I traveled solo to Rio De Janeiro and stayed at the Windsor Copa Hotel. They had at least one Front Desk worker who spoke English. The entire staff was very friendly and always greeting you whether you understood or not...so you smile and nod your head. The single room I had was a view of balconies among people who live there. This didn't bother me because the views are out of this realm and I didn't care about paying for an Ocean View. The room was very tidy, neat and clean and I thought the beds slept well. I like the fact that you could put your things in a safe. The internet is free and was a good enough speed. I didn't have any problems with that. This was my first time coming here...the only thing I did not like was when you first come out of customs and you are heading to the outside for a taxi. There are 4 windows of soliciting hustlers of Brazilian women who want you to use the BLUE or RED taxi service. (So this taxi stand area is inside) Stay away from these. They show you the 109 price to take you to Copacabana but it is rigged. They beat me out of $40 extra real when coming back I payed 60 real. The only thing about the yellow taxi driver who charged me 60 real heading back to the airport; was he was driving so damn slow as to make sure he was going to get his 60 real. He drove like we were towing dynamite and I almost told him put the damn pedal to the medal but he wouldn't have understood. I will definitely stay at Windsor Copa as they are only a couple of blocks from the beach and they will provide you with beach towels. When I checked out that morning...they were happy to hold my bags until I came back before heading to the airport.
