Exceptional 10.0
Amazing to us was that all staff seemed to have our comfort foremost in their mind. The location was fantastic.

Fair 4.0
The property is very close to the beach and has a great view from the pool. Roof top area is perfect to the watch the sunset. The disappointing part was the cleanliness of the room and the fact that nothing was offered for the great inconvenience of moving.

Excellent hotel

Decent Hotel close to Ipaname Beach
Location is close to the beach but not on the beach. We can't see the beach well from the roof top like the picture in the web site as it is partially block by a building. Not many restaurants near by and need to walk 15 mins. It is not easier to find a good, new and good price hotel at Ipaname Beach. This beach is smaller than Copocabana beach. This hotel is decent and good size and quiet new. We can't see sunset from this beach or Copocabana beach.

Fantastic hotel on Ipanema
Super helpful and professional staff (who all speak great English), nice room, great location, good breakfast and rooftop pool. Love the design of the lobby. I will stay at the hotel again for sure.

Beware of LUCK local tour company
We enjoyed the hotel's service, amenities, and free breakfast. However, we did not appreciate the service provided by the LUCK local tour company agent at our hotel. We bought 3 different excursions, which we thought were decent prices. Once we arrived at the pickup area, the same company was selling for a cheaper price for the same excursions for people who wanted to purchase the package on the spot.

Good location, friendly and helpful staff. Bed and pillows were not comfortable at all. Very firm. Other than that it was good.

Nice hotel close to the beach and good restaurants
Stayed here for 2 weeks while on a business trip in Rio, was a good hotel with friendly staff. Food options at the hotel are limited, but its within walking distance of many great restaurants. I would stay here again.

Getting worse as time goes by
Overall good stay. I was here 4 times. I have noticed that the hotel and the service has deteriorated since 2016. Especially the breakfast quality. It’s still good but now what it was. I consider this hotel in good location but overpriced. I will stay there again if I can get a deal.
