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

We stayed for 2 days and both days in the morning we had trouble with the water. First no hot water only cold, next morning no water at all! We stayed in a renovated room at the 23-floor. Nice and clean with amazing view at Copacobana. But they have forgotten to update the balcony and the doors from the balcony.... 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. The pool is small and the view is nice. The room décor was straight out of the 70s but the only thing missing was the shag... More

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

Stayed here during a congress week. Nothing really wrong with this hotel, but for a four star hotel I expect more. The rooms are okay. Nice beds, average shower. The staff speaks very little English. Wifi in the lobby is terrible. You can have wifi in your room, but they charge you. The hotel bar is small. The restaurant however... More

After a first catastrophic stay at Rio Othon, I accepted the apologies of the hotel staff and their invitation for a second stay, this time with guarantee of a better room.

Location is great. You have several buses to go to Corcovado and to Pão do Açucar. It's in front of Copacabana beach and most rooms have a view to it. 24hs room service which is great for when you arrive really late and tired. Internet service is good if you need to work. The look is a little outdated but... More

They say that this is the tallest hotel on Copacabana and normally a high-rise hotel puts me in mind of Benidorm tackiness, but in this case, it affords superb views over the beach and bay. The rooftop glass-walled pool terrace and restaurant give a 280-degree vantage point, from hill-side favelas to Ipanema. It's worth staying here for this alone! Our... More
