Two days of fun and a week of work based at this hotel, for a modern hotel it is shabby, soap dishhanging off in the shower, missing and faulty lightbulbs in the room and the cleaning levels poor. Pool on the rooftop has a stunning view if you can put up with the noise and the smell of the airconditioning....

This is clearly either the training school for the 7 other Windsor hotels in RIO or it is where the poor staff and management are located. We dealt with the reception on 5 occasions and each time except for a restaurant recommendation were hopeless or just bluffed the wrong information. They were friendly but it seemed it must have been...

I must admit I was relieved to end my 2 weeks trip and this great hotel. I stayed at the Windsor Barra for 5 nights. It's located just by a clean beach, you only need to cross a road. They have a private area on the beach with deckchairs and parasols. The sea over there is quite rough though and...

Reviewed 22 January 2013

The hotel is very good, the service is excellent but Barra da Tijuca is far from the tourist points in Rio de Janeiro. A football team and a TV station uses the hotel very often, sometimes the lobby gets a little louder. Very good for a work trip hotel.

If you are staying here because you are attending a conference it is Ok but it is not good for vacation. Everything seems to need updating and renovation. Rooms were really medium and the atmosphere was depressive, breakfast was very medium with a limited selection of foods and what I hated was the bad internet connection, I paid a lot...

I stayed at the Windsor Barra Hotel for 4 nights in October while traveling on business. I was attending a conference at RioCentro and this hotel is located about 15-20 minutes away (by cab).

I stayed at the Windsor Barra for nearly a week because of a conference. The rooms were okay though not very modern. The WiFi wouldn't work despite the hotel charging a steep amount for internet connectivity. There was a token fitness centre with only 2 of the 3 running machines working. The main issue is that the Hotel is a...

I stayed at the Windsor Barra for a few days of business. The rooms seem a bit outdated and decoration is all a bit pale (beige), also there are still old-fashioned (and small) TVs. But there is nothing really bad either, bathroom is ok, and my shower worked very well, which was a nice change from my previous (different) hotel....
