“Not a good experience. A World Cup No.”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The rooms are old fashioned and in dire need of modernization. After a leak in the toilet, and a rather large spider in the shower in the toilet an an airconditioner that could have been considered noise pollution, we were moved to our second room after a few hours on our first night. The air-conditioners are extremely noisy and it was almost impossible to sleep in the noise. The front desk staff were unfriendly and were only willing to assist if you could speak Spanish or Portuguese. With regard to this, we left the hotel having "lost" an entire set of clothes sent to the next door laundry as the men on the front desk were not willing to assist us by sending someone to collect it while we were on a tour which ran late. We then had to leave the country without the clothes which was an expensive exercise.

The dining room is also very small and when it is full, getting to the food and trying to move between the tables is problematic. The only plus I found for this hotel was the location which was near the famous Copacabana. I would not recommend it to anyone expecting to get a good night's sleep and getting value for money.

Stayed here 6 times now, nice location........but the rooms can do with some maintenance.
It feels like the 1980`s.

Rude staff, wake up calls were forgotten, problems with the check out (with regards to payments covered by my agent) and very poor food when it comes to room service.
The restaurant is only marginally better!

All in all, my verdict: don`t go!

Augusto's is in a good location, handy for sea front and easy to take a bus from there. Our room had very noisy air conditioning and the service lift ground its way up and down 13 floors most of the night.

Room Tip: Stay away from service lift

Just got back from Rio (5th Dec 2013) after an enjoyable one week stay at Augusto's Copacabana Hotel. Excellent room / breakfast / service / location--close to Beach / Shops / Resturants / Church. The Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Captain Rudolfo at the door, Dimas and Gleise at the desk.

There were some positive and negative things on our stay:
Good: the bed was confortable, it was quiet at night, location was close enough to the beach and to main bus stops, food (dinner) was good quality, you can change money at the hotel
Bad: we had to pay for wi-fi (when it was advertised otherwise on their website), breakfast bufet could be improved, communication with the waitress (dinner) was terrible (she couldn't communicate in Spanish or English), rooms were a bit outdated and not very well cleaned, the air conditioning was very noisy.
Overall, for a regular business or holiday trip where don't spend much time on the hotel, it is ok.

The staff were very helpful, fluent in English and concerned. If building work made the place noisy that was not their fault. The only real complaint was a lack of hot water at the beginning and end of my stay.

Room Tip: t the moment rooms on the street are quieter than side facing rooms.

We stayed there for 2 nights. When we entered, we suffered a flash back to the past, sometime between the 80's or beginning of the 90's. I think that "Old fashion" is the correct word to describe both the lobby and rooms. The staff was attentive.
The room's size was ok, as well as the bathroom. We had hot water and an adequate flow of water at the bath-tube. We also did use of the gym, that was well stuffed considering that it belonged to a hotel.
Breakfast was fine. It included some fruits, bread, juice, cheese, tea, and a very heavy coffee.
It is well located, just a few blocks away from the beach, bus stop, supermarkets and some "lanchonetes".
Wifi service had an additional cost, not included in the fare. As far as it is not a cheap hotel, I think it should be free for the guests!
