The hotel was built as the Luxor in the 1930's and received some renovations when it became the Tulip Inn. The location is right across the street from Copacabana Beach and a short walk to public transportation, restaurants, banks and shopping. Although I was a single person in a double room, the room was quite small with barely enough room... More

Location was excellent. Hotel staff was friendly. Restaurant served excellent food. Wifi was terrible. Tub and shower updates are a necessity. Cold showers 3 afternoons. Finally, took a bath so I didn't have to take another cold shower. The tubs had been painted and left me with paint chips on my skin. We never found the fitness center or the... More

Theoretically, a step below its brother Golden Tulip, close by. In reality, a slightly better experience. Rooms basic and unconfortable, but breakfast is quite good, with a view to the beach. I just do not like the chain and I try to avaoid as much as possible when traveling in Brazil. Overpriced (Rio's problem) and suffering from the usual arquitectural... More

Apart from the fact that they returned my stuff, which was jewelry btw, the hotel is in a great location. The restaurant in not bad either. The rooms could use a little TLC, but they're also not bad. Thank you Patricia for finding my things!! You should give her a raise Tulip Inn!

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. On the one hand: prime location, buffet style, tasty breakfasts, free beach towels but on the other: cramped interior, small rooms, tiny single lift, old furniture. We were fortunate to have a room with a side sea view and a balcony, those overlooking the inner courtyard are even smaller. Beware, some rooms are... More

Superb location right on Copacabana Beach. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, quiet rooms and an excellent breakfast. Very secure. I was able to leave luggage there while I visited the Pantanal. Great value for money. Located next door to the JW Marriott, Copacabana with many excellent restaurants, cafes and bars within walking distance.

Due to business I stayed in Rio and in this hotel. First of all: the friendliness of service is outstanding! I have only very rarely had friendlier service! But my first room was not really nice - super small (I was barely able to open up my suitcase fully) and in definite need of a renovation/repainting. I changed rooms after... More

The hotel's location is very good, right by Copacabana's beach. Unfortunately the rooms are small, with old fixtures and very bad internet connection. The corridors are carpeted and smell of mould. The elevators are small and crowded, and the stairways down are terrible! The hotel is going through a renovation, which will be good but for now just means lots... More

This is a very nice place. Nice attentive staff. We arrived early and the got us our room two hours earlier! All the waiters in the restaurants are extremely nice and provide great service. The room was very comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

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.
