The hotel is massive which has it's downsides like you might need to wait a bit for the lift, or the wifi might go a bit slow. But the hotel is in a great location on the beach and near the Havaiana shop. Reception staff were friendly and let us check in really early. Rooms are big (carpets though which... More

I really like this hotel in Copacabana (very close to the corner with Ipanema). Its key strenghts are: the wonderful front ocean view from the room; the great panoramic view from the roof pool/terrace on the 30th floor; the beach service just in front of the hotel. Improving areas are: wifi free only in the lobby, otherwise 10€/day; price is... More

We were travelling with a small tour group and were given room 1502. The room air con was not working properly with waves of stale cooking smells permeating the room. I complained and was told that there were no vacancies and that my tour operator in Australia had only booked the standard room. They said I had to stay in... More

If you think your hotel on Copacabana will be like one in Cancun, think again. Rio is a huge city, and like most huge cities, the hotels are rarely good value for money. If you want luxury, stay at the Fasano and pay $600 a night. If you need a cheap, centrally located place to stay a couple nights, the... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was fine and we had no problems with services. The location right on the beach at Copacabana was great and our room on the 19th floor had a beautiful view of Copacabana beach. I would have liked to have free Internet access in the room, it was available but at... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were not particularly impressed. However the prices are low by Rio standards. The hotel was too large and impersonal for our tastes. The dining room at breakfast was like a zoo -packed with what looked like package tourists. The best think about this hotel were the concierges - Daniel Dimottros and another gentleman... More

I enjoyed my stay at Rio Othon Palace . The staff is very accommodating and kind. The main staff at the front desk also speak English (which was a lifesaver for someone who speaks little-to-no Portuguese). They service breakfast from 6-10a, which great and healthy choices. They currently charge about $10USD/night for wi-fi, but the connection is really good so... More

If you don't mind the crowded reception, long queues for check-in and check-out, impersonal treatment at this huge more than a hundred room block in the middle of Copacabana beach, then... this might be a Hotel for you. These are mostly the negative points. Other than that, it's the typical mass tourist hotel, food is good, close to the beach.
