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

I stayed in this hotel for seven days and have nothing in particular to complain about. The staff was friendly and helpful, as you may expect from a four star hotel. The breakfast was very good. The swimmingpool area on the rooftop was very nice with a view of Copacabana below. The room was acceptable. Concerning noise I always use... More

We were here for 6 nights in December. The location is one block back from the northern end of Capacabana beach. The good: Pretty good, safe area. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was also very good. The bad: Small room. We were on the 16th floor and still could hear noises from the street... More

Booking in experience was a complete farce - never seen anything like it - worse than a zoo. We stayed here post cruise having stayed in a sister hotel in Iguassu Falls first (also not good). The room was large, we had a view of Copacabana beach from our room which was on the 17th floor. The wardrobes were large... More

Been there two times on business trips because i'm not the one choosing the hotels; if I did, i'd pass this one on every opportunity. Bad location: Leme, the very end of Copacabana Beach, dangerous for a night walk, terrible for getting taxi cabs (out of the usual path, only one one-way lane in...). Pool was closed both times. Breakfast... More

The Golden Tulip Continental. Is one block back from the famous Copocobana beach. That is the best thing about it. The room was like the cheapest room you could possibly imagine although it was quite clean. On the plus side was the buffet breakfast. This was very good with a large variety of food. Everything was very dated, there was... More

This hotel was awful - the room looked as if it had been furnished from the local charity shop, specialising in 1960s furniture which no one else would buy. The pool was closed, with no alternative offered. Service in the bar was dreadful - the white wine I ordered was red (but at least it was chilled!) and the beer... More
