Sofia, Bulgaria
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Only two good things with this hotel are its location and the quality of breakfast. Everything else - rooms, amenities, rooftop terrace is just terrible. Wi-Fi internet is not exactly working. Staff is absolutely unfriendly and unhelpful. Totally overpriced for the quality.

A very nice hotel directly at Ipanema beach. They offer beach seats and umbrellas for free. Good food. Nice restaurants in walking distance. Bus stop in front of hotel and just two blocks walking you can catch busses to Christo and Acucar. No parking. Friendly hosts. Good service. http://brasilienmitkindern.blogspot.de/2012/08/rio-mit-kindern.html

Cons: Room was so BASIC, I would definitely classify...

The 1st time I went to Rio, 26 years ago, I stayed at this hotel.

Nice staff, very good breakfast and fantastic location! The...

Quality hotel with quality service. Free breakfast was nice! Personally, I received fantastic service. Yes, the location is a dream. I considered the Porto Bay Rio in Copacabana or the Sol Ipanema.

The hotel itself is ok. The standard 3 stars hotels you can find in any city. Nothing to write home about. But the location is the best you can find. Just in the center of Ipanema, nearby good restaurants and clubs, and infront of the beach. You won't get better than that for that price (which is quite high as...

We chose this hotel because the location is excellent, Ipanema beach, with a splendid view to the cagarras islands. It is a good choice if you want a place to sleep close to everything Rio has to offer, and you don´t mind waiting for elevators. Breakfast is quite good, and if you choose a room in the upper floors you...

We stayed here only one night, because the hotel where we usually stay was booked. The hotel is tall, and the rooms are small. It is architecturally discordant with other buildings in the same area. One of the elevators was not working. The so-called Mountain View had very little view all. I would encourage you to get a beach view....
