Stayed here for a few nights during the world cup. At that time we obviously paid an inflated price, but at 'normal' times I would think this hotel is in the range of a budget / average hotel (perhaps 3 stars if one was feeling generous). The big plus for this place is the location. Literally 50 metres from the... More

Despite all bad reviews we took our chances with booking via Booking.com for a 3 night stay during the World Cup at Oceano Hotel. We had no choice as all other hotels were booked in Copacabana. I'll be honest I was expecting a lot worse. The hotel is dated and the customer service wasn't the best but the location makes... More

I stayed here for a few nights during the World Cup and I was very pleased with how close it was to the beach. Restaurants and stores are all around. The price wasn't too bad either. The room was nice and clean. The staff was very great for the most part, all knowledgeable and fluent in English. The bellmen helped... More

The price of this hotel is unbelievable, you should pay only 10% of the hole price. It is not worthed any more. I have a "problem" with the reservation so I had to pay some more...unbelievable. I paid for a ocean view room, i got nothing. The room has a tiny ugly bed, the a/c doesnt work, and you have... More

This is, by far, the biggest dissapointment ever. The hotel is as bad as in all the bad reviews below, actually, it worse. Spent there three nights with my boyfriend during the first days of the World Cup. Extremely overpiced, very old hotel. The location is perfect. And that's it. We saw a few cockroaces, during then the breakfast and... More

I've just returned from Brasil, and having spent 2 nights in this hotel felt compelled to share my review, for £190 per night its the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. The plus point as many reviews note is its location only 50 metres from the beach front. However the rooms are grubby and dated for... More

Great location for FIFA fan fest! Only steps from the beach great view of water from our balcony. Staff was very helpful (especially Caeser) during the hectic first week of world cup. I stayed there with my two daughters and would definitely would stay there again. Though pool was very small, definitely worth a drink to catch the views from... More

Stayed at the hotel during the opening week of the world cup and had an enjoyable stay at the hotel. Awesome location as its a few meters from the beach and the service at the hotel was fantastic. Hotel is a bit old so dont expect a 5 star hotel look. Rooms are spacious enough. Its a mid sized hotel... More

This hotel has good location but room is very small and old. They have funny pool. Just 2 inside the pool then you cant swim, but only stay like Jacuzzi, because it is toooo small. They should not advise or mention they have pool. We booked room with balcony sea view, but was not given as we paid. We paid... More

Customer services is extremely slow. It do not seem to be smoke free. Breakfast with few options. Daily rate too expensive for the benefits (good location, near the beach). Many customers claiming in the lobby when I was leaving.
