you pay for, what you receive, overall this hotel was about 4-5 blocks or a 5 minute walk to the beach.. this building appears to be a converted apartment building about 6 bedrooms on each and a bar and pool on the top floor, there really wasn't much of a view but still enjoyable. the breakfast in the morning was...

It is a nice hotel, which a cost per night lower than the average in the region. The location is nice, only few blocks from the beach, the rooms are comfortable and clean. The bed is not very comfortable but that is common in Brazil. I would recommend it if you do not want to spend a lot and do... More

May be exist better places considering the price. The lateral room is like a corridor. The breakfast is well served, it has swimming pool, gym room and is near of "Copa" beach. I recommend search another options, but if you must stay here, consider is near the Copacabana.

Hotel is excellently situated just a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The hotel rooms are quiet and adequate, the pool on the top of the hotel is lovely and has views all over Rio. Reception staff were efficient and helpful. Not too expensive either!

One of the worst experiences I have had with a hotel that has been rated 3.5 stars on Trip Advisor and said to be reliable and very good by tour operators. Don't believe it. Majestic Rio Palace Hotel location, facilities, services, staff, furnishings and food was abysmal. They're not ready for Olympics 2016. The tour group that recommends this hotel... More

Good location, room was clean and functional although the air conditioning unit was like having a helicopter land in your room. Too noisy to use at night. The included breakfast was standard hotel fare. The staff, while not being rude, didn't go out of their way to be friendly.

I chose this hotel because of the price, but the old adage "you get what you pay for" is clear in this scenario. My wife and I wanted to stay in Copacabana because of the great beach, central location to everything, and pretty much because of the name. We arrived early at the hotel and they allowed us to check... More

I stayed at majestic rio for 3 days and 2 nights and have only positive feedback. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. They did everything they could to accommodate us. We arrived way earlier then expected and they let us store our luggage until our room was ready. They made it possible for us to check in earlier then... More

We stayed here for Carnaval. It is about 10 min to the beach and 5 min walk to a metro station, so ideally located for our stay. A nice small pool area which wasn't overcrowded. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly. They booked taxis which were about double the price of a metered taxi but saved the hassle of... More

We had a great stay at this hotel in July 2014. The hotel is in a good location - 10 minutes walk to Copaocabana beach and 5 minutes from a metro. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was basic but good enough, with an all important safe. Best of all was the breakfast - huge choice and... More
