3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was there for just one night. It must not be that easy to manage such a huge facility nonetheless all went smooth from check in to check out. Service has been fast and efficient. Some queuing for breakfast but not that relevant. Reasonable quality/price wise.

Rio Othon Palace is a large multi-story hotel located directly across the street from the famed Copacabana beach. I had a marvelous view of the beach and the passing parade of sightseers and beach-goers from my room on the 12th floor. The room was more than adequate though not luxurious by any means. That said, I spent very little time... More

Good location, in Copacaba beach, closer to Ipanema (southern end), which allows to walk to many places and easy access to restaurants, shopping, attractions. For some reason, check-in took too much time, but service was OK and I was offered an 'upgrade', which I believe has to do with the sight, because the room was not fine. BEWARE: Guest rooms... More

Hotel far too large with 570+rooms and lifts could not cope. Breakfast utter chaos with lifts full/not working. Took 22 mins to reach queue at diningroom. Lack of basic plates/glasses & food not replaced when containers empty. Service bad .Filthy bedcover was replaced, as were toiletries, but had to request. Only 1 small restaurant for dinner so ate out in... More

It is extrmely easy to find the hotel for a first timer in Rio. You get the bus (2018) from the airport to Copacabana beach (5th stop) and the building is so high that you wont miss it! The hotel location is great as it is on Copacabana beach and minutes walking from Ipanema, so you have both options at... More

The hotel has an excellent location on Copacabana beach and it has an amazing view from the upper floors. The staff was friendly and helpful, but all were not very good in English. The breakfast buffet was nice. Free extra towels for use at pool or beach. Room and bathroom was large and comfortable, perhaps a little old and worn... More

There were just a few minor things that kept Rio Othon from an A+ rating. Towels were not overabundant and not luxurious. One attendant at beach chairs/umbrella stands was not helpful in locationing a chair/umbrella when they had none at the stand and plenty of empties on the beach. Rooms are plenty comfortable yet somewhat dated; and all lightbulbs worked.... More

The location of this hotel couldn't be more perfect. It is literally less than 100 feet from the beach. Concierge was extremely helpful and spoke excellent English. Room was lovely with great Air Conditioning which is VERY important when the outside temp is 100+. Breakfast was incredible with many, many choices and wonderful fresh fruit. It is a bit pricey...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a few days and we enjoyed every second of our stay. We stayed in a spacious room/top floor. The room was great, a bit old tho.

Nice hotel. Very well located to enjoy Copacabana Beach and evening shopping. Our room had no view, but we only slept there so it didn't matter. Nice lobby with free wifi there (only). The concierge told us about a bike shop where we could rent bikes. Excellent experience there with the bikes.
