I stayed a week. Let's start with the three main cons. 1. The hotel has been built in 1949, and it shows inside. Has it been refurbished? Perhaps once, a while ago. Hence, the rooms are old ... and the windows do not isolate you from noise or external air. The walls tend to be thin, and you can hear... More

We have just recently stayed at the Olinda Rio hotel in Rio de Janeiro for the second time. We had a great time, hotel was totally adequate. Will go there again if we go to Rio. Hotel gave all info needed to see the city's main tourist attractions and arranged for A tour guide to fetch us. We had a... More

I stayed here for 1 week. The place is a little old but very clean. Good breakfast. The staff is very friendly, helpful and speak English (which is not a given in Rio). They allowed me to check out a little later. The place is right next to the beach, close to shops and things in Copacabana. Also walking distance... More

Every employee we met at this hotel went out of their way to be helpful and to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. The friendliest hotel staff I have ever met! Room was a good size and very clean. Great location too.

We chose this hotel as it was recommended by a friend and for the good location. It sits nicely in the middle of Copacabana Beach near a lot of restaurants and easy access to transportation. The view from our room was fantastic if not a bit narrow because of the shape of the hotel. I found the room to be... More

Great location in the middle of Copacabana Beach, 30 minutes walking to either end and 45 minutes walk to Ipanema Beach. We had a great view of the beach from our balcony (upcharge), the wifi worked, and breakfast was good! But... the bed was firm, if you like that then good. We asked if they could put a pad on...

The Olinda Rio is perfectly located close to Copacabana beach and some lovely bars and restaurants. The rooms are big if not a bit dated. Wifi is frustratingly slow. Not much good if you want to do anything more involved than the most basic browsing. We stayed for 5 nights. On weekdays the hotel was undergoing renovation/construction work from approx... More

We stayed in May for 3 nights. Opposite cocapabana beach and towels can be borrowed to allow a swim. They also have a fixed price car to take you to the international airport at 92 U.S. dollars. We paid about £38 per night through hotels.com for room 1001 on the 10th floor with a sea view to die for. As... More

Stayed three nights in a luxury double room with sea view from the third floor. The hotel is centrally located across the road from the Copacabana Beach and within close walking distance of dozens of restaurants, bars and the metro. Check in was a smooth process with the english speaking receptionist providing a summary of the facilities and a map... More
