Staff was beyond excellent. I would highly recommend this Hotel. I cant say enough good things about this Hotel and there entire staff. Extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you very much.

Due to the Covid19 I paid the same ammount and couldnt use any ammenities, I think they would give a discount if no breakfest buffet was open, no pool and so on. I think the clients deserve a discount bout everything that couldnt use.

Although we did not use the Pool on the Roof, having it available is a unique feature, while also being able to dine out on the roof deck. - We were allowed to check in a couple hours early as our room was available. - We found the food to be quite good, regardless if it was delivered to our room or on the 30'th floor Restaurant.

Wonderful experience overall. !

Nice hotel, aging a little, but still in good shape. Excellent location, nice restaurant and swimming pool. Breathtaking views, great access to beach and boardwalk.

It was right on the beach ,Main area for shopping ,The hotel was nice but very dated!We had to leave our room because of a leak and mold on the ceiling.I don’t think I would stay there again.

Great property, staff, location, the view from the terrace is amazing. Food is great. Swiming pool was overcrowded and the gym coul definitely be better.

Nice hotel. The best part is the location - close to the beach

Great location in a dated hotel. We loved being in Copacabana and right across from the beaches. The hotel was nice enough. The rooms were clean but it was pretty obvious that this is an old hotel that could use a little facelift. The bed was odd, two small beds joined to form a King size bed. Otherwise totally comfortable. The soap was bad, bring your own. The rooftop restaurant was a borderline scam. Not as a nice as one would expect for such a pricey menu. The food is completely subpar and the salad buffet is a joke for about 55 reals. Find a better option in the neighborhood. There are very small things they could do to up the ambience, for exemple, the rooftop pool would be so much more inviting if it was lit in the water, it's not. Overall a great place for you money.

It was a wonderful experience for my first time in Brasil.

Wonderful hotel, very modern, they extend their service to the beach area, getting umbrellas, beach towels etc. The breakfast was the best, unlimited variety and quantity. They help with excursions.

We travelled to Rio to attend my son's wedding and needed lodging. We had 10 people in our group. Others had booked their rooms either directly or through other web sites. We received a "business level" upgrade through Orbitz which included a room with a great view of the beach, limited laundry service (press a suit or shirt daily), and other perks. Like most of the people we encountered in Rio, very few speak English. The front desk people and the concierge did well but most of the other staff did not always understand our requests. The room was spacious and comfortable. The location was near many decent restaurants. The hotel was good at arranging transportation for a few of the excursions we took.

The hotel itself is located perfectly! Easy walk to many locations, helpful staff for questions on where things are or getting a car service. Beautiful view from rooftop pool/bar! Would recommend this place to anyone!

We had a great time at Rio Othon Palace. The hotel has a great location right across the beach of Copacabana. Staff very friendly and courteous. We were surprised to receive a birthday cake for my wife at our room on her birthday, specially since we made no comments about it. Only problem was breakfast too crowded during the weekend and holiday, on weekdays it was ok. Rooms are well accommodated and with nice view, specially in top floors.

The hotel is an awesome location and has all of the amenities you'd likely want. Things like 2 restaurants, an amazing view, a poolside bar, beach service, among other items, are absolutely amazing and create a great experience overall. But let's call it like it is. The rooms are dated, tired, and our bathroom smelled mildewey, moldy or something. And the pool needs a facelift and better cleaning. However, if the rooms were remodeled and everything was perfect, would the hotel price remain as reasonable and affordable as it is? The answer is a resounding NO! So take the good with the bad and appreciate that you had an experience that typically only people with a lot of disposable income can have : )

great hotel with a wonderful location across the street from the beach

I booked two rooms for a family winter trip to Rio. The hotel is very nice, right in front of Copacabana beach. The breakfast was good, Brazilian hotels always offer a very nice breakfast in general. The view from the breakfast lounge was outstanding. This was a very good deal for the price and location, but it looks like a lot of people got good deals here, so it was a bit crowded. If you are looking for something more exclusive with their amenities, it will cost you a lot more. Also, be mindful for their ocean view (it is a side-view on the balcony only) classification, do not confuse it with ocean-front...

Bien ubicado y prolijo. Lo que no nos gustó fue el servicio y la actitud anti-turista. Primero - Inventan una tasa que en realidad es la comisión de Orbitz. O sea, la comisión que Orbitz les cobra, se la terminan cobrando al cliente y lo peor fue que lo hicieron a nuestra llegada, sabiendo que al otro día cerrarían el gimnasio y piscina debido a la emergencia sanitaria que se esta viviendo. Entendemos que no era lógico cobrar ese extra (que es bastante caro) cuando no pudimos utilizar nada. Segundo - la habitación no estaba preparada al llegar. Tercero - Te cobran el agua caliente, cuando se sabe que mucho del turismo de Brasil proviene de Argentina y Uruguay y que nuestro desayuno siempre va acomañado del mate. Por un tema cultural no deberían cobrar algo que para nosotros es de primera necesidad..es 1 termo de agua caliente!! Y el remate fue que nos sentimos discriminados ya que habían huespedes de primera y de segunda. A nosotros nos negaron las sombrillas, diciendo que era por la emergencia sanitaria, y despues vimos a varias sombrillas del hotel en la playa, mientras que nosotros pagamos por otras. La verdad que decepcionante
