Very good hotel indeed! Nice building, right in the middle of the city, with a subway station 200m away and lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. The room is very comfortable and the breakfast is quite good. Prices of drinks and food are a little high though.

One week in Rio with a pleasant stay at Windsor. You can feel a long and good tradition of professional hotel management with experienced, helpful and friendly staff in all functions.

Good location and nice large room with excellent bathroom. The breakfast was good and plentiful. The location is excellent for being in the downtown area. Short walk to Lapa and the colorful steps.

Central location with metro station just round the corner. Lapa and the metropolitan cathedral is just round the corner and if you keep walking you could also reach Santa Teresa. Good breakfast and comfy room. Good wifi. They have a rooftop where you can relax or have a dip in a small swimming pool.

Stayed here specifically to see Rio city centre. It is very convenient- a short distance from Municipal Theatre, Library and main shopping streets. Staff v helpful and decent breakfast selection by Brazil standards. Standard rooms a little small, but comfortable. Nice shallow pool on rooftop to watch sunset an city views.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
