I stayed at the Windsor Barra during a recent conference. The hotel is well located in Barra de Tijuca, a beach front located south of Copacabana and Ipanema in a nice area of town where according to locals it is safer to walk. The beach is just across the street and it appeared well populated during the day I got a very spacious room on the 16 floor facing the street. The room was great, well furnished with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was very nice as well with great shower. The place was very well kept and was very clean. The only issues I had was with the AC thermostat and with the street noise. The street in front of the hotel is quite busy and it can get very noisy at times. The thermostat was not working well. I brought it up to the staffs attention and it appears something was done to it. The hotel restaurant was excellent. Breakfast was included. The selection was excellent with all sorts of tropical fruits, breads, cold cuts etc. Catering during the conference was superb with different selections including meat, fish or chicken and several vegetable selections. In summary a nice place to stay if you want to be a bit away from the action in a safe area
"Amazing Upscale Gem in Barra"
Wonderful hotel right across from the beach in Barra. Staff was extremely attentive and spoke English well. Restaurant was consistently good. I definitely recommend you get the breakfast package. Ideally located to Ipanema and Copa Cabana. Best is the beach across the street as it is less crowded, cleaner and safer than most other beaches.
My first stay at the Windsor Barra Hotel in Rio de Janeiro. I was attending a Convention in another property of the same Group just across the road and its location is excellent for that purpose. Nice accomodations, friendly staff, good breakfast.
"Ideal place for a congress, conveniently close to the sea."
Large hotel with, together with sister hotel aside, a large congress venue. Connection between the hotels via ground floor or via walking bridge at 2nd level. Very good breakfast with a lot of choice and great fruits. Good bed. All perfect' No, I found a very suspicious dark brown stain under the toilet seat - quite easy to wash off...
The location is unbeatable, the rooms are ok as well as it’s cleanest. The breakfast is just espectacular, possible on the top three of South America. One things that I did not like was the system that they have to give you the beach towel.
