The hotel has a wonderful location, right in the middle of Copacabana Beach. They have different System for energy charge and do not have enough adapters for everyone which represents a problem with electronic devices.

Easy access to Copacabana Beach and great view!Posted Aug 16, 2014
Rio Othon Palace is a beautiful location and situated directly across Copacabana beach. Staff was very friendly and the concierge was always ready to provide excellent suggestions on locations to go in the city. Our room was situated on the side of the hotel with a great view of the beach. Breakfast included with many options. The rooms were clean, but the beds weren't extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rio Othon Palace...spacious rooms and great views!Posted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: Room with the balcony overlooking the eastside of Copacabana beach and Sugarloaf mountain. Spacious lobby, free wifi in the lobby.
Cons: Unusual and unexpected but first few nights were chilly end of July. Heaters were not available but extra blankets did the trick.
Location: Prime location, right opposite Copacabana beach, Ipanema beach was a 15minute walk away, shops and places to eat all within walking distance.
Had a fabulous time in Rio, the hotel location was excellent, right opposite the beach. Each morning we would watch the sunrise over Sugarloaf mountain from our balcony! Each night sleep to the sound of the majestic waves of the ocean. Breakfast was substantial, hotel staff were excellent, room was clean and shower was powerful. Cannot fault this hotel one bit.

Great HotelPosted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: Location, beach views, rooftop pool and bar, quality of service.
Cons: Breakfast (which is included in the room price) is uninspired and a bit hectic.
Location: Exceptional location with excellent access to the beach and major sights.
Excellent hotel in a great location with small, but nice, rooftop pool, bar, and restaurant. Best value on Copacabana beach. Friendly, helpful staff, willing to go the extra mile--e.g., suggest and book a table for dinner, arrange a car for a night out, or extend check out time by several hours. I have stayed in many places on the beach (Riviera, etc.) in Europe, and Brazilian hospitality at this hotel rivals or exceeds those. Much recommended.

Great HotelPosted Jul 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Location is amazing. Service great. Rooms a bit outdated compared to all the other things the hotel has to offer. Overall, I will definitely stay there again.

Great place, bad service and hotel is in ruins!Posted Jul 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
Poor maintience of hotel, overall staff was fairly friendly but check in took nearly an hour and chock out was not much different. Good location but for the price, look elsewhere!

Excellent stayPosted Jun 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great hotel! Excellent location with view overlooking copacabana. It's a bit pricey and the hotels are 1970-80s style but have all the requirements. Excellent breakfast and hotel service.
