Great location - only a block from Copacabana beach. It was very clean. The service was good, friendly & helpful. The breakfast was great! The only bad thing is that it was slightly on the expensive side, but Rio isn't a cheap city so you won't do much better. Overall, I'd say it's a great choice!!

Just one block from the beach but without seafront prices. A medium-sized modern hotel with good quality accommodation. I didn't eat in the restaurant at night but the hot and cold buffet breakfast was excellent. All of the staff were friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. I wish I could have stayed longer!

This is a 3-star hotel and it is probably the best 3-star that I ever stayed at!

Rooms are new, basic, clean and comfortable. View is negligible, to the other side of the Sra Copacabana street. Maybe some rooms have better view.

Breakfast is good.

Location is excellent. 2 min away from the Copacabana Palace hotel.

Seemed like most guests were Brazilian or South American, many from tour groups.

If you are looking for good value, this is excellent.

Forget their concierge service etc, this is a 3-star hotel.

Located very near to the beach - just one block to the magnificent sands of Copacabana. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around - for good Italian food try La Trattoria, just round the corner to the left. People were queueing in the rain to get in here. Maxim's by the beach is also very good with generous portions. Or there's Apo & Apirim a couple of blocks away where the buffet food is charged by weight.

The metro is only about 5 minutes walk away and just one stop from Botafogo, for great views of Sugarloaf.

The hotel room was plain but comfortable. Quite a lot of traffic noise at the front.

Staff were helpful and the breakfast was very good and varied. There is no bar though.

As for safety, the metro and the city seemed fine (in the day time) as long as you take the normal precautions. I walked extensively in the centre and along the waterfront and took a number of metro trips without ever feeling even slightly threatened.
Copacabana even more so. I didn't walk around extensively after dark, but I certainly didn't feel it was unsafe to leave the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the front due to the busy road

I have seen many 3* hotels in Rio, and this is by far the nicest cleanest and friendliest of all visited.

Breakfast is very good, staff is amazingly friendly, especially Hugo (a receptionist) speaks excellent English and has only the best advise for your questions and/or problems.

It's 2 minutes away from the beach, surrounded by small shops and food places and only minutes away from the best Churrascaria in Rio (Carretão). If you have eaten there, you don't wanna walk far, it's an all you can eat best meat restaurant :)

All in all, perfect hotel. Very clean, I had a 2x2 meter bed, I was just happy to be here!

I stayed with Windsor Copa Hotel for 3 nights and had a great stay there.

* The location is excellent with just one block away from Copacabana Beach
* The airport transfer shuttle stops right outside this hotel so that you can use Rio Shuttle bus to transfer between this hotel and the airport. If you travel solo, this will save you half of the taxi cost. (Note: if you travel from airport to the hotel, the shuttle bus might not stop right outside the hotel but on a street corner. You should write down the address on a piece of paper, which will help you find the hotel easily. From the location where the bus stops, it is a 5 minute walk at most to the hotel.)
* The hotel is 5-minute walk to a Metro station, where you can go to main attractions in Rio and connect to other buses where Metro does not reach.
* The room is clean and comfortable. However, the single bed is a bit small, which fortunately does not bother me. The bathroom is excellent and the water pressure is just so strong.
* The breakfast is really good and it is one of a few best I ever had.
* The staffs there are all professional, helpful and patient. Most speak good enough English.
* The hotel provides free beach tower to guests and free wifi.

The only drawback with this hotel is that it is a bit far away from nearby grocery store and bank. You are expected to walk around 12 minutes to the nearest Rio Sul grocery store and 15-18 minutes to a nearest Citibank or HSBC.

Overall, I have a great stay with this hotel and will go back again. However, the hotel is pricey and if you are a backpacker traveling on budget, this might not be a choice for you.
