Our stay at Windsor California was great . We got there Monday morning and they were super busy cuz Rock in Rio just ended night before . We were told at first we would have to wait until 2pm for our room , but thankfully Tiago from front desk came through and we got a room right the way . I recommend getting the daily breakfast when you book , we didn’t and we ended up having breakfast at the hotel everyday anyways and I think would be little cheaper if was included on our reservation , food is great and it’s worth it . Every employee is attentive and helpful , and of course Copacabana is beautiful . Please don’t skip this neighborhood just cuz what people say , if you are careful and mindful you will be ok . There’s police presence everywhere . The location is perfect , there’s restaurants everywhere for every taste , farmácias , gyms , grocery stores … we will definitely be back

We loved our stay at the windsor california. It was located in a very safe area, and had great access links to all of the tourist hotspots. The staff were amazing and very friendly, especially Jonaton and Leonard. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms were very clean. Rooftop pool/view was amazing.

Excellent property, service, & view. However, there was a deposit of $180 usd when we arrived, guests aren’t allowed up, and breakfast wasn’t included. The staff was very friendly & professional.
