Golden Tulip Rio Copacabana

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Traveled for a family reunion. The hotel was close to the tourist spots and breakfast was included with many options.

Honestly you can tell the hotel has seen better days. That being said the staff was great and very helpful and the location is great. Plus it's Copacabana so you shouldn't be spending too much time in the hotel anyway lol.

The only redeeming quality of this place is the helpful, friendly and gracious staff. A special shout out to Flavio at reception who was very helpful throughout our stay. If not for the great location right opposite the Copacabana beach this place would have closed down at the same level of comfort (and price!)! The complimentary breakfast is chaotic and poor quality. The rooms (and elevators!) are claustrophobic. Rooms are clean but does not have a classy look. And finally poor quality of the (free) Wifi!

We had booked a Superior room, but our view was another building. We upgraded to an Ocean View room and loved it. Beautiful view of sunrise and Copacabana Beach. we put our swimsuits on, and just walked out of the hotel, went across the road, walkedacross the beach to the ocean and had a swim.

We were there during Mardi Gras. We upgraded to an Ocean View room on the 5th floor. Breakfast was included. There was a bar and casul eating area in the lobby. It was great to watch the sunrise and the beach which was completely covered with people and umbrellas. We had walked across the road just with our bathing suits and sandals and had a relaxing swim. I recommend booking in Feb. and the first 2 weeks of Mar. if you want to go to Mardi Gras. After that, prices escalate.

Our room looked into the center abyss as we expected for the price. But what a buy! Right on Copacabana Beach. The place was very clean and the entire hotel staff were extremely helpful and fun to be around. The lobby bar doesn't look like much, but what a place to "people watch'. And the security was more than adequate. Our beds were in need of an upgrade but were marginally fine for the two day stay. The rooftop pool/bar was an added plus. Even though it was Carnaval and the place was incredibly busy, they treated us like we were their only guests and even gave us a late check-out. Unless I found a better buy, I'd stay there again without hesitation.

It is an OK Hotel for a modest family Vacations not for Business.

Good location.

Very helpfil and friendly staff at front desk, and the food was fine. We stayed only one night; would have liked to stay longer, but had to fly to the U.S. the next evening. We hired a taxi through the bell man for a tour to Corcovado and Sugarloaf in the morning. Check-out was at Noon. I asked [...] at the front desk if there was a place we could leave our luggage and shower/change clothes because we would not get back before check-out. He said to keep our romm as long as we needed it, and if anyone said anything,"tell them to see [...]". We really appreciated [...]'s help. He gave us a great felling about the hotel and Rio! We left for the airport at 2PM. [...]
