“OK hotel near the beach”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We stayed here during Carnaval 2014. The hotel is clean and the rooms were adequate, but it was extremely overpriced (due to the time of year no doubt). There is not a lot going on in the vicinity of the hotel but there are buses and metros nearby and it's easy to get a taxi from right outside. The beach is so close, literally a couple of minutes walk so that's the main selling point! Would recommend for a few nights in Rio if you're not expecting anything too flash!

Few days in Rio at a nice hotel with nice and helpfull personel, nice restaurant with a good breakfast, the hotel is not located at the beach but pretty close to the Copacobana beach. The hotel is a good starting point for visiting other tourist attractions in Rio.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean and the staff were helpful and many even spoke English. The biggest downside was the Wifi - it only worked in the hallway of our room, but not the room proper. This wasn't a big deal since we weren't in Rio to surf the Internet, and there was a nice table in the hallway to sit at for when we did want to be online. The breakfast was very good, and breakfast staff members were especially nice. The location is fantastic, and they provided towels to take down to the beach even (just ask at the front desk). The hotel shows its age a bit but I think it is a very good value for Rio. I actually think I'd stay here again rather than pay $50 more per night for a better rated hotel.

Chosen because of location for a conference and an (apparently) reasonable price, this hotel really disappointed. The room was tiny with room only for the bed. There was a tiny lobby with a small round table and 2 chairs plus a bathroom hidden round the back of the closet. It was single glazed and extremely noisy all night, with an independent A/C blasting (air and noise) at the bed. No hot water at night and the bath didn't have a plug. Shower worked OK in the morning (and there was hot water) but then the hairdryer blew up. As we were there for a conference we badly needed the desk space shown on the images. We felt we'd been shoved in the attic! Breakfast was fine but to cap it all we were double charged - presumably a mistake and it was rectified when we pointed it out.

Having originally planned for 6 nights we stayed one and checked out.

We stayed in Real Palace for 4 nights in January 2013. The hotel is 2 blocks from the amazing Copacabana beach, the rooms are a bit tired, but offer everything you need. I definitely must mention that the staff was simply the best: warm, welcoming, extremely helpful and full of smiles from the receptionists (especially Marcello and Duarte), to the bellboys to the restaurant, everybody ensured that we had a beautiful stay. Thank you and greetings from Greece!

We enjoyed our 3 days on Rio here.

Great breakfast and a lot of variety.

At arrival got a smaller room than booked but it was changed quicky same night.

Located next to everything. next to beach, next to main street to take bus, 2 blocks from metro station. Good value for your money.

We will come back for sure if we can.

Room Tip: Quite busy place, try to select high floors to avoid street noise (as we did :D)
