Great view from breakfast room / poolside. Rooftop staff nice. Good location.
Front staff unhelpful on arrival - could not find reservation, and would not help by allowing us to find it online. Gave upgrade, though debatable whether the room was any better than the one booked. View not great for 'superior elite' room. Room internet not free (not as advertised). Mosquitos constant in lobby area, where you need to be for wifi. Staff generally aloof, not pleasant or welcoming. Breakfast a chaotic experience - first day better.
The service is really poor., the rooms extremely dated, I would not recommend to anyone and or return.
Excellent location with good view
The pool was very small. The breakfast not as good as good as other hotels in this price range, The reception staff were not very friendly or helpful, which is unusual in Brazil.
We went on the city day tour and saw the sights. However the weather was misty so we didn't really see Christ the Redeemer too clearly.
Trying to cross the road from the hotel to the beach.
Great location, very clean room& pleasant and helpful staff
Toilet seat was broken
Very good location and good/modern facilities
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.
Location on new YEAR's eve
The standard of the room was unacceptable... But the hotel are under restoration and renewing... Which means that our room might be comfortable in the future.
Close to the beach
Very worn out hotel, unprofessional staff (it took 1 hr to check in), rooms were old, looks more like a 1 star hotel/motel than a 5 star hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. A true tourist trap!!!!
everything but the food, specially location
The food at the hotel, room service not very good
the stunning view of copacabana beach from the room, the cleansiness, the room furniture, services in the hotel
swimming pool, breakfast room looks a bit like a canteen rahter than a four star hotel food hall, but food quality and variety is good
Copacabana is not the best place to stay in Rio, but apart from that, the hotel was a good choice
Very long lines at times for check-in and information.
