No frills hotel which is clean but udated. Good breakfast selection and friendly staff. Well located for the metro in an area which felt safe at night. Worth considering particularly if visiting Rio 2016

Dear Mr. David,
First of all I would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us.
Our location is indeed a fantastic one for those who wants to enjoy the games in Rio as we are close to the boulevard, the marina and also with a subway station just a few steps away.
Once again I thank you for your comments and for choosing us to enjoy this fantastic olimpic period.
Best regards,
Neube Brigagão

Hotel was a great location for Olympics for me even with 2 metro lines and a long bus ride at end. I found the hotel staff here to be very friendly and the hotel very clean. Good security at front of hotel and hotel entrance is literally in front of the Catete Line 1 and 2 metro stop. Easy walk to beach and to Largo metro stop where you can catch bus ride to Corcovado though I'd recommend the tram for that but tram requires 1-2 day advance purchase. Mini bar was reasonable and housekeeping did a great job.

The Windsor Florida is located in a middle class residential neighborhood that is safe and busy with people walking in the streets. The location is really convenient next to a metro station and Catete Palace which offers free admission on Sun. & Wed.

Staff is efficient and professional. It seems that Brazilians constitute a large percentage of the clientele at this property judging from my visit. I requested two adjacent rooms but unfortunately there were none available when we checked in the first night, but later the front desk agent kept an eye for my request and he called me in the evening advising that he found two connecting rooms. The following day we were switched to the new rooms which was greatly appreciated.

The rooms are very clean and personally I liked the hardwood floor and the handy small refrigerator under the desk. As others have mentioned there is no ironing board and this has to be requested. The bathrooms were fine but I thought that they were a bit skimpy with the towels by not leaving some extras.

Buffet-style breakfast and dinner are available in the spacious "Babuska" restaurant in the lobby. There is a good assortment of dishes during both settings and the food was decent with plenty of choices. Great selection of desserts if you have a sweet tooth. When I went for dinner I was pleasantly surprised that the steaks in the buffet were not overcooked.

I had the pleasure to stay at This Hotel for almost two weeks during a business trip. The Windsor Florida Hotel is a classic, legit Hotel. It gives a "60's" feeling - with butlers, bartendersand waitors dresses in white tux and a genuine approach to service.
- bortom line; i enjoyed my stay. Absolutely.

This is a typical travel or business related hotel. Although the accommodations are somewhat basic, they are very clean and comfortable. The Catete subway stop is about a 1 minute walk from the front door. The staff is accommodating and helpful. The restaurant is a buffet (very common in Rio) and quite average. The Flamingo Beach is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel and easy to navigate. We were allowed to check in late morning as our flight landed early in the morning. Views from the top (10th) floor are interesting and you can catch Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer, Favelas, etc.

Room tip: The rooms all have noise deadening windows which are quite effective

This property is very clean, comfortable beds, extremely friendly staff serving with a smile all the time. Looks like it is popular with some of the Olympics players. Spotted a number of participants. Although this property is not close to the beech, there is a metro station very close (2 minute walk) that can take you closer to the beech area. They have a variety of breakfast selections ranging from tropical fruits to vegetarian options if need be.
One can book a private tour around Rio at the reception desk. A full day tour will cost around R$ 450 per person (Buffet lunch included) . I would certainly ask for a tour guide named Patricia who was excellent. took us to all the major attractions. I will definitely go back to stay there. Huge thank you to the staff who with their positive attitude and pleasant nature, made our stay very memorable.

Room tip: West facing rooms on the 8th and 9th floor has a great view of one of the favelas.
