What a location, almost have to pinch yourself to realise where you are. Hotel is right on Copacabana Beach . There is a supermarket directly behind hotel and in evenings a small street market just across the road on " promenade", Our room was fine , on 10th floor with a very partial beach view . The only real downside... More

There must be 5 billion Othon hotels by now and they greatly vary. This one is good but not great. Business check in on the 27th floor was very helpful, because the regular front desk had a line out the door. Lobby is always very busy with lots of tourists - this is Copacabana - and even with security all... More

This is a hotel that handles a vast number of customers on a daily basis therefore don't expect the personal touch! The foyer is busier than T3 at heathrow. The hotel desperately needs a refurb and the 4 star rating is generous to say the least. The noise was unbelievable, I slept with ear plugs in for the duration of... More

Our room on the 27th floor had an incredible beach view with mountains in the backdrop in both directions. And the night view was just as impressive with all the lights along the beach road and on the hillsides. Our room was comfortable and clean and we had no problems with the water or anything else in the room. We... More

I got a reasonable deal for a room at the Othon Palace, a room with a great view of the beach, but not on a very high floor (8th) so rather closer to the road and beach noise than was ideal. There was a sliding glass door which didn't seal particularly well and the glass is not double glazed and... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days during world cup soccer. Although I paid through my nose, I must say that over all the hotel rated at Very good. It is not 5 stars though. I would say 4 star. My room was facing Copacabana beach and the views were simply stunning. There is even a small narrow balcony... More

This Hotel is excellent Location. Right by Copacabana Beach and within walking distance from Ipanema Beach. Good view from all direction. Clean rooms. I am giving it a four star as the Lobby has free wifi and not in the rooms. They need to step up and have wifi in the rooms. I have to give accolades to the staff... More

This hotel was rated 4 stars. I've been to better 3 stars hotels. The lobby has free, decent speed wifi. The hotel breakfast was nice. It's a easy walk to Ipanema Beach as well.

We stayed in the hotel from September 3rd to September 7th and my experience was about average. I was expecting an impeccable room and hotel structure, as the pictures depicted and Othon's reputation made me expect, but what I found out was a bit different from that. The room was clean, but the door that gave access to the balcony... More
