Location was great.a market other side of the street.near metro station. The place of this hotel between Copacabana et Ipanema. Staff were very friendly & helpful - there was always someone who spoke english, goes above and beyond to make you as happy as possible. They really knew how to make their hotel guests feel special. One of the best experiences so far. They truly went out of their way and accomodated every request I had. The room was exactly as it looked in the picture online. Clean, basic room, good wifi. Nice place for short stays. Quiet room, with very good blackout curtains.
