Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Stayed for 4 days from 8 March, and had a wonderful experience.
Hotel staff excellent couldn't be more helpful with great advice and tips
It is located close to Cococabana beach and we were allocated a room on the 14th floor with a view of the beach, we also had a small balcony. Bedroom very comfortable with good shower facilities and even a fridge. Lift very slow. Understand wifi is free but didn't use.
Breakfast room lovely and food itself super with so many choices. Understand you can eat there at night but didn't chose to do so. Great rooftop pool, gym and bar with super views over Rio
Bonus was the hotel arranged and paid for our transfer by coach back to the airport. Know that this is regularly 20 reals per person. Would certainly recommend.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms have been refurbished. Upper floor rooms many have a view of the beach.

Stayed here for four nights in February
Nice Hotel with friendly staff. Room on the twelfth floor was a good size, comfortable and with a great shower. Rooms are looking a little tired and could do with updating but that did not spoil anything. By far the best breakfast of any of the Hotels we stayed at in Brazil and Argentina.
Did appear to be in permanent competition with Hotel staff more than guests when getting the lift. Wifi was intermittent.
Location is good, 100 metres from Copacabana Beach with a metro station about 300 metres away. Would stay here again.
Incidentally I much preferred Copacabana to Ipanema.
Ipanema is very touristy, But Copacabana is more real Rio with the beach appearing far less littered than Ipanema.

The staff really made this place. They were most helpful and their suggested trips were better value than those offered by the tour companies. It is near the beach and shopping areas. Just be careful when going out at night.

I stayed @ the Windsor Palace for 6 days. Breakfast I thought was great, specially the assorted breads. The room was small (on the 2nd floor), reminded me of a Hotel Ibis, a little bit bigger.
Rooms on top floors are bigger. Location was ok, although I'd rather have stayed in Ipanema or Leblon beaches.
Tip: Taxi drivers didn't know the address (it's a small street), which made our fares more costly. Carry the directions of a nearby avenue intersection, so its easier for them.

Room Tip: higher uo, rooms are bigger, with balconies.

Hotel is in need of some re-decorating but it was a nice stay. Hotel severed it's purpose. Great location. Service was good. Most of the Staff spoke English. Breakfast in the mornings were good. Eggs, toast, cereals, pastries, etc. The hotel has a fantastic roof top terrece with a very nice view of the Copacabana, very small but nice. I would stay here again.

Stayed for 6 nights in January 2013. Very well located 1 block from Copacabana Beach and 3-4 blocks from the Metro which will take to you Ipanema or the City. Hotel is a bit old, but very good service at reception to book day trips and general assistance. Breakfast is also very good.

This Hotel is good and very convinient if you want to be by Copacabana area. It's one block away from the beach and blocks from easy access to the busses and metro station. I felt very comfortable walking around the area. Hotel staff at reception desk were very nice and helpful.
Breakfast was good, but the servers were a little rude. The Pool was out of service so we had to walk over to the other Windsor Hotel by the beach to use its pool. Over all this Hotel is very good.
