Two Windsors reside on Avenida Princesa Isabel: an expensive hotel just opposite Copacabana and this more moderately priced one a few blocks away and on the opposite side of the Avenida. Even half the time, long-time Cariocas manage to wind up at the wrong Windsor. While the fancier Windsor is surrounded by expensive condos, this second location is a short...

Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel. Spacious and clean rooms without good view. Good breakfast, but slightly overcrowded. The pool is quite good, but small. The food in the restaurant is okay. The hotel is quite old. The surroundings include some dingy striptease bars and a few exchange offices. The copacabana beach is 5-7 minutes away. Overall, good place...

Stayed two nights on a G Adventures tour. The hotel is three blocks from Copacabana Beach, but the immediate neighborhood has little to offer except convenience shops and banks. It is not a shopping district or place you would want to hang out. While we didn’t experience any problems walking back to the hotel at night, we were careful to...

Decent rooms, and the reception staff were all nice and helpful. Seemed to be militant run, not the best of atmospheres, Not sure if this would pass for a 4 star in London, maybe a good 3 star. Food / breakfast was included and this was good.

Good location, close to Copacabana beach. Friendly staff. Very good Wi-Fi. The breakfast buffet was nice. The room was clean, and the cleaning staff was always very friendly. Just room was very small and looking to nowhere.

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.
