Everything in One Place
My sister and I loved the location of the hotel and the extremely accommodating staff. We were able to walk to the beach, to the mall, to countless restaurants access street venders , all within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Pickup and drop-off from the GIG airport was FREE, and the staff went out of their way to ensure that our stay was pleasurable.

Just ok
Great locations, but hotel needs to be updated. Amenities are lacking, and the room felt old and damp.

Hot water problems
I booked the suite, had 2 bathrooms with no hot water. When I told the front desk, they told me they had no comparable accommodations to move us to and did nothing......

Our favorite place to stay in Rio
Our second stay at the Windsor Plaza and it was again a great 4 night stay. From check-in the check-out we had a lovely and relaxing time. Room was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed with nice linens. Fridge is a great bonus to keep some water, soft drinks, beers and snacks. Bathrobes were a 5* addition. Two supermarkets nearby, plenty of restaurants, ATMs, and it's easy to get around by Uber. Only a few minutes walk down to Copacabana Beach. Not our last stay. Looking forward to returning again (hopefully next year!) or whenever we need a long weekend in Rio. Bellman Edson is always friendly and remembered us from last year. Breakfast is about R$50/pp and is a big spread with lots of fruit, hot items, cereals, baked goods, juice, and more.

Great staff & breakfast, nice room, bad pool & gym
The reason I chose this Windsor was for its amenities which were severely disappointing. The small rooftop pool was consistently filled with over 20 people at a time (too many for its size) which included teenagers horsing around and splashing water in your face so it was not at all relaxing or enjoyable. There was so much chlorine in the pool that my white bathing suit turned a pale grayish green after only 15 minutes in the water. The gym was so small and so hot without any free weights that it wasn't worth using. On the positive side and the reason I didn't give the hotel a bad score is first its staff. They were very accommodating and professional. Unfortunately there were never any towels available for the pool or beach but they were helpful in every other way even giving me a cup of ice free because there's a charge for ice. The front desk was always attentive and pleasant. Second the rooms. The large bed was comfortable and the windows are sound proofed to block out street noise. Both equate to a good night's sleep. The full length mirror on the closet door was a bonus. I would have liked to have a coffee pot or an electric kettle to heat water but those aren't in the room. Third BREAKFAST! Really abundant and even included crispy bacon. It opened at 6am which was great to get an early start on the day. Overall I rated the hotel well because of its staff, rooms and breakfast but I wouldn't stay there again as the pool and gym are so sub par.
