Excellent breakfast, very clean, but very expensive. Hotel needs to live up to its standard when advertising rooms. My room was advertised as the one with pool and ocean view. There was an excellent pool view, but ocean view was an extremely stretched truth, actually so much stretched that it became a Swiss cheese :-)
Overall, a superb hotel with excellent facilities and very courteous staff.
"This is a decent hotel towards the end of Copacaba"
Decent hotel, toward the end of Copacabana beach near Ipenema beach. Small pool and gym on top level, with nice view across beach. It's a 'narrow' hotel, only two rooms on each floor face the beach, other rooms have dingy views of the building next door. Staff were good and helpful. Buffet breakfast was nice, but the same every day.Room furniture is out of date, no drawers to put clothes if staying for more than a day, having to live out of the suitcase and bathroom needs upgrading. Decent hotel for the price.
A very pleasant experience altogether. Hotel is perfectly situated. Easy access to restaurants, currency exchange, subway etc. Tipping is not customary in Brazil and as such the cleaning staff did not take the tips left for them. If you want to tip, ask the concierge how to do it. The concierge is very helpful with booking tours, arranging transport in nice clean cars (that cost a little more than taxis) etc.
Hotel Othon Palace is comparable to a 3.5 Star or better hotel in a place like New York City. A very nice holiday atmosphere. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
This famous beach is also the widest beach in Rio. Throngs of bikini- and Speedo-clad locals and tourists take in the sun, as well as a round of beach soccer and volleyball. Copacabana Beach is a popular venue for concerts and a spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration where partiers wear white for good luck. The glitzy shops and cafés along Avenida Atlântica provide a welcome respite from the heat.
