"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

"A Great Hotel in a Perfect Location"
We really enjoyed our stay. From the time we first checked in until we left the staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is delicious! Breakfast is bountiful. We also enjoyed several dinners and lunch by the pool. We will recommend the hotel!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
I thought the breakfast was wonderful, the service was great (Pitor and a few others whose names I cannot remember were fantastic), the rooms were very nice. The only suggestion would be to have a list of things guests can do when it is raining.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stellar Customer Service"
The hotel staff was amazing. Every employee I saw was friendly and accommodating to requests. Many of them also spoke English. The hotel room was very clean, comfortable and earth-friendly.Genuine 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

"Superb location, facility, service"
Your ReviewMiramar Hotel by Windsor Three things that have surprised me about this hotel. first located right in front of Copacavana beach second, boutique hotel like room & facility. Roof top swimming pool and bar with panoramic view of Copacavana beach shore make this place unique vista point.

"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

"Excellent suggestion from Expedia"
Top notch hotel without brand recognition. It was better than both Brazilian hotels (luxury hotels) where I stayed. Staff is excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Cannot find fault with this hotel. Rooms clean and well appointed. Pool area great with a stunning view. Breakfast has as many variations as you can imagine. Staff are super helpful and polite. They also accommodated us with both an early check-in and a late check-out. I really cannot speak highly enough of this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location"
Only stayed one night but wish it could have been longer. Hotel is either new or newly refurbished. Facilities maintenance and cleanliness is very good. Lobby area is very nice - with complimentary champagne offered upon arrival. Buffet breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Room was very nice - very comfortable and good amenities. Bathroom was […] a little smaller than expected - some extra counter space, or at least a shelf under the vanity would have been helpful. The in-room internet was very reliable and very fast - thank you Miramar IT Department!!! On the whole, all the staff were friendly and helpful, in particularly the bellmen - they were really great :) My only other observation is that all hotels I've been to in South America seem to combine the Front Desk with Concierge Desk, which can make for a very long wait to talk to someone if all the staff are tied up with Concierge questions. But on the whole, this is a great hotel and I would definitely recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing stay in Rio."
We stayed at the Hotel Miramar by Windsor in Rio for 7 nights in Nov. The hotel definitely has the service of a 5 star. We enjoyed the complimentary glass of champagne as we checked in the hotel. The rooftop pool and view were fantastic. The buffet breakfast was incredible and the service was amazing. The staff was great and extremely helpful regarding […] restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. No need to take tours from hotel as they are very pricey and can be done easily on your own. The room was lovely, very spacious and well appointed. I loved the kingsize bed and the bathroom. The toiletries provided were from Occitane in France. The hotel is well situated and is across the street from Copacabana beach. It is great to have a beach service with chair and umbrella. Hotel is close to great shops and restaurants. If you are in Rio on a Sunday make sure you visit the Hippie market ( unique artisan products) in Ipanema a 15 min walk. We loved visiting Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. What a great trip.

Not bad but hotel is old fashioned. Breakfast is good but other meals are poorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
from the moment we arrived and Pedro gave us an early check in together with a glass of champagne we knew we were somewhere special. The rooms are excellent with really comfy bed and good air conditioning .. would have liked some flannels and tissues but otherwise perfect. The roof top pool is brilliant, and we had a light meal there in the evening […] a perfect way to end a day's siteseeing. The breakfast was excellent, as was the service. All the staff were very helpful and we used the hotel taxi to take us to the airport. We will definitely be staying again and fo longer next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very impressive new hotel. Attentive staff though reception area can get crowded. Excellent room (I was upgraded to a wonderful suite) though not perfect (usual Brazilian plumbing limitations - here a poorly positioned shower and a disappointing lack of balconies). Lovely location and design for pool and bar on roof but limited space meant loungers […] were soon occupied and staff insisted some were "reserved". Excellent restaurant - dinner and breakfast.

"Excellent Breakfast and Service"
Excellent location, service and hotel condition. Not cheap but hotel is refurbished to great standard. Breakfasts are exceptional and staff offer outstanding service. Would definitely recommend and stay there again without hesitation. The rooftop pool and bar area offers spectacular views and tip is to get there early for a seat as it's well used by […] the patrons. Our only negative is that we got charged about Real $20 on our credit card after checking out, in error. Initially the hotel indicated there was no charge and when we sent them proof of the debit on our credit card, they indicated it would possibly be for consumption of items from the minibar in the room. We confirmed we didn't consume anything in the room and they reversed these charge. Take care they do not charge for items in error. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location but staff were rude- no apologies for room not being available despite 2hr after normal check in time, at front desk overlooked repeatedly for Portuguese speaking guests. Check out transaction completed without a word being spoken.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were extremely helpful upon arrival and with restaurant reservations during our stay. The room was lovely and very clean. The location is on copacabana beach front which is beautiful and it is a short walk from ipanema and shopping centres. The breakfast was immense, a vast and diverse buffet with competent staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great! The breakfast was excellent. The amenities were also all that I could ask for. But what really made this for me was the service at the front desk and from the butlers. i have some special requirements when I stay over the weekend and this hotel went out of it's way to make me feel comfortable. I would definitely stay again. My […] only complaint was that I did not have a couch in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Miramar Hotel Rio"
Overall an enjoyable stay. Front desk staff were 1st class- well informed, well spoken,friendly and helpful at all times. Room and bed were huge with idyllic views. Daily cleaning was impeccable. Restuarant staff were friendly and professional. Great choice for breakfast, less choice for lunch and dinner but clean, well presented and perfectly cooked. […] Views across road to beach and Sugar Loaf were fantastic. Expensive during Carnival Week but to be expected, The only downsides were the cost of the laundry service, the carpets on the corridors were very worn but clean, the ensuite needs modernising although again spotlessly clean. We recommend this hotel and will probably stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Realmente un 5 estrellas. Ubicado frente a la playa de copacabana, sólo hay que cruzar la calle, en la playa tienes a disposición quitasol y sillas y además toallas, y te llevan fruta de vez en cuando y toallas frías para refrescarte. La habitación impecable, limpias y amplias. Productos de primera calidad en el baño, marca L'Occitane. Camas grandes […] y confortables. El desayuno buffet muy completo y de calidad. La piscina es pequeña pero con una vista impresionante a toda copacabana. El único detalle es que el internet wifi gratuito es muy lento, pero si necesitas hay computadores en el primer piso o puedes pagar el wifi rápido, pero creo que por el precio del hotel deberían ofrecer mejor conexión gratuita. Fuera de eso volveríamos de todas maneras. Gran hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Todo de primer nivel"
Fuimos a este Hotel 4 dias a mediadios de Febrero de 2014. Veníamos de estar en Buzios 8 dias. Viaje con mi esposa y un bebe de 1 año y 2 meses. Nos pareció todo de primer nivel, la atención es de primera, las instalaciones son excelentes y muy bien mantenidas, definitivamente vale lo que uno paga (siendo que era un poco mas caro del presupuesto que […] teniamos). Nos pusieron una practicuna para la bebe. Como no teniamos cómo calentar agua para la leche de la nena, en todo momento pedíamos o que nos calentaran la comida o que de nos trajeran agua caliente para prepararle la leche. Siempre con excelente predisposición y sin problemas. El hotel esta enfrente de la playa. Y en la misma playa tienen una persona que te entrega reposeras y sombrillas sin costo. Además que cuida a la gente. La zona donde esta ubicada nos pareció ideal, ya que hay todo tipo de negocios y restaurantes cerca. Personalmente nos gustó mas Copacabana que Ipanema, siendo que todo el mundo nos habia dicho lo contrario. Finalmente, quiero aclarar que los gastos dentro del Hotel me parecieron muuuuy caros. Tanto tomar un trago en el Lobby, y ni hablemos de comer en el restaurante del Hotel, fuimos 1 sola vez, despues de pedir la cuenta, me quedé espantado, y decidí que iba a ser la última vez que comíamos ahí, aun que TODO fue excelente, no contabamos con un presupuesto como para comer muchas veces ahi. Por cierto, sin palabras la comida....Realmente, un lujo! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location at Copacabana"
Nice hotel just on Copacabana (posto 5). The hotel offers umbrella and chairs on the beach. Very good breakfast! Nice terrace, but the staff plays awful dance club music which is fine at night at a dance club, but not for sitting and enjoying sunset... The pool is small and water was not very fresh or clean (oily feeling). Hotel staff was great, but […] staff at the terrace bar a bit lazy and unattentive. I would give staff a 5 rating if it weren't for te pool staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Viiden tähden palvelua"
Varasin Windsor Miramar hotellin, koska se oli arvioitu Tripadvisor ykköseksi Rio de Janeirossa. Riossa hotellit ovat poikkeuksetta hintavia, mutta löysin meille hyvän huonepaketin. Matkassa 2 aikuista ja 2 lasta. Saimme loistavaa palvelua koko matkan ajan. Pärjäsimme parivuoteella ja lisävuoteella. Kylpyhuoneessa oli poreamme, 2 lavuaaria, wc ja bidee. […] Ainoana miinuksena, koko hotellissa oli todella hidas nettiyhteys, se oli ilmainen. Ilmastointi oli tarpeen, toimiva ja säädettävissä. Kattoterassin uima-allasalue oli ihana. Allasalueelta oli unohtumattomat näkymät Cobacabanan rannalle ja läheiseen favelaan, Hotellin edessä, Cobacabanan rannalla on hotellilla oma palvelupiste, tarjolla ilmainen rantatuoli, aurinkovarjo, vettä ja hedelmiä. Myös suihku oli saatavilla. Ranta-alueelle tultaessa pitää ylittää 2 vilkasta rantakatua. Myös Ipaneman ranta oli kävelymatkan päässä.Hotellin lähellä on lukuisia erilaisia ravintoloita ja kauppoja. Loistavat bussiyhteydet ja takseja aina saatavilla. Hotellin pikkolot hoitivat tarvittaessa kuljetukset ja auttoivat hymyillen kaikessa, heiltä sai myös rantapyyhkeet. Vastaanotosta saimme hymyillen hyvää palvelua. Suosittelemme hotellia, ehdottomasti! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at Miramar during the Christmas time and I have absolutely no complaints. The staff was wonderful and ever so helpful in everything. Only minor was that the WI-FI was a bit slow and the gym lacked proper equipment. The roof top pool was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
