Miguel at Windsor Plaza Hotel in Rio

What can I say! I stayed at this hotel at least 10 times. The staff is very nice and pleasant and the Buffet Breakfast is incredible. It is close enough to Copacabana beach and there is plenty of choices for bars and restaurants. Cheers!

Great location, staff & a pretty good hotel

Stayed during the World Cup so price was extortionate but ignoring that, the hotel was good and in a great location, although without the view of the Copacabana. The night we stayed was the night of Brazil's 1-7 humiliation to Germany when afterwards the heavens opened, flooding the Avenida Atlantica so everyone was traipsing through the hotel lobby soaked to the skin yet the staff remained gracious and helpful as they did their best to keep up with our mess. Incredible.

Don't go to Rio during the World Cup or Olympics unless money means nothing to you or you have a friend who can put you up.

Location, Location & a decent hotel

Stayed the night of Brazil's worst ever football humiliation when God made his view of the team's performance as clear as possible by opening the heavens and all-but flooding the Copacobana. Despite that though, the hotel staff remained courteous and helpful, not raising any concerns at all at my wringing my clothes out, outside the hotel and then paddling through the lobby to my room still soaking wet during their very darkest hour. The location is perfect during the day. albeit without the view enjoyed by the Ocean front hotels but, be warned, at night, it seems to be in the heart of the Rio Red light district. On the whole a pretty great hotel even if the price we paid was massively inflated (I hope) because of World cup demand for rooms.

Absolute honesty is worth I'm being very objective no personal feelings.

If you're from the USA you see airport shuttle in a hotel listing you think oh they have a shuttle. In this hotel You must reserve a pick up according to the time you arrive. I didn't think I had to because the website does not specify it. Make sure you reserve it well in advance and the first one is at 8:00 am. So if your flight is early.... Well you get the point. Also if you book it book the return to airport leg as well. But the blue bus works very well too. Other than that the breakfast was way better than I've ever gotten in a hotel in the US for the same price. The staff was extremely helpful and helped with information of things to do there. So I'd highly recommend this location for anyone who's in Rio for fun or business.

Just confirmed all I knew from other reviews

Negatives: A bit pricey. Prostitution around the block, but not a problem. Very noisy, a problem. Positives: -Good rooms (size could look small to Americans, but is in tune with other hotels I've been in Brazil), -I found that the staff was friendly, -Good breakfast, it gave me enough boost until dinner. -Internet connection is decent (10th floor). -Terrific location for access to beach and transportation.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Warning: if you venture into the nearby Cervantes restaurant, beware that dishes are thought for 2+ people. As far as I could read, this is not explicit in the menu. In any case, honest waiters should realize that an -obviously- foreign guy dining by himself but ordering food for two must be missing something. Alas, they quietly follow along knowing that half of the portion is bound to end in the trash.

Business trip

I have stayed at the Windsor Plaza before. I chose to stay here again because of its location, cleanliness and good food. Although the Front Desk personnel is not the most friendly in the world, I let it slide because I get everything else that I need in my short stay.
