"*Do not order steak in the roof restaurant*"
I ordered a Medium steak and it came well done. I told the waiter that it is "not red", not well done, but it came back again WELL DONE and too hard to eat. I did not eat the meat and left it on the plate - yet it was charged!! The restaurant host appologized but did not offer to compensate me. The only good thing in Othon hotel is the location. Disapoointing.
"Great location (at a price) but looking tired"
Pros: Fantastic location, right on Copacabana, with sweeping views of the water and spectacular sunrises - if you get a room facing the water. Great breakfast included in the room rate. Sounds of the ocean provide good white noise for sleeping (fortunately the traffic noise abates by about 9pm each evening). Cons: Overpriced for a hotel that has not been updated for many years. My room had a bidet between the toilet and shower, which made access to the shower very difficult. The water supply to the room was very odd. The taps did not indicate which was the hot tap, so after experimenting with both, I could not get any hot water to the shower. In the end I discovered that the left tap was the hot one, but it needed to run on full blast for several minutes before the water temperature changed. The drainage in the shower was very poor, and I ended up ankle deep in water by the end of my shower. The cold tap in the sink did not work at all, and there was no plug in the sink. Housekeeping was pretty erratic, with items replaced on an ad hoc basis. Interestingly every towel was replaced each day, despite being hung up as per their environmental policy (but I have found this occurs with virtually all hotels, regardless of their supposed "green" stance). The sliding door to the balcony had no catch or lock, but I do not think this was a security concern. However the door did not seal properly, and the wind could whistle through at times. Lastly, despite the fantastic view and spectacular sunrises, once the sun came up I needed to keep the blinds drawn until late morning because it was quite blinding - and quickly overheated the room. The blinds have seen better days and had lots of holes in them. I stayed for 9 nights as part of a group booking and wanted to extend my stay for one extra night. When I looked online, I could get a room for under R$500, but the hotel quoted me over R$700 (+15% service charge!). When I challenged this rate I was initially told too bad, and book online. I later went back to see my friendly reception staff member, who went out the back again to the booking agents and was able to get the rate down to R$620 (+15% service charge) but no lower. I also may have needed to move to a new room for the extra night too. One other cause for continued frustration was the slowness of the lifts. At times it could take almost 15mins to get down to the lobby from the 15th floor. On a couple of occasions I just used the stairs, which was a dizzying experience, with very low head room on the lower floors. In the end I booked a room at the Ritz next door for just R$472.50 (all inclusive) for the extra night. The view was not as wonderful, as it was set a block back, but the room was far more modern and comfortable, with a fantastic rain shower head, and was far better value for money.
"Average hotel, average service, good rooftop view with mediocre restaurant"
Location of hotel is very good in Copacabana. Room had a noisy air conditioning and needed some upgrade. The rooftop bar has a very good view but the restaurant is medicocre. Breakfast is poor in options.
had not been there for 5 years, the hotel is still the same. The staff was better trained and knowledgeable than in my previous visit. Its better to go to the pool in the evening, there are less people and the staff has more time for the guests.
"The rooms of this Hotel have a very beatiful view."
The localization is very good. The hotel is front of the beach. It is very near of subway station Cantagalo. The rooms is very nice and they have a very beautiful view of the Copacabana Beach. The breakfast is very good, and the employees are very kind and nice. I liked very much. I recommended.
