I often looked at this then closed hotel when staying at the now former InterContinental next door.
I was excited when this hotel reopened last year under the Melia brand but couldn't make it before they had already dropped their affiliation (and I can see why).
The hotel is not fully operational based on a walk on the 30th floor. Hopefully they finish before closing the hotel again.
I booked a superior suite that was ok. Only one trashbin for the entire space?
The AC was really weird. It is like they have a standalone unit for each room and not a central one.
The hotel phones in the suite were cheapest possible crap.
The internet didn't work most of the time and had to tether on the cellphone network to get work done. I guess that the hotel is still in the 1990's.
The view of the beach was nice, however.
The front desk is an utter mess and took half an hour to check in.
The breakfast restaurant is like a nursery. They should put some acustic panels on the wall.
The location next to the biggest favela in Rio likely worries some. More
