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

Spent four days here on my first visit to Rio. It is a perfect location right on the beachfront at Copacabana. The rooms are comfortable, if a little on the spartan side regarding furnishings. We had a huge double bed and a pretty big room with a sea view. The views are spectacular. Rooftop pool is a little disappointing as... More

Like a lot of hotels in Rio, Othon palace is from 80s. It's on the expensive sid, but it's def worse than holiday inn in the states. It needs remodeling and upgrading. The hallways are quite depressing with red carpet and green walls. The rooms are so so for the price. Rio has problems with plumbing in general, so be... More

My wife and I spent a couple of unforgettable weeks at this hotel and loved every minute. You couldn't get a better location during Carnival right on Copacabana beach very near Ipanenema. Super polite service, immaculate room with amazing views of Sugarloaf and Corcovado, brilliant.

Came here for drinks. Ordered a strawberry daiquiri... Ohhhh boy they put lemon and lime in it!! The daiquiri was bitter than lemon itself! In a water class and huge ice. I asked the bartender to blend it and add more rum. When he returned he finally poured my daiquiri into the appropriate class...but it was still bitter. I'm Irish... More

This is a very good hotel well located in Copacabana beach, so you will have access to many places (restaurants & tours agents), with a nice view to the beach from the room. Great food, service and staff well trained, they were very helpful.

Talking about Copacabana, this is one the best places to stay. Wide rooms front to the sea, well cleaned, good room service. The hotel has some details which you can see is an old hotel, but well preserved. Breakfast outstanding. Definately would come back.

First let me honest: beggars cannot be choosers and I booked last minute for business during the World Cup. I was in an Executive Room which was….tiny. And expensive. Location is great but the quality is more like a Super 8 on a grand scale.

Stayed at the Othon Palace for World Cup for a week. I can say that the room was worth 5% of what was paid. In the US this hotel would/should be $69 per night. Threadbare carpet was my first indication that this wouldn't be the experience I had hoped for. It appeared that several pieces of carpet had been glued... More
