I loved this hotel. The staff was wonderful and the food excellent. Clean, considerate, comfortable. The only small thing is it's a cab ride away from the beaches of Rio, but for the price difference, it's worth it. Would recommend this hotel highly.
“good commercial hotel that can also handle tourists”
I have stayed at the Florida several times over the years. It is primarily a commercial/small meeting/small convention hotel, fine for non-beach tourists (it is near the Flamengo beach). Also near Metro, midway between Center and Copacabana. Near the quiet Catete Palace museum cultural center and park, which is nice for toddlers. Good breakfast, quiet rooftop bar and pool.
“Affordable hotel in convenient location”
The Windsor Florida hotel had attractive public spaces, plain but clean and comfortable rooms, a splendid breakfast buffet, and responsive staff. Though it is some distance from Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, it is within a half of a block of the main metro line, which ends a couple of blocks from Ipamena Beach. On the edge of the Flamengo district, the hotel is closer than the main beaches to a number of other city sites and a walkable distance from Flamengo Park and nice beach area.
This hotel was fabulous! The room was clean and perfect for us, the staff was nice, and the pool/bar area was awesome! If you leave the hotel, and go left there are a lot of stores, food, etc. Flamengo is a great area to stay in if you like it to be less touristy. It's a bit pricey to take a taxi to Ipanema every day, but the hotel was a lot nicer than most by the beach. The contintental breakfast offered here is out of this world...can't get any better!! Book through expedia, it is cheaper than going through the hotel!
“Nice hotel, I would definitely recommend it”
Nice hotel, nice people, good service, good breakfast, good menu and good location close to Flamingo beach.
“Great base location for a short visit”
We were only there for 2 nights at the beginning of our South America tour. It's definitely more of a business hotel, but the staff was extremely helpful with any questions. There is a Metro Station right around the corner, plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood and the central location makes it easy to get to the beaches or center.
“It was alright..”
only bad thing was they give you only one key for two people...
“Good location, only 10-15 min from: Sugar Loaf, Corcovado (Christ), Copacabana, downtown”
This is a business-focused hotel close to downtown but still very convenient to the maor tourist spots in Rio. It's a 3 minute walk to the coastal boulevard (crossing it you get to Flamengo Beach). The restaurant's breakfast buffet is varied and has good quality food. I heard from a local friend that the "feijoada" they serve on Friday afternoons is very fresh, tasty and agood value (closes at 4pm so I just missed it). I also stayed at the Windsor Palace in the heart of Copacabana, 1 short block from the coastal highway -- that hotel was also a good experience.
“very old hotel and not well maintained”
the hotel is very old. couldn't imagine that it is 3 star. the aircondition is super noisy. the location is ok.
“Convenient to the Metro”
Our stay was comfortable. The room was adequate in size and comfort. The bathroom was small . The staff was very helpful and very cordial. The stay included breakfast. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of food. There were quite a few families staying at the hotel so it appears to be kid friendly. As we were checking out, a youth conference was arriving so I'd probably inquire if any large groups were staying at the same time. They were quite noisy. The hotel is very convenient to the Metro. The Catete Station is literally around the corner.There was shopping and restaurants all within a very short walk.
