I booked this property on Hotwire.com for a short trip to Rio. It was listed a 3.5 stars and that was a fair description of the property. Located just in from Post One in Copacabana the location isn't the greatest but you can walk the beach. If you want to get to anywhere in Rio though, you'll have to be content to cab it. Another Windsor property is located on the beach and is priced accordingly.
The hotel provides a free breakfast which was tasty enough. It was obviously geared to local and European tastes but there was enough there to satisfy anyone. There was also free wi-fi which should be standard at all hotels.
The room was small, but comfortable enough. The bed was older but clean, and met expectations. Better bed-sheets would have been welcome. What was impressive was the water pressure in the shower. It took a layer of skin off and when turned up I could probably use it to pressure wash my driveway. Every bath amenity you could want was provided.
The service was better than 3.5 stars but I look to the room more than I look to the how nice the bellmen are.
In short if you go into this hotel expecting 3.5 stars you will not be disappointed.
