I stayed here for a long 13 nights whilst on business and the hotel was just fantastic. The pools are superb (especially the rooftop one overlooking the Copacabana), the buffet breakfast is delicious and the general manner and helpfulness of the staff is first rate. I had a beautiful (standard) room that was spacious and comfy and the hotel is... More

This hotel is a must. The location is right on Copacabana beach front. The room was great with a view of the beach. Breakfast was the best so much choice. The staff were friendly & helpful. The downside was the restaurant for evening meals there was a choice of Italian which we were going to go in but a fellow... More

This was our second stay in Rio during our two week holiday...the first was at the Copacabana palace but as they had no room we opted for this hotel because of the reviews. We had a club room and so a separate VIP check in with champagne offered and a room on a high floor..34 th with views of the... More

Fabulous two weeks in the tallest of all hotels in Copa. Great views, great, modern rooms, great breakfast buffet, friendly service. The lobby can get hectic and the Internet provider is new and they are working out the bugs at a very high priority. Well run property. Two pools, three bars, health club, beauty salon gym, jacuzzis, multiple restaurants and... More

My problems with the Windsor started way before I arrived. Communicating with the reservation staff prior to arrival was a challenge in itself. Every email took days to get a response (most of the time I only got a reply once I chased). The responses always came in from different people and never really answered the questions you had originally... More

I just returned from spending 6 nights at this hotel. Firstly, the hotel is perfectly situated on Copacabana beach. I booked a club level room and arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport. From the very beginning the staff were just on point. I arrived at the hotel around 1030, and walked to the Club check... More

Stayed here for a week and a half on business. Like many point out, it has prime real estate on the edge of Copacabana Beach - to me, it felt a bit too much like the Times Square of Rio and next time I'd prefer to be in Ipanema or Leblon. The hotel itself was reasonably nice: comfortable beds and... More

Simply beautiful. The hotel is centrally located on Copacabana beach and offers SPECTACULAR views. Lots of good restaurants around. Very very clean. Service is impeccable; the concierge, bellhops, etc were always smiling. Just as an example of how good the service is: they gave away my room to another guest and immediately upgraded me to what was the nicest room... More

I spent a week during a convention at the hotel. The staff is friendly and try to help. We got a beautiful corner room with a view over the whole Copacabana and the Sugar Loaf mountain. Absolutely stunning (2806). Breakfast was very nice with a lot of choice. If I had been there for vacation...then my rating would have been... More

"Back in the zero's" - when this was still Le Meridien already one of my favorites in Rio. The location is perfect, given direct access to Copacobana as well as reasonable route to city centre and domestic airport. International airport is a problem, but that goes for every hotel in this city. After the refurbishment by Windsor, the hotel, rooms... More
