I just came back from one week in Rio de Janeiro where I stayed in three differents property including the miramar by windsor. The taxi drop us at the corner as the street is a one way and no one realized that we needed help despite having three bellboy,doorman at the front. eventually at the door they took our suitcases. We arrived at the desk and David did our check in. What a long process , I had the impression that I was a five years old kid the way David explained the process of charging my card for 1 night and than pre authorised for the rest. Allo I travel I know what it means. we booked a twin superior sea side view. David tried to upswell us a sea view full, good employee for the hotel. We declined. Overall David is very good. No security card system in lift. Coming from the Fasano where you need to put your card to move the lift we were surprised that they did not have this. rio can be a bit unsecured so it brings a bit of safety feeling to know that stranger will not wonder on floor. room 1411 allocated. Even in Conakry in 1992 the AC unit was not as noisy. We could not leave it on while in the room. Reported 5 times nothing changed. The superior room is spacious enough. bed are ok. Did not like lighting or cheap flooring. bathroom .toilet not separated. no rain shower. Good l occitane toiletries . They do not replenish bath salt when used. no turndown service. A maid knocked at the door at around 6 pm everyday to give chocolate but do not do the bed, curtains or anything. bizarre what is the point. the doorman is dodgy we asked him a taxi to go to sugar loaf and he got us a yellow one talked to him and he started the meter at 12 real instead of 4.70 the next day when we took one ourself. 30 real to go to sugar loaf was a rip off. we asked a taxi to airport and they pushed us in the hotel car for 120 real knowing a taxi cost 60 real. Ok better than the 240 real that Fasano charged us to pick us up from the airport. the breakfast is definitely a plus in this property. Good quality, included in the room rate. organized even on Sunday. Whoever runs the show in there knows his job. Swimming pool small com on who designed this 10 sun loungers for so many rooms. the beach service should be all done at the beach. Why is the bell boy dealing with the towels.Get a good beach set up. We used the concierge for dinner and nightlife. Nelson is very very good and knows his staff he recommend great places to us and he is not pushy. He let u make ur own choice. On Saturday we asked recommendation for samba place Nelson was not there an other guy assist us . Useless he was he categorically refused to call the scenarium saying they did not take booking on Saturday. We finally went and queued for 1 hour .I do not have his name he did not have a name badge. overall this property is a good value for money. It is not a four seasons,a mandarin oriental or even the copacabana palace but the price is not the same. if you are looking for pure luxury stay at the copacabana palace but if you are looking for a comfortable and good value for monney than miramar is a safe choice.
