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.
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.
