    Good

    Well situated on Barra beach,

    Not at all a 5 star hotel in European norms Mainly for congress therefore always crowded . We have been robed in our room and the overall cleanness is under average

    Superb

    Very nice hotel on the beach. Well suited for International business but far from the city proper. More suited for conventions

    The breakfast was good but the room service dinner I ordered was just terrible.

    Fabulous

    Just in front of nice beach-safe area

    decoration of the hotel is not modern. Photo of your site shows swimming pool in front of sea. Actually swimming pool is on top roof of the hotel and you need to cross the street to reach the beach. Hamam is dirty. Breafast buffet is not at the level of such hotel. hotel offer taxis but two times more expensive than standard taxi ! I will not go back to this hotel

    Very good

    The room was clean and comfortable. The location is close to the beach, although shops are not within walking distance and getting to them by bus or taxi can take rather long during peak times.

    The daily charge for the internet (US$ 20) is excessive, especially since it is so unreliable and since the room rates on the high side.

    Superb

    Internasjonal standard, slik vi forventer av en kjede/konferansehotell skal være.

    Jeg forsøkte først å booke direkte til hotellet, men de var særdeles dårlige i engelsk. Via Booked.net gikk det bedre:-)

    Very good

    Excelente ubicacion. Desayuno muy variado, dulce, salado, caliente. Servicio de playa.

    Un poco impersonal el trato. El front desk no tenia informacion sobre excursiones. El bar del lobby es antiguo y cierra a las 12 de la noche. El servicio de la pileta deja mucho q desear.Nunca tomen los "taxis negros" q ofrecen porque cobran el doble q uno regular (amarillo).

    Superb

    Muy buen desayuno el hotel estaba muy limpio y la gente era muy amable, hermosas playas en frente y buen barrio

    Estaba alejado del centro y sitios de interés y esto en Río es complicado los días de semana por el atascamiento vehicular

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    El hotel muy lindo, el desayuno perfecto, el personal tambien, muy predispuestos.

    que me pasen la tarjeta de credito como garantia al entrar cuando yo pague al irme en efectivo y ahora me figura en consumos pendientes afectandome mi limite en la tarjeta de credito. Que no tiene sala de Juegos.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    La ubicación, la amabilidad del personal durante el desayuno. La atención del bar.

    Las habitaciones no estaban disponibles a nuestra llegada. Las mismas no eran idénticas como se realizo en la reserva.

    Ottimo per fare vita da spiaggia.

    Lontano dall'aeroporto: 1 ora è mezza di taxi.
