    Fabulous

    I liked the view; the ocean view was amazing during the breakfast at the restaurant, as well from my room. I liked the bed, it was so comfortable.

    I just did not like the food menu at the breakfast, it was the same items every day, they did not change anything at it, and it was poor items.

    Very good

    The room was good with a very nice tall bed. The view was great as our room overlooked both the favela and the Leblon and Ipanema beach. ( make sure you ask for that view on a high floor to avoid road noise and favela only views) The hotel has direct access to a beach ( not private). Reception and concierge spoke english which is great as this is not a given in brazil. It was easy and quick to get a regular meter taxi from the hotel. Good free tv channels with English movies was a plus. One morning they forgot our breakfast and when they finally brought it 1 Hour later they did not charge for it without us asking or complaining. We liked that. Hotel felt safe at all times and areas. Nice grounds with pools, tennis, beach. Must be great to play tennis there.

    The location is a bit misleading, especially for Rio first timers who think they are going to Leblon. The hotel is not in Leblon , but a short walk up a relatively deserted road. It looks scarier than it is and we walked it a couple of times during daylight hours, no problem at all. - Some people may have concerns over having a view on the favela and should be conscious of that fact. We actualy found it quite interesting as you have a direct and rare view into the favela architecture. - Internet is paid, but not yet available in the rooms. I think they are changing this however as we got one day of free Internet in the room and then It was suddenly cut. - Traffic : be careful when taking a taxi to the hotel between 5 and 7 pm as the last 1 km from the end of Leblon to the hotel gets packed and takes about 30 mins, 3 lanes + 2 lanes all converge into 1 lane and as you can imagine it stops to a halt. It can be frustrating so be aware of it. Finally, this is a big American style hotel in which you feel safe but will not feel like a local. It is however well priced compared to the likes of Sofitel, just budget an extra 30 real per day for taxis, or arrange your schedule with the hotel shuttle.

    Fabulous

    Location was the best among the hotel in Rio. Staff were friendly. Gym and pool were nice too. Free shuttle was another good points.

    Old building and charging 10% more for the third night because of exchange rate rising!!!
