Amazing Holiday in Rio

The location of the hotel was perfect, rigth in the middle of all Copacabana, facing the Ocean. Short walk away from Ipanema and other beaches in Rio. The staff were very helpful and friendly, from our first day to the day we left. We had a room on the 27th Floor facing Sugar Loaf Mountain, which was amazing. The room service was very good and efficient. The security was excellent. The hotel offers excursions, but should you wish to use the local transport system for you excursions, they were very helpful. The concierge spoke good english and provided us with any information we needed, for shoping, public transport, nightlife etc. We would definately stay in this hotel again, and would highly recommend it.

Nit-picking aside, I couldn't be happier.

Rio Othon Palace is probably the tallest hotel along Copacabana beach, its 30 floors only equalled by the Windsor toward the opposite Northern end. So if you pay for the premium sea view, then you will get one of the best on beach. I was on floor 23 and couldn't have been much happier with the view. Especially as the balcony windows open fully to allow unrestricted viewing. (Balcony is a generous term - there is a shelf with waist high railing with just enough room to stand on.) Breakfast was included, and the buffet is a generous mixture of drinks, fruits, breads, cereals, and hot food including scrambled eggs, potatos, tomatos, frankfurters or bacon. Excellent breakfast and open from 6am. The rooftop pool, and gyms are small and "well used". Staff were polite but the desk clerks were the only ones with any English, and seemed overworked and a bit stressed. Beach access and towel service is minimal, mentioning a tunnel - but there is no tunnel under the road to the beach lockers; There is just a basement accessed via a side door with a foot shower, so you don't drag sand through the hotel foyer; And you have to cross a fairly busy road to get to the beach. The hotels in Rio were mostly all built 20 years ago or more, so the Rio Othon Palace rooms are a little dated but who is judging the decor with a beach view like that? On the plus side there is a fridge/minibar (where I kept drinks bought from local supermarkets at a much cheaper price), a safe to store valuables, and a large shower. On the down side, I saw 4 or 5 small ants crawling around in the bathroom, but nothing I was too worried about; Also, the toilet water valve seemed to need manually adjusting every time I flushed - the flow seemed to veer rapidly between the kind of glacial drip that forms stalagtites, and a tsunami of watery thunder that makes you think a Kraken is about to burst forth from the bowl. The cheapest way to travel larger distances to Flamengo, or Centro, etc. is to get the Metro from Cantagalo which is a few blocks behind the hotel - only 5 or 10 minutes walk. Otherwise the yellow metered taxis are pretty reasonable and reliable.

Agréable séjour à Copacabana

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet hôtel : très bien situé, chambre propre et très grande avec vue sur la plage, petit déjeuner buffet très bon, personnel à l'écoute des clients. Points négatifs : wifi seulement au niveau de la réception et pas toujours optimal, longue attente pour les sièges de plage et parasol nous contraignant à en prendre des payants à un stand de la plage.

Super séjour en famille

Très bon hôtel. Bien placé sur la plage de copacabana. Chambre donnant une une vue à coupé le souffle sur la plage de copacabana. Très propre et employés très accueillants. Petit déjeuner copieux avec beaucoup de choix et très bon. Le seul défaut est l'attente pour prendre un ascenseur! Et aussi piscine de moyenne taille.

Parasta uutenavuotena

Sijainti on ihan loistavamutta huoneet ovat kuluneet ja vanhanaikaiset. Meillä oli excecutive sviitti, mutta saapuessamme huoneeseen, oli 2 lamppua rikki, tvn kaukosäädin rikki ja yksi tuoli oli myös rikki. Palvelu oli kuitenkin hyvää ja puutteet korjattiin.

Ausgezeichnetes Hotel

Die Lage des Hotels und die Aussicht aufs Meer ist einmalig. Ebenso das Frühstücksbüffet. Die Mitarbeiter waren alle Englisch-sprechend und sehr zuvorkommend. Wir werden dort wieder übernachten. Leider bekam ich von ebookers trotz mehrmaliger email-Anfragen keine weiteren Infos über das Hotel.
