"Reveillon 2015"
We are a family of 5 with older teenage children. We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year Holiday. The Hotel was located one block from the beach. The staff was friendly, helpful. They offered information on tours and made reservations for us. The breakfast buffet was well done. Pool terrace is small but the space is well done and there is a bar and room service availability. Lobby and rooms are clean and well kept. I would recommend the hotel.

"Great location and service"
Middle of the action, block from Copacabana beach. All transport steps away. Plenty of good restaurants walking distance. Breakfast buffet style includes fruit, eggs, hams, cheeses, cakes, bread, cereals, juices coffee and various tea bags. Weber checked us in (with excellent English). He knew the local bus numbers for the Botanical Garden. Very helpful in getting us organized on a day trip. The bellhops always eager to take your bags, call a taxi, or even anticipate your need for the elevator. The service is first-class! Our room faced park, and surrounding buildings, with small view of the ocean. Phone, fridge, TV and safe. Windows opened, and in-wall A/C unit. Two beds, 1-queen, and 1-single. Power sockets take 2-pin US electric plugs, and the bathroom had one US-style 220V outlet. Couple of chairs and a table. Plenty of lights. Bathroom had phone, toilet, bidet, hairdryer and plenty of room. The shower was brilliant – hot and strong. Overall, room is a little stark, and beds are not most comfortable, but everything was clean, and cleaned daily. TV’s SAP does not work – so movies that can normally be switched to English from Portuguese are stuck in Portuguese. You do have BBC, CNN, Bloomberg and one English-language movie channel. Some channels ‘freeze’ for days. Very small pool, and a sauna on the roof (don’t bother with sauna). Deck chairs, tables and chairs to sunbath, but no view of the beach.

One of the best value hotels in Copacabana. One block from the beachfront, pleasant rooftop area, very good service. The hotel is totally wheelchair accessible although they had to move the bed so that I could get around the room ok. They did this immediately and very happily.

Good location in copacabana, near metro station, bus stops, supermarket & 2 blocks from the beach. Front desk staff not friendly, only give tourist info trying to sell their own packages. The only front desk person that was helpful was the manager himself, very nice! Chose hotel mainly bc one of the few that had 3 separate beds, I was sharing the room w relatives. Room was great, spacious, clean and modern!

"Off beach Copacabana location on busy street"
Even though, (or maybe because) I am fluent in Brazilian Portuguese (not a native speaker, though), I was treated with irony by the Front desk staff and manager, when I questioned having to change rooms during our 6 night stay (my daughter and boyfriend stayed for 4 nights in another room booked by us). The same attitude prevailed when I pleaded for at least our daughter's room NOT to be on the 2nd floor of a 13 floor premise with a view onto the air conditioning equipment. We finally got rooms on floors 4 and 5 at the end of a dark corridor, and with a nasty view onto a grimy interior court. However, it could have been worse, there are rooms with NO windows and Expedia's website did not mention this, as far as I could tell. Also, booking through Expedia, we had no choice as to what kind of beds we desired, 3 months prior to arrival. Their in-room safes still require one carry around a key. Internet access required multiple log-ins per day with acceptance of ever recurring daily rates for each device, until I overheard the front desk offering up to 4 devices per daily rate to an English speaking guest. From then on I negotiated all things in English, which helped, I got much better treatment. On a positive note, said Front desk staff speak a very decent and functional English, and in the end, we were NOT charged for the use of the internet, since many guests complained about its quality (the speed itself was quite good for Brazilian standards).

"Great stay for a family of 3"
We stayed at the Mar Palace because we needed a triple room to accommodate my family. We were pleased with the hotel's location. It was just a block from the beach and had a large selection of restaurants within walking distance. Included in the hotel rate was a free breakfast which had a wide array of fresh fruits and pastries. The room was spacious and the shower had great water pressure. The hotel had beach towels available to guests. The only downside was that they charged for wifi.

Only two blocks from the beach, the Hotel fronts a nice city park where the locals gather for conversation and games of chess and checkers. There are lots of nice sidewalk cafés in the area. The breakfast was very good. As is the case with most "fancy" hotels, they charged for internet access; however, I was somehow able to access wi-fi for free on my smart phone.

The service was excellent especially as we were able to access the room before check-in time after a long overnight flight, and to use the top (pool) floor after checkout while waiting for our transport. The room was large, clean and quiet and the food was excellent, especially the breakfast. Highly recommended.

Old window AC in the room , there was a kind of renovation without informing us either while doing the booking or while staying , all the day TOK TOK TOK TOk over our heads.

The hotel is one block from the beach, but there is no beach view. The rooms are large, but the floor is some type of linoleum rather than carpeting, and the bed was terrible. The mattress was not at all comfortable, was of poor quality and should have been replaced a long time ago. There are window air-conditioning units which are very noisy. Bathroom was granite surfaces and very nice. Staff was competent and helpful, but not particularly friendly. The included breakfast was fine.

This hotel is one block away from Copacabana beach, with great access to Bus and Subway (Metro) public transportation. The hotel lobby area and breakfast are really good. But the room condition is not good, (2 star). The bathroom door was rotten, the bed is really hard, needs more pillows and better sheets. The staff needs to smile more and a "Good morning" would help. The Staff is helpful if you approach them, but they can do better.

"Great service, clean rooms, close to the beach!"
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Mar Palace. Our rooms were extremely clean, the staff were awesome, and the hotel was cheap and 2 blocks away from the beach. There is always at least 1-2 people at the front desk that know English, and they are more than happy to help with booking tours, translating, and giving recommendations on sights around the city. The breakfast buffet was excellent-- always stocked with fresh fruit and a variety of different breads/pastries. For the price, I would definitely stay here again.

"Do not stay here if you are on a party trip!"
Do not stay at this hotel if you are booking a party trip away. The hotel does not allow overnight guests into the hotel (even if the room has been booked for 2 people) if they are not pre-registered at the time of the booking, therefore single people looking to party will find it a very lonely trip !. This is not displayed in the terms and conditions. It is an additional 'security' policy that none of the other hotels in the area seem to have.

"Disaster"
The front desk stuff were unhelpful and rude. The breakfast and the size of the room were ok, except these every thing was disaster. I asked for an iron, the answer was they don't provide this service. I need to pay someone who will iron my dress. Since I spend only for 2 nights in Rio I wanted to hire a private guide, this was a very strange request for the front desk and no one would help me or was willing to look for me. They only offered a daily bus tour . I wanted to visit the house of the famous architect - Oscar Niemeyer, I asked them to check for me the visit hours and the address , I took a special taxi to find out the Vila is close for renovation. This hotel is very low and simple , not even close to 4 star hotel.
