We stayed at the Golden Tulip in Leme for two weeks; combining at work stint at UFRJ/IBICT with some leisure time (how could you not do so when the beach is so invitingly close?). The location is wonderful and Leme is quieter than the Copacabana end of the beach, which was a plus for us. Sure, you could hear noise... More

I stayed 5 days in tl golden tulip with my wife in may 2015. The location is great, given that we move only by taxi, which are cheap, the farest distant was like 12 dolars. In addition the beach is just 100 meters away and less crowded that the part of copacabana near ipanema. Great staff, very kind and helpful.... More

During a "feriado" (bank holiday), my wife and myself stayed for three nights. Location of the hotel is good, the room we had was recently refurbished and looked nice, although the shower was not too clean. The doors of the room are very thin though, so noisy rooms, and light from the corridor enters, so no darkness at night. But... More

On the positive side, reception service was adequate and the room was good as it had been refurbished. However, on the negative side, the restaurant was awful. The staff were surly and disinterested. If you walk out of the hotel toward the beach about 50 yds, there's an Italian restaurant on the front that was excellent. In terms of facilities,... More

We were unfortunate to get two old rooms, when staying at the hotel. The hallway outside the rooms smelled really bad and the rooms themselves were worn out, brown and smelly. The beds were good though and we didn't go to Rio to stay in our rooms, but still... the quality was not acceptable. Especially not when paying more than... More

Stayed one night at the end of a cruise and suggested by travel agent. Very close to the beach and selection of restaurants and great view from rooftop pool area. We could see the beach if we looked sideways from our bedroom window. We had two very large beds in what I think was a renovated room. Fridge was a... More

We stayed at the Golden Tulip Continental for 5 nights between Christmas and New Year's Eve. The location is very close to the beach and we found it very safe. At first we were given a horrible outdated room but when we complained that it was not what was advertised on their website, they immediately changed the room for one... More
