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...

I HAD A WONDERFUL VIEW OF THE BEACH, EVEN THOUGH, I HAD A SIDEVIEW ROOM. GOOD BRAKFAST AND CLEAN ROOM

The hotel is located right on the Copacabana Beach, within walking distance to the subway station. The hotel provides beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella. The hotel is a 30 floor building, has lots of guest rooms. So be prepared for a crowed breakfast. The breakfast is free but lack of verities. But it’s free buffet. What I don’t like the hotel is its internet. It’s not free, fine, I’ll pay for RB30 for one day connection. But it’s not for one room, it’s RB30 for one device. In another word, if you have 2 devices, you have to switch between them. OK. I can tolerant that. But what’s not acceptable is the internet speed is so bad, it hardly functions. There is a free internet down the lobby, the speed is bad too. If you want to send good pictures to your friends after a day on the beach, this is not the hotel you want to stay. I also don’t like the fact that I spent extra bucks on an “ocean view, with balcony” room and only found that it’s a side view of the ocean and the balcony is so small that a bench cannot even fit there. I asked the door man for a taxi from the hotel to the Corcovado, he told me it would be a prepaid flat fee of RB50. I took a taxi on the street with meter on, it only cost me RB22.70.

This hotel was great for the price. Thr location was great & the rooms were a nice size & clean. The best part was having a little balcony with a view of the ocean. The breakfast was ok - everything a standard Brazillian breakfast includes like cheeses, meats, pastries & fruit. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is in a superb location facing the ocean. We had a room with 2 double beds with frontal ocean view. Some very small ants in the room though bed was clean. Check-in time can be made faster if they post the form that needs to be filled in for each guest online. Otherwise we had a wonderful time.

The hotel views are very nice! The staff is ok but not rude either. It was a good experience!

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.

We waited in line for nearly one hour to check out from the hotel.
