Location, location, location - this is the reason i stayed there and it could not be beaten. Only a few blocks away from the Ipanema beach and upscale Leblon.
Staff really wonderful - always smiley, always friendly, always helpful.
Now it goes downhill a bit...
Breakfast mediocre - not much choice, quality unimpressive
Rooms - very small, student-like - definitely not for families, young kids etc.
Clothes smelling of mould after a few days in their wardrobe.
Tv not working, aircon very old...so go for it if you don't intend to stay in your hotel much...
- Breakfast included
