“Excellent hotel great location.”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stayed in this hotel for three nights while on a tour of Rio, Iguassu Falls and Buenos Aires. The rooms are very modern. We had a huge bed- I guess king size. It did take up a lot of space in the room. The bathroom was very large with lots of counter space for all your toiletries. Our room faces a back courtyard so there was no view but it was very quiet. The breakfast was superior- lots of fresh fruit, eggs etc- just abut anything you would want. The location is great- you are right around the corner from Copacabana Beach. We walked all of Copacabana and most of Ipanema beach. There are many many restaurants within easy walking distance. La Tratoria, an Italian restaurant right around the corner had excellent food and very nice atmosphere. There was a clothing store with children's clothing right across the street where my wife bought soccer shirts for my grandsons and a sports store a few blocks away with shirts, hats etc with team logos. Although they warn you about safety in Rio we felt very safe walking anywhere around the hotel. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel does have standard and superior rooms and since we were on a tour I'm not sure if we got a superior room by luck.

We picked the Windsor Copa based on the Trip Advisor comments we had read and were not disappointed. The location - one block from the Copacabana beach - was very convenient.There are numerous restaurants within walking distance, and we (two women) felt safe walking - even at night. The hotel is modest, but clean and comfortable. We stayed on second floor just above the street and still found the hotel to be quiet; we weren't disturbed by street noise at all. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, not extravagant, but more than ample.

I had what I consider to be the world's best Smoked Salmon Salad at the Copa's restaurant. Arriving after an extremely long and frustrating wait for a taxi at the port, the lunch at the hotel was a godsend. The hotel is in a very good location to stroll along the beachfront but the hotel itself was average (electrical fittings loose in the wall). Not having tour brochures in the foyer to browse while we waited for our room was a negative.We did get a good selection in an envelope with our room key, but would have appreciated them being available much earlier since we had to cram in a lot in 2 days. Staff were lovely, friendly and attentive, but the star attraction was still that salad, I am still trying to work out how to replicate it...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Windsor Copa during the New Year's Eve/Day celebration. It was very overpriced for the size of the room we got (think cruise ship inside cabin size or a small dorm room). But it was expected since it was New Year's and everything is triple in price. For the location, it was good value and on NYE, we walked back and forth to the hotel to use the restroom or freshen up in between partying on the beach. The hotel is located a block away from the beach. It is also located right next to the Copacabana Palace hotel but in the back. The room was clean and basic. There are no additional amenities provided as the hotel does not have a pool or spa. Even though it is a basic, simple hotel, we enjoyed our stay for its location and cleanliness.

The breakfast buffet is included in the hotel price and it was average with a variety of fruits, juices, pastries and hot foods. The hotel provides beach towels which can be picked up in the basement near the garage.

The staff is very knowledgeable about different sites to visit, tours, as well as restaurants/bars in the area. Another plus is that the staff spoke English. I recommend this hotel for those on a budget and care about cleanliness of a hotel. Also, if you don't plan to stay in the hotel room that much, this is an ideal place to stay as the rooms are tiny.
