The staff at the hotel were amazing, they really made it perfect and there mannerism was gratefully appreciated. They go out of their way to make you feel pampered and comfortable. The hospitality in this hotel is world class and I can't wait to return for another stay with them. The rooms are so clean. There are taxis to take a tour just some 50 meters from the door. It took us 15 minutes to go to sugar bread and 20 reais which are almost 6 us dollars. The bikes to rent are practically crossing the street and cost also 5 dollars a day. There is a great restaurant in the same block. It is in the best place of Copacabana.
