    The staff there are all very helpful and friendly (so was 1 or 2 that we've come across at jw Marriott - also at Copacabana - when we passed by there one night). We were offered quality service which turned our trip to Rio de Janeiro to be a positive one, without which it makes a difference.

    Don't book in this hotel....It's one of the worst place in Rio. It's like a 2 stars hotel and not 4 stars one

    So much things: - it was impossible to sleep with the air conditionner.... toooo much noisy - Even the price was good vs. others hotels, the rooms were horrible with a very bad smell (I checked different room as I wanted to change) + teeming in the bathroom - THe reception guy was unfriendly and everytime I was asking for something it was like a service - Last I would really recommend to be in Ipanema and not copacabana...as it is more pleasant

    I comparison to other hotel in Rio (we stay in three) this one was the best.

    As all hotels in Rio, this hotel is overpriced. E.g. we didn't have internet connection, and fitness centre was very small and damaged.

    People were very kind and friendly. The infrastructure was great.

    My only complaint is that they should have a baby chair in the restaurant.

    The hotel has an ok location being in a fairly vibrant neighbourhood a few minutes from Copacabana beach and a metro stop and near lots of local shops. Some members of staff on the reception desk spoke good English and were able to accurately answer our questions. Those whose English was not good were still pleasant and did their best to help. The cleaning staff always greeted me with a hello and a smile. There was a decent breakfast selection including various breads, pastries, cold cuts, sliced cheeses, cake, cereals, fruit and some hot food - bacon, eggs and sausages. There was a very good selection of English speaking cable tv channels on a brand new flat screen tv for those moments when you find yourself in the hotel for whatever reason. Finally, the wifi is free (many other hotels have a charge) but unpredictable.

    The hotel is very tired looking. It appears that they are trying to renovate but the renovation is being done at a very basic level - essentially a lick of paint here an there. The fixtures and fittings are old (some of them look like they date back to the 70s) and I noticed some cracking in the bathroom sanitary ware. The lighting in the rooms is poor adding to the overall depressing effect. The gym is a joke. It is located on the roof in a glass structure which is fully exposed to the sun and there is no air conditioning. The equipment also looked tired and run down. Overall, this hotel is fine but definately not a 4 star hotel by any kind of international standard. It is best for people who don't care about staying somewhere pretty.

    Good staff at the front desk, esp Enrico. Good location - approx 6 min walk from copacabana. Wifi access excellent in lobby, fair/good in room. Breakfast good/average.

    Aircon was not working in the room despite asking for it to be fixed. Wifi was temperamental in the room (good in the lobby). Breakfast was average.

    Good location, you can reach Copacabana on foot. Very good breakfast (both for sweet and salty)

    Old furniture Our room was rather noisy, because it led to the main street

    Good

    The hotel is in a very good location, close to Copacabana beach, has a nice little pool on the roof top and breakfast is nice. It is clean but a little loud. For the price they charged however I would have expected the air condition to work, which unfortunately was not the case. At the reception they did not comment much, before I really finished telling them what the problem was they stopped me and said "we'll send someone". That someone never came and the air con never worked. If Benidorm Palace was some cheap place I could have accepted that, but for that price you can get better. I did stay in another place a few days later (same area, same price) and it was certainly a better experience...

    Air condition did not work, no one came to help/fix it.

    Very good

    Ideal location for sight seeing rio, fantastic view of the Christ Redeemer from the roof top pool area.

    A four star hotel in rio, is not the same as a four star hotel in the uk (might just make a three star rating in the uk). Each occupant was only given one pillow, room would also benifit from tea/coffee making facilities.

    Clean rooms, helpful and polite staff.

    The room decor was very dated. The internet connection was just plain terrible. Expect to pay top dollar prices for any hotel in Rio. Not good value for money. Brazillian 4 star equates to European 3 star

    The staff was perfect and the food of the chef Neves was very good!

    The noise coming from the bathroom and next door building was unbearable.

    Guest rating

    Clean, close to metro station and local (slightly downmarket) shops. Room was quiet despite busy street and had a good view of the Copa skyscrapers and hillside. Easy to get cabs.

    Tacky dated (but clean) decor reminiscent of a "love motel", our suite was just very weird in that way so not relaxing. Street is a little downmarket - if you can afford it better to stay close to or in Ipanema/Leblon area which is calmer and more upscale. Staff is disinterested but did their jobs. Room was very clean and bed was adequately comfortable. We had an executive suite which was very, very spacious - including a jacuzzi inside the bathroom which we did not use (yuk) and a small sauna.
