"Great location and price."
I found this hotel an excellent value for the price. Excellent breakfast buffet with a wide selection to choose from. Close to the beach and near by restaurants. Rooms are large and modern. Easy check-in and check out. I recommend this hotel to visitors to Rio looking for a nice place and a value rate.
"Decent value rooms in a good location"
Rooms are very good and not too expensive. We had a level 2 room and thought we might be disturbed by the street noise but we found it wasnt an issue and was actually handier to be closer to the lobby as sometimes the lifts can be slow to arrive, so we often used the stairs out of convenience. One of the minor issues with the hotel is that all tv channels are in Portuguese with only CNN in English , considering most of the clientele are foreigners it would seem like a reasonable suggestion to at least have a few more English channels. Fortunately for us the wifi was fast enough so that we could stream netflix. The rooftop pool is nice but too small for a hotel of this size and you should probably forget about swimming when there are already people in there. The location is pretty good, 1 block from Copacabana beach although i prefer the Leblon and Ipanema beaches which are quite a distance away. Breakfast had a decent variety of food and was open from 6am which is better than most places. The only shortcoming was the restaurant food was quite bland on the one night we ate there, I suggest finding other places to eat in the area over the restaurant or room service. Aside from that, staff were helpful and polite. Overall, we had a pleasant experience here.
"Helpful and professional staff"
Good quality rooms high standard of cleaning. Best breakfast we have had on our tour of South america. One block back from Copacabana beach if has a roof pool, bar and gym with views of beach. The staff were very helpful an professional. Well positioned for metro and shopping areas. Not an area that is completely safe at night but can order taxis to get around.
"Great value, great room."
We got great value as we booked well in advance. It's not a shiny brand new hotel but it's perfectly clean. Our partial ocean view from room 1703 was awesome. We could see the ocean, the hills and sections of the beach through the buildings in front (all lower). I would definitely stay again. The pool was small but great view! Breakfast buffet was lovely.
"Well run hotel close to Copacabana Beach"
From check-in to check out, the staff at the Windsor Palace Hotel friendly, courteous and helpful to a man\woman. My room on the 9th floor was substantial with a big double bed and balcony (though not much of a view). The room was cleaned everyday to a high standard. The concierge team were great at booking us taxi-vans which made travelling as a group of 10 much cheaper and convenient. Breakfast fare was substantial though the same every day - no opportunity to request an omelette or tapioca (local equivalent to an omelette). Location is one block from the beach and towels are supplied by the hotel. If you want to sit on the beach for free, Windor Hotels has an area on the beach near to the Copacabana Palace Hotel where you can use - just look for all the yellow Windsor Hotel towels and signed seats and umbrellas.
