Excellent choice for value-for-money travelers that look for beach and easy metro/bus transportation. The room was clean. The shower was wonderful!! The staff are very helpful. Easy to see their effort in providing a comfortable stay for guests. Personally I largely enjoyed my stay. Some of them speak english well so that was helpful. The breakfast selection was vast but rarely changed. The fresh fruit selection was very good. The pastry and coffee was good. Very close to Copacabana beach with a few good options for foods/convenience stores.
