The hotel has six different room categories. We don't usually recommend the Standard rooms, which are particularly small and inward facing, but the rest are all spacious and modern, offering stylish decoration and and a host of amenities such as Wi-Fi access and TVs. The Superior rooms are a great entry level room, offering a view over the city but with glimpses of the beach. If you would prefer to enjoy full views of Copacabana, room categories above Superior (Superior Executive, Deluxe, Executive Suite and Master Suite) have wonderful ocean views, along with more living space.
Located at one end of Copacabana beach, you are right in the heart of Rio, surrounded by the bustle of the numerous restaurants and cafes.
