The Rio Orthon was a great hotel, it has such great views of both Copacabana as well as Ipanema. Daniel at reception was super helpful in giving us advice and was very friendly. It was very busy because of Carnival happening, but it was all good energy.

Hello, it was a great experience, in the hotel I had all the comforts, we really liked the Junier suite, very good view, spacious, and clean... in the administrative aspect everyone was very friendly, cordial and professional... especially the lady Carla from the VIP... who was very professional in her work and attentive in everything, she made us feel comfortable during our stay... the best of all is the location near the sea, and if I would return to the hotel again... thank you very much for everything and stay the same...

This was my second trip to Brazil in the last few months. There were so many sights to see, events to attend, friends to talk to and places to go. From the arrival at the hotel, I was checked in by Daniel, who began the introduction to a exceptional experience. The service, care and quality I received went beyond mere hospitality. From ensuring I was comfortable with the room, assisting with a magnificent upgrade, to finding the best porter whos kindness is usually found among friends. The location, food and views were amazing. Yet what really really set this apart what happened about half way through the trip. I had received some bad news that morning and overcome with emotion shed tears into my breakfast. Again the staff was there, as Neide calmed me, consoled me and was ready to provide anything to make my stay better. Trying to make the most of the day, a conversation with the staff and concierge got me tickets to a Samba school where I dance the night away, with new friends I met and let the cares wash away. I ended my trip with a calm night sitting on the rocks watching the sun set. Ive been to 25 countries around the world, and most major US cities, stayed in countless hotels, even worked with a few. I can say with full confidence that my experience would have been less then memorable if not for such a tremendous service and care that I received. Just in case my sincere and heartfelt response wasn't informative enough. The Rio Othon is (currently) the tallest, this not only offers the best views it also makes it easy to spot. The beach spots, restaurants and shops near by make the location very convenient. Yet one of the best things about this is the familiarity, with my limited Brazilian not needed, I simply held up by room key to taxis and with a nod was on the way. I recommend everyone visit Rio at least once. Book in advance for the best deals. And even it its only for a day, stay at the Rio Othon its an experience you wont forget. Thank you All.

Booked for 7 nights. Disappointed with room on arrival as not a cheap hotel. We upgraded to floor 24 front sea view so much better. Much newer and better bed!! Totally different. We also received and upgrade to VIP breakfast on the 30th floor.quiet with waiter service. Which was lovely to be honest.no fuss or rush. Amazing view over beach. Cleaned everyday.good TV and Wi-Fi. Beach towels provided although beach area chairs were hard to get. And beware of beach workers who will scam you for chairs and drinks. All in all a good 4star hotel.would recommend.

Jblaz, we are sorry that your arrival experience was not as expected, we are committed to offering high quality of service and care to our guests and it is good to know that we were able to turn the situation around satisfactorily and that you enjoyed your room. We are happy that you enjoyed our breakfast, the view and Copacabana Beach - we would like to clarify that our space on the beach is limited by law, therefore we cannot offer as many chairs as we would like to our guests. Thank you for leaving your comment and recommendation, we remain at your disposal and we hope to welcome you again soon.

I'm not sure we could have picked a better place for our home base during our stay in Rio. You could spend a week in the immediate area and still find great food and enjoyment. The location provides for great evenings because you can walk to so many places. You have a night market out front of the hotel, and the copacabana beach steps away. I would not waste any time looking for another hotel should I return... this one served all the needs. Oh yeah... they have the best free breakfast I've ever seen. 10+ fruits, various breads and cakes, 6+ drink options, and so many other things. Very good hotel... oh yeah, one more thing... security monitoring access 24 hours.

I had a great stay at the Rio Othon Palace hotel on Copacabana Beach. The hotel is in an excellent location with a fantastic view. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly, especially Caroline, who allowed a late checkout free of charge for my late evening flight, and also Beatriz and Suelen at the reception. When I come back to Rio de Janeiro, I will definitely stay in this hotel again.

I was unfortunate enough to have stayed in this hotel for over a week on a business trip. The service was appalling and the hotel grotty (there was an unpleasant odor throughout the place). The food at the meeting and breakfast bar was barely edible (the food at restaurant on the roof was actually pretty good) and I ended up going out for breakfast even though it was covered in the room rate. On top of that I had at least one item stolen from the room. It is beyond me how this hotel obtained its trip advisor rating because it doesn’t deserve it. I strongly recommend you go somewhere else.
