We stayed here during Carnaval 2014. The hotel is clean and the rooms were adequate, but it was extremely overpriced (due to the time of year no doubt). There is not a lot going on in the vicinity of the hotel but there are buses and metros nearby and it's easy to get a taxi from right outside. The beach... More

Few days in Rio at a nice hotel with nice and helpfull personel, nice restaurant with a good breakfast, the hotel is not located at the beach but pretty close to the Copacobana beach. The hotel is a good starting point for visiting other tourist attractions in Rio.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean and the staff were helpful and many even spoke English. The biggest downside was the Wifi - it only worked in the hallway of our room, but not the room proper. This wasn't a big deal since we weren't in Rio to surf the Internet, and there was a... More

Chosen because of location for a conference and an (apparently) reasonable price, this hotel really disappointed. The room was tiny with room only for the bed. There was a tiny lobby with a small round table and 2 chairs plus a bathroom hidden round the back of the closet. It was single glazed and extremely noisy all night, with an... More

We stayed in Real Palace for 4 nights in January 2013. The hotel is 2 blocks from the amazing Copacabana beach, the rooms are a bit tired, but offer everything you need. I definitely must mention that the staff was simply the best: warm, welcoming, extremely helpful and full of smiles from the receptionists (especially Marcello and Duarte), to the... More

Located next to everything. next to beach, next to main street to take bus, 2 blocks from metro station. Good value for your money. We will come back for sure... More

This hotel has its best years far beyond. Obviously very old, the rooms would need a refurbishment. Advantage here is good location as you are 5 minutes walk from Copacabana beach and near to metro Cardeal Arcoverde. Breakfast is quite good with lots of choices and the people serving breakfast are very helpful and cheerful. This cannot be said about... More

Located in Copacabana just a couple of blocks off of the beach. I have stayed in 2 different Rio hotels recently and this was the better of the two. The room furnishings were a bit luxurious and inviting. No breakfast, which is unusual. Polite front desk service. The room and bathroom were clean.

I stayed here on a business trip in January 2012. The hotel felt very tired and the bathroom needed refitting. While the rooms very clean everything was very basic and slightly oldfashioned. The staff were mostly very helpful, however only one member of staff spoke good english which meant a couple of times when I had questions I had to... More
