"Right on Copacabana Beach"
This hotel is right in the middle of Copacabana beach so a great location as you can walk to restaurants, shopping and Ipenema (which is a little more upscale). The room we got through hotels.com was in the way back on main floor and we asked to change but never did. The breakfast is great in the morning, everything fresh. The lobby was good. The hotel staff was attentive and the bell service people and door men were excellent.

"Great Value for Rio"
The front desk was extremely responsive and professional. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. The rooms are newly remodeled but it looks as if they ran out of money before they could redo the bathrooms. The free wifi worked much better than I would have expected. The location is a little dodgy but no more so than anywhere else in Copacabana or the rest of Rio. Leave your passport and other valuables in your room safe and you should be fine. All in all, I would say this hotel was an excellent value by Rio standards and would gladly recommend it to anyone that needed a place to stay while on business or pleasure in Rio.

"excellent Copacabana hotel"
Hotel is excellent in nearly every way. All of the staff are very nice, courteous, and responsive to all needs. There is a small bar and restaurant with a Saturday feijoada buffet that is discounted for guests and a complimentary caipirhina is also included. The hotel kitchen makes great meals as well. Rooms are a little small but clean. Location is very nice located right on the beach and 1 block from bus stops and 3 blocks from the metro station. An abundance of restaurants are everywhere to be found. There's also within 1 block a grocery store and laundomat. The only downside was that my friend had his cellphone stolen in a pretty bold pickpocketing right in front of the hotel. The staff said they knew the group of thieves and have reported them to police, but the police haven't done much to catch them. I'd stay here again.

"Beach view room"
From the moment I arrived, the hotel was very courteous to whether I spoke Portuguese, Spanish or English. The room was great, minus a couple of carpet stains on the floor. The view blew my mind away; it was very convenient to go out to the beach to have caipirinhas. The staff was helpful with information about rio and about tours. The tours are a little pricey, but if you have the money to spend then I recommend using the hotel to tour. The hotel food was excellent, I had the salmon and it was amazing (price is pretty much the same as US prices). Recommend if you have some money to spend and plan in coming to the World Cup.

"updated but some functional obsolescence"
the staff was very welcoming and friendly. they kept the premises on the interior clean and the renovations they were doing on the exterior was not distracting unless you were a late sleeper. I appreciated the mini bar and snack basket however although the room had some updates it lacked being completely updated. the mattress was old, carpet was dirty as well as the drapes the bathroom have some updates but still some of the old fixture were there. the windows were old and hard to open not to mention a lot of wind noise. There was also a stale smell probably from the carpet. I was a little disappointed for a four star Hotel but it was comfortable enough.

"Overpriced"
Locarion is convenient, hotel is located off of Copacabana beach. Rooms are subpar, beds are uncomfortable, shower is good with substantial pressure. Tours are offered with the hotel with the reception. Staff was helpful, however tours are over priced and you are much better off speaking to the tour company directly. This will save you 30%.

"Excellent Copacabana Hotel"
We spent 8 days in May 2013 at this WONDERFUL hotel. The first thing that impressed us was how clean the hotel was. Our room was spotless and newly updated. It was also bigger than we had been led to believe, a nice bonus. The real treat, though, was the staff. Although we travel a lot, we did not know one word of Portuguese. The staff was super friendly and helped us every single day: they allowed us to check in early and check out late, they helped us find a bank, set up tours for us, recommended restaurants, gave us excellent instructions for using the bus system (easier than we thought with their help!), set up transport to the airport and were always very friendly IN ENGLISH! We talked to them every day. The breakfast consisted of a fruit bar with 12 different kinds of tropical fruits, all fresh, and then several breads, cheese and scrambled eggs. Between the staff and the breakfast, this was a super value for the money. We did pay extra for the ocean view, so worth it. You can see futbol and volleyball fields right from the window and there were lazy mornings where we just sat by the window instead of going down to the beach right away. One drawback: The hotel is right on the beach and Av. Atlantica, the street that runs between the beach and hotel is very, very loud. I imagine this is a problem of any beach front hotel in Copacabana.

The unfriendly staff and the dirty room do not deserv the amount that they are ask for. We have booked a transfer to the airport through the hotel. The driver was unprofessional and unfrendly and he has been talking on his phone from the hotel to the airport and he was driving very fast! We have told home to drive slowly and not to talk on the phone while he drive but he just ignore and he was very agressive!! All in all our experience with Olinda hotel was very bad!!

Wonderful to open the Olinda Hotel room shades in the morning to look out at gorgeous, expansive, sandy Copacabana Beach and the magnificent blue ocean. A perfect way to begin the day.

This hotel is starting to get a little bit old. But you can not ask for a better location if you wan't to stay at Copacabana. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Good wifi coverage and it is free of charge. Large breakfast buffet included in the room rate. Excellent water pressure in the room. Hate it when you have to wait for ages for hot water and water i just barely coming out of the shower head. That was not a problem here.

"Disappointing for Property with So Much Potential"
This is my second time staying at this hotel. My first stay was exactly 2 years ago when the hotel was under different management. The change in management has not inproved the hotel. The good things about the hotel first - The location is excellent. Centrally located on Avenida Atlantica midway along the Copacabana beach - very convenient to everything and easy to get a taxi to other parts of Rio. The ocean view from the room is great! The hotel has good bones - nice classic architectural details - spacious lobby with ample seating for leisurely relaxation outside of the room. The not so good things - The hotel is showing wear and there is no indication that anything is being done about it. There is an unsightly section of the lobby that is draped in a plastic construction cover - who knows what's behind that. The room itself was spacious enough, but the horribly stained carpet, worn drapes, and unattractive bedding made it feel like a cheap motel room. Simple changes to the carpet, drapes, and bedding would make a huge difference. The bathroon is a very nice size although it could use some updating. I would love to stay at this hotel again, but I will look for other oprtions on my next visit unkes, there are some updates. The cost is too high for the property condition. Also the restaurant food quality could stand improvement. The steak I ordered for dinner my first night was the worst cut of meat I've ever had. I hope the hotel turms all of this around.

"Traditional architecture with modern amenities"
This is a gem of a hotel, right in the middle of Copacabana. The breakfast is simply awesome and the hotel staff are very attentive and friendly. Room was a bit small, but serviceable and fit in with the whole 1960's ambience. As if you might bump into Sean Connery or Peter O'Toole sitting in the bar, making small talk while scoping out the high-roller bad-guy sitting on the other side of the bar murmuring to his minions with a Bond Girl at his side..

"An Affordable Hotel in an Excellent Location"
I had been travelling over South America for three months and so booked this as a bit of luxury for the end of my trip. The hotel was in an ideal location right on Copacobana Beach and also close to the Subway for those wanting to travel the city. Other reviews focused on how the hotel needs to freshen up but the hotel seems to be taking this into consideration as I only saw a few areas that could do with a refresh. The rooms are comfortable with free high speed internet access. I would recommend booking a room with a sea view and Balcony.

"The right choice and would go again!!"
Amazing, so pleased we booked the Olinda. We spent 3 weeks trying to pick the right hotel for the right money, in the right location and we finally booked it the day we were due to arrive. Our room 1102 was a reasonable size with an amazing view over Copacabana Beach. We narrowed our choice down to 3 hotels and we are really glad we picked Olinda, which was a smaller, traditional hotel with lots of grand features inside. For me, this hotel is better than its pictures online. Yes its a little tired, but the staff were very accommodating and the breakfast was great. Just two tips, get that toaster that other guests have requested and a table and two chairs on the balcony would have been a real treat.

"Location Location Location"
We had a great time at Olinda Rio Hotel. The best thing is the location, it is right on the beach. The hotel is everything you need, a clean comfortable room. The staff were very professional and helpful, and at the main desk proficient in English. The building is a little older but fairly well maintained. I would say it is good value for money - it is not 5 star so there are a few things missing (e.g. no coffee in the room, no swimming pool or gym) but you can't expect that anyway when you are not paying 5 star prices.

"Good views of beach in a tourist part of Rio"
We booked the delux room overlooking the ocean. Lovely view from the 8th floor but sound might be an issue if you are on the 1st floor. On the downside, the rooms are in need of updating. There was no hot water early in the morning (6am) or late at night (after 10pm). The internet was very slow but you could download emails. On the plus side, Breakfast was very good. Staff were helpful in trying to sort out a dispute with a taxi driver who ripped us off from the airport in which the tourist police were called. Very clean rooms. Next time I would stay in ipanema as copacabana is too touristy for my personal tastes. However this hotel was quite good overall. Value for money is terrible during Carnival time but that is to be expected everywhere in Rio during this period.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, good breakfast selection and dinner in the restaurant was delicious. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, especially the driver we arranged through the hotel to pick us up from the airport. The location was good, few suspect people waiting on the nearby side street but then you have to expect that. The only negative I would say is that despite the description saying black out curtains this was not the case, so if you're expecting to have a lie in, don't! The sun rose at 6.30 each morning and therfore so did we!

"Beach front in Rio"
we enjoyed our stay. The room was large. The breakfast was the best I can recall. The staff was very professional and on the ball. The real draw to this hotel is the location on the best beach in Rio. The whole Copacabana area is just too much fun. We didn't realize how much we would be missing and had booked a hotel in another part of town, we switched to the Olinda after one night because we could see we wanted ocean front were everything is going on. The hotel is doing a major renovation so it is a little noisy with hammering and you might have to step around a worker but you will be at the beach or walking the streets anyway. I would stay here again. The breakfast goes until 11:00 which was a big plus. It is a wonderful buffet, not like the dry cereal and old apple you get in the states.

My stay was comfortable. I was in one of the rear rooms facing away from the beach (great for a good night's sleep). The room was one of the smallest rooms I've ever stayed in. That said, I think this room was probably an exception. The breakfast was good, the common areas quality and on the whole a nice hotel. Immediate location felt very safe and round the corner from the supermarket. The beach in front of the hotel was safe and hassle free.
