Nice Hotel, Nice Location

Stayed there for 3 nights for a business conference. Clean hotel, good food, good service. The Italian restaurant in the hotel is one of the best in all of Rio, so very convenient to eat there. Great view of the entire Copacabana beach and curved strip. Had a jog everyday on the beach followed by some fresh coconut water. Also had a relaxing massage which was very relaxing and professional. The local mall is a 10 minute walk. There are grocery stores and other restaurants around the corner. I would stay there again.

A great option on Copacabana Beach

I picked this hotel based on promotion and customer reviews. Overall, very pleasant experience. The room was larger than expected, the bathroom was very nice, and the bed was comfortable as well. Wifi was only sporadically functional, but connection through ethernet cable was alright. TV programs were limited to non-HD channels, and there were very few English programs in comparison to the hotel that we stay in Sao Paulo. Then again, why watch TV when the Copacabana beach is right in front of the hotel? Hotel provided towels and beach umbrellas, while there was no designated beach areas for the hotel. In general, the beach area in front of the hotel was more family oriented.

There is an Italian Restaurant call D'Amici right behind the hotel, and they serve pretty authentic Italian food. For a change of scenery, hop on a cab to experience Ipanema Beach on the other side of the town that are filled with younger crowd.

Well located Hotel

Very good location, unfortunately some of the staff at the lobby were not as nice as you would expect. Breakfast buffet was very nice and the view from the rooms and the top floor pool is beautiful.

Excellent Quality for Value

We just finished a weekend in Rio at the Windsor Atlantica, and I must say it was by far the best quality for value that I think we could have found in the City. It is right on Copacabana beach, which is a great location. Many Brazilians tend to go to Ipanema or Leblon these days, but it is a quick cab ride there or about a 45 minute walk along the beach if you prefer that. And much, much less expensive than staying anywhere in Ipanema or Leblon. The hotel amenities are fantastic and the rooms are in top condition; the hotel seems as though it was renovated quite recently. Didn't get a chance to go to the pool or rooftop bar (they close early, FYI) but they look like they would be beautiful. I truly don't think we could have done any better for a weekend in Rio!

Good value

Good value for a triple room. Staff wasn't that helpful. Reception left me on the phone for several minutes and I had to go downstairs to ask for the additional bed and the additional towel and amenities, which were supposed to be ready, since we made the check in several hours earlier. Still, a good option in Rio, a city well known for its outrageous hotel prices.
