Lousy Internet

The hotel is located right on the Copacabana Beach, within walking distance to the subway station. The hotel provides beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella. The hotel is a 30 floor building, has lots of guest rooms. So be prepared for a crowed breakfast. The breakfast is free but lack of verities. But it’s free buffet. What I don’t like the hotel is its internet. It’s not free, fine, I’ll pay for RB30 for one day connection. But it’s not for one room, it’s RB30 for one device. In another word, if you have 2 devices, you have to switch between them. OK. I can tolerant that. But what’s not acceptable is the internet speed is so bad, it hardly functions. There is a free internet down the lobby, the speed is bad too. If you want to send good pictures to your friends after a day on the beach, this is not the hotel you want to stay. I also don’t like the fact that I spent extra bucks on an “ocean view, with balcony” room and only found that it’s a side view of the ocean and the balcony is so small that a bench cannot even fit there. I asked the door man for a taxi from the hotel to the Corcovado, he told me it would be a prepaid flat fee of RB50. I took a taxi on the street with meter on, it only cost me RB22.70.

Great Copacabana Vacay

This hotel was great for the price. Thr location was great & the rooms were a nice size & clean. The best part was having a little balcony with a view of the ocean. The breakfast was ok - everything a standard Brazillian breakfast includes like cheeses, meats, pastries & fruit. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is in a superb location facing the ocean. We had a room with 2 double beds with frontal ocean view. Some very small ants in the room though bed was clean. Check-in time can be made faster if they post the form that needs to be filled in for each guest online. Otherwise we had a wonderful time.

Internet Nightmare

The internet in this hotel barely worked. Internet connections were difficult to establish and frequently disappeared. The internet was unbearably slow when it was working. There was an enormous wait to check out of the hotel.

Scary and Uncomfortable Stay

Checking in and out took at least an hour due to hotel staff not properly organized. Also, for rooms with balconies, the slider doors had no latches at all. Very unsafe!!

Ocean view better than ocean front

We were placed in a ocean front room with a spectacular view but the most horrible furnishings. We asked for a room change and though the room was partial view the furnishing and bathroom was up dated .

Great Location. Needs a friendlier staff.

Most of our experience at the Othon was really quite wonderful. The location was amazing, the view from our room was amazing, the bar staff at the roof top pool were amazing, but the staff at the concierge, front desk and bell service left a lot to be desired. The concierge could not be bothered with helping us plan our day trips, no info, no maps and we would be put aside if a tour group leader came to him. We tried to get taxis and were led to their private black car transportation. It was great to see the Christo. It really did turn out to be a bargain, but to charge us R$150 to go to Sugar loaf was outrageous. We took a regular cab and it was R$30 round trip. Its really close and transportation is easy. We used them again to go the airport. We agreed on a price with the hotel staff and driver to make one stop and go to the airport. We know what was discussed because a member of our party speaks fluent Portuguese and was part of the discussion with both the hotel staff and the driver. When we arrived at the airport the driver tried to charge us an additional R$50. That is an additional $25USD. Outrageous. We felt as if this service was just trying to extort money from tourists, above what was fare prices. A regular taxi to the airport is R$60 and we were already paying R$ 100 for the extra stop and ease of their highly recommended (pushed) cars. Just be wary, and negotiate all payments with all parties before agreeing to anything. Know your area, because their service isn't really set up to help you.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The beach is a great experience. A chop of Brahma, Mate or a Caiperinia (sp) on the beach is an amazing experience.
