I stayed 2 nights at the hotel on a business trip to Rio. The hotel location by the beach is great and I enjoyed jogging along the beach. On both sides of the hotel there are restaurants where I enjoyed nice dinners. The room was ok but not more. Expensive Wireless internet (a most for a business hotel) was poor... More

Truly a wonderful hotel. I am a meeting planner based out of Texas (USA) and I travel all over the world hosting meetings and events. In February 2014 I was given a meeting to take place in Rio de Janeiro. Seeing as though I had never before been, I was a tad nervous as to what I could expect. Needless... More

The Windsor Barra is quite a drive from the Rio International Airport but it is worth the trip. Barra de Tijuca is a newer part of Rio and it feels less crowded. There are more green spaces in this part of the city and the hotel is right on the well-treed and wide boulevard that one crosses to go to... More

Having visited Rio several times and staying on Copacabana I must say the Barra beach was a nice change. This hotel is very clean and well run. The restaurant buffet is excellent. It is a distance from the landmarks in Rio but if you want a nice place to stay with a great non crowded beach this is it!

Nice business hotel with well equiped rooms. It is a petty that the rooms have only small windows, thus making them rather dark. On the 17th floor there is a nice pool with absolutely great view, especially at sunset.

What can be better than Rio de Janeiro... This with good service, nice room and good food. You got it. Ohh, don't forget there is a really nice beach just in front of you.

The location is a little bit far from the city spots, but is located in front of an amazing beach. The room service is ok, nice staff and good bed, room size (a big one), loccitane toiletries + amenities. The Breakfest is good too, but the worst thing is the internet service that doesn`t work. It`s a shame. I lost... More

I went to this hotel for a conference, and spent 5 days there by myself. When I checked in, I didn´t realized they booked a smoking room for me, probably a mistake from the agency person. As soon as I got into the room, I smelled the ash in the air, claimed for a non-smoking one, and I was happy... More

The Windsor Barra is located just by Barra beach only separated from it by a quite busy road. I didn't have a room facing directly to the beach so I can't tell if you hear the traffic inside but I'd guess you do as you do even having a room facing to one of the sides of the hotel. The... More

I stayed at this hotel in Aug 2008 for a week. This is a great property, with a private beach of its own, just across the road. The room was fabulous, and so was the breakfast. Overall service was good. Location - its a bit far away from the main thoroughfare - Copa cabana and Ipanema beaches and the downtown.
