“One of the best on Copacabana”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

If you can afford to pay more then this hotel is certainly a cut above the other Windsor hotels and worth the extra - but make sure you get a room above floor 20 and with a sea view - which cannot be bettered. Very good breakfast buffet with attentive staff and great views over the beach. Aircon works well - a rarity in South America. A few small restaurants and super market nearby.

I stayed for 6 nights at the Windsor Atlantica for a business trip. It is right on Copacabana beach which was a convenient central location and was a good spot to go for a run each morning. I enjoyed my stay here and slept and ate well. The staff are helpful, there's a GREAT Italian restaurant on the ground floor (which is a much better option than the evening buffet in the main restaurant) and the pool areas offered a welcome break after the day's meetings were done. Would definitely stay here again. The rooms are clean and comfortable - not the most stylish rooms as they are quite 'beige' - but they do the job well. Breakfast is excellent - amazing fresh fruits and made-to-order omelettes. Only 2 small things I think could be improved: offer a kettle and tea/coffee making facilities in the room and there is quite a lot of noise from the elevator so take ear plugs!

Room Tip: Ask for a view and to be as far from elevator as possible

I have planned to check-in for 8 nights in this hotel. However, the experience is totally unbelievable, considering I have to pay R$ 1,000/night. The front desk officer was unfriendly to begin with. As soon as I arrive at the room, there is this very strong deodorant smell in the room. The smell is unbearable. Next is the wifi, I have to pay for R$35/day for the wifi and it's not even working, only 1~2 bar and transmittance service. I called the technical department, front desk...etc. They promised to fix it but they never did. Next, I tried to take a bath and man, those towels are covered with strong bleach smell......

The only good thing is they have excellent view on the top of their roof and location is not too bad either.

The value offered is really not worth the paying price. I checked out the 2nd day, moving to Ipanema, paying around 60% of the price with better value.

Room Tip: Make sure you find higher floor room, with full sea view.

I was really impresed by the building, decoration, quality of food and even more by the confortable rooms.
The view from the 40th floor was superb I could admire Pao the Azucar the Corcavado Christ and the Copacabana beach, i could not ask for more.

Room Tip: you can book it via internet and get a super room at a really cheap price.

Great hotel. Security 24/7 in lobby. Wicked view from pool up top. Bar there pricey but to be expected at a beachfront hotel in Copacabana I guess. Pablo at reception extremely helpful as expedia messed up my reservation as apparently "double room" on expedia does not mean 2 people, nor does it mean 2 beds - it means "double bed". So myself and my buddy go check in and the guy at the front desk goes to confirm that 1 bed is okay to which my response was "uh, no. One bed is definitely not okay which is why i booked the double room". Long story short, we all laughed about it in the end and Pablo the reception guy put us in a different room with two beds. That did cost more tho so be careful with expedia bookings I guess is the lesson here. Otherwise, hotel was pretty awesome. Oh, best breakfast buffet I've had in a long time with tables overlooking the beach, icing on the cake.

The hotel is about half hour drive from the international airport of RIO. Just across the street to the beach of Copacabana. Bike rental right on the side of the hotel.
A very nice reception and staff help you with check in and stuff. Some rooms has direct sea view, but i had a city view room, but it was ok. The room was clean but just a thin blanket on the bed. The minibar was extremly loud either the aircon, which just could be adjusted to the temperature. Bathroom with shower was ok. A lot of amenities.
On the 37. level a little warm pool but a spectacular view to copacabana.
Sugar loaf mountain 10 min by taxi. Hotel organizes transportation.
All in one very nice and recommendable place.
