According to US standards, this hotel can not be more than a 2-star. The hotel is old and recently changed to Golden Tulip (previously known as the Luxor Continental). I booked a standard room. The room was clean but not to my satisfaction. Perhaps due to the fact that the public areas of my floor were not clean and there...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Golden Tulip Continental. The staff was very nice and spoke several languages. My room was not very big but it was cosy and comfortable. It was extremely clean. The small mini-bar was nice to keep cold drinks. The breakfast buffet was excellent: both very varied and of good quality. There is a small...

I have stayed at the Continental (now Golden Tulip) 5 times in the last 3 years. I used to stay at the Le Meridien, but after it shut down for renovations I switched here and never went back. It is on the Leme end of Copacabana, so it is a bit of a walk up to Ipanema (maybe 30 minutes...

Stayed here with a group of friends during Carnival 2008 (as I see another reviewer also did!). I agree with all the positive things - great location, adequate sized rooms, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. The pool and cafe/bar on the roof were great, with spectacular views. Although the pool wasn't huge, I have seen much smaller, and would...

I stayed at the Luxor Continental for 8 nights during carnival 2008. First, the positives: The location is great. It is near the beach without being so close that guests have to deal with the traffic on the street directly adjacent to the beach. The neighborhood is decidedly residential, with the post office a few doors down, lots of supermarkets,...

Spent 8 nights here and had a good experience. Good clean rooms, friendly staff with good facilities. Buffet at the restaurant only costs about £10.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Describing Golden Tulip Rio Leme as one of the most traditional hotels in Rio de Janeiro would be the least: the hotel occupies one of the most iconic buildings in the city, just one block from Leme beach. It´s a unique history: declared a historical heritage of the city, which today is represented by the architectural composition of the hotel, the reception is decorated with designs carved on the wall. By combining historical preservation with comfort, elegance and sophistication, the Golden Tulip Rio Leme is considered one of the most exclusive hotels in Rio de Janeiro. Staying here is a unique experience, because the excellent service and hotel structure; the rooms and social areas was recently reformed and now the Golden Tulip Rio Leme offers versatile options of lodging. The location is a strong point: the hotel occupies a prime space in the neighborhood of Leme, famous for quiet atmosphere of common neighborhood, but a few meters from Copacabana beach and the center of Rio de Janeiro. No doubt, a great option for the business audience that wants to be close to work and enjoy the atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro Rio de Janeiro. ... more   less
