Initially had an issue with our booking and the man at the reception was able to rectify the issues and ensured we had a great stay.
We stayed in the presidential suite which was incredible. This hotel is in a great location, rooftop views and a nice buffet breakfast.
Would stay again
The hotel’s location just cannot be beat- short walk to the beach, near a variety of quick eats and fine dining and access to metro. The breakfast spread was great, I felt so full every morning.
However, during my stay here I switched rooms 3 times. The first room’s bathroom flooded after a quick shower, the second room had visible mold in the bathroom and the 3rd room’s shower didn’t drain properly, which maintenance fixed after a call to reception. Reception was OK about handling the issues but didn’t seem unphased about the variety of issues we had in the room. To me, that may have been indicative of larger issues within the hotel infrastructure.
I would not stay here again if I had the option but I appreciated other staff (dining room and luggage assistants) that went above and beyond to help us make the most out of our stay in Rio.
