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.

Good: A nice enough hotel : good location on the copacabana beach, nice lobby & bar (excellent caipirinha), good service from reception staff... Not so good : Room is little small, and zero view. 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

Our room was not ready at check in, which seems customary for Rio, but we were upgraded from a basic sea view room, to one with a balcony overlooking Copacabana Beach. We could not believe we could hear the sea from 11 floors up, we even slept with the patio doors open. One of the porters came around with complimentary... More

My husband and I stayed here in October 2014. We originally just had a normal room but we got upgraded to a suite with a balcony overlooking Copacabana. Beautiful view and its private. The rooms were clean every day and the bathroom was very nice. Breakfast was very good every morning. We booked a samba show through the hotel and... More

We were very happy to spend 3 nights at the Olinda and were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a top-floor suite facing Copacabana. The rooms are relatively basic and showing some age, but very clean, quiet and well serviced. Breakfast was good but not outstanding (e.g. a toaster would be useful!). Denise on the reception is a star! All... More

We spent three nights in this hotel. Although old (as they all appear to be along Copacabana Beach) the service makes up for it. Breakfast had such a variety. Views delightful. Room quite large. Have to keep windows closed for road noise. Looking out on all the action on the floodlit beach at night was good. Great location for an... More
