Olinda Rio Hotel
Ranked #92 of 283 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed August 9, 2014

I chose the hotel, because it was one of the few that offered a three bed room. The location is central to Copacabana. Our room did not have an ocean view, but was a good size and comfortable. A little tired maybe, but in keeping with the star rating in this part of Rio. The staff were amazing - so helpful and always smiling. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the bar man had our night caps ready, without us asking. We checked in at 6am and they gave us a room to use, at no extra charge. We came back later and our bags had been moved to our designated room. Such great service! Highly recommended, especially for families.

Stayed: August 2014, traveled with family

The staff was very friendly, the room was spacious with a fantastic ocean view especially early morning. We loved the interior - and the food was great. Breakfast was delicious. We had a marvelous stay. It made our stay very special.

The service was very good. The front desk staff was amazing. The food was good too.
Everything was great except our room.
It was old and in desperate need of renovation. Ocean view room is recommended (distracts from the room)! Then again, we were only in our room to sleep so for us it was OK.

Room Tip: High floor and beach view!!

We booked a luxury double room with balcony for a few nights at the start of the World Cup .

What a superb location this hotel is in. We overlooked the fifa fanfest where we watched Brazils opening game with 100,000 others, an experience I will never forget.

The view from the balcony was unbelievable, especially at 6am when the sun came up. The atmosphere down copacabana during the World Cup was fantastic, and the positioning of the hotel put us in the centre of it all.

The room was big. Although the bathroom was a little dated and the hotel did not have a pool, the location and reception staff more than made up for it.

Breakfast was plentiful, and the dining room was really classy. I will definitely come back to stay here.

Overall my wife and I loved the hotel .

One word of advice, do not get a hotel to the airport through the hotel, they are more expensive than hailing one down on the street.

Stayed: June 2014

I stayed here for a week during the World Cup and had a blast. The room was nice and big enough for my friend and I. Renato and Rodrigo in particular were very helpful at the front desk and the workers were friendly. I lucked out in that they spoke English at the hotel since my Portuguese is limited and they addressed any concerns of mine. It also didn't hurt that it was right across the street from Copacabana Beach. I would absolutely stay here again!

Booked this hotel in Rio for a few days during the world cup and requested a sea view. The location of this hotel is excellent right on the sea front and 1 minute from the beach which could not be better also had an excellent view of the FIFA Fan Fest. Ok so some of the room furniture maybe a bit dated and the bathrooms maybe could do with a re tile but hey this is Rio so you are not going to spend much time in the room. We are a family and had requested 2 rooms and the hotel very kindly managed to move us after 1 night to inter connecting rooms with a sea view which was amazing. Yes its noisy at the front of the hotel but that's what you would expect during the World Cup we loved the fact the outside atmosphere came into our room!! The reception staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English and the breakfast was also really good lots of choice both hot and cold with a great variety of fresh fruits. Having a great doorman was also a touch of luxury and being able to get towels and umbrellas for the beach was a real advantage. The only advice I would give is don't book any excursions via the hotel just go across the road to the information point and save yourself a whole load of money. Would recommend this hotel and we were really sorry to leave.

Room Tip: Sea view is great but noisy

This is not the flashiest hotel in Rio. The rooms are a little tired, but you're in prime Copacabana position, a room with a balcony overlooking the beach is quite inexpensive, the staff are great, and the breakfast is wonderful. It's a really nice hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Absolutely go for a balcony room overlooking the beach.
