Just what you needPosted May 17, 2015
Pros: Location, location, and Price
Cons: I bit nicer of a breakfast would be great.
Compared to the other more expensive options in Rio, this hotel fit our budget, and was pleasing. Nothing fancy, but fine enough.

Windsor CopaPosted May 10, 2015
Pros: Staff attentive if approached. Front desk good english speaking. Cabs hailed. Great powerful showers! Great breakfast
Cons: Door staff need more customer friendly training...smile and notice us all the time not only when we need our bags carried or a cab.
Location: Palace Hotel, central Copacabana, hit and miss mid tier restaurants, few shops
Fine choice for a hotel if you do not need or wish to pay the higher prices for the beach strip and view hotels. Good Copacabana central location and around the corner front the famous Palace Hotel. Hotel itself has higher end entry and lobby entrance ambiance and the restaurant has a good breakfast..worth the little extra for breakfast included. No views to speak of. No roof top pool but no time to use on my week stay anyway. Smalll workout area with a multipurpose matinge, two bikes, two ellipticals and two walking machines. We stayed 3 nights here and 3 nights in Ipanema. The latter is more tourist and higher end local oriented with many more restaurants and shops (And All Together!) while Copacabana is more real city-like with restaurants and bars are more off and on locationally. I will return to Ipanema personally next time with a vacation mindset if my stay is limited. And pay a bit more for the beach hotel and views.

Ubicación perfecta, comunicación 10Posted Apr 27, 2015
Nos quedamos 5 noches. Un hotel q no se echan de menos ninguna estrella. Desayuno genial. Calidad precio inmejorable en todo. Personal, limpieza. Amables y simpaticos como todos en Brasil. Wifi funciona genial en todo el hotel caja fuerte genial.Comunicado con paradas de autobús para cualquier sitio en puerta del hotel. Río lo vimos por nuestra cuenta en autobús 3,40reales con un mapa en mano y haciendo el plan según tiempo que hace. No aconsejo tur organizado ya que sale caro y precipitado y si lo pagas y te toca niebla no se ve nada desde ningún sitio. No nos han robado. Hay mucha gente que avisa, pero hay q ir con. Cuidado no llevar mucho dinero. Es un sitio de maravilla...

Nice and Clean HotelPosted Apr 22, 2015
Hotel is nice and clean. Bathroom is a decent size and comes with a big shower room, but the room itself is pretty small, barely enough room space for luggages. Hotel is 2-3 blocks from the beach, taxis and buses are everywhere, a few restaurants and a super market is close by. There's a Premier blue shuttle bus that takes you from and to the airport for around 20 real and taxi will cost around 70 - 80 real. I would recommend this hotel to people that are looking for a clean and decent hotel to stay, but nothing high class or fancy.

Fernando at reception exceeded my expectations!Posted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: The breakfast option (Gives you energy for the start of the day) The Location (saves money) Clean, STAFF
Cons: I'm a big fan of Apple juice at breakfast, so probably offer a choice of having that among your big selection of drinks (ha ha)
Location: Best of both worlds, 40 seconds walk to the beach and next to restaurants and shops, convenient for safety at night, rather than on the actual beach
I was tied between THIS hotel which was 1 block (40 seconds walk from the beach) and another one directly opposite the beach. After doing my research for 'VALUE FOR MONEY' i decided this one was best. A standard room on a beach front hotel doesn't actually give you a beach view, you're looking at the back of another building unless you want to upgrade. i was happy to save £200 minimum for this hotel 40 seconds away. (and i'm glad i did it) Check-in went very well, i arrived at 8-9 pm and was greeted by a man named Fernando, (little did i know this man was going to make my trip totally EPIC!) He was very professional and all staff were very polite! I was Upgraded for free (which was very much appreciated). Fernando worked a late shift. He gave me advice of places to visit and how to get there by bus and where the bus stops would be. This worked to my benefit as i didn't want to spend money on taxi fares for my whole trip. As a solo traveler i like to experience life in a country the same way the locals do, rather than a typical tourist. His instructions were very accurate which also helped me because i don't speak Portuguese. At the end of every adventure (coming back to the hotel) Fernando would be at reception genuinely interested in how my days was, and he then gave me more advice for my trip for the following morning. I found out that all the things he helped me do independently would have cost me £100's with a tour agency. I was allowed a late check-out (Great!)

High quality 3 star hotelPosted Apr 18, 2015
Pros: The friendliness of the staff. The FOOD!! Breakfast was excellent. The evening dinner was exceptional and presented and served very professionally.
Cons: provision of a small bar area where we could have a drink before retiring to bed.
Location: One block from the beach. Nearby access to good restaurants. Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer are a must to visit.
We were welcomed by the door staff and reception where our registration was quick and easy. We were shown to a standard room which was small. As it was only on the second floor, it was overshadowed by the surrounding buildings. I found it a bit claustrophobic. In hindsight, I should have asked for a higher floor or an upgrade to a superior room. The aircon worked quite well and was quiet. The reception staff were always extremely helpful and answered our queries, especially to help with language difficulties. The standard of catering was excellent both at breakfast and evening dinner. Good value for money in a good area only one block from Cocacabana beach.

Cuenta con lo necesario para hospedarse en Rio. Personal de 10. Gym muy pobre. Habitación algo pequeña. Muy buena ubicación. Le doy un 8 en general.

Lovely small hotel on Nosa Senora de Copacabana StPosted Apr 3, 2015
Pros: Staff, room, location.
Hotel and staff were gracious and comfortable. Great breakfast buffet and helpful staff, willing to communicate in several languages. Located on Nossa Senora de Copacabana, it is one short block from Copacabana beach and its parade of (mostly) happy humanity. Even the hawkers are polite and cheerful. The hotel offers seconded tours and perhaps the tour company they use is the only game in town, but I doubt it. One of the weaker tours I've taken anywhere in the world. The guides had to be prodded to even introduce themselves, let alone provide information about what we were seeing out the window. No opportunities to stop and take pictures along the way to the 'destination' or even slowdowns to allow for pictures out the bus windows - drivers seemed determined to Not Accommodate. Rio's spectacular scenery compensated, but I'd recommend travellers shop around for better tours, with running commentary, friendly guides and drivers less inclined to see how many tourists they can topple out of their seats (no seatbelts provided) on the switchback roads leading to the main attractions. Rio deserves better and so do the tourists who flock there. Susan McCrae
