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.

Typical high rise hotel with roof top pool too small, but then you have a good sized beach across the road!! Left observations with the front desk and received an e-mail reply, the main problem is the crowds in reception area logging on to the free net it really does set a bad tone to what could be a good...

Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our 2-night stay during our honeymoon. I want to preface this by saying I would recommend this hotel. The location is great and the hotel is clean. I just think you should know a few things beforehand. The housekeeping was the worst part of our stay. We removed the stained bed comforter and put... More

The Othon is almost a landmark in Copacabana Beach. You can see it from miles away and in most postcards of the city. I has a great bar upstairs by the rooftop pool, with beautiful views of the entire coast, a really nice restaurant that makes excellent feijoada and is great for parties, but that's pretty much it. The hotel... More

The only good thing about this hotel was the location and view. The room was very expensive for what it was. The whole hotel needs a face lift. It’s extremely busy under staffed. Breakfast is chaos, the food Repetitious and poor quality. the lifts get so busy that you wait for ages. The Wi-Fi is extremely expensive and terribly slow.... More

this hotel is a 3* venue at best (seen with European eyes). price does not reflect the value whatsoever. we stayed in the business room that was supposed to be refurbished... I wonder how the non-refurbished rooms are. however, the view of copacabana and the location was very good. breakfast was also good, rooms clean even though outdated.

Considering the price paid, this hotel is not worth, for sure. It’s highlight is its location. Seafront and in a very well-known and touristic area. I stayed with 5 other family members in 3 rooms, and there were a few points that really bothered us all during our stay: - Elevators taking 20 minutes to arrive in the morning between... More
