The location is very central and two blocks from the beach. The rooms themselves are not very luxurious and could use some serious updating, but then it would probably be much more expensive like the other hotels. People are nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet is very complete.

This hotel is very close to Copacabana Beach and also to many good restaurants. The reception staff were very helpful as regards information on attractions and how to get to them. They do offer tours, but to be quite honest it is easy and cheap to get round Rio using taxis and the main attractions do not need a guide....

Stayed here for three nights on business. Previously stayed at the hotels on the front facing the beach eg Othon Palace, Windsor Atlantica etc , all about another $50 per night, but the Windsor Palace is very definitely a big step down in overall quality. To be fair, it's a good location -only 2 mins from the beach and 10...

Stayed here at the end of our tour of South America. We arrived on a Saturday and were allocated a room on the 13th floor which had a slight view of the beach. The room was spacious and clean if a little faded. Had trouble opening and closing the balcony door but eventually managed it. Nice walk in shower. Really...

Don't stay in this hotel if you want peace. The air conditioning, poor sealant around the patio doors and the outside noise all contribute to a cacophony of disturbance. Location great for the beach and buses though and staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast one of the best we had on our tour if South America.

Stayed during the Easter week. I'd chosen this hotel because of the ranking and reviews it had on Tripadvisor, and was not disappointed, although it was the only place I liked about Rio. Excellent service, friendly staff, helped us with everything (places, security tips, etc.) . You may ask them for a city tour which includes visiting Christ Redeemer and...

Ideal location to start from and within walking distance of the beach, the staff were helpful and good knowledge of the area. Rooms kept clean and all you could wish for at breakfast, amazing variety and something...

I stayed at this hotel from March 22nd until the 26th 2013. Good location! everything within walking distance, tons of bars and restaurants around, the bus stop to the different sites is just a block or 2 away. Nice staff specially Danielle and the guys at the door which were always trying to help with information about where to go!...

Picked the Windsor based on other reviews, First impression is a lovely small, well located hotel. This was perfect until you realize there is a major renovation going on. They are working from top down, on multiple floors, the noise which started at 7:30 AM continued daily, (even after we complained) until 7PM at night. Drilling, sledge hammers, workers smoking...

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.
