The hotel is well suitable as tourist hotel. But you should not with the expectation to come, a wellnesshotel to find. It was already a bit older, but it was all clean so it as schlafunterkunft in order. A bit inconvenient was the street noise in the night, here you need a good night's sleep. Free wi-fi is included. read hotel review

    The room size was good, but you could somewhat newer. The street noise (we had a room to the road) was in the night but annoying on reason not to soundproof windows.

    The pool is not very large, for a refreshment in the evening was enough however. The bar at the pool was never manned, which was a shame.

    The service was good, there was even a deutschsprachiches reception team. Other staff was always english speaking, what you in Brazil not fundamentally assume can!

    The location is the big advantage, only 200-300 meters to the Copacabana and ipanema.

We were there during our trip through Brazil for 3 nights in the hotel south american Copacabana. Hotel is located on a street after two blocks walk to the Copacabana leads. This is very good location In the proximity are 2 fast food outlets and supermarket. Staff at the reception speaks very well english speak a bit of german (2 persons) and is very helpful. Very good internet free of charge! The hotel is clean, the breakfast was good. But. The restaurant and the breakfast room were too small. Partly would be a renovation appropriate. The ipanema beach is within ... walking distance. The view from the roof over the favella and to the corcovado is fabulous, especially in the night. read hotel review

It is a 'typical' city hotel. High-rise building with lobby and front desk, and breakfast room/restaurant on the ground floor also a bar available. From 1st floor the rooms accommodated. On the roof terrace there is a (very) small pool. Not pompous or impressive, but they are well maintained and clean. In of the lobby some seating. As well as two computer for the free internet access. Breakfast included. Guests international and all age groups. Hotel is also used by tour groups use. read hotel review
  • Room
    4.0

    Rooms are big enough and functional furnished. Bathroom was clean and with good shower and lots of storage facilities. Hair dryer available. Air conditioning available, as well as safe (free of charge). Tv available, but no german channels. We had a room to the rear with views of backyard and a favela. Not much of a view, but quiet. Rooms to the front were louder because of the road.

  • Sport & Leisure
    3.0

    Small pool on the roof terrace available. Really very small, but for cooling after a long city tour enough. Some beach chairs available, as well as some seating. Barservice not generally available, but call be requested. Here also a sauna available-with over 30 °c was this but didn't use it.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is situated in a residential area. Even if there is no direct beach hotel is - the location between ipanema and Copacabana is great. Both beaches are on foot distance. As are shops nearby (small supermarket, pharmacy and so on), and restaurants on foot to reach. If you want more shopping to have would like, in the district of ipanema find (also on foot distance). Excursions can in the hotel at the front desk be booked, but not with german leadership. Metro station in the proximity. Bus stop directly opposite the hotel. Business district and the city center with the metro distance.

  • Service
    4.0

    Staff very friendly. No german, but at the front desk also english is spoken. Check in was done very quickly. At the front desk you also got towels free of charge to the beach (as the from the room not to the beach should take). Room cleaning regular and good. Transfer service to the airport can the front desk be requested (flat 80 reals ).

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The breakfast is in buffet form offered. The selection was sufficient and the dishes of good quality. There is a selection of hot and cold dishes, to sweet pastries and fruit. No service, but quick clearing of the table. The atmosphere is loose - no allocations of seats or examination of the room number. The breakfast room is also restaurant. But in the time, in the we were there, not much used. We have better ate out.

Very good location between Copacabana and Ipanema, 2 blocks away from the beach. Subway station not far away, buses to various locations in the town on the doorstep. Good shops and restaurants nearby ( as long as not directly at the beach are the prices also okay). Tourist attractions are from there with bus and metro very easy to reach. The room with three single beds the room was fine and for the big city big enough. In the corners or if a piece of furniture a little bit crazy is, the ' dirty corners' out-it could be a bit ... clean be. At night it was despite 8th floor by traffic on the street sometimes a bit noisy (only single glazing-typical in Brazil). The air conditioning worked perfectly, but also not the newest (somewhat loud and in some spots in the area much also ). The breakfast buffet was extensive ( coffee, tea, various fresh juice, different bread/ rolls, jams, honey, butter (everything packed), a variety of cereals, a lot of different fresh fruit, scrambled egg, Bacon, sausages, soup) and was, although it altogether was very empty, always refilled. The staff at the reception were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast service very nice staff. On of the kids roof terrace with a small pool it is not very inviting, but for a short break okay. In this city you will not in the hotel remain?! Sauna was not used by US. Altogether for a city break really recommendable! read hotel review
