Let's start with the fact that Rio is a very expensive city, so while $270/night for an average quality hotel, it is actually a pretty good deal. The location is excellent, right on Copacabana beach. Our room looked out over the ocean, so had a beautiful view and could see Sugar Loaf mountain from our room. The restaurant is average... More

Fantastic location and great views from the 30th rooftop restaurant/pool/bar. Friendly staff and very helpful. Special shout out to receptionist Diana Claudio offered exception service and help. Good all rounder for Rio.

One of the tallest building facing Copacabana Beach, this hotel has a wonderful location. It is modern in many senses. There are several security guards in the lobby, however, when I phoned the desk to ask to be connected to my traveling companion, I was given her room number. Usually, for security reasons, this info is not given out. I... More

It provides the same experience you would have in a hotel that would charge 1/10 of the price. The room is small and smells cigarettes. The bed is terrible. The internet is charged, $10 extra, and it simply doesn't work at all. You'll pay $10 for 1 liter of fresh water at the mini bar. They will come up with... More

Hotel has an excellent location, rigth in front of the copacabana beach! Rooms are nice and the breakfast is very good. Would recommend. The internet was not working in the rooms, just in the lobby. They offer you transport to airport for 130 Reais, it is good just in rush hour. When no traffic yellow cab is around 70 reais.

This hotel although rated 4 stars is old and the rooms are dirty. Carpet was so dirty I had to throw away my socks because of all the foreign debri on them. The bathrooms and linen had an awkward urine smell. The only great things about the hotel are the concierge service and the breakfast buffet.

While this is a fairly big hotel on Copacabana beach, it was a great location with very helpful staff. The rooms were very nice and clean. There is a great view from the top of the hotel and it would be great if they just had a lounge there to have a cocktail. There is a restaurant but a lounge... More

A big hotel so a bit impersonal. Totally satisfactory for a couple of nights stay while sight seeing. Wifi good. Sky restaurant was great. Good views, friendly staff and excellent food really well prepared. Would recommend for this alone. Also good location near shops and opposite Copacabana Beach.

Stayed a couple of nights at the end of a S America tour. Room fine but noisy, the sliding windows do not close properly (in most rooms) and traffic noise can intrude. Some of our companions had issues with hot water but we didn't, in fact the shower almost knocked you off your feet. Breakfast was poor but we had... More

The Rio Othon Palace Hotel is an older property, and like it is usually the case in Brazil, you shouldn't have high expectations upon arrival. To give you an example, this hotel is so old, it still has 1960s wash basins (bidets) next to the toilets. I hadn't seen one of those in ages! We had booked two rooms with... More
