“Rio Hotel”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Hotel is located in Copa Cabana, not on the beach but is reasonably priced and is in the middle of a residential area which appeared to be quite safe. Although as the general guidance goes, nowhere in Brazil should one be wandering on deserted streets especially after 8/9 pm in the evening unless it is a very busy road.

The hotel room was very spacious more like a suite with a separate area with a sofa and table. Very comfortable bed and decent bathroom. Overall considering the location and price paid it is good value for money. The staff is very polite and helpful. In fact I think we should have stayed here instead of Ipanema Plaza where we paid three times the price of this hotel for no particular additional benefit. I would go back again go for sure. The furniture and fittings look quite run down but this was no different at Ipanema Plaza. Breakfast was included but we didnt try it. Wifi was working fine and is free. Some of the rooms have views of Christo Rodentor, so make sure you ask for it.

i spended 5 nights here on my stay in Rio. Rooms were very spacious, good bathroom. Staff is very helpfull, they speak English. Breakfast is good (the restaurant is not that nice), the rooftop is great with a little seaview and fitnessroom and sauna. And Free Wifi in the hotel.
The location is superb, right in the center of Copacabana.
If you want good value for your money, this is a good place to go!

We stood there for 3 nights and got there in the evening without reservation.
The receptionist was nice and gave us a large room on the 10th floor. Unfortunately it was overlooking the road and quite noisy at night but apart from this, we liked it. There was plenty of space, a good quality of toiletries and a well organized minibar.
A swimming pool plus fitness room and sauna were located on the roof of the hotel and the view from there was amazing!
Wi-fi Internet conncection has been a problem throughout our stay, both our laptops had problems in connecting and my husband got quite annoyed at the receptionist who insisted that the net was fine...
Breakfast was included in the night rate and was served in the restaurant on the 1st floor. Good quality of food and great variety for both warm or cold stuff at the buffet. Waiters were very fast and attentive.
This hotel also provided valet parking (garage) and it was very comfortable to drop the car at the valet and get it parked any time!
Considering the incredibly high rates of the hotels on Avenida Atlantica, this hotel offered us a very good compromize, being located only one road away from Copacabana beach and asking for an acceptable price. We would recommend it for sure.

We stayed one night at the Bernidorm Palace and were very satisfied. The hotel rooms are quite big and even though the hotel is not with a view to the sea, you can walk down to Copacabana Beach in less than five minutes. The price of 300 R$ for a double room of this quality is cheap for Rio. The service and rooms were excellent and the restaurant actually makes some quite nice pastels. Having lived in Rio for almost two years, I know when I get good pastels..

We had to book this option during the Carnival. So... The extremellllly outpfdated hotel is 2* with disgusting service. Reception staff, room service, bellmen etc. all of them were so average and never smiley. Our room was a Deluxe, but it absolutely not worth any money. You can listen all conversation around, include staff room from 7am, etc. overpriced, they have own taximen with twicerate. Avoid it.

This hotel is well situated 2 streets down from Copacabana beach (couple minutes walk), Good value for money if you compare to some of the overpriced hotels on the Copacabana beach. Spacious rooms, clean and freindly staff.

The hotel is average but it's difficult to find something better in Rio de Janeiro for its price.

Although it is quite old, the hotel is well maintained. Staff service is kindly - although not above the average. The same you could say about breakfast.

Location is not bad (although quite far from the beach, about 6 blocks) but it's not that safe at night (it is not recommended to walk after 9 p.m.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the street (ending from 3 to 6)
