"A first class stay in Rio for a memorable experience of copacabana"
Stayed at Excelsior for over a week and enjoyed every day of the stay. The beach service was a real delight with attentive staff and access to fresh coconut, beach towels and deck chairs. The staff at the reception spoke english and provided good local guidance about attractions and restaurents. The breakfast was absolute heavenly with fresh quality fruits which are a must have for any traveller to Brazil. A nice hotel for family
"Good hotel in a great location"
This is a good hotel in a great location. Service is attentive and although we only had breakfast in the hotel, the choice and quality was as good as any breakfast we had on a month long trip through South America. It's in a great location and it was fantastic having breakfast looking straight out onto Copacabana Beach and all of the activity on that beach. Public transport is excellent with lots of buses in the area and it's also not far from the underground. There are lots of good restaurants in the area and I can highly recommend the hotel.
"Good value and perfect location "
I stayed for 2 nights and loved it, nice room with view of the beach, perfect rooftop terrace with pool and drinks and sight of the whole Copacabana and Cristo Redentor, very good breakfast, good value
"Great beach location"
Absoluetly loved our stay here. A lovely modern, clean up-market hotel. Although our room was facing the side street we could still get a glimpse of the beach. The buffet breakfast was a feast. Lovely variety of fresh food. Was a pleasure to start each day with such a lovely meal. The room was really nice and had everything required. Right on the main beach strip, just a walk across the road to the sand. Very safe place, especially with police presence everywhere. Beware of dodgy taxi drivers though. We had no problem with the taxi ordered from the hotel to take us to a shopping centre, but the returning taxi from the centre was not so good. When we arrived back I didnt have a small note to pay him with and he refused to give me change, which was considerable. My sister and I refused to leave the taxi and he got extremely irate and very verbal in his language. Only after threating to call police did he give me my change. Sounds like this is a problem there. It's easy to arrange tours from the hotel and they are not too expensive. It's only a short walk to the Metro and a quick trip to Ipanema Beach. Be sure to take in the Hippy Market here. The main shopping street is the street behind the hotel. There is a great Haviana shop close to buy those cheap jandels.
My husband and I stayed at the Windsor Excelsior Hotel the week before the Rio Olympic Games. We found a great rate for the time and decided to stay there, so we could enjoy the zone Sul beaches. The check in was fast and efficient and they upgraded us to a partial sea view room. The room was a little darker, but it had a good size. The hotel is located in a excellent location. It's just across from the Copacabana beach, 5 minutes walk to the subway, tons of Uber and cabs at the door. There are tons of bar, restaurants and enterteinment around too. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast. I don't think I've seen that much food on a hotel breakfast before and it was include in our rate. They had tons of breads, cheeses, fruits, fresh juices and much more. We didn't even eat lunch that day because we eat so much. This hotel is nothing fancy, but the cost benefit is excellent. I would go back for sure.
