This hotel has an excellent location - 2 mins walk from flamengo beach, 5 mins from metro. however i twice had cockroaches in my room. also i stayed in an "economy" room which was the size of a shoe box, the bed was single and very small - my feet were over the end, and the towels were often not replaced - i had to ring room service twice for fresh towels. for the price its not worth it. there are far better in this price range at copacabana.
