Great Staff, Great Location

For the price and the location, this hotel is great. Staff was very accommodating, helpful, and knowledgeable. Internet in the room was free (which we expected in all of our hotels, but often did not find). Clean room, big comfortable bed, staff helped with recommendations and setting up activities. Right in the heart of Copacabana.

Small and noisy room

The hotel is very bare, not worth what they charge. The location is perfect but you will probably not have a beach view room. My room window was facing a space between the hotel and the next building, with a big air conditioning machine that was very loud. It felt like I was inside an airplane because of the noise. I asked the reception to change my room and they said that they were completely booked, which I think was a lie.

Couple of changes, and this could be a sweet deal

It was my first time at Olinda Othon, and it is in a good location - right on Copacabana beach - convenient short walk to restaurants, and short taxi ride to business district. Room is decent, staff is courteous, and breakfast is slightly better than typical. From a business perspective, if hotels such as this one add two things to their rooms: coffee, and iron (with ironing board). Both are cheap items, but have a significant effect on the quality of stay.

Olinda Othon-Rio/Copacabana

Great location but tiny standard room. The next time, I will opt for a deluxe room. The service, location, and free breakfast were all excellent, though.

Fabulous hotel for the price.

This is my 4th trip to Rio and I have stayed at quite a few hotels. This hotel was great! The location is perfect, the staff is very friendly, and the view of the beach from our room was fantastic. The hotel was clean with beautiful decor. The breakfast was good, but not as good as other hotels I have stayed in (not up to Ipanema standards.) The only thing missing was valet parking. This hotel is very safe and I would highly recommend staying there. I will stay there again the next time I am in Brazil.
