Good hotel in Prime location.

Warwickshire

The hotel room provided a splendid view of Cococabana beach and the hotel location excellent although the main road was not easy to cross. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and obliging. The breakfast and dining facilities were very good.

Disappointing service - unfriendly

Hexham, United Kingdom

We have just visited some great places in South America.The one exception which in our view did not measure up to the others was Porto Bay Rio Internacional in Rio de Janeiro. There we were greeted with a scaffolded building - at low level over the entrance and at high level on a flank wall - complete with builder’s skips. The day time noise from builders’ drills was bad. When we arrived and were taken to our room I immediately noticed a hole drilled into the safe. I tested it with the porter and it would not work. A maintenance man was summoned and after demonstrating the problem to him he disappeared. I queried this later with reception who and said that if the safe wasn't working we would require a change of room. The response was to ask me if I had checked the room again - no apology or service form their point of view. Two hours later we waited while the safe was replaced with a new one. It shouldn't have been my job to inspect and report this. Clearly there had been a problem with the old safe -which should have been rectified before our arrival. Other problems – Extremely slow internet – less than 1 Mb per sec. Only 2 lifts for 20 floors – a problem at breakfast on floor 5 or when one lift is out of action. Late make up of our room one day – returning at 4 pm, the room had not been serviced so we had to go out for an hour. Small point but the washbasin stopper did not work. Coffee (and tea) at breakfast was poor – this is Brazil after all!!
