Windsor Guanabara Hotel
Ranked #83 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed 9 February 2009

We stayed there around New Year when prices skyrocketed elsewhere. This would not be our first choice, given the location - the area around it can be deserted during holidays and the beach is about 20 minutes by bus/taxi, or more, depending on the traffic. But for city center sightseeing the location is perfect, and the hotel itself was a fair deal. The room we stayed in was huge, the staff were helpful and there was more choice for breakfast than other places we stayed for similar amount. On the downside, the gym is not well ventilated, the rooftop pool is small (but with good views) and our room did not have an especially good views either. Overall, we took the plunge and went for it without having seen any reviews, and were positively surprised.

Stayed: December 2008

I usually book this hotel. Guanabara Palace location is strategic for Business , so its easy meet my customers (most of them are based on City Centre).
This hotel is clean, staff is friedly and helpful.
Rooms are clean and confortable (except some of them, near the elevators - noisy!!!!). Breakfast is good. Lunch and Dinner are resonable. Better take a taxi and try other options in Rio.
The problem is at night. Don't try walking at night. Take a taxi. During the day, City Centre is very nice with many stores and good restaurants.
