4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in business rooms on a high up floor with access to the business lounge, this also gives you access to the private breakfast buffet on the top floor where you can eat outside on the pool terrace with panoramic views (our highlight). Pool itself was heated and lovely - one of the best features. We think these rooms... More

Rio Othon Palace Hotel is located right on Copacabana Beach, Rio - right near shopping and restaurants and the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean (and had a great veiw). Rooftop pool and restaurant offer amazing views of the area. Would recommend this hotel for visitors to Rio looking for a good beach hotel.

We stayed here during the Olympics. Very nice spot with goods views of the Copacabana. Especially from the 30th Floor when we had breakfast. Pool is also nice located on that Floor. Breakfast ok, with enough choices. Rooms are a little but out dated, but clean and with a nice view of the beach.

We stayed here at vast expense during the Olympics. Positives. Outstanding view from our bedroom window on the 21st floor of the whole of Copacabana beach. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Comfortable large bed. Negatives. Decor and furnishings stuck in the 1980s. Bathroom unacceptable for a hotel of this supposed calibre. Bath looked like it had been artexed! Very slow lift... More

The hotel is a great location and during the Olympics was great networking as many people were here. As far as the rooms.. For the price the rooms need a upgrade. The staff is very attentive and overall a great stay! I would recommend it based on the location and the service!!!

I stayed here many times from 1978 to 1986 when I traveled on business when I was assigned to the Latin America Division of a large multinational bank. I stayed at several hotels in Copacabana and Ipanema. The Othon Palace was a favorite due to its great location, excellent service and comfortable rooms. I have very fond memories of my... More

Stayed in Sept 2014 but my review seems to have disappeared. Well located , OK rooms, very busy breakfast restaurant. £7 per day wi-fi charge a bit steep. Best thing was rooftop restaurant with great views of Copacabana and downtown Rio. Food good , prices not too bad - a must do while you are there.

The Othon chain hotels are very good. I have stayed in a few of them around Brazil. Its good for a vacation stay or business. The breakfasts are better than I expected at each one. The location is excellent. You are on Copa Beach and walking distance to Ipenema.

I had a nice room on the third try. Several rooms have severe mold issues. You walk through the door and smell the mold. The 20th floor was a big improvement over the other rooms. Even still, the doors do not have a good seal. There is always a gap where the humid air comes in. Other than that the... 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.
