« Very Good! »

We went to Rio for celebratting my sister's birthday. Is was amazing experience! The location of the hotel is excelent! Pretty close to Ipanema and Copacabana's beathes, Garota de Ipanema's Park and Arpoador are just a few steps distant. It is possible to go walking to General Osorio station and to Rodrigo de Freitas Lake. The breakfast is wonderful, with diferent kind of fruits, juices, cheeses and brads. The staff is friendly. Our room was very confortable and clean. I just missed protective screens on the windows since we were traveling with small kids. We surely recommend this hotel.

« friendly »

The hotel is well located and the breakfast is really good. staff is gentle en helpful. The rooms need some rennovation,andr the air conditioning was not working well,but I was told they have already started the remodelling. Also, the welcome drink was just for the le accor member and so I didn't have it for I think it's very unfair if the drink is not offerd to the roommate. It's embarassing to share the room with a friend and only you get a drink...

« A nice hotel in a very good location »

This hotel is ideally located in between Copacabana and Ipanema, so it is very easy to go to the beach (or restaurants, or bars, etc.) in both of the above. It has very friendly and welcoming staff and comfortable rooms, with a nice kitchen corner, a living room, a bathroom + shower, and bedroom. It also has a swimming pool (strangely thin and long) and a sauna. I would recommend it because of its position mainly, but in general I had a nice stay overall (I stayed for 6 days).

« Poor in Arpoador »

The first room I was given had no less than 6 major issues. The sliding glass door did not CLOSE let alone secure, the AC did not work, the safe did not work, the TV's did not work. The lights did not work and bulbs were missing. They advertise as having kitchenettes but the stove did not work and the only equipment were two plates, two forks and two knives. Nothing to cook with! I was UPSET. They moved me to a newly renovated "proto-type" room. That they said they had checked. Here there was NO stove or cooking, the room had been painted and refinished but the AC could not be controlled. No mater what setting it produced the same temp, VERY COLD. Not a single written instruction on how one might use the AC remote. The safe did not work in this room either. They said that they had checked it but would do so again. They didn't, the safe NEVER worked. the faucet on the bathroom sink was falling off and the spray bidet leaked all over the bathroom floor. so i shut it off, the cleaning staff turned it back on each day so i came back to a wet bathroom floor each day. I prepaid for the full 7 day week which was a supposed 40% discount and I still did NOT get my money's worth. Well never again and never at a Mercure again. I got better value at a Motel 6 at least there they leave the light on for you!

« A good hotel for those who love the beach »

Mercure Arpoador is a very good hotel for those who want to visit Rio and stay close to the beach (Arpoador, Ipanema, Leblon). However, the cheapest rooms are too close to the street, so noise is an issue, as isolation is inefficient. And the bathrooms could be better. They are a bit small, the washbasin is tiny, and the toilet paper is of poor quality.

« Good location. Needs some SERIOUS renovations. »

A reasonably priced hotel at a GREAT location. Clean, comfortable, good service... That's all that can be said. SMALL breakfast room with a rather nice inner court terrace. I would say the ENTIRE hotel needs to go through renovations.

Tatiane R, Gerente at Mercure Rio de Janeiro Arpoador Hotel, responded to this review

« Rio - pleasure visit for 5 »

This hotel is in an excellent location, has beautiful rooms, and outstanding service. We booked two rooms (3 people, 2 people, all family members), and our rooms had a great set-up of kitchen area, desk/living area, bathroom, and bedroom. The furnishings were nice, the amenities were great, and the composition and layout of the rooms were wonderful. We enjoyed being close to the Copacabana beach and to nearby restaurants and markets. If we return to Rio, this hotel is most definitely on our list. My husband is Brazilian (and I am an American), and this hotel satisfied both of us well.

« Great weekend with friends »

After searching many hotels and locations in Rio seeking for the right cost/benefit location and comfort, Mercuri Arpoador shown to be the right choice. Right in the middle between Copacabana and Ipanema you can enjoy beach, restaurants and night life in a walking distance from the hotel. Rooms are comfortable and they are rennovating to make the experience even better.

« Worthwhile Staying »

Aparthotel is located very conveniently between Copacabana and Ipanema. Staff is very helpful. Replacement of beverages and making up room could be a bit faster or, in any case, communication with front desk will help.

« Could be improved »

We have already stayed at this hotel some time ago, matter of fact in the same room we were allocated this time, and to our surprise no improvements were made in small maintenance items, for instance, the bathroom door has no key and features a hole where the key should fit, some drawers were loose, and thge air conditioning unit blows cold air right on top of the sofa of the sitting room. All these were noted in our previous stay but nothing has been done yet. On the other hand, very helpful staff, excellent location, free garage parking and a nice breakfast make up for these problems.

« Moderate hotel »

Unfortunately the hotel go for the worse and every time I stay there I think is worse than the previous one. Although I am a holder of the platinum card, of Le club accorhotels, in the reception not offered me a room upgrade, neither a welcome drink. The room seemed very old, the aircondition in the living room didn't work. The next day, I left early in the morning and returned back in the room late night. I found the room service tray, which I had used the night before with leftovers be on the coffee table. They forgot to replace the personal amenities in the bathroom. For me personally, when I spend great time of my life at hotels, the stay was disappointing.

« 50th Bday in Rio »

The hotel is very well located for Ipanema and Copa beaches. Clean, efficient, well run, lovely staff, apartment type rooms are well sized with small kitchen, sitting room and ample bedroom with balcony. Breakfast is very good. The pool is quite small and 1st floor not roof, but you have two lovely beaches witin 2 mins walk! Very good value. If you want something a bit more upmarket try the Sofitel just round the corner (same chain).
