    The hotel was a last minute booking due to change of plans so hadnt had much time to research before hand. However it worked out fine. Close to both beachfront (couple of blocks) and the Rio sol shopping mall made it a perfect location for our needs. Small stores right outside, hsbc bank for cash machines and plenty of juice bars ect. Rio hotels are expensive but this one did at least live up to its prices! Breakfast was good different choices ect.

    great location, fabulous breakfast, amazing roof top with great pool and a view of the ocean!!

    The room was sparse but clean, no International satalite tv, so all in Portuguese!! Powerful extra hot shower, definatley the best part of the room - Resteraunt wasn't great as all it offered during my stay was evening buffet, but the breakfast buffet was excellent and definatley value for money. 10 minute walk down Princessa Isabella to the beach or a 10 minute walk to the Shopping mall under the tunnel. Would definately stay there again - Rooftop pool was excellent.

    Hotel is in very good location.

    I didn't like my room, smallest room in the hotel on first floor. You can hear noise of flushing toilets, complained to the manager. Very ignorant, did nothing to change my room, hotel staff don't speak English.

    I liked the swimming pool on the top floor and the breakfast was ok.

    Climatization too cold, even after lots of requests none of them turned up the temperature. Room service was not efficient, hygiene itens were missing everyday, they have trouble to replace them. The wireless internet in my room wasn´t working properly, I was obligated to go down and use my laptop in the lobby of the hotel.

    The staff were helpful. The desk staf were excellentMy son was ill and we had to return home to another part of Brazil, and the man on r.eception who spoke fantastic english spoke to my drs for me to make an appointment. the hotel did not charge us for our last night (although the did try). The pool was outstanding. It was easy to book a day trip whhich we would reccommend as being good value for money, although they would only accept cash and as I would not walk around Copacabana with R$630 they accepted a cheque. Car parking was available at the time we stayed. Plent yof hot towels were available next to the pool.

    The rugs in the rooms were really dirty. The electic light controller gave me an electric shock. i would not recommend the room service, which was barely edible. Someone reported on the website the the breakfast was really great - it was nothing more thank OK at the time we stayed. We thought there was no soap in the dispensers in the bath room shower and sink. We showed the cleaner who demonstrated to us that the dispensers were broken, nothing was done to fix them, this is the only time ever I have not packed soap. For the price we ended up paying for the hotel we could have booked an better quality hotel in Ipenima, which was our preferred option. There was no information in the rooms about using the safe so I had to ask at reception about it. There was little info in the hotel rooms about the hotel nd its facilities. Internet was free but \i had to ask for help to access the system.

    The staff were friendly and helpful and the service was all we expected.

    The lack of tourist information about services available within Rio and the sights that we should see.

    The staff was very nice and they gave us towels and umbrella for the beach, which was very useful for me and my wife. The hotel is good located and 4 or 5 steets from the metro station

    The best thing about this hotel was the staff. They were all extremely friendly and helpful. The included buffet breakfast was excellent.

    The only real down fall to our stay here was the quality of the beds in the room. They were uncomfortable to say the least and would prevent me from staying here again. If they improve the quality of the beds I would recommend and stay at this hotel again.

    We had a mini suite which was spacious. The bathroom was extremely large with a spa bath.

    There was a light in the bathroom over the spa bath which we could not switch off.

    The hotel was well situated for the beach and the sights of Rio.Breakfast was good, and the swimming pool/ area was pleasant.Staff were friendly and helpful.

    The confusion concerning the car park, the high price paid should automatically include car parking. I thought the bedroom furniture v.poor quality/old fashioned.Expensive for what it was.

    incopetent personel, ugly rooms

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff were very good (thanks Silvana), the rooftop pool was great, our room was large and comfortable with a good view. Breakfast was included and was absolutely fabulous (lots and varied). The location was quite close to the beach (Copa). Boardwalk, and walking in Rio.

    The elevators acted odd from time-to-time; this is only an observation- it was only mildly annoying...overall the Merlin was everything we expected. Howe ver, as tourists we are very identifiable, therefore, men/women do not wear jewelry [ie:no neck chains, bracelets or earrings]...not even costume bling-bling. Some people will think to 'deprive' you of it...I Speak from an unfortunate experience !!!

    the rooftop pool and bar were wonderful. The view is fantastic.
