Tulip Inn Rio Copacabana

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

6 years ago I stayed in this hotel for the first time. I think they had just renovated the hotel, and it looked amazing. So when I had the opportunity to go back to Rio de Janeiro, this hotel was my first option. The overall experience was what I expected, the hotel is in front of Copacabana, it's clean, it offers umbrellas and towels to take to the beach, great breakfast, it has a bar and restaurant (lunch and dinner), staff extremely friendly, but the hotel is looking a little tired. The bathrooms need to be renovated: it looks old and somewhat dirty, and the rooms need to be painted: it looks rundown.

The Tulip Inn Copacabana is a great hotel for the location and price. As others have stated, the exterior and lobby are beautiful, modern and clean. The rooms, however, are very mixed. As I was traveling with a large group I saw many of the rooms - some of them larger and updated than others for the same price. Our first room was great - side view of the ocean, large enough, clean. However, when the a/c malfunctioned we moved to another room, which was smaller, but more importantly, shabbier and not clean. The staff were great in terms of providing assistance with room service, taxis and tourist info. Bottom line: If you stay and find your room to be shabby and unclean, request another.

My stay at Tulip Inn was okay. The location of the hotel is right across from the beach. The free breakfast was okay (its free). I would recommend this hotel

The beach is directly across the hotel. The hotel provides towels and umbrellas for customer use. The staff was pleasant enough, but suspect if they had someone who spoke English it would more pleasant. The hotel room was clean;they are currently remodeling. It didn't bother us though because we were always gone, so for us it was perfect. It can be likened to a Days Inn. There is reasonable and they have a breakfast buffet that was reasonable.

Unfortunately Tulip Inn Copacabana was still being renovated when we arrived. But they were very helpful about transferring us to Tulip Inn Continental very close by and the rest of our stay was pleasant and comfortable.

It was 4 days during New Years and we were in the middle of the action for only $100 or so per night. They finished very nice renovations during our stay. I bet next year this hotel will be double that price. They even bought us a nice dinner for our troubles even though we never hinted at any problem with it. Very nice. They have free towels and umbrellas to use on the beach. It's clean, safe, basic, and practical. No sizzle here, but that's fine w/ us.

The hotel information neglected to include that they were under renovation. You must enter on the side and there is no real lobby. The staff was not helpful. They had a hard time matching me up to the tours advertised at their desk.[...]

Was charged per person, 2nd person did not arrive first night, but was told no refund or credit. Entire front of hotel has been demolished for remodeling, advertisements for hotel do not reflect this. Hotel is old and needs demoloshing not remodeling. Rooms were old and dirty.

Terrific location across from the beach.Situated in close proximity to many restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff was exceptional.The front desk was very helpful to us by giving suggestions on which sites to visit. We had switched rooms after the first night and had left a substantial amount of money in the first room.It was returned to us immediately when found by the staff. This was my first visit to Rio and when I return I would definately stay at this hotel again.

Ok for one night but not for 7 and they did nothig. The free breakfast was fine - be warned the saugage is simly hotdogs cooked in onions and peppers. The staff was friendly enough not very communicative.
