Super place if you’re looking to stay in Lapa
Very quiet hotel once you leave the hectic street scene unless rowdy neighbors. We were lucky, of the 7 days there, we had noisy neighbors just once. The breakfast was very good, staff helpful and the pool area was lovely even if we didn’t use it.

Close to a lot of restaurants and bars in Lapa, easy access to them. Area around is not pleasant but you can get used to it. Hotel was full and no parking spots available. Room spacious and comfortable bed, nice shower.

Great hotel in the Lapa/Santa Teresa area! Would definitely recommend. Reception (Eliel in particular was amazing) was great, friendly and prompt service and was accommodating when we checked in early and asked for late check out. The hotel room had everything we needed and was clean. The shower doors were a little noisy but not the end of the world. Beds and pillows were comfy for us. We didn’t get to use the pool but it looked beautiful and well kept. Breakfast buffet included was a great spread too, had an omlette station, hot foods, cereal, fruit, etc. Overall we were happy with our stay here!

2/10 Poor

The hotel was ok; but what I didn’t like was that the next day we got to the hotel, we went on a tour for the whole day, so when the person in charge of cleaning my room got inside that person stole money from us. The money was inside of a small bag inside my luggage under all my clothes. We put all the money there before going on a tour and when we came back we were missing 4,000 US dollars. The room has two keys, one for us and the other one for the person in charge to fix the bed, nobody else could go inside but us and the hotel staff. Also the doors and windows were perfectly lock and no sings of forcing yo get inside the room That situation ruined my experience at the hotel and at the country, I did not spect to be robbed at my hotel room by a staff member. That is a very disrespectful act against tourists, at the end people from outside going to visit your country is a plus for people living in those country. I can understand the things that happens on a daily basis outside on the street, that could happen anywhere; but being robbed in your own hotel room is very disappointing. I hope that the hotel takes into account everything I did to prove to them that I was telling them the true and they do something about this staff member because he is not good for the hotel. That person stole 4,000 dollars from my luggage and I’m sure is used to do it by the way I found the money. The money was divided into 1000’s and he took half of every 1000, so I wouldn’t not notice
