"The best service in a hotel right on Copacabana"
Miramar by Windsor has hands down the best service staff I met in any hotel in Brazil. The only exception was one encounter at the reception. The breakfast buffet (with champagne!) is lovely, the staff almost overly attentive. A wonderfully friendly butler (Mariam?), housekeeping staff, bellboys, etc. The problems I had were simply with the room: mine […] was on the 5th floor (excellent sound insulation), and the light was blocked by the tall building nearby. The room never had enough natural light in the daytime. It was also rather small. Very few rooms face the ocean (as opposed to Windsor Atlantica, where I never had a room without a direct ocean view). That said, I would definitely return if I knew I could get a bright room with the ocean view :). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Truly Wonderful Hotel"
Everything about it was excellent--location, service, value. The people who work at the hotel are wonderful and eager to ensure that you enjoy your visit. The breakfast is outstanding. The rooftop pool offers a gorgeous view of all of Copacabana. One of the best places we've ever stayed. Simply a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Rio!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beachfront hotel recently remodeled."
Hotel is in great location. Walkable to Ipanema Beach, shopping, Fort Copacabana, and many restaurants. Hotel staff was amazing!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well positioned on Copacabana but near Ipanema"
Near the south end of Copacabana beach and Fort and easy walk across to Ipanema. Staff friendly, competent and helpful. Gave sound advice about touring the usual Rio sites and did not try to push "tourist" packages etc. Excellent breakfast at hotel and good choice of restaurants nearby. Roof top pool and bar with excellent views.Genuine Expedia guest review
The "outstanding ratings were justified. Clean facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Scenic location. Only negative- gym could be better equipped but did not have time to go to the gym anyway as Rio was too exciting. Hotel seemed recently refurbished. Room was big and very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for a runner"
Copacabana beach is great for runners; the views are amazing, the sand is friendly and the water nipping at my feet was delicious. Fabulous to return to a well located hotel with friendly helpful staff. The rooftop pool with its event horizon view of sugar loaf made it perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hotel in Rio"
Everything is brand new and sparking at this hotel on Copacabana beach. Impeccable service from the staff. The location is great as you are very close to Arpoador and only about a 15 minute walk to Ipanema. The check in is very pleasant and we were offered champagne, The rooms are done in tasteful tones of gray with marble bathrooms. Really comfy beds. […] I had a "partial view" room and could see the beach to the right if I looked out the window. The "ocean view rooms" have much larger windows and look right on to the beach. The morning breakfast is fantastic with great service! The icing on the cake is the beautiful infinity pool on the roof that looks over Copacabana! It's simply gorgeous. Like you are floating over the ocean. And the beach service is great with umbrellas, lounge chairs, water and on some days fruit salads. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is one of the best hotels with the best staff we have ever stayed in. It is beautifully decorated, has wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, is right on the Copacabana Beach and has a free breakfast buffet that has to be seen to be believed. Examples of special touches: welcoming champagne at check-in AND with breakfast! Roof-top terrace on 14th […] story overlooking the Copacabana Beach & Sugar Loaf with an infinite horizon pool and bar with snacks. Deliciously comfortable bed, linens and towels plus luxury fittings throughout. Staff who could not do enough to help from suggesting restaurants in the area to calling elevators for you, etc., etc., etc. Absolutely worth every penny!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel in Rio"
Rio is famous for not having good hotels but this is an exception to the rule. This hotel is expensive but you get good quality service and great hotel facilities (unlike other hotels in Rio). Breakfast was fantastic. Room and bathroom were big, clean and very well maintain. The view from the pool/bar area is awesome. Well location as well and the hotel […] staff was very nice and helpful. Totally recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Place to Stay in Rio"
This hotel is exceptional in every way, and my husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The pool area has an awesome view of Copacabana beach and Sugarloaf Mountain, and this aspect in itself makes the hotel 5 stars. In addition, the staff members are extremely helpful and go out of their way to ensure you have a good vacation. The breakfast buffet […] is outstanding, too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best of 3"
We were in 3 hotels in 12 days and this was the best. The rooms were very clean and attractive. The breakfast buffet was excellent with lots of fresh fruit and made to order omelets. The wifi was very slow in the room. Also the rooms should have a bureau. I had to live out of my suitcase.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pool was fantastic and staff didn't mind a little BYOB on the rooftop before midnight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just across the beach from Copacabana"
excellent staff excellent location right on Copacabana beach can't go wrong,Genuine Expedia guest review
The service and attentiveness of the staff was excellent. The pool and bar on the roof were great. The breakfast buffet was great, with exceptional service. The location was convenient and was right across from the beach. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels were supplied by the hotel on the beach. The room was very nice and clean. The only shortcoming […] was that there was not a lot of storage space for your clothes. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend the Miramar Hotel by Windsor.

"A wonderful hotel to spend my 50th Birthday!"
I loved the Miramar Hotel! From check-in when we were given Champaign, to our last day when we were given an extended check-out, it was a wonderful experience. The décor of the hotel is fabulous, the rooftop deck was really the way to go - we could see Copacabana Beach, but could enjoy our pool at the same time. The service was top-notch - from when […] I was surprised with a birthday treat in my room, to when the butler called to see if there was anything that they could do for us. The location was excellent. When I return to Rio, I will definitely stay at the Miramar. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First truely good hotel since Fasano"
The completely refurbished Miramar is the first actually new hotel in Rio since the Fasano in 2008. Its no doubt the best hotel in Copa now beside the palace.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was very nice. Great personnel. A glass of champagne on arrival. The room was large and very clean. The robe and slippers are a nice touch. Breakfast was fabulous. Omelets to fruits, waffles, cereal, meats, rolls and pastries and much much more. Also had mimosas included. Lovely place to stay while in Rio.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"will not recommend this hotel, poor service,/food"
Miramar Hotel by Windsor charged me over $100 for two collect call to my credit card bank in USA, I asked for the manager and he did not want to remove the charges, make sure to call your credit card company before traveling to Rio, this hotel is newly remodeled and the floor for this hotel is made of PVC plank , not sure why this hotel is number one […] in Rio Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A great hotel - right on the beach"
We went to Rio as a sort of "second honeymoon," and we absolutely loved our stay in the Miramar Hotel. The staff was fantastic, and several of them spoke very good English (which always makes things easier). We became friendly with each other by the end of our stay, and they helped us get the best rates on taxis, etc. The breakfast was honestly the […] best of my life, and I would highly recommend that it is NEVER missed if you're staying there. The rooftop pool was gorgeous, and never too crowded with a fantastic view of Copacabana beach. The little ice cream shop around the corner, Italia, was recommended by a staff person of the hotel, and we ended up going multiple times because it was so tasty. I have not a single negative thing to say about our stay there or the rate. If you are going to Copacabana, we highly recommend staying at the Miramar. We had friends that stayed at the Copacabana Palace just a little ways down the beach, and I liked the Miramar just as much (at less than HALF the cost!) Jairan, one of the bellhops, and Roberta, the restaurant hostess, became our friends by the end of our stay. The room was always clean, the shower was the best I've ever used, and there was no weird "hotel smell." The bartender at the beach bar right across the street was named Maxdonio, and he was really fun to hang out with. Every minute of our trip was fantastic, and the Miramar made sure that we ate and slept well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible service, slow internet"
Overall, a great stay, and I would stay there again. Wonderful service. They offer free internet but it's the slowest hotel internet I've ever used. Neighborhood is touristy, but with easy access to beaches, restaurants, and a grocery store.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5-Star service and comfort"
This place was wonderful. The staff was particularly impressive and not snobbish at all (which I often find at 5 star hotels). The rooftop deck has an amazing panorama of Copacabana Beach. In a city full of mediocre hotels, this place has just earned my business exclusively. My only complaint was that I did not stay longer!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room is good, but the staff needs some more training.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good, I'll be back"
I'll being traveling by North America and South America and this is the first time that the whole personal from a hotel were so king and helpful all the time with out expecting a tip. The breakfast is very good quality and with a lot of variety of food;Expressos, capuccinos and mimosas are available all the time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Miramar Hotel, A DEFINITE 5 Star and a Must STAY!"
My wife and I just got back from staying at the Miramar in Copacabana, Rio de Janiero. I must say that is was the nicest and most professional hotel we have ever stayed at. We chose this hotel after looking at all of the reviews on TripAdvisor and the hotel exceeded our expectations for sure! They offer breakfast, which is included in the price of your […] room, and it was outstanding, great selection of everything and an incredible staff. The location is great because the hotel is situated right in the middle of Copacabana Beach and is in walking distance to just about everything with the expection of the tours, of course. Being from the United States, speaking English and Spanish, the staff was very helpful in answering all of our questions and helping us plan everything we needed. I recommend this hotel 100%!!!

"Outstanding hotel next to the beach!"
Great hotel property located right across from Copacabana Beach. While checking in, I was greeted with a nice glass of champagne. The hotel employees are very nice, helpful and professional. My room was surprisingly spacious, stunningly beautiful with a partial view of the beach. I had breakfast and lunch in the hotel - both were excellent. The breakfast […] buffet is quite comprehensive, including a omelete buffet. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short Business Stay"
I stayed just two nights but the hotel was well situated and the rooms were comfortable. They we were very clean and well equipped. The WiFi worked very well with a free option and a higher speed paid option (although the free option was more than adequate for emails). The staff were excellent, particularly when I forgot my phone at check out. They […] had it downstairs in reception for me before I knew I had left on the docking station charging! I will certainly use them again as they are the best value for money I have found so far an I have no hesitation in recommending them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good experience at nice hotel -- partly marred by idiotic policies"
Let me say up front that this is a nice hotel with great location, very good service, friendly staff, excellent included breakfast, and beautiful facilities. It would be among my favorites in Rio, and for a price not so terrible considering the overinflated prices of even decent hotels on the beaches here. And I will probably stay here again. But when […] one is already spending USD 1000 on the room, it is not a pleasant surprise to get slapped at checkout with USD 30 in "mini bar charges" for the use of the in room coffee machine. While mini bar charges are normally concealed by design, this is the only time in over 50 nights in Rio this past year that I have been charged for the use of the coffee machine. None of the Pestana, Arena, JW Marriott, Praia Ipanema, Arpoador Inn, Mar Ipanema, Promenade Visconde, Vermont, Othon Palace, Orla, or Olinda hotels charged, so one wouldn't expect this hotel to either. And certainly not to gouge you at Starbucks prices! The only other downside was not letting me bring a friend up to the rooftop bar. This is a silly policy that some other hotels also have adopted, but it is annoying regardless. I would stay here again, but these things definitely left a sour taste in my mouth. Had the hotel knocked off some of the coffee charges based on good will it would have been appreciated. But now this hotel will be on the good list with an asterisk.

"Nice hotel in front of copacabana beach"
Stayed for 8 days. Room was ok. Had a partial view of the beach. Breakfast is great. Hotel appear to be newly done and is clean and comfortable. Am not sure it is a 5 star. Maybe 4 star. The minus is that it is pricy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice, modern hotel close to the beach."
The Miramar was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is very modern and was recently renovated so the facilities are very good. The free wifi was good and I was able to work during the stay. This trip was focused on business and the hotel was excellent with the exception of the lobby which is small and was not great for group discussions - but it is very […] nice. I would highly recommend the hotel for business or pleasure. For business meetings in City Center it is a 20 to 30minute cab ride so perhaps not optimal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic value for money"

"Best Hotel in Rio"
From the breakfast, to the service, the cleanliness, etc, etc. I stayed at a few places in Rio, nothing beats the Miramar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My partner and I spent 2 nights here in early June before commencing a World Cup tour. Lovely hotel , we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and only wish we'd allowed a few more nights here! In all the hotels that I have stayed at I have never come across as consistently high quality service as from the staff at the Miramar. Front desk and concierge spoke […] English very well, the buffet breakfast was lovely, and the rooftop pool has stunning views. Good location too, across the road from Post 5 on Copacabana beach and a walk to Ipanema. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"would I go back to this hotel? YES!"
I stayed at this hotel whilst I was in Rio de Janeiro this week. Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast buffet, an open air bar situated 16 storeys up with a dipping pool, sunning deck, and an excellent view of Copacabana beach. The room I stayed in was impeccable, complete toiletries in the bathroom, with complimentary chocolates placed on the bedside […] table every evening. There are recommended tours available for Rio and I did two of them and it was worth every penny! I recommend tearing oneself away from the hotel however and going for walks in the area. Impanema beach is within a short walking distance as are excellent local restaurants and shops. So, would I go back to this hotel? YES!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here!"
Dreadful staff knowledge service and attitude. Did not receive my Expedia booking so allocated a basic box room lower than rate paid for. Food absolutely dreadful - only mass catering buffets available or basic menu of fried foods with no vegetarian option - cooked off site. New place - absolutely soleless. Not a single wine available - unless you ask […] the lovely lady attending the bar. Avoid at all costs! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
