local call for 30 min costs me over $300

Even after I complained that nowhere in the room or hotel do they speak of the extortion local phone rates. This is a call from my room to a local number in Rio. After complaining to the Manager who agreed it was not posted anywhere they gave me 20% off. I will never go back to this hotel again. BP

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.

Rio Othon Review (October 2010)

The location is great on Copacabana Beach, and I stayed there many times before, but on this last trip, I ran into a very disturbing problem. A friend came to visit and valeted the car. We called ahead to pick it up but when we did, there was a parking ticket. The valet parked it on the sidewalk in front of the hotel. When we raised the issue to the hotel manager, he admitted that it was their fault but they are refusing to take responsibility. When we pursued the matter further, they referred us to their lawyer. Now my friend either has to accept the driving points (penalty) or take the matter to court. I feel terrible. A bigger concern for anyone reading this review is that it appears this particular hotel won't take responsibility for their mistakes, so if you stay there, you better hope that everything is perfect. If a mistake of theirs causes a problem for you, don't expect them to take action to fix it. They will run to their lawyers.

Unfortunate experience

Was robbed of a purse at lunch time. A transvestite posing as a woman needing help while "her" accomplices grabbed the purse and ran away. Had security hold "her" until the police came to arrest "her". Over 20 stolen credit cards were found on her person, but the other guys made off with the purse containing $1,500. Hotel staff advised changing hotels or leaving the country, so an early departure was arranged at a cost of $250 (Continental Air Lines). Left on Saturday August 7th instead of Thursday August 12th as planned.

Ruined our honeymoon

Rented the hotel for the 4 stars I saw here. Indeed, the lobby looks to be 4 stars. In reality, the rooms of this flea-bag roach motel should be less than one. If this hotel was in the US, it would be condemned. We took this room for our honeymoon. My new wife started crying once we saw the condition. We tried unsuccessfully to rebook. Total and complete disappointment.

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!!
