We stayed at the Windsor during the final weekend for the World Cup. The room was really comfortable, except for the bathroom which was a bit disappointing considering the price of the hotel - just a basic shower. The food was fairly good and the general vibe amongst the staff is ok. They're not overly enthusiastic and communicating in English... More

Windsor Plaza Copacabana is a good hotel between Copacabana and Leme.I consider a god place to stay because the access to the beach, subway and many streets are very close. this hotel is a bit old in Rio but after a big refurbishment became a comfy and clean building to stay.

The rooms are very clean and well-kept, but our original room was very small. After looking at 2 more rooms, the hotel manager at that time was able to upgrade our room to a slightly bigger one with a street view which was a LOT better. Nonetheless, the location of the place on Princesa Isabel Avenida is VERY busy -... More

We had a very pleasant stay at The Windsor Plaza. We found that Rio in general tends to be quite pricey accommodation wise in the tourist areas. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you can get it at a good rate, I personally think the regular prices are a bit steep. Having said that, the staff were excellent and... More
