We chose this hotel for its location on the beautiful Ipanema beach, and as a safe, comfortable option in Rio. The location is good, although it's quite a long walk back up to Copacabana and the Metro - we'd probably stay closer to Posto 8/ the corner between the two beaches, if we were to return. The lagoon was an...

We stayed two nights here and loved exploring Ipanema. The hotel room was much smaller than expected, but it was very clean and the service was professional. Breakfast was delicious and there was free drinking water in the lobby. The roof-top bar isn't a functioning bar - you have to use the phone and call for service. The staff were...

Book this hotel accidentally on Expedia, and informed the hotel within 24 hours that I would like to cancel. 3 nights charged to Visa, which is extortion. Even the most inflexible of hotels will charge only the first night for the cancellation. Avoid, not worth the risk. Totally unreasonable management.
