Reviewed 2 September 2017

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with a friend. There was some construction going on but it did not inconvenience us in any way. The staff was friendly and we had an easy check in experience. Booking was weird because they had a 4 night promotion going on but you couldn't use it when staying for 5 nights, so we had to create 2 separate bookings to take advantage of the 4-night discount. That said, they did allow us to stay in the same room the whole time, which was nice and clean and comfortable. I did not love the clear sliding doors on the bathroom (when you're sharing with a friend, this can be slightly awkward), but other than that it was pretty great. The roof deck had a sweet view of the entire beach. The beach is directly across the street, and the location was absolutely fantastic and walkable to tons of places. Breakfast was included as well.

The hotel has one of best location in Rio de Janeiro. I didn't need to take a cab, because I could go by foot to all the places that I love it.My room was facing the Leblon beach, it was fantastic. The room was modest, but the bed was very comfortable, also they don't have carpet, I am allergic, so I consider a very important detail for my well being. The staff was very nice.

This hotel, despite been old, it has, in my opinion, the best location in Rio. It is in front of the beach and there are many restaurants and shops around where you can just walk to.
In my visit, this month, the sauna wasn't working. My last visit in December we had a energy shot down which made us move to another place for one night.
It is really necessary some reform to be the best in Rio.
But, I would come back

Had no complaints, great location. Service was good and when we didn't have time for a whole day at the beach, we spent the day by the pool on the roof. Space there is limited but we still managed to find chairs since most would opt to be at the beach anyway. Breakfast is hearty with many options and a wonderful view of the promenade. The hotel offers beach towels and chairs for its guests.

I can't state enough how friendly and helpful the staff was. Diego and Aline at the front desk provided everything from tips on where to eat to umbrellas and assistance with my iPhone charger. Cleidiston also personally showed me around as a private tour guide/Portuguese tutor and was excellent.

The location of the hotel is both scenic (right on the beach) and within a block of great cafes and shops. Ipanema beach and shopping is only a 5 minute walk as well.

With a great location - it couldn't be better the prices are by far too high for what you get

The hotel is very old , the room that I got looked like it was 30 years old and have never been renewed

I was on a business trip and I had a meeting during the breakfast and I've paid around 90 (!!!) reais for one extra breakfast - 90?!?!?!

I spend several days a week in rio the janeiro and tried several different hotels and I know the prices are always too high for what you get but I've paid less at Hyatt (at barra) - no need to compare right? - and there are much better options like Ipanema Inn where I'm writing this review - cheaper and (much!!) better (but there are others like Everest or Ipanema plaza etc...)


Spent two days at marina but.... probably never again

And by the way, the people at reception they could at least smile (unless they will charge for that extra service :) )
