Good and friendly staff. Good breakfast and good service. The hotel should have more armchairs on the beach.

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.

Frühstück im 30. Stock viel angenehmener als im 3. Stock und geschmacklich gut. Allerding kein Gemüse aber dafür Brasilianisches Obst. Sehr leckere Mini Kokos Plunder!! Perfekte Lage auch Fußnähe nach Ipanema. Meer vor der Haustür allerdings durch zwei 3Spurige Strassen getrennt! Es gibt aber auch kein anderes Hotel dass direkt am Strand ist! Schöner Blick vom Pool! Etwas abgenutztes Hotel und etwas älter aber trotzdem Komfortabel. Preisleistung Stimmt hier! Für deutsche Verhältnisse eher ein 4Sterne Hotel...

Wir sind zufrieden mit dem Hotel. Als Wir in Flughafen Rio angekommen sind, hat kein Taxi-Fahrer uns abgeholt. Wir haben ebooker 76 € für die Taxi-Transfer schon bezahlt.. Wir haben eine Taxi in Flughafen genommen mit 20 € hin und 11 € zurück (feste Preis, pro Wagen max. 4 Personen).
