When it is warm outside the rooms can get uncomfortably warm especially if sunlight is coming in the window. The A/C will only activate by putting your "room key" card into a receptacle right by the door. So when you leave and take your room key all the electrical shuts off including your A/C. l would suggest that if there are two of you and you plan to come back to the room at the same time you leave one room key in the receptacle. That way the room will be cool when you get back. (I know, that is not "green"). My roommate and I had comfortable beds. Room size was OK. Not cramped but neither was it spacious. Oh yes, for the ladies: no hair dryers in the rooms. There is a pool, sauna and a small fitness center on the roof top. You must walk up one final stairwell after getting off of the elevator to get there. Nice view. At night you can see the illuminated Corcovado from there. I thought the breakfast buffet was great. Lots of choices. Fruits, choice of egg preparations, breads, cheeses, yogurt, meats, juices and, of course, coffee.
Walk out of the hotel entrance to the left and two blocks away you arrive at the Copacabana beach. Or go to the right and there are plenty of little markets a short distance away if you want a snack. Also lots of little shops. In addition, the Subway (6 blocks away) is in that direction. Take it to get to Ipanema beach. Prices on things get a lot cheaper as you go to the right, away from the beach. Get current exchange rate at the front desk for US $ without a fee.
