    Good Location

    The staff could not care less about customers. The hotel has a nice lobby but rooms are very disappointing with several disfunctions and very noisy. It is definitely not a 4 star hotel albeit it claims to be.

    Superb

    I liked the professionalism and friendly disposition of the reception staff at the front desk, the restaurant staff, and hotel room cleaner. Everyone was very kind and helpful at the front desk. They helped to organize my one day tour trip to Cocovado, Christ Redeemer, and Sugar Loaf as well as a helicopter ride to Christ Redeemer. The staff at the front desk tried several times to arrange for me to do hang gliding, but the hang glide instructor had to cancel my hang gliding experience, because the weather was not good during that time. But the staff at the front desk called the hang gliding instructor many times so that I could hang glide. Never got to do the hang gliding, but I appreciated the staff trying to help me achieve that goal. The next time I travel to Rio, I plan to stay at the Mar Palace Copacabana Hotel again. And it is just a 5 minute walk to Copacabana Beach. Again, the staff at Mar Palace hotel was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to other people thinking about traveling to Rio.

    Good

    We were 5 and we stayed in two big room: 2 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms; good bathrooms, a good TV set and cable TV. Rooms and beds are fine. It was perfect for my family, because we didn't expected to stay at the hotel and use its poor recreation area. The hotel location is very nice: near some fast foods and restaurants and near subway/bus stations. Hotels in Rio are in general very expensive and the classification is too exaggerated. This hotel is at least a very good 3-star hotel, I think its not a 4-star. I know they will improve the classification criteria in Brasil.

    Its poor recreation area and the little garage. The noisy from the upside bathroom.

    Close to the beach and friendly employees.

    Sounds from other room kept me awake every night. The AC makes a lot of noice too. If you take a shower you can hear someone down the hallway brushing his teath due to a shared ventilation shaft. Some improvement required.

    Very good

    Nice place, nothing very extravagant. Justy a nice place to crash.

    The staff was not oriented to give turist information

  • 6.2
    Good

    The room was spacious, nothing fancy but more space than what u would elsewhere in copacabana for this price

    The staff wasnt very friendly, even though they all had perfect english so it wasn't a language barrier. Also the wifi didn't work and no one seemed to be eager to help us out with that even though we paid for it separately

    Internet WiFi was not included in the price, but overall it was good value for money and close to the tube station and several buses.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Central location, close to beaches and metro station.

    Tax is not included in the price quoted on Booked.net. For four nights the tax was almost as much as the cost of staying one night in the hotel. Internet access is not included, considering the cost per night this should be free.

    Very good

    The location - just one block from Copacabana Beach, easy to hop on buses and get to places like Sugar Loaf moountain etc. The hotel was ideal for a short stay in a city.

    It was a bit bland in its decor. Also the swimming pool was tiny - a misleading photo of which made it look a lot bigger! The staff were helpful but not as friendly as in other places.

    The reception was not client friendly: the person handed a huge form to fill in (after a very long trip) without any usual indication about what needs to be filled in. The parking was also a challenge and the reception was not particularly helpful on this. It is the first time I paid to use the room safe. Small details but the welcoming was not what I had expected at level of price.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    It was in a great location with easy access to the beach and many popular areas in Rio; Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Cristo and Pao de Acucar.

    The pillows were too thin and soft.

    Fabulous

    Front desk staff were very helpful and I appreciate that they spoke English. The location is great.

    I had an inside room so no view. If I opened the curtains, I just saw the building so the room was on the dark side.

    Very good

    very good location in the middle of Copacabana. Friendly staff, very good breakfast.

    the swimming-pool is not for swimming (1m x1m dimensions)
