%. It was not 4 star hotel, it was not even 1 star hotel. Terrible stay.

A new addition to Copacabana hotel scene the Grand Mercure is currently (February 2020) being totally renovated and updated to the levels expected by fans of the brand. Renovation is probably a reason it currently offers such good value for money on Expedia. Room had already been updated. Nice little dip pool and terrace on roof. Good location.

Might pass as a 2-Star hotel, but barely
Check in went well but the rest went downhill from that point. Once in the room decided to place valuables in the safe and go out to get something to eat. Safe was not working so on our way back in from eating we stopped by the front desk to report. They tried to fix, we stayed up until 1am giving them time to fix. Did not get fixed. Went to take a shower and found they had only left 1 towel, so again we wait. The safe was supposed to be fixed the next morning, again we wait, when it finally reached 11 am we told them to forget it until later as the day was half over. Did not have the room serviced that day as too many valuables out and no safe. They finally brought an old safe and sat it in the bottom of the closet. Next day the door handle fell off in our hand when we opened the door. One of the employees at the front desk said he would place vouchers so we could have breakfast on the 12th floor the last two days, said they would slide them under the door so we would have the next morning, that never happened. More bad experiences but no time to write more. This is nota 4 Star hotel as claimed. Wall paper is peeling off the walls. Bathroom was moldy and dirty behind the door.
