    Fabulous

    The staff were quite helpful. The room was very clean. You could go up to the roof for some great views of Copacabana beach & you could even see Corcovado (Jesus statue) in the distance. They have a pool & a bar with reasonable prices on the roof as well. The breakfast buffet has everything you could want & plenty of it. It was included in the price. The hotel provided free chairs, towels & umbrellas on the beach which is directly across the street. They have a guy who sets up your chair & umbrella for you. They also provide free shuttle service to the airport, which is not cheap normally. I went to see Paul McCartney when I was staying here & I was able to purchase a ticket through the hotel & also transportation to & from the concert. The hotel is great, but it is not cheap. The drawback is that they charge to use wifi. 50 reais, or 30 american dollars per day. That is ridiculous that you pay just under 300 dollars per night but they are charging an exorbitant amount for wifi when almost every other hotel is free for wifi. They need to change this policy. I did not use the wifi at that price.

    Charging 30 american dollars per day for wifi, when the price of the hotel is already expensive. It should be included.

    Fantastic, helpful and friendly staff where nothing was ever too much trouble. Fantastic Copacabana beach front location, opening the curtains every morning to that view was amazing. The breakfast was highly recommended in the reviews I read and I was not dissappointed, the eve buffet at the hotel was excellent and good value for money. The hotel is spotless and the downstairs bar serves the most amazing Caipirhinas!

    As majority of Rio hotels very expensive rates compared with a need for refurbishent plus poor design and finising of the rooms. But for day or two this is ok, for longer this hotel might be too claustrphobic. Very good breakfast, nice staff at the reception.

    Very close to the Copacabana beach front. Roof top with pool. Great view of the beach. Very good food. Staff speaks English Very good water pressure for showers. Safe provided.

    You have to pay for Internet. Noise. The walls of the rooms are poorly insulated. This is typical of all contruction in South America. Except for newer buildings. Buffet meals are on the pricey. No body lotion provided in rooms. Iron was dirty and damaged one of my shirts. A/C noisy.

    Excellent hotel in a fantastic location. The staff were most helpful and very accommodating. Breakfast was good a buffet and i would recommend staying here.

    The pool was rather small but it doesn't matter as the sea is just across the road!

    Fabulous

    Rio de Janeiro is pure fun. This hotel had a great rooftop pool / lounge overlooking Copacabana beaches and Christ the Redeemer statue. They even have their own beach chairs/umbrellas for you to use when you go down there. Breakfast was great; many options and delicious high quality food. Reception and bell desk were all fairly helpful.

    High price during Carnaval, but you get what you pay for here - an amazing location and views. The bartenders by the pool were a slow to bring out drinks. But service in Brazil is nowhere near as customer- friendly as in the U.S., generally. So don't expect too much anywhere you stay.

    Location.

    The r$50 cost per day for internet is excessive. The smokers at the pool ruined the air for others. The hotel is noisy because of the non- carpeted floors and light doors.

    I couldn't have been happier with everything at this hotel (especially since I was afraid to wander very far due to the high crime rate in Rio). The staff at the front desk was always very welcoming and cheerful. The rooftop pool was a perfect respite from the beach. The included buffet breakfast had great variety and the eggs were fluffy and delicious. The free shuttle back to the airport was an unexpected bonus. If I ever return to Rio (which is doubtful due to the very high cost, health and security risks) I would definitely stay at the Windsor Excelsior.

    I have no complaints. The weather was terrible during my stay but I can't hold the hotel responsible for that!
