"Grate place, amazing people "

gus_aguayo, Almaty, Kazakhstan 10/04/2021

I have being at the hotel for about 4 months in a business trip. Even with all Pandemic issue I have enjoyed my stay here. Location si the best, just in front of the sea, you have seats, shade and towels from the hotel. People is very friendly, always clean and all precautions versus COVID are followed, alcohol gel everywhere mask needed to be in the hotel. Gym is absolutely complete, the only improvement may be at the bar in floor 30, it's nice place with amazing view but sometimes is not the best service.

IIf you want to know any city you have to find a local professional concierge... In fact, we have been so lucky because we were visiting the wonderful city of Rio de janeiro and we had the best options to visit the city like restaurants, tours, shoppings ... just because of JEAN, the CONCIERGE. We visited the historical center of the city and many attractions sites and buildings. But the most fascinating thing was the love and the advices that Jean gave to us. He really surprised us with his education and historical information's that he had about every corner of the city We visited the most famous neighborhoods of RIO because of our special concierge. Thank you very much, Jean!!! You were the best concierge ever!

Erika Souza, Atendimento ao cliente/recepção at Rio Othon Palace Hotel, responded to this review
Hello mrs. Pinto Ferreira, How nice to know that she visited our hotel and our wonderful city and loved it! In fact, we have to agree that Jean is an incredible concierge. And to get to know Rio with all the details, enjoy the sights and know its history, we need help from a carioca who has knowledge. For all tourists, the concierge indicates tours and restaurants, tells the story of the sights, monuments, streets and the history of the city. All our reception staff have this knowledge in depth and are dedicated to helping our guests to have the maximum comfort and tranquility, so that they can enjoy their trip and their stay in Rio de Janeiro even more. We hope you can come back soon to get to know our city even more and of course, take advantage of our hotel, which has its doors open with all the structure, security and the best services, so your trip will be unforgettable! See you soon! :) Best Regards,

"Great view "

User 30/03/2021

I'll start with the positives. When you first enter the hotel you are greeted with friendly staff who speak very good English. Something I definitely needed. They helped you with your bags and showed you to your room. The room it self was very clean and had a great view. I found the air conditioning worked great there was no funky smells . Now when I visited covid was bad down there and a lot of restrictions were in place. The staff was so kind to keep us informed they even walked across the street to inform us the beach was closed so that nobody would give us any issues. Now my only issues with the room was I had a lot of maintenance issues. Bathroom sink was constantly clogging and the large glass door was very hard to open and close . The closets were jammed as well. After going to the front desk a few times they did finally address all of the issues. The food that was at the pool deck area was poor. I found the food to always be over cooked or the risotto to be under cooked. I found the food at the beach to be better prepared. Also the lobby could use some updating. Seeing lights that were burnt out all week is a turn off and dated furniture .

"Average hotel with great staff"

User 12/02/2021

Staff with us done above and beyond and made this hotel go from a 2 to a 3 rating for me. The hotel itself is in a great location but unfortunately just seemed a bit run down. Our room smelled of damp and the breakfast situation is unbelievable. Literally 30 people queuing up to eat. If I'm being honest, I wouldn't stay on Copacabana again, I think next time we would stay in Leblon or ipanema.

Erika Souza, Atendimento ao cliente/recepção at Rio Othon Palace Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mr. Falkirk, Thank you for commenting and evaluating our hotel. We are happy that our employees made a difference in their stay. We aim to provide the best in services, kindness and hospitality. We are sorry for what happened at breakfast. Rest assured that what was reported was somewhat punctual in relation to the queue. We would like a second chance at our hotel, located in Copcabana, with an incredible view. Leblon and Ipanema are incredible, they are very close to our hotel, in your next stay with us, you can quickly reach the mentioned beaches. We look forward to your return, to provide the best! I'm available! Best regards, Erika Souza

"Good 5 nights"

andyharrison30, Leeds, United Kingdom 03/09/2020

Stayed for 4 nights plus 1 separate night whilst travelling around Brazil last year. The hotel staff were great, English was well spoken and service was superb. The breakfast offering was exceptional, a great variety of cooked food, continental, fruits and pastry's available. Rooms were comfortable and the views over Copacabana were great should you pay for a sea view. The only things I would comment on, the hotel caters for western tourists looking for western styled activities and restaurants. We were recommended the Fogo de Chao restaurant by the concierge and upon returning to the U.K. realised this was a chain with a branch in Brighton. Would have been nicer to have a more authentic Rio food experience. In addition, they do not recommend Favella tours so we had to source one online. Finally, we booked a transfer from the hotel to Abraao on Ilha Grande. The price was fair, a little more than what we paid to get back, but the mini bus ride from Rio was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were worn and the bus was full. Instead, I would recommend getting a coach from the station in Centro and then trying to get a boat from Agra dos Reis (speak to your accommodation in Ilha Grande for help with this). Even with a taxi from the bus station, this worked out a few pounds cheaper (only £5 per person) but the coach was significantly more comfortable. Would definitely stay again but maybe only for 1 night after landing in Rio.

"Great Welcome and Location"

s0undman, Swansea, United Kingdom 03/05/2020

Stayed here for 3 nights before heading off to Iguazu Falls. We arrived late evening but had a warm welcome as soon as we pulled up with staff taking out suitcases straight from the taxi. The welcome continued at the front desk where we were helped to complete the forms and checked in quickly and efficiently. The bags were then taken to our rooms. We were fortunate to have a high room with a view over Copacabana towards the fort. The room was clean and everything worked well. The bed was comfortable. As some others have noted the towels were a little thin but they were changed every day. Breakfast was served downstairs in the first floor restaurant - great selection and plenty of it. As with most hotels who use a machine for coffee it was warm and wet is the best that can be said but there was ice cold water and juices. We ate in the hotel both evenings we were there. The food was great. On the first evening we booked in the top floor restaurant and the menu we were given wasn't to our taste but we were allowed to order off the bar menu and that was great. The second night we ate in the bar on the ground floor off the same menu. The staff in both places were great. The concierge was very helpful We needed to check pick up times on the first day for a prebooked tour and he called the tour company for us to ensure we were given the right information Also very helpful with sending postcards. The doorman was also very helpful getting us a taxi and checking the fare for us before we got in. The only problem we had was with the air conditioning - it started leaking water when in use but reception were great and a service engineer was sent up very quickly and sorted it out. A great start to our tour of South America.

"Great Location "

Kalyan33, London, United Kingdom 20/03/2020

We stayed here for five nights. When checking in we had to wait for about 20mins as it was busy. They could possible open more counters for busy periods. The staff at reception where very friendly so where the door and lobby staff. We got given a room on the 27th floor. And was amazed by the view from the balcony. We could see the city, beach and sugar loaf. The rooms could do with some modernisation as there very dated. The breakfast is not really suitable for vegetarians as there was hardly any hot options for veggies. Just fruit, cakes and rolls etc. They offer a good service where you can take beach chairs and towels from level 0 to use on the beach. Which is like 2mins walk across the road. Even on the beach they have a section for hotel guests and offer umbrellas to, all part of the service. The location is very good as your centre of the strip with loads of restaurants nearby.

"Excellent first class customer service "

seanaT3193MT, Morden, United Kingdom 07/03/2020

I go to Rio de Janeiro a lot and always stay at othon palace mainly because of the spectacular views both from the pool rooftop but also from the room. The comfort is also great both in the rooms and in all areas of the hotel. I never usually write a review however I felt it was necessary as on my recent trip I experience first class customer service in particular from one of the receptionist/ concierge Wanderson. He looked after me a great deal during my stay always made sure I was perfectly accommodated and dealt with some minor issues I had very impressively always finding a fantastic resolution. He was very helpful also with reccomendations for activities and places to eat and drink. Best I have come across. Also one of the staff members in the resteraunt/ events department a Luiza was also extremely polite and welcoming and really puts a smile on your face. These little things can make a big difference in your holiday experience. Especially when you are unfortunate enough to experience a lot of rain. Do stay at this hotel.. great quality with great staff!
