    Very good

    The location is nice. It is not fair from the beach and there are few nice places to eat around the hotel. It is not dirty.

    The shower was very bad and the room needs an update, everything looks old.

    Very good

    The staffs are goods and breakfast is so good. My second room (after my chance) is comfort, big, clean, etc..

    In my first day I stayed in short room (very short). Be careful, because I think this case is common when you made your booking by bookink.com. You need to pay more 10% (not included in price in Booked.net) . The distance from hotel to Beach is around 8 square.

    I liked the breakfast, the bed and the shower.

    I didn't like the distance from the hotel to the beach and a woman staff at the balcony (very boring, the one with a small hair, like a man, I do not know her name).

    Breakfast was very decent, with lots of fruit.

    The lounge smelled funny, as well as the room (although in the room the smell was not so strong). The walls were thin as paper, we had to call reception twice to complain about the noise at 4 A.M., we could hear absolutely everything in the room next door. There was also a very loud noise every time someone flushed or used the shower in the room above us. Not to mention the decoration, everything looked very old. There was a duvet with no cover, very anti-hygienic.

    Buffet breakfast

    Not good value for money . We booked a double room and got twin. We asked the manager and he promised to change but never did. Basically he lied. Concierge would charge extra money to book tours and basically lie to keep extra money. One tour they told us cost 120 dollars and two hours late when we went back to book he said 170 dollars and plainly said that he never said 120. Basically he forgot how much he asked us earlier . Charged us taxes twice. My bed was broken. Safe and air con wasn't working and they didn't bother to check overnight and I slept in a warm room. Next door neighbours were loud and playing loud music all night when asked concierge over phone they hang up phone and when called again they said they will come up and ask them to be quiet but they never did. Basically they never did what they said. Worst ever hotel experience .

    Good price, 5 block from the beach, clean and tidy

    Just the location.

    The hotel is old and is under a construction, so, by 7h30 am you can listen all the noise. Besides that, rooms are really poor, the bathtub was disgusting and the breakfast simple awful.

  • 6.2
    Good

    Nice location: only a few blocks from the beach on a quiet street in Copacabana.

    I think that all hotels in Rio are overpriced, and this one was no exception. For the quality of the rooms and the breakfast, the price was high.

    Guest rating

    I will try to keep it short: 1. It's overpriced, I mean REALLY overpriced. We moved (ran) out of this hotel when we had the chance and got a room at Sofitel (5 stars) with two huge rooms instead of one for only +30% of the price we paid for this Palace 2. WiFI doesn't work 3. They have an Ethernet cable somewhere in the room, you can get a decent connection via it (the plug is behind the bed) 4. The rooms are dark and old 5. The air-conditioner is terribly loud and leaks in the room 6. We asked our room to be cleaned for two days in a row (a few times a day during each day) 7. The telephone wasn't repaired during three days (it didn't work at all) 8. The reception was ok, concierge service was fine 9. We left the hotel early, because of it's outrageous service and condition, but of course we didn't get our money back (we had to pay in advance when booking) 10. The breakfast was good for a three star hotel

    The staff are helpful in organising taxis - which are an essential form of transport. A word of caution though, there are 'unofficial' ad-hoc 'taxi drivers' who hang around outside the hotel and are happy to ferry you around in private cars. You won't get a receipt, and they aren't insured.

    The air con is inadequate and very noisy in the guest rooms. The rooms are small and very basic, but clean enough. The lift is very noisy and can be clearly heard in all the rooms, and from very early (04,00am daily) the noise is intrusive, and the and air con for the dining room on the ground floor is irritating. Things like TV remote's didn't work in mine or my 3 colleagues rooms - I stayed here before and found the same thing. The facilities are minimal, and there is no lounge area, or bar. The website photos are deceptive, giving a misleading impression of size - when you see the rooftop pool you will understand.

    Good location and pool and gym. Breakfast was good

    quite expensive but cheapest we could find in Copacabana. The area is very expensive in general

    The location is ok, near the main avenuea in copacabana. Breakfast was good. It has a nice little swimming pool, sauna and gym on the top floor.

    It is old and need renovations. The noise in the mornings is unbearable, the cleaning staff make a lot of noise banging doors and hitting furniture and walls. It is too pricey for the condition of the hotel. Nobody told us about the sauna and pool on the top floor so we did not use it.
