This hotel is right on the Copacabana beach. The hotel serves a buffet breakfast which was lovely. We had a suite on the 12th floor with an amazing view. Night time is especially lovely. The beds were comfortable.The rooms are definitely dated as is the hotel itself although we did find the staff accommodating. If you are looking for luxury,... More

This hotel is quite small but has a great position on Copacabana Beach. First impression of the room was OK - a reasonable size, not enough clothes hangers and a bathroom that is a bit of a let-down. The hotel is very clean, breakfast is a comprehensive buffet and dinners that we had were good, but few people eat in... More

Service is pretty bad and reception staff is not helpful. The bathrooms do not even has tissue paper box. Breakfast that was included in the room... More

I came here for the World Cup in June and the hotel was right on Copacabana Beach where much of the action was. The room was understandably pricey given the time of my trip but the complimentary breakfast was suprisingly good food which to me was unexpected when it is free to guests from past experiences. Staff was very helpful... More

If you are interested in old architecture, this classic style accommodation could be an option. Some facilities are not well maintained though, basic construction are well preserved since its open of 1949. (20 years newer than Copacabana Palace) Beach-side rooms have nice view of Copacabana, although inland rooms have nothing. Breakfast is served almost perfect, variety of selection of foods,... More

We enjoyed our stay with the Olinda Rio and would highly recommend it to others for a few reasons. 1. The staff. The front desk people were INCREDIBLE. Remembering us in a huge hotel, helping with our millions of questions, etc. And, the housekeeping staff was amazing. We accidentally left our safe wide open one day and not a thing... More

We had paid for a standard double which i hoped would come with some sort of view, even of the building or street opposite. Instead we had a room that had a shutter on the outside which allowed minimal light and zero ventilation. The breakfast was pretty good, but the hotel was dated.

Ugly: too much work going on immediately outside room - the cabling works were ongoing, drilling and hacking walls, and all covered up at night with... More

The hotel is on a prime location on Copacabana Beach and thus can ask premium rates. However slightly dated,we had a pleasant stay without issues, be it that WiFi does not reach all rooms. Room and bathroom are OK, Breakfast is good, but the coffee is awful given that we were in Brazil. Without exception all staff were friendly and... More
