Stayed here several times when in Rio on business. Once I was lucky enough to get a suite which was amazing, but the standard rooms are pretty much a normal hotel room. Everything was clean and in working order, however I did have a problem getting an Iron to do my business shirts - they wanted me to use the...

We were very happy with this hotel. Stayed for 3 nights and wish it had been longer but we were touring! Check in was no problem and we had a nice large room with fantastic view of the beach. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices and there were lots of great restaurants nearby for dinner. The rooftop bar was...

I had high hopes of this hotel but was so disappointed from the moment I arrived. Check-in was a joke, we queued for nearly an hour to get our room key and nobody seemed to know what they were doing. The room was dated and the pipes and water tanks made a painfully annoying noise all night long. We had...

Stayed at this location from Feb 7th-12. Place was horrible! Carpet was worn and dirty. Towels were coarse, well used and dingy. The exterior of the small refrigerator looked as if it hadn't been cleaned for some time. There was no coffee pot or means to make a hot cup of tea. Hot water via room service was R5.50. We...

It is a hotel that already it has its years. The trouble begins with the excessive delay in the Check in and Check out. The extras such as MINIBAR, RESTAURANT and Wi-Fi are extremely expensive and outside the normal parameters. The quality of care is not good. It was not a good experience.

This rate would be much better in case the room price per night would be in accordance to how old-fashioned the hotel is. The prices are really ridiculous, you find better around for the same price. The facilities need a general visual upgrade. The breakfast is reasonable and the staff support is good.

Stayed there with our family of 5 last year. We did a lot of research and thought that the location was one of the best and the price was all right. We knew the Otton Palace used to be one of the best hotels in Rio's earlier days, but there is so much competition now from fancier and newer hotels...

Stayed for 4 nights late January 2017. Great location right on the beach front at Copacabana, a perfect location. Accommodation was good with 3 people in our room in two double beds.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
