The rooms, the staff, the food and the service is simply amazing. This is our second time staying at Windsor and we will definitely stay in this hotel again. Obrigado Windsor plaza!

Excellent location, great staff, accommodated all of my request.

The room was as described and it was nice to have the option of buffet breakfast. The staff were nice and friendly.

There is nothing special about this hotel in the first place. Just wondering why it is labeled as VIP? The hotel is okay. The bed was not comfortable for me. It feels hard . They only gave me cookies for a free bufffet due to my early flight. The swimming pool was small on the 6th floor. I will never stay again in this hotel.

Nice hotel close to mayor attractions, will recommend to friends

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!

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.

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.

Great , no complaints, everything went well! Did not stay in room much but staff was wonderul

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.

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.

Great location, decent room size, clean enough, delicious breakfast! A bit pricey but it's expected when you go to a place like Copacabana.

Dear Mr. Charles, I would like to thank you for sharing your impressions with us. It`s really important to understand our guests perception about what we are offering. We work hard to provide the best product and service for our guests. I apologize if we have not met your expectations. It would be interesting to clarify a doubt. Our pool is not on the 6th floor and I was in doubt if we talked about the Windsor Plaza. I am available for further information. Best regards, Flávio Castro General Manager
