California Othon Classic Hotel Rio De Janeiro
4 out of 5

Well located in the middle of the Copacabana beach front. Nice room with high ceiling and gracious public areas. Reception desk, not well-laid out or well-placed for customer service, could get a bit overwhelmed at times. I thought the charge for 24 hour internet connection (R$20 for 24 hours) was a bit steep. But paying by the minute, I found I kept being cut off!

I have stayed in over a dozen hotels in Copacabana in the past 10 years. Although the location is good and the staff is as helpful as they can be, this is no way a 1, 2, or 3 star hotel. There is urine smell in the hotel; I changed my room but it did not help. There is only one old elevator working for the whole hotel. The Internet is very intermittent and not free even in the lobby. The rooms, hallways and the hotel in general are rather outdated and dirty. I do not recommend this hotel.

The staff was very nice. Breakfast was good. The location is fabulous. The air conditioner has only the on/off set. The sink was broken. The floor on the shower area was damaged and there was a whole on the shower wall. The elevator was scary!

The hotels installations are really old and they need lots of upgrades. The Air Conditioner is really noise and It was impossible to find a power outlet in the room. I would not recommend this hotel for a business trip.

We enjoyed our stay at this budget hotel. The breakfast was nice. Excellent location and while decor and furniture is somewhat dated it was good value for money. We had a front room with balcony . Marvellous views.

Older style hotel right on Copacabana Beach. We were upgraded to a sea view room, which was great as was the breakfast. The hotel was clean and comfortable, with lots of charm and character but the rooms are a little tired. The only downside would be the aircon which was quite noisy, but i guess to be expected with an older hotel. Luckily it wasnt too hot when we stayed so we could turn it off. Would definitely stay here again

A wonderful location (facing Copacabana beach), this Hotel is however 'tired' looking inside (except the restaurant). The public areas and certainly bedrooms, need a lick of paint as a minimum, but really, a full refurbishment. The 4 star indicated on the door, is well overstated (2.5 I would guess). Breakfast (the only meal taken in the Hotel) was good

The hotel is very old and it seems never reverbished the last 20 years :-((. At the reception there was just 1 person. I did arrive at 11:00 AM, and after 3 other promises I got my key finally at 15:15. I would not recommend this hotel.

1. The location of the hotel is excellent. Service was generally pretty good. 2. The hotel did not have any cleenex or tissue in the bathroom, even though there was a slot for tissue. When I asked for one, they said they did not have any nor did they have any plan to have any. 3. The airconditioning unit dripped water on the floor and there was always a puddle of water on the floor just beneath the unit. 4. The knob on the water spout in the bathtub which you pull to turn water from the showerhead did not exist or broken but not fixed. It was quite a trick to pull the device without the knob to get the water from the shower. 5. The TV did not work. And repeated requests it did not get fixed. 6. The breakfast buffet was rather unremarkable. 7. Other than the excellent location, I did not think the price of the hotel was matched the amenities. 8. I would probably stay in a different hotel next time.

The room was very ordinary. Everything was old, more suiting a hostel than anything good. No view but I expected that as I didn pay top price. The check in was a ridiculous 3 in the afternoon & as I had flown ońight I just wanted to sleep but had to wait 3 hours. Maybe itś not a lot but I paid $100Au and could have got the same for half the price. The breakfast however was excellent.

The hotel is nice, nothing too flashy but comfortable, well maintained and clean. The breakfast was very good. The only problem was the staff, specially the receptionists. Check in took about 1 hour because no one seemed to understand the form printed from Rates to go and wanted to charge us more than what it said there. Meanwhile, we were sent to our room, only to find out that it was the wrong one (we had paid for a deluxe) and they said it showed standard on their computer, even though it said deluxe on the form. Once we established that was indeed the right price and got the right room, we were served by another receptionist and the whole thing started again! We received no apologies for the inconvenience and left us very frustrated. Non of the staff seem to speak good english or spanish (we do) which is a bit poor considering it´s an international hotel and made things harder. The hotel is fine, if everything runs smoothly and you haven´t got great expectations on the service.
