I loved everything about this hotel and was sad to leave it! The included breakfast was delicious, the bed was comfortable, the room was cute, the rooftop view, the location was amazing, and best of all was the staff - from the servers in the restaurant to the staff at the front desk. Everyone was so attentive and friendly!

Stayed 7 nights at this hotel for a emergency trip to Rio. Booked a city view room.
Hotel is great. Right on the Arpoador beach, steps from the sand, great restaurant (ARP) w awesome drinks and entrees.
The staff of both front desk, restaurant and throughout the hotel were attentive, friendly and always willing to help in any way they can.
Pool on rooftop is small but the lounging area is so relaxing. And the view is 5 stars.
Bikes are available for free for 2h.
Room was clean and bed was comfortable.
Amenities were from Phoebo a Brazilian cosmetic company.
It is basically a short Uber drive or walk to several restaurants.
The only thing it needs improvement is the cable quality w more variety of channels and the Wi-Fi which disconnects quite often and it is hard to work remotely like that.
Will definitely return.

It’s our 3rd time here and every time is special. Pick a front view room. Really worth the investment.
Sunday Brunch menu is complete for all types of public. Highly recommend the grilled octopus and grilled shrimps. Starters nothing special.. just ok.
The service overall is high standard with friendly staff and I felt safe even in a pandemic.
Hope to be back soon!

Very helpful staff, most speak good English. Helped schedule covid test at hotel and some random printing/scanning for work. Wifi is good up on roof for remote workers. Breakfast included is very good. Good security around as well for the tables by the beach.
