I spend 3 nights at Windsor Palace in connection with my work! The service was very good as well was the food! Room also had a very good standard. The staff was very friendly, service minded and quite proficient in English, which is not that common in Latin America! I would recommend this hotel to anyone that would like a pleasant stay in Rio de Janeiro!

We stayed in February as a group of friends. Main positives: Great location (just off Copacabana beach); felt very safe with doormen etc.. ;good breakfast. Key highlight: Caipirinha cocktails by the rooftop pool. Main Negatives: Although breakfast is good, the hotel restaurants evening meal offer was well below expectations for both choice and quality. In general the hotel lacked wow factor - most aspects of it could be described as 'fine'.

I stayed here with 4 friends and this hotel perfectly suited our needs. We stayed in an executive room with a small balcony. You could see Copacabana beach which was a nice bonus. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice for vegetarians and meat eaters. Lovely fresh fruit and a delicious walnut bread. We did not eat here for dinner so couldn't comment on that. Location was perfect, eateries and bars nearby if you do not want to venture far. Beach literally a 2 minute walk away. The rooftop pool was small but enough for you to cool off and sip a cocktail or two by. The station was close as well as Ipanema, sugar loaf and CTR. I would say this is not a luxury hotel, but more than suited our needs for a girlie week away In the sun. PLEASE - hooks in the bathroom, an iron board and tea facilities in room would be great. SHOUT OUT - to Leonardo, Marina and the other receptionist wearing glasses plus all the breakfast staff. You were all excellent and helped to make our stay enjoyable.

Hotel could have a better than average score with a little more attention to detail. A good sized room for our 6 night stay but only 1 chair in the double room and only 1 bedside table (despite asking front desk staff) and no tea/coffee making facilities. Otherwise clean and comfortable. Good door staff and felt safe throughout our stay. Good breakfast and nice rooftop pool and bar with views of Copacabana beach. Great situation 1 road back from the beach amidst local stores and bars with a short walk to the Metro station. Fantastic 'pay by weight' restaurant just across the road with an astonishing variety of food and drink.

Part of the disappointment was my own fault, I meant to book a different Windsor hotel (be very careful when u book becuase there r like a dozen different Windsor hotels in Rio), and booked this one by mistake. The biggest problem with this hotel is that it's in a very dodgy part of Copacabana. The neighborhood is very ghetto, the streets are dirty and full of homeless people around, I was literally scared to go out. It is one block away from the beach. Ideally you would wanna book something ON Avenida Atlantica so that you are right accross the street from the beach. The hotel itself is quite dated, and the amenities (or lack of thereof) makes it more of a 3 star rather than 4 star accommodation (as advertised). There is no body lotion, no bottled water , only have one cup for toothbrush, no shower gel, poor washroom ventilation, etc. Housekeeping left a bucket the first day, only gave us one towel the second day, came very late, etc. Pool on the rooftop was the size of a hot tub. Breakfast selection quite limited. No currency exchange service. No adapter was available at front desk. Only good thing are the doorman who always open the door for u when u go in n out. All in all not what I was looking for and staying here really ruined my experience in Rio.
