Not a great first impression
Reviewed 2 days ago

When we checked in after a 12 hour flight there were 4 people behind the small reception desk. 3 of them appeared to be helping 2 ladies change rooms. The other one totally ignored us and was busy doing something else so we had to just hang around for them to check us in.

When we checked in we were told that Expedia and hotels.com did not include the resort tax and that was payable on top of what we’d already paid. This was very annoying and the hotel should do something about that.

We were told the bar on the roof was open until 11pm but when we got up there at 10.45 they said it was closed which was a disappointment. First impressions are lasting and that stuck with me.

The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was very nice with a huge shower and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was adequate but nothing to write home about. Overall an enjoyable experience. I would have given 4 stars had the check in process been smoother.

The best hotel you have to stay here

What an amazing hotel.
From the moment we arrived to check in we received with the best customer service. Every single girl on reception always greets you with a smile and is unbelievably helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The bar staff on the roof bar are always fun and make the best cocktails.
The hotel is funky, cool and very well designed. The rooms are also cool and chic, a good size with great beds and quality linen and the best pillows ever. The bathrooms have amazing showers and plenty of space for tolietries.
The Breakfast is of a very high quality with plenty of hot and cold options and fresh squeezed juices and great coffee and tea selection we could not fault it.
We travelled Peru, Chile, Argentina and now Brazil and this is by far the best hotel we stayed in. We loved it so much were coming back for the rest of our stay in Rio after a few days in Florianopolis. We truly didn't want to leave.
We also had a amazing view of the bay and of Jesus the redeemer it was spectacular though of course these rooms with the view cost a little extra though it makes your stay even more memorable.
My compliments to the managers you run a beautiful hotel in a great location made even better by the amazing staff you have working for you, especially every single member of your team on reception.
We look forward to coming back on the 16th for the last few days of our honeymoon in South America 😁😍

Nice but
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed two nights for New Years Eve. The hotel is modern and has a fresh new design. The view from the room was great. But there where some problems in the total organisation of the hotel which were not that nice: the reserved room category was not available when I arrived at the hotel, a less nice room was offered but to be fair, with discount. But even the replacement room was not ready so I had to wait although I arrived at official check-in time. The rooftop bar offers a great view but the service was slow, wrong food arrived after waiting 40 minutes for a simple sandwich. Room service needed one hour for delivery too. At checkout the room bill was wrong and it needed some emails to correct it afterwards although already mentioned during checkout. All that might be related to the time of the year as Rio is totally packed at new year, this mess left not the best impression but might be a exception though.

Great stay, worth the extra charge for the room with a view

We only stayed for 1 day, but it was lovely. We booked a room with a view to Sugar Loaf mountain based on some reviews I've read and the view was well worth it. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was very big with a huge rainfall shower. Loved the decor and the bed was very comfortable. We were able to check in an hour early and spent most of the day on the rooftop pool. The pool is small but it wasn't crowded (it was a Monday/Tuesday) there were only a few loungers, and a few cabanas, but they had plenty of seating out on the rooftop deck anyway. At night the bar was really nice and the views are spectacular.
The location of the hotel is nice, somewhat central with a mall nearby and places to eat. The Botafogo beach is not for sunbathing or swimming, but looks pretty from the window.
Overall a very relaxing experience and in the future we will definitely finish off our trips to Brazil there.
