Great location for trips and getting about, no bar only a pool bar on the roof. Breakfast very good selection, staff very friendly. Room very tired, albeit the bathroom had a good shower! The area does look a bit dodgy but it's fine and no view of the Copacabana beach though !

Stayed here recently on business and was very disappointed. The hotel overall is outdated and desperately needs a refresh. The rooms are poorly decorated and uncomfortable with poor facilities. It is in a great location- 5 minutes walk from Copacabana Beach but I wouldn't recommend staying here. We were in a large group and some members requested to leave early... More

Stayed three nights at this wonderful hotel for the beginning of a 6 week holiday in and around South America. Right opposite Copacabana Beach. Restaurant was a choice of menu or buffet. Busy area, but our room was quiet. Would recommend

Great Hotel very close to Copacabana (around 3-4 minutes walk). Opposite a supermarket and near a subway which we found useful. The hotel offers a very good breakfast which was very tasty every morning. Free wifi came with the room and worked very well which is also very handy.

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
