I really appreciate the business service and the structure I think that an hotel as this one should offer a gym in the price while it is covered a part and this surprised me. The room is clean and spacious Extraordinary the breakfast location

We enjoyed our stay at the Rio Orthon. Location perfect. Breakfast is great with excellent view, outdoor pool with great view, nice bar for drinks. Carpet odorous and needs replacing and renovations underway. Amenities of shampoo not very good. Beach service is great with your Rio Orthon card.

My wife and I booked a hotel down the street from the Rio Othon Palace and immediately realized we made a huge mistake. I hate to be insensitive but it smelled like a bad convalescent home. We immediately knew we needed a new hotel, now considering we had already paid in advance for the first hotel through a travel website... More

This is a very good hotel and the staff is even better. We had a great time at Othon Palace staying many days over there for the Olympic Games. The front desk, the concierge, the door man, restaurant, they were all great and really nice with us. The hotels was full of people for the Games, including presidents from Europeans... More

As others have mentioned, the main highlight of the hotel, provided you have a room overlooking the sea, is an amazing view of the Copacabana beach with a great location on the beach near to Ipanema and a couple of minutes walk to Cantagalo underground station. However, the hotel has some drawbacks, a five star hotel really should have hot... More

I was working at the Rio Olympic Games and stayed at the Rio Othon Palace Hotel. My experience there was first class. The staff were extremely helpful and happy to assist me. The ocean view room was beautiful with uninterrupted views of Copacabana beach and Sugarloaf mountain. The breakfast buffet was substantial and delicious. I would happily recommend this hotel...

I stayed here during the Olympics. The location is excellent and it was an easy access to the Copacabana Beach. The rooms were outdated but clean. I live in Dubai and here the Hotel would be classified as a 2 -3 Star Hotel. The elevators were very busy and sometimes I had to wait longer than 10 minutes or take... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
