"Very disappointing "
This hotel is definitely not the 4 star hotel it is advertised as. While it has a great location across from Copacabana Beach, the rooms are very shabby and tired. They, along with the air conditioning need updating. Because of the warm temperatures, I needed my air conditioning on and it was so loud. It sounded like a Diesel truck idling! It made sleep difficult. I did ask at the desk the next morning if it could be fixed. It was better, but still loud. The food also needs some improvement. Breakfast offered nice options, but it was too bad they were either stale or cold. I would definitely stay somewhere else the next time in Rio.
We stayed at this Hotel as part of our tour of South America and loved the location and the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts were excellent. All our hotels were booked by our travel,agent( amigo tours) and were universally good!
"Very Nice Hotel Next to Copacabana Beach"
The Windsor Excelsior was quite nice with its location next to Copacabana Beach. We walked along the beach, to the Fort/Museum, night market and shops on Copacana Avenue. Our room was not large, but adequate. The buffet breakfast was very good: nice selections, waiters served coffee, and tables had tablecloths and beach views. Service was very good. Hotel also offered money exchange.
"Great location. Very good breakfast. Decent rooms. "
Located on Avenida Atlantica, by the seaside. The rooms are kinda old-fashioned, tidy and clean though. Very lovely and kind people. Breakfast is very good. There are plenty of options at the buffet. Tours are also available.
Hotel has a great location nearly halfway along Copacabana beach. The hotel also has its own area on the beach with sun loungers and towels (complimentary). Breakfast offers a great selection of cereals, juices, breads, cheeses, fresh fruit etc. Rooms are a little dated, there is an in room safe, no bath, but a huge shower. Careful with the food and drink options in the room, very expensive. The area around the hotel was very safe, we had no problems day or night, other than people trying to sell a wide range of souvenirs. Plenty of restaurants near hotel to choose from. There is a roof top pool and sauna, with great views of the beach and Christ the Redeemer.
