View from Rio 180 was great. Staffs/owner at this hotel were nice and very helpful. We stayed in Room "Ipanema" that were spacious and stylized. At night, the neighborhood was very quite. If everything in the room is working and well-maintained, it is nearly a 5-star room. For people who have sleeping problems, this is a better place than any hotel in copacabana and ipanema area. Cleanliness and maintainance are the main issues that should be considered when booking a room. Our bed sheet was not clean and did have some hair on it. Several things in the room were broken. Not sure if they have daily room service because our room was not cleaned during the two-night stay. This "hotel" indeed needs to be managed better. It has been designed to be luxury but was more like a bed and breakfast inn now. We enjoyed our stay only because we had minimum expectations (view and spacious/stylized room) and because the staffs were super nice to us. If you excepted more, this won't be a good choice for you.
The room was clean and beautiful with attractive decor and an amazing hot tub inside the room! The pool was right outside the room and secluded and quiet. The views were stunning - panoramic sights of the entire city. The breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit, juices, breads, cheeses and meats. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and attentive. A short walk to the beautiful Santa Teresa and a short taxi trip into the main city. Beautiful! Everything was great!
Everything was perfect. The staff does not ask you if everything is ok they ask is it perfect and it was. The view is unmatched and rooms are like no other hotel,all individually designed each with a different feel. The food was wonderful and the staff is top notch and did everything to our liking during our stay. The place is absolutly stunning from the outside especially at night.
Homely and personal in very designer chic surroundings. Views were stunning. Staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We did not have a daily maid service though this was not important for a 2 night stay. Situated away from the centre of Santa Theresa so either a very long walk to get anywhere or a taxi are essential. The panorama more than makes up for this though.
I have to say that my stay at 180 Degrees Suites and Cuisine was outstanding. Christophe (the owner) and Patricia (general manager) were both outstandingly attentive, kind, professional, and responsive. The only thing I didn't like was that I had to leave so soon! I intend to recommend Christophe's lovely set of suites to any and all friends traveling to Rio. Skip Copacabana/Ipanema, this is the place to stay. The only slight caveat I'd mention is the taxi service. By staying here, you need to be aware that it can take 20 - 30 minutes to get a taxi to come pick you up, although it did take 10-15 minutes on one or two occasions as well.
Everything! The room was awesome, the view was amazing, the food was so so good! Best of all, the staff were lovely - the nicest staff in any hotel in any country I've been in. They did everything they could to help me, which is even more impressive as I don't speak Portuguese and they still went out of their way to make sure everything was good. No - everything was perfect, I wish every hotel was like this!
the vew was very good
The staff were very friendly and the hotel gave amazing views of Rio. The rooms are very luxurious and it was very relaxing. We only stayed for a night, but if you were to stay for a long period of time you are a taxi distance away from the rest of Rio's tourist activities and cafe's/beaches which could work out costly over a long period.
I cannot say enough about how wonderfull our stay was at this hotel. It is so amazing! The view is the best and the rooms WOW! We were so well taken care of by Ben. I will tell everyone they must come and visit! Thanks so much for making our visit so great!!! It was great can't really find something that we did not like.
Excellent situation for those who wish to escape the noise and hassle of the beaches - most appreciated warm welcome by the owner - this is not a hotel, but feels like a friend's guest house with all modern comfort none
