Hotel staff very professional, courteous, and helpful. Breakfast buffet was most enjoyable. It is just two blocks away from Copacabana, 5min walking from the metro station. The street is busy, and thus safe.It is not very new, although everything is clean. Breakfast is medium. you were not aable to have anyone in your room and for the price i pay if my friend wants to cometo my roo they should be able to not to sleep or stay the night..... just come up to the room.
