Great peaceful retreat
This was our third trip to the hotel. It's a wonderful restful place and service is good by Brazil standards. We thought that the pool area had lost a little of its charm since being taken over by the Sofitel in a bid to squeeze in a few more chairs but overall it remains the best weekend retreat in Rio!

Beautiful historical hotel
A 5 star experience. The hotel building & gadens were beautiful. Everything was tastefully decorated. Restaurant & Bar decor amazing. Lobby area calm and spacious. Very refined and understated elegance. Best of all was the attentative and friendly service. It was a treat to stay here and I would highly recommend it if you’re after a boutique style quieter hotel in a charming historical neighborhood.
