Stayed at the hotel during the carnival season. All hotels have a minimum stay of five nights. Check in was fast, was given a map and recommend local restaurants that catered for vegetarians. The staff at reception spoke fluent English. The room was nice size . We had the room on the 16th floor with partial view of the Copacabana... More

This hotel is friendly and has a good location for Copacabana Beach. Lots of restaurants around the corner and along the beach front. We did not have a room with a view, just roof tops, so get a room at the top! The hotel pool is tiny on the roof but barman friendly and helpful up there.

Two four-day stays, five days apart. 50 m. from Copacabana sea-front and 150m from Information Kiosk with Corcovado Train booking. Hotel service impeccable at Reception, Restaurant and Roof Terrace. Breakfast generous. First stay - our arrival at a darkened hotel at 3:00 a.m. made our hearts sink but the rattle of keys as we climbed from the taxi reassured and... More

Pros: Good location, only two blocks away from Copacabana beach, and near to many restaurants and bus stop/ metro station. Confortable rooms, good quality, modern furniture. The breakfast is included and has very good options. Nice staff members willing to help you find touristic activities. Rooms with balcony for those who wants to smoke. Cons: The pool area is very...

Now I say 'pleasantly surprised' because I had heard lots about Rio hotels claiming 4 star but failing to deliver ... this was not the case with this hotel from my perspective. That said, this hotel cost me more than anywhere else in Sth America- I wanted the view and I sure paid to get it!!! Was it worth it... More

I stayed at the Windsor palace back in Sept following a business trip elsewhere in Brazil. The room was clean and a good size with comfortable bed although I was a little daunted by the fact the patio doors onto the balcony didn't seen to lock! Being a couple of floors up meant it was safe but I just needed... More

This is a fabulous smaller scale hotel. Its proximity to Copacabana Beach is fantastic. Hotel staff are multi lingual and very helpful. The doorman actually walked my husband and I right to the door of a restaurant that the hotel was recommending. There are a number of nearby very good restaurants, bars, convenience store. The buffet breakfast was completely satisfying... More

It is a good hotel for the budget conscious traveller. It has all the basic requirements and helpful staff. Ask for a quiet room high above, as facing the road and being lower down can be a problem I think. The view from the terrace is lovely and can be quite relaxing in the evening? Being so close to the... More
