Nice breakfast with a broad enough buffet. The quality of food items was good.
The room was lacking in furniture. There were no bed side tables - nothing to place your phone and eyeglasses etc. Who can design such a fitting? The bed was spacious but the space after that was limited and it was somewhat difficult to move around. The room had windows to a neighboring building with a distance of less than 1 meter - no view at all. Ventilation was not effective, everything was rather damp.
The hotel (rooms, facilities and reception) were all nice, very modern and well decorated. Room was a decent size and the rooftop bar and pool were a nice touch (when open). Staff were friendly although not all spoke English but you can get by. Good choice of food at breakfast, be careful though as some of the hot items were actually cold and hadn’t been kept hot. Good location in terms of walking to various sites. WiFi strong and works throughout the hotel. There’s a nice scent in the hotel lobby and reception, but it doesn’t extend to the rooms.
We stayed for 2 nights and the main reason for booking this hotel was for the rooftop bar and pool for the views over Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. However, on both evenings we were there, there were weddings being held on the rooftop and so our access was limited. There were no pre warnings down in the hotel and instead we faced an awkward exchange with the bar staff up there who told us we had to leave as it was shut. We didn’t think too much of it as there’s a bar on the ground floor, however when we went downstairs, it was in complete darkness and we were told this was also closed. For the price you’re paying per night, this wasn’t good enough in my opinion. The “hot” items at breakfast were cold, both mornings we were there.
We had several big issues that I think were not acceptable: no hot water first day, the water in the sink was not going down, the same happens with the toilet on the second day. It was very disappointing.
Great breakfasts. Friendly helpful staff. Beautiful views of SugarLoaf and Christ the Redeemer from our room. Fun rooftop bar - also w great views.
Strong sewer smell in bathroom.
Friendly, welcoming staff
The hotel room isn’t baby friendly
