My first hotel in Rio de Janeiro, bad hotel, the services it's bad also, it's no clean, I was afraid to go bear feet in my room, it's noisy, good location, and very very expensive, you can get around very easy, but all Rio smell bad, very dirty all around. Look for something else.

Stayed here on business in October 2013, it's at the far end of Copacabana within a short walk of the beach. The rooms are small, bleak and in urgent need of redecoration. The noise from the street is also a major issue on the lower floors, as is the odd smell in the corridors. Breakfast though was pleasant enough. Stay... More

Booked this hotel last minute and was pleasantly surprised. Extremely friendly reception, clean and recently refurbished rooms, excellent breakfast buffet. There is a small swimming pool on the roof top but the best thing is the amazing view on the beach and Rio de Janeiro from there. It is only 400 meters walking from Copacabana beach so perfect for early... More

A tired, run-down and higgledy-piggledy hotel. The view from the roof is fantastic, but you need to get two lifts up there to see it - that's when they are working. The breakfast is okay and the location is good, but the service is shocking. The cleaner, in her wisdom, decided to throw away my wash-bag. Will not be returning.

we were given 5 Star rating service from minute we arrived until we were leaving. The staff went out of their way to meet what needs we had. It will be an experience that myself, Robbie Galvin, and Dan Bishop will forever be grateful for the warm welcome and extra mile service. We will always remember our stay at GTC.... More

We stayed there with my family for new year. Rio during this period is just great. We rather enjoyed this hotel. Overall, good value and service for a mid-category hotel. First of all, the location of the hotel is great. It is second row on the iconic Copacabana beach. This allow us to enjoy the new year fireworks from the... More

I've been a few times at the Golden Tulip Continental, and the only thing that I really like of this hotel is its nice location in the quiet area of Leme, 50 meters from the beach. The structure is quite old and both rooms and other facilities would require some renovation. The fitness area is always under restructuring, but fortunately... More

Booked this hotel, since online booking rates sounded little lucrative for the Brand of Golden Tulip...however, this one is quite different from other properties. Rooms were very average...mine was somewhat of a suite pattern (kinda 2 small rooms)...wonder if they would have been made into a single room, would have been much better. Only good part was that its just... More
