“Good with some minor remarks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

I always try to stay in accor hotels when on a trip, so I in Rio and opting for 5 star, i could choose between the Sofitel on CopacAbana and ceasar park at ipanema. Read my review of sofitel!
Ceasar park is nice hotel:
Positive:
Breakfast: the best in Rio
Location: on the beach, 2 blocks away from the best shopping, close to lagoa, close to leblon ( great restaurants)
Rooms: spacey and great bed
Negative:
Pool: the pool is just ridiculously small. And you need to pass through the restaurant to get to the four lounge chairs.
Sauna and steambath: looked like they were installed in worldwar 2
Bathroom: the bathtub was rather small, drained badly and the showerhead was fixed, so cleaning the bath was easy ( which explained why even after cleaning service came, the bathtub still had sand in it.
Towelservice: there is towelservice on the beach, and then there is a shower next to the hotel so you can clean up, but you have to leave your towel at the beachstand, and there are no towels near the shower, so what is the deal with that?

So an ok hotel, but after visiting india, a 5star hotel in Rio is just not the same as a 5star hotel in India.

Together with the Copacabana Palace the Ceasar is probably one of the best located hotels in town. It claims to be a five star hotel but new owner and management (Sofitel) have realized that it clearly needs to be redone (planned according to staff); the years are showing..... The price for a small double room with side ocean view was rather high (USD 390.- incl. breakfast plus taxes etc.). We stayed 5 nights and saw a lot of people coming and going. Due to its splendid location on Ipanema beach, being a safe place for tourists, with some nice restaurants and the Leblon Shopping center close by it's certainly a good but expensive choice. Locals prefer Copacabana beach for its more casual and diverse style (in any respect) but that's up to one's preferences. The facilities (lobby, bar / restaurant, breakfast room in floor 23 etc.) are small and therefore tend to be crowded. The breakfast buffet offers an excellent variety of everything and the view from the 23rd floor is breathtaking. Service was friendly except for the reception which seemed to be overextended by too many people trying to check in. Depending on the person assigned you got nicer or less friendly service (the ladies definitely were more service oriented). Check-in quality was criticized by quite some other travelers. Concierge staff was helpful and - depending on the person on duty - spoke English. The overall rating from my perspective taking into consideration that Sofitel claims this to be a 5 star hotel is a good (better than average but not very good, which for unknown reasons is not offered to be ticked by Tripadvisor.....?!). As we did not book the hotel ourselves we did not have to make a thorough analysis of the Rio hotel world and therefore have no comparison. However, we would certainly reconsider an evaluation to stay again at the Ceasar in the future.

Room Tip: If a spectacular view is important to you and you can afford and want to spend quite some money on a...

We did know anything about Rio before we went, so I think we were lucky to stay at the best place in town! The location could not have been better. Right across from the most beautiful beach. A short ride to everything. Great staff, especially Lucia. Great drivers to all attractions. Helpful people, clean and spacious room with great views! Nice restaurants nearby in a safe neighborhood. Is all there!

Room Tip: Ask for a jr suite to get a upper large room with a great view! and to get Breakfast on the 20th fl...

My husband and I stayed at the Caesar Park hotel for 3 nights while in Rio. While the nightly room rate was higher than we expected prior to the trip, we came away pleasantly surprised and would recommend the hotel to friends and others looking for a great experience during a trip to Rio.

First, we were pleasantly surprised to get upgraded from a partial ocean view to a full ocean view (corner room) that offered a fantastic panoramic shot. Our guest room was large, clean, and inviting.

Second, hotel staff were very helpful. We felt welcome throughout our stay and the concierge staff was knowledgeable and spoke excellent english. We left our luggage and goods throughout our room with nary a concern while keeping valuables in the easy to use safe.

Third, we felt very safe in/around the hotel location as we frequently walked the Ipanema area and biked to Copa Cabana or ran the boardwalk in the morning. The beach access was second to none and the hotel provided beach chairs and a plethora of access to food/drinks on the beach. The Ipanema nightlife was fantastic, and we greatly enjoyed visiting the restaurants. We were only short taxi rides to the many attractions of Rio (e.g., sugarloaf, favela tours, Christ the Redeemer, football matches).

Lastly, the hotel provided us late check out, access to a hotel guest area throughout our stay that provided beverages (water, soda, coffee) and small snacks, and the hotel staff allowed us to access the gym and showers after our late check out and before heading to the airport.

We believe the new Sofitel management has put in place a very capable staff and clean rooms. The location was already fantastic. I would happily stay at this hotel again if traveling to Rio for pleasure or business.

Room Tip: Partial or full ocean view is fantastic if reasonably priced and available.

We stayed for 2 nights the first week of March. Not sure about the reviews that say the hotel is dated w/ worn curtains and such. It was in immaculate condition everywhere we looked. The staff was extremely attentive. Of course, the location is perfect w/ the heart of the beach across the street and great restaurants within a few blocks. Also - we felt very safe in and around the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel in Rio.

Here you pay 500 dollars/night and what you get is nothing special but a nice view, rooms are average with dirty carpets, torn curtains and worn furniture.
Bathroom dark and not in good condition, varnish broken and mold in walls and ceiling.
Location is good and view if you get one of the rooms facing the beach nice bt expect a lot of noise cause the windows are single glass and since very early in the morning and till very late in the night you are in front of one of the most crowded streets in Rio.
Personnel freindly, breakfast good but tiny restaurant so expect waiting to be seated.
If I compare this hotel with what you can get in Europe, USA or somewhere else for thos 500/night, I'd had to say this is a robbery.
Not many options in Rio though!!..everything is overpriced and bad condition.

Room Tip: Highest floor possible to avoid noise from the sreet, facing beach so unless you'll have views

Good modern hotel in ipanama. Restaurant in the 23rd floor has a great view as does the fitness center. Rooms were modern and spacious. Free wifi was a plus. Right on the beach which is the best thing. Staff was competent and helpful.
