Nice hotel with good service
This is a very nice hotel, but we weren't aware the beachfront location meant we would be exposed to the very loud music blasting from the late-night souvenir vendors lined up along the beachfront. The front desk changed our room to one facing a quieter side street, but the toilet in that room didn't flush well and the air conditioning was very loud. So the front desk again accommodated us and changed us to another room. High marks for their service and understanding of our need to get a good night's sleep!

Carnaval Stay
Service was very good everyone was very friendly. Rooms were not clean. First room we had black mold in the bathroom and the towels were dirty. We got moved to another room. That room the curtains had mold on them and we found ants in the bed. For how much we were paying each night it’s not acceptable. Liked having the valet for the car and everyone at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Good location right on the beach close to places to eat and bars as well.

Poor 2,0
Terrible Customer Service
Specific to my situation: The booking department "forgot" my reservation, then tried to charge me several times the agreed upon price for a "new reservation". After wasting more than an hour of my vacation arguing with several employees, they finally acquiesced and charged me the agreed upon price. General commentary: Staff was rude and unhelpful, except in the last minute or two before expecting a tip. Check In and Check Out were continuously understaffed over my several day stay with huge lines of people generally waiting 30+ minutes to be helped. Rooftop pool is underwhelming, at best.

Rio Othon Palace
Booked and fully paid for 4 months in advance with and promised VIP fast check-in....NOT!!!! I’ve stayed here on 3 or 4 previous occasions so this was disappointing. Rio had a problem with the public water supply and I can only say the taste of the water was disgusting... so much so I couldn’t drink the coffee and used bottle water for teeth brushing. Although the other hotel I stayed in had the same problem they obviously used different water for their coffee. I will return but hoping for improvement next year

Fair 4,0
A vista é incrível e só...acaba aí.
A única coisa decente nesse hotel é a vista. Piscina pequena e deteriorada. O hotel precisa de uma reforma. A suite que foi reformada foi feita da maneira mais econômico e sem qualidade possível. Numa suíte de luxo (cerca de 21 mil reais pelo pacote de Reveillon) com móveis estragados e debaixo da cama muitaaa sujeira acumulada. Eles cobram mais de 10,00 em um cappuccino pois é extra durante o café da manhã. Check-in e check-out desastroso. A entrega de malas funcionou bem.

Good enough for holiday makers not for business
For business trip. Hotel caters mostly to vacationers so feeling slightly out of place. Because of wonderful location at Copacabana beach sand even in rooms. Could be cleaned better. Had room with two single beds, but meant for midgets. With my 185/6f1 beds were too small, and narrow. Mattress very firm too. Breakfast selection was ok, nothing special. Lots of guests, crowded, wonderful view from pool at top floor at 30th.
