“Great Stay in Tulip Inn Copacabana”
Reviewed June 23, 2010

The hotel is in a very good location. We got a room with the ocean view which was really nice. The room is modern and in good condition. TV has lots of channels (in few different languages). The toilet was a bit old looking but it was just a minor thing. Staff is very helpful however do not always trust in the taxi drivers they are recomending to you (they just want your money). Overall the time spent in tulip in copacabana was good and would certainly come back there. Breakfast is everyday the same but is enough things to choose from.

After being unable to stay at the Continental due to overbooking, another hotel from the Golden Tulip chain, I found myself at the Tulip Inn transfered by a taxi paid by the other hotel. Soon I discovered that other guests were also forced to move to the Inn, that in spite of a slightly better location, was not my first choice. The hotel has no pool, its smaller and looks old. The attendants tried to make me realize that the Inn was way much better than the other and that I would have a great stay and even (wow....) gave me the key to the safe box (U$2 a day) complementary. However, the services lack the promised quality. First of all, the hotel needs a complete refurbishing, the only two relatively new things in the room are the TV and the air conditioning. The towels are still from the previous chain (Luxor) and the linen could be updated as well. Second, the corridors are dark and resemble an apartment building turned into hotel, and the rooms are relative smaller. I stayed on the 3rd floor facing another building kitchen and bathrooms, which demanded closed curtains all the time. Also, I was unable to open the room window and gave up before I broke something, so there is no view unless you climb in the toilet ou get a stiff neck, Third, the hotel is clearly understaffed and unprepared to a full house as expected in a prolonged weekend, the elevators are extremely small and crowded at rush hours such as breakfast, after waiting 10 minutes for a room in the lift I decided to go by stairs which is not very pleasant. The restaurant is too small to attend all guests and there was always a line to enter, and, when you enter, no plates, no cups and no clean tables and not enough waiters. Without proper staff, the ones that work are unable to present a good service, when I asked for a cup the waiter stretched to a dirty table at my side and gave me the one that was lying there, which I refused and asked for a clean in spite all his guarantees. Nevertheless, when he brought a clean cup from the kitchen (I hope), he picked up a plate from a dirty pile to put my cup on it. Since there was no point in talking, I just put the plate aside. So, cleanliness is not a very big concern and in 2 days that the room was cleaned the floor was never swept leaving sand, bread and the average dust from a certain time on it. Also, beware of the taxi drivers in front of the hotel recommended by the staff, they are only interested in long drives and always try to make the guest change their mind and spend more. I would not stay here again by my own choice. I have seen worse, but I have seen best, much best.

This hotel is tired and needs refurbishing. There is nothing actually wrong with the hotel, it is just not a very inviting environment (dark corridors, dated interior). Our room was very clean (in agreement with other reviews), and although freshly painted the furniture and bed is past its best. The bathroom was serviceable and had a good shower. We paid for a standard double room, which set back from the front, but still with a view of Copacabana beach (see photo). If you are unfortunate, you will get one of two standard rooms (per floor) on the back. Obviously the more you pay, the closer you are to having the beach front rooms.

Overall I recommend that you take a chance, look at reviews of other hotels on Copacabana beach and book another hotel instead. Saying that, we had a comfortable stay in the Tulip Inn Copacabana. Breakfast was good and the staff were helpful.

  • Liked — It is on Copacabana beach.
  • Disliked — It is tired and dated.

Due to a large conference in Rio, and all my usual hotels being booked I stayed 4 days at the Tulip and it was a very good experience and I wold definitely stay again. I stayed in room 1010 and it was more than adequate. A nice small balcony with a peak of the beach. A good internet connection (cable, not WiFi). The bathroom was dated, but had everything you need and was definitely not cramped. If you have business in City Center and budget is a consideration, this is a very good alternative. Due to some problmes at check-in, I had to move a couple of rooms, but they comped me the internet fee, which was fine. The fridge does not have much in it,, just a couple of cokes, a beer and a couple of waters but there are stores nearby.

It is on Atlantic Ave so directly across from Copa beach, about halfway up. for the adventerous, it is a short walk to Help disco. It has complimentary coffee and the staff is extremely friendly. Be a bit wary about getting a cab, as the doorman will ask you what you are willing to pay. If you don't know the taxi rates, make sure you get a cab that uses the meter.

The staff were all very friendly and accomodating. The fitness room was not up to snuff, but you can run right up copacabana, so that was ok with me. Cab fomr International airport is about 50 Real.
