Extremelly expensive given the poor quality of the hotel. The hotel clearly takes advantage of its location to overprice its customers. Old hotel and poor quality of rooms and installations, bathroom and shower are comparable to a hostel standards.

This is the first time I stayed at Cristal Palace. It is a rather small Hotel, (only 24 rooms) which is convenient in terms of quietness. I'm very impress by the cleanliness of rooms, and for the service in general. I do recommend this Hotel

The best about this hotel is its location, very close to both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Quite close to subway, too. First night I spent, the shower has not hot water and staff was not very helpful with this issue. Hotel has not a bar service running after breakfast time, which can be quite uncomfortable.

In the evening my room was not quiet due to the bars in front of the Hotel. You're very close to beaches, and the bike-skate route is just in front on the hotel. Stake and surf shops at 20mt. Lovely italian gourmet food served at breakfast (burrata, salame, ricotta).

When I arrived at 11.30 pm a black man at the reception demanded me to pay in advance at least for three nights notwithstanding I showed him my booking through venere.com with reservation for 13 nights; what in fact I did paying the bill when I left on March 11 2009. The same man asked me while I was leaving the hotel to pay for a bottle of mineral water that I would have used; I gave him 5 R$ .
