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 booked this hotel from an online discount site, and we pretty much got what we paid for. The first room we got had a huge window, and as soon as we opened it, we stead blankly at a brick wall. the a/c didn't work so we got put higher up but the view from there was pretty terrible too,... More

Pros: - Good location - Quick check-in - Pretty good breakfast Cons: - Horrible horrible internet connection (I had to call 3 times the front desk to repair the issue but no luck. Then I had to get my PC downstairs to the receptionist... 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

We stayed here for a week during the World Cup. It's a great location as its slap bang on the beach. The breakfast was average at best and not a lot to choose from. The rooms were nice but we had no veiw from our room window. One good things was the wifi worked perfect from the room.

We staid at the hotel for 6 nights during World Cup 2014. The rooms was great and really clean, the service at front desk was super good. The location is at the Copacabana beach, and nearly the subway. But the best, and I still missing is the breakfast, best start in the morning you ever get, 5 stars!
