    Fabulous

    Friendly and efficient staff and the hotel is in an excellant location.The beach beds and towels include in the price are a really nice touch as are the friendly helpful beach staff.

    The swimming pool looks more glamorous on the website than the reality. It was rather small in reality.

    The Hotel Location and views are fantastic; the staff were all very polite and helpful. The breakfast was very good both hot and cold food. The roof pool was lovely it did not seem over busy. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

    The only complaint I have about this hotel is on checking out we requested a taxi, and up to this point we had always been given a yellow taxi but this time they gave us black cars that did not have any meters in them and we were charge over double the price the yellow taxi charged us to get to the hotel from the airport on our arrival. This practice should not be allowed and the hotel should ban it as they know it is happening.

    The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The place was very clean and quiet.

    I didn't like the breakfast. I only ate two times and one of my friends didn't go back after the first day. My other friend never went in because of our comments. I paid extra to have a third person in the room and I think that was because of the cost of the breakfast. I think that you should allow people to opt of the breakfast plan. I think you pay dearly for it.

    Very good

    It was our second stay at the Rio Othon Palace, and its excellent location on Copacobana beach, and convenient siutation for visiting Rio means that it's a good choice when showing visitors the city.

    Chech-in and check out is too long and complicated.

    Read all the reviews of Copabana hotels carefully. Chose to stay in Rio Othon, no complaints, fullfilled all my expectations. Was on 28th (top)floor, great view over Copacabana. Spend the extra 100RS to get it. Staff helpful and professional and friendly.

    The tour promoted by the hotel was below par, unitelligible English speaker, useless. Way overpriced (180RS for SugarLoaf/Christ the Redeemer monument). Take the taxi to both, its cheaper!

    Very good

    The front desk staff, especially Rihana and Sonia were excellent and an asset to the hotel.

    The Air Conditioning system did not cool the room sufficiently, so it was too warm in the room, and they charge extra for using the Internet. They charged 15% Tax even though their Web Site said 10%

    Other than location, nothing else.

    There are too many things I did not like about Rio Othon Palace. Here's just a few: 1) They cheat you by playing with words. "Guaranteed Ocean View" room will get you a room on the side of the building with a distant view of the ocean 2) Absolutely rude front-desk staff 3) Confirmed to by e-mail that they would put an extra bed in the room but refused to do so during check-in 4) "Heated Pool" is anything but heated. 5) Said they exchange Canadian dollars but refused to during check-out time. 6) Hotel is very old, falling apart, and badly in need of renovation. Overall, a 2-star hotel at a 5-star price. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone and will use every forum to warn other tourists about how they cheat you.

    Rooms are clean. Initial room's airco was noisy, I requested and got a change of rooms and new airco was reasonable (not quiet though). Location is excellent, right at the beach, in th emiddel of Copacabana, not far from shopping and near nightlife (5 mins by taxi which is cheap). I was on business and conducted meetings in the lobby bar which was adequate and has (paid) internet. Internet is wireless in most rooms, and for one rate also includes the pool and lobby area.

    Star classification is unreasonably high.The hotel is in need of major refurbishment to deserve it. (I travel a lot so can compare).Pool internet did not function throughout the stay and I felt the feedback about it was not taken serious at all. Nobody seemed to remotely care about it.

    Superb

    Location- close to the CopaCabana and to city transportation, great staff- very helpful... hotel view from the rooms (see side) is the best view from all other hotels (this is the highest hotel in the area). Breakfast is good and again very nice view to the see.

    Internet is not free and work very - but very slowly!!! couldn't even talk via skype... transportation back to the airport- you need to order it 24 hours before planning to leave the hotel.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location right at the Copacabana boulevard is great. The view from our room on the 9th floor with frontal sea view was outstanding; probably the best view you will ever get from a hotel room.

    The hotel is overrated and looks pretty run-down. No way this is a 5- star hotel. I would say it is closer to a 3-star hotel. Ok, the view/location may give it an extra star but still this hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment. The standard room we stayed in is basic and with r$400 per night you get a poor price/quality rate.

    The only thing I liked, is the 30th floor restaurant, the food was amazing!! The hotel should not be considered as a 5 star hotel at all!

    The rooms are old and terrible decoration. It was a little depressing. Room 614
