How to Get There
I already had high expectations for the hotel for what I’ve seen on Instagram. But being hosted for a week was beyond my expectations! Everything was perfect! The staff is super friendly, specially Ricardo from the reception. Always kind and helpful. The room had the most beautiful view to the sugarloaf Mountain, also had a smart tv witch was awesome to connect YouTube and the Rooftop had a great bar with a dj by the weekends with great view of the surroundings. The breakfast is amazing and also the 24h room service. The hotel had lots of details that made a huge difference and made my trip to Rio just perfect. I definitely recommend it!
Stayed a couple of Times here this time booked larger room if staying here pay for the room category as if located at the front you have the view of the sugar loaf
If not the lead in category the rooms are very small
Front desk excellent and breakfast good
Has a roof top pool and bar with views to the sugar loaf
View from room
we stayed 3 days in the celebration suite.. the style and views are amazing! the views are actually mesmerising..the space is huge and well distributed..the shower and jacuzzi are very good..the bed is comfortable..
the bathroom amenities were not changed/refilled during our 3 days..the frigobar was not topped up one day and housekeeping could not do anything about it as apparently this service is outsourced..the tv in the sitting room was not working.
ordered room service one day and the food was poor..the orange and crisp chicken salad had mangoes and roasted chicken..the beef in the stroganoff was off..
First of all the positives were the two lovely, helpful receptionists Deborah and Suellen who advised us on places to go and helped us to book our tours while we were there, they are a credit to the hotel.
I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast as there was a variety of choices such as fruit, porridge along with eggs, bacon etc which I took full advantage of. The breakfast staff were all amazing especially Davi.
They also had a gym which was great for those into fitness.
Unfortunately this is where the positives end. We had to change rooms 2 times due to the first room not having one of the bed covers not being changed. The second room had 2 cockcroaches which were removed by the bellboy. Then our third room seemingly looked ok until we got in the bathroom. At times it smelt like the sewage, at this point we were too tired and as we were going to be out most of the time we just endured it. The service can be a little a slow and you have to call a few times to get things done.
We chose this hotel based on the TripAdvisor and Guardian newspaper ratings which were excellent so we expected more. My best advise for anyone visiting this hotel is to lower their expectations. If it were not for the staff members mentioned I would have given the hotel a lower rating. You will always be welcomed by some really friendly staff who always try to help.
Trendy hip hotel. Room was a bit small but very nicely done with upscale finishes. Wonderful rooftop with great views of city and pool. Good customer service. Close to good nightlife and shopping.Would stay again.
