The Windsor Atlantica is a good business hotel well situated on the Copacabana Beach. While taking the necessary personal security precautions, Copacabana Beach offers great opportunities for walking, jogging or just people watching. The hotel offers comfortable beds and a fantastic breakfast buffet from 0600 to 1030. The hotel is also situated next to a number of decent restaurants and...

We stayed in Windsor at our honeymoon. We were upgraded to one of their corner superior rooms which had a perfect seaview. You can easily walk along Copacabana and if you re strong enough, might end up in Ipenama. We had arranged our excursions beforehand so we didnt have to advise concierge. Breakfast was good.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is practically unbeatable (at least for our tastes).

There is free WiFi; albeit, on...

Nice hotel, great restaurant and food, room service is a little slow and they do not always understand you if you speak English, but they try hard. Nice location in the beach.

The hotel is pretty good. The room was very nice, clean and huge. It was very comfortable for all family. The breakfast was excellent and quite varied. The beautiful of Copacana is amazing! The only drawback is that the hotel is huge and there may be both queue at check-in as at checkout.

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
