Exceptional 10.0
Excellent hotel
This hotel was an excellent choice for our trip. The location is very central in the Copacabana beach area, great shopping, shops, food, walking distance to a subway/metro station, and the beach! The rooms were extremely spacious and comfortable. Clean, quiet, and with amazing service. Our booking included breakfast and it was a fantastic one. There isn’t anything bad about our stay during our time in this hotel. I highly recommend this place if you like to relax and enjoy your time in Rio!

Excellent hotel. Highly recommend
Excellent hotel on excellent location. When we arrived, we were greeted with many servers. We were offered sparkling wine and have sit down check in. The room is spacious and beautiful.I paid a little more for Superior room and facing the Copacabana Beach which is very worth it. The security of the hotel is great as there is always someone at the door outside and inside the hotel. The decor is modern and elegant. The picture of the room on the web site looks small but it is bigger. Hotel is near many restaurants and the area is not old. I highly recommend to stay in this hotel and don't bother to stay at Ipaname Beach which the hotels are expensive, small, and not many restaurants close by. We need to walk 15 mins to find places to eat and come back at night at Ipaname. Wish we had stayed at this hotel the whole time. Ask the Reception where to eat Brazilan BBQ which is alos excellent and great value. 89 Sol per person and offer senior discount. We went twice. We feel safe at Copocabana and Ipaname beach. There is policeman and police car at Ipaname beach. There is Taxi fixed rate 130 Rio currency at the Airport before we exit . Half price when you come back with them. We also find taxi across from Arena Ipaname Hotel for 70 Rio currency. Booking airport transfer from the web site is more expensive. We booked Rio Taxi through Whatapps which charges 130 and meet us when we exit the custom which is nice. But it didn't offer a deal for return.

Safe, beautiful, professional!
My husband and I stayed in Rio for 6 nights in August 2020. Even though we traveled during a very crazy time with Covid, we had a WONDERFUL experience with Windsor California. Specifically, Mariana was extremely professional, attentive, helpful and positive! The hotel was very clean, with safety measures taken from check in to check out. We chose to change rooms to one with a balcony and it was a very easy and worthwhile change. The rooftop is amazing and the hotel itself is very new and in a very safe and scenic area of Copacabana. We will definitely be staying here again if we ever find ourselves in Rio. Hands down the best value for our money of everything during the vacation!
