    Good location between 2 famous beaches.

    This hotel is small, cramped, and old. I could not even sit on toilet correctly because of the way it was built. I booked a double room and I got a room with 2 beds. I booked this hotel thinking I was getting a double room and is the only reason why I picked this hotel. Booked.net should clarify the actual amount of room with the actual amount of beds.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very well located for Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, the market, the shops and a range of restaurants. Having the taxi rank just outside is also very helpful. Breakfast on the roof terrace was a hgighlight for me. Fairly sensible pricing and helpful staff.

    Very good

    Perfect location!!! Staff was friendly. The hotel is old but my room was perfectly adequate and it had been cleaned well. There was a new floor and a big flat tv. I was on the 6th floor and the WIFI was excellent and very fast. The mattress of the bed was quite hard, for me this was great because it's better for my back but some people might not like it. The air conditioning was adequate.

    Again, the hotel is old and it shows in some places. However for me the positive qualities of the hotel compensate for this.

    The breakfast is ok which is the only comfort when I was there

    Dirty and with terrible smell in someplace of hotel. All the hotel is obsolete and obscure, the room is noisy which is near the street. and more, dogs barking all the night when I lived there.

    Location is very convenient. Hotel Crystal Palace is location one street inland from the intersection of Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.

    Internet does not work in room and was very slow in the lobby.

    Location is very good, situated between Copacabana and ipanema beaches. The beach is just one block away

    Access to WiFi was sporadic, which for me was a pain as I was in Rio for business

    Fabulous

    The jacuzzi, the location, the breakfast are very good points. Rooms are confortable as well.

    The reception is not all the time good because we had a bad experience with a guy called Melo.

    Nice breakfast buffet on roof terrace. Gutes Fruhstucksbuffet auf dem Dach.

    small and dirty rooms. room was very neglected. our first room smelled like pee. i had to involve Booked.net to get it changed. ore else they would not have changed the room. manager speaks no english and uses this for reason to not solve your problem. manager refers us to owner, but owner is not available on weekends. manager is afraid to get fired if he calls owner in the weekend. our 2nd room was slightly better but still neglected, curtains broken, lights not working.

    Exceptional

    I liked it because it was super friendly and very helpful. Your staff could have not been better. The Internet was good and accessible easily in the rooms most of the time and your location was great for both beaches. Breakfast was ample and adequate, hot and on time every morning. It was a perfect mix between economy, style and accessibility. Thank you for your kind help during my stay. It was very welcome.

    Good

    Located between Copacabana and Arpoador/Ipanema beaches. Great breakfast included! Wifi on every floor.

    Fabulous

    The man on the front desk was excellent and recommended / booked several tours for us which were excellent and very reasonably priced compared to costs of doing it ourselves. Breakfasts were great in the morning, lots of fruit, cereals, bread and eggs. Computers for internet access in the lobby. Excellent location for walking to both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches and towns. The hotel was a little dated, but no problems. We were watchful after some of the reviews we had read, but we would certainly stay there again.
