On the beach

Stayed here on a group tour. It is right on Copacabana, and a nice stroll to Ipanema. The view from the upper rooms is fantastic. The hotel is older but well maintained. It has a pool, and free use of beach chairs on the beach. Good breakfast. The lobby is always crowded. Wifi is free in the lobby, expensive in the rooms. FYI, there is a sister Othon hotel located back-to-back to this one, no view, but cheaper. Friends stayed there after the tour and said it was nearly as good.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is located in an area filled with restaurants, both local and touristy. It is safe to walk at night in the busy, lighted areas, supposedly not safe out on the sand.

Unpleasant reception.

We have no complaints about the hotel or rest of the very friendly staff but one reception staff called Bernardo spoilt an otherwise perfect stay. First of all, he made a huge fuss about my using my maiden name for the booking despite the fact that I went with my voucher on my iPad. I had to call my husband to show the credit card he used for the booking which was for my cousin and me. Then Bernardo insisted that a credit card be used for guarantee, but nothing will be charged. But when we checked out, we were charged again ! We complained and were told the transaction was canceled' but we checked our account and at the moment it is "pending". So what should have been convenient turned out to be more troublesome as there is nothing worse than having to keep checking that we have not double paid. I would suggest that reception staff, especially Bernardo go for retraining, as they are the first and last contact that a customer has of the hotel. Probably the others are not as grouchy but our experience has a bitter after taste because of him.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The best value meals are at the "Self service per kilo" where you take just the amount of food you want and the quantity is weighed. The good ones are about B$ 60 a kilo and 500 gm. was more than we could eat. We could try everything that took our fancy, surveying the buffet beforehand.

Nice location, modest 4 star hotel

Rooms are OK, nothing special. Windows don't close well, and it can get quite noisy. Great views from seaside rooms. Fitness room is extra ($30), very old and not clean. Swimming pool is small and not as it appears in the picture. Check in-check out procedures are very, very slow -count extra time! Brakfast is OK, rather modest choice/ambient.

IN BETWEEN TIMES

me and my wife travel abroad quite often to cruise , we usually have to make a hotel stop along the way so with that being said the Hotels location was perfect with the beach being 100 yards from the hotel entrance especially for the price. Make sur you get a room above the 16th. floor and ask for the beach view, the wait to check in & out is at least 1 hour but the room was comfortable and the front desk staff was very pleasant. I WOULD STAFF HERE AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT.

good/average in great location

everything in Rio is very expensive, especially in Copacabana. There are better value hotels in e.g. Ipanema, but I stayed in the RIo Othon palace about 25 years ago for the first time and decided to come back. Overall pleasant experience and nice staff. One MAJOR point of disappointment, 30 Rs per day for internet, which was extremely slow and interrupted constantly. In a hotel like the Othon with a 5 star rating, this should be free.

Awesome location, right on the beach. Standard hotel with dated decor, but still has comfy beds. I think I would have been disappointed if I hadn't have booked a junior suite. The sun room/ lounge was awesome. Nice breakfast

Fantastic location and breakfast

Fantastic location and breakfast at the poolside on the 25th floor, looking over the entire Copacabana Bay and beyond, simply breathtaking. The reception area leaves alot to be desired. It was like an airport waiting area. For an enormous hotel, I was dismayed to find only three cramped ill-lit cubicles for internet access. Only one of these, at the time, was capable of actually accessing the internet - and you had to pay another 20 dollars for an hour of this privilege. The bedroom's walk in shower was really dangerous. The floor pan didn't drain properly so that, even with the tiny rubber mat down, both myself then my wife nearly slipped over trying to exit and there are no handles on the walls to save yourself.
