Fabulous 8.6 From 239 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good but overpriced for what the room
Stay was ok. Area looked a bit shady at night because of the escorts in the area but it was far enough (1 -2 blocks) away to not be too crazy. Hotel is nice. Breakfast is A1 with a lot of great options. Rooms are super small. We were given an "upgrade" so we can't imagine what the regular room would look like. For the bathroom, my spouse and I had an ongoing joke about going to the telephone booth as it's SUPER small. Overall, not bad but for the price paid, can find better options.

Great hotel in Copa
Nice hotel in Copa, just in front of the metro which is very convenient. Many restaurants near the hotel. Rooms are modern and very nice. The housekeeping could improve but other than that I was very satisfied.
Francois, ca6 night trip
Good 6.0
Not bad
The location of the hotel is great (very close to the beach and metro). It has friendly staff and the only good amenities are the A/C and bed. However, the rooms are not cleaned well, the bathroom layout is bad, and when there is an issue the hotel does not fix it. Would reccomend to stay for a short visit only.

Cannot beat the location
Perfect location ! two blocks away from Copacabana beach, right across the street from the Metro. Plenty of shops and restaurants around. Rooms are small but very comfortable and recently remodeled. The price was very good for such a good and convenient place to stay. Breakfast was really good.

Recommended for a trip to Rio
Hotel perfectly located across a Metro station and just 2 blocks away from the famous Copacabana beach. Plenty of restaurants and shops around. The price paid for the room was very affordable, and it was a very comfortable room even though it was small. Good breakfast and wifi signal. This hotel looks brand new.

Nice, Comfy and quiet.
The hotel is very comfy. Clean and quiet. Good retreat in the middle of busy Copacabana. Location is great. Good service and very yummy breakfast. For a 3-star hotel I liked the place.

Would not stay again
Gave us the wrong bedroom twice, we had paid for a more expensive one. Bedsheets smelled used. The lobby got flooded because of the rain and there was nobody to clean it or help us get out of the place.

I found this place to be excellent value.
The room was clean and comfortable. Great shower. The breakfast was a good spread, although it was always difficult to find a clean table: the staff were working hard; there just weren't enough tables. WiFi was workable. All staff were outstandingly helpful. Great location, only a short walk to the beach, or to anything else. Directly across the road from the metro station. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
