Below average hotel. If you are not particular about strong unpleasant carpet smell then this hotel is ok. Front office staff were just ok, breakfast was below average. The hotel lication is fantastic by the copacabana beach..basically, a hotel for budget-conscious travellers!!

I had a rare holiday in Rio de Janeiro and chose the hotel where my great-uncle stayed more than 40 years ago, both for its location and price. To my grateful surprise Olinda Rio was a very rewarding experience. Rooms are spacious and well-maintained, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great and central heating showers work very...

Good location, plenty to do in the area. Hotel is one of the older ones, but the staff is friendly. Decent complementary breakfast in the morning that's on par with the other hotels. They speak English fine so no problem for American travelers.

We had an ocean view room with a breath taking view on the Copacabana. The hotel is old and so was our room. The room itself was okay but the bathroom was old and falling apart. The airco was leaking so we had to put towels on the floor. The breakfast was okay. The staff very friendly.

Perfect location! Request a ocean view room -it's breathtaking ! Rooms were very clean and bright. The front desk staff was very friendly, helpful and more than accommodating!! Buffet breakfast was second to none! Every morning was a delightful new feast! This is the place to stay. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!! Loved it!

Stayed for a total of 8 nights during the Olympics in August 2016 and liked it so much I rebooked for 5 days for the Paralympics 2 weeks later in September. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This hotel gave me a Goldilocks feeling (meaning everything was "just right") : located in the heart of Copacabana, cozy and just steps across...

The hotel does not match the pictures. The rooms did not look like they do in the photos. Overall service was ok but they refused to change our room despite the building works going on in the hotel. They serve pork in all meals even if you ask for then not to. I had to become a veggie in Rio...

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
