“Very satisfied with Rio Roiss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

I stayed here at the end of an Intrepid Trip through South America. I added 4 extra nights at the Rio Roiss and was satisfied with my stay. The location cannot be beat- a block away from Copacabana Beach, but near the south end so it is a convenient walk to Ipanema Beach as well. The staff was very friendly and managed to change my room to a nicer room with a partial view when there were problems with my tv in the first room. Breakfast is on the top floor- aside from the nice views, the food was plentiful and there was a lot of variety.
The rooms are spacious- a little dated, but comfortable. All in all I would recommend this hotel for the kind staff and the good location.

Room Tip: As for one of the '02' rooms. It is a very small hotel- only 4-5 rooms per floor, but the 02...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

My opinion is consistent with the others people. i was a a single woman traveler and also stayed at this hotel as part of a group. the location is perfect, on a quiet street but right in the thi ck of things. If you get an '02' room' on the corner you'll likely even have a small view of the beach! my room was 257 real for single occupancy and was huge, yet a bit dated but v clean and also a nice bathroom huge shower. The breakfast room is on the top floor and has a nice little open balcony to go onto just to take in the backdrop. bkfst food was fine, decent eggs, fruit, cereal etc. Both people i met at reception spoke english and were helpful and can advize re tours/times. the pc with internet access in the corner of the lounge area is also a really nice touch and came in v handy!

Room Tip: 02 room, eg 1002

excellent location excellent staff, reasonable prices. next to everything. money changer,food joints and beach are one minute walk only. i would recomend this hotel to travelers who visit rio for first time the they can choose from there. i moved out to an apartment then returned to hotel due to lack of services and A/C in apartments. rooms are spacious and very clean. this hotel has no problem with visitors like other hotels.

Room Tip: choose rooms on higher floor and facing beach

The hotel staff is great and very helpful. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean, if slightly dated. Breakfast is fabulous, and the view of Copacabana beach from the top-floor breakfast room is even better. Great location, reasonable prices--I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed here by myself for a few days before starting an Intrepid tour. No real complaints about the Rio Roiss. My room was clean, and the hotel is well located in Copacabana with supermarkets and plenty of places to eat in walking distance. Best of all, the hotel is a block from the beach, with a good view from the dining room (not so much of a view from the rooms).

Staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast buffet in the morning had a nice selection of fruit, breads and cakes.

Room had a safe, TV had excellent selection of channels, and the flow of water from the showers was pretty powerful.

Only complaint for me was my air conditioning sounded like a rusty chainsaw. I was staying in the rainy season, so I didn't find myself needing it too much at night.

Internet is available in the lobby only, however I was able to get Wi-Fi from the hotel next door from my room.

The staff cannot speak any English at all. I don' know what it is with Brazil but this is not uncommon here. If you need any help you are on your own. You can pay to get a safety deposit box in the room (it is not included). The hotel is one block from the beach Copacabana. There are also cheap internet places and everything you need within a short walk. The area like all of Copacabana is a bit sketchy. If you want safety go to Ipanema or LeBlon. The rooms are spacious and comfy but a bit dated. The bathroom was nice and had a few little samples.

Just a street back from Copacabana Beach in a safe neighbourhood. Staff were helpful and easygoing with an amazing view from the breakfast room on the roof! The rooms were quite dated, and furniture very old, with a very weird smell - keep the cupboards closed!
