"Great location and hotel for the price"
This hotel is right on the beach. The wifi was free and reached the beach area; which was good since the additional costs of sorrounding hotels were ~$20 a day, but bad since it was very slow during busy times (anything after 5pm-1am). The service was great (they let us check-in early and were very helpful when we had questions). The free breakfast […] was great, just a little crowded. The tv was a fairly new flat screen and the mini-fridge had a lot of space for my groceries. The only glaring drawback was a broken AC. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"value for money"
Of a lot of hotels on the same street at this level, this is one of the best - relatively cheap (for Rio, which is expensive), decent size rooms, free wifi, good breakfast, right on the beach. It is somewhat fading glamour, but decent enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel, right on the beach. The staff were really helpful and very friendly. Excellent breakfast too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff not very accommodating or friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our Vacation started off with a No-Show for the Shuttle bus from the airport to hotel. When we contacted then we were told that they were too busy that day to organize a pick up, even though I sent an email to the hotel directly confirming this. Secondly; lots of communication problems for hardly anyone spoke any English...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfy beds. A freshing up of room would soon be neccessary. The management should think of investing in new towels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay - Value for money, great location"
The staff were very helpful and the hotel a great place to stay. The location is perfect on the beach front and it was good vaule for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We wanted a budget stay for 3 nights and got it with frills. Slightly old but full of character and by no means shabby. Nice room very good breakfast and helpful staff, great location right on the best beach I've ever been on. Recommend it and would love a longer stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"wait for a hot shower"
Can't be beaten location and great staff. Breakfast OK. The big drawback is the fact tghat you have to run the shower for at least 5 min before it is hot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Staff exceedingly helpful. The reception staff in particular were fabulous and went above their duty to make our stay pleasant in every way. We travel frequently and the customer service we received at this hotel was exceptional. I would not hesitate to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
After reading what others had written were not expecting much besides a great location and were very happily surprised. The location is what we payed for but we got also the friendliest staff we have ever experienced.We have traveled all over the world and stayed in much nicer hotels,but never in any with staff that went out of their way to be helpful. […] From the doormen, to the registration staff, to the food servers to the security, everyone had smiles and answered any questions or needs we might have. We will return to this hotel!

Good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay (12 nights ) in this hotel - Deluxe sea view room - large comfortable bed - large screen lcd tv - fine room service everyday - good toiletries - all the electrics worked well - no complaints. Breakfast was all the tropical fruits you could name and plentiful, hot dishes of cutup frankfurter with onions( could have done with a change […] ), scrambled egg, a good spread of cereals,bread,cakes etc, coffee, tea, juices. Beach towels and parasols were complimentary. We were unable to get a late checkout because the hotel was full but were able to leave our luggage securely locked and make use of the lobby toilet to freshen up and change for the airport.

"Olinda during Carnival"
Great space and superb breakfast. Right along the metro route made Carnival easy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tiny Tiny room. But great location."
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect location if you love the beach"
Great hotel. Rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. We had a fabulous view of the Copacabana Beach from our room. Felt very safe walking around late at night. Great breakfast included in the price. The only annoying thing about the hotel is that the internet went down once in a while. I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good to know"
I was surprised as how good value for money this hotel was .Hotels by the beach are a gem and you pay for location in Rio,.Staff was hyper helpful allowing us in before checking time and giving us late check out.,The hotel is still in the process of refurbishment but the ongoing decoration of the lobby did not interfere. It is a very traditional hotel […] ,therefore ,not for those looking for sleek modern .Breakfast is copious and the variety is unlimited. I will definitely stay there again and recommend it.

"Worth the extra money for a sea-view."
Really liked the Olinda. Perfect condition at Copacabana, feels safe around the area. Ipanema is a nicer area but its convenient enough. The staff were helpful, good English. The breakfast was great. Its worth paying the extra money for a sea-view room. Beds v comfortable and clean. A couple of gripes: leaking ceiling on last day - not sure what that […] was about.... also, when we checked in initially there was a bikini hanging in bathroom from previous guest (but the place was clean - housekeeping just neglected to remove this item!). finally, the staff at the olinda arranged an airport transfer (international airport) for one rate but didnt tell us they have a cheaper option for half of that price if you go by minivan with multiple pick ups, which a different staff member told us about the next day. We were happy to pay the higher rate but just wondered why we were not given both options... Nevertheless, I am happy with this hotel and would recommend. A sense of humour required for some of the hiccups! Perfect for price and location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice in Copacabana"
The location was good, room was nice, staff helpfull and spoke good english. The bartender in the lobby bar was very serviceminded and really put an effort in when mixing drinks, with excellent results. Good place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much better than others of its class"
Rio has lots of terrible, very expensive hotels, and of a number of a similar price bracket and location in which I have stayed, the Olinda Rio is much better. The rooms are a good size, the location great, the service is informal but attentive, the breakfast is plentiful and decent, and the decor of the hotel - faded antique charm - could do with a […] touch-up, but is infinitely better than some so-called refurbished competitors on the same strip. Would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bang in the middle of Copacabana. Internet was included in the price and was reliable and fast, not always the case when it's free. Would definitely stay here again for both business or for a holiday.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLEAN AND MODERN DIRECT ON THE BEACH"
I've stayed in many hotels in Rio and this is definitely the best. It's not old and run-down like most of the other 4-start hotels, our room (ocean view) was funished with neutral colors, linens carpets and drapes were new and everything was very clean. The breakfast buffet was basic but adequate. Reception staff were very helpful! We arrived at 7am […] and checkin isnt until 3pm. Christine checked our bags (with a claim ticket, not just thrown in a corner so anyone could walk out with them) and let us use the bathroom / lounge to change in to our beach clothes. She even offered us beach towels. I'd recomment booking the shuttle to the airport at 75BRL (2 persons) as a taxi from Copacabana to Galeão/ GIG could cost between 60 and 150 BRL even if you are brasilian and not a tourist (ask me how i know!?!) If you can get a good price, I'd definitely recommend staying here, but get a room on a high floor if you dont want to be woken up at 5:30am from the traffic. We were on the 6th floor and could hear it loud and clear! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unlucky with room"
Two visits close together - second time got 'an upgrade' (not asked for# - Room had a seaview and a desk/two chairs/an armchair in addition to previous room. BUT twin beds instead of a king - tiny 1-person shower #could have got 4 people in previous one# with nowhere to run when water temperature changed dramatically, tiny wash basin area with room […] for only one #other half with make-up# at basin/mirror #previous could fit three#, Vented AC which had no discernable way of regulation #previous had old-fashioned blower and hand control#. Old fashioned #stiff# sash window to sea-view, I suppose, qualified the room as an upgrade. But given that it was a two minute walk across the road if we wanted to see the sea, and we were a couple wanting to do things together the furnishing was not appropriate. We were returning for just one night, having been 'up-country'. More than one night and I would have asked for a 'down-grade'. Total of 5 nights - breakfast standard but staff seemed to be working to 'a plan' rather than responding to needs - eg - taking half a platter of food away to be topped up, while passing a queue of people at an empty coffee urn. I suppose it was just different staff having certain responsibilities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Atendimento impecável... Café da manhã excelente!!"
Foi nossa primeira vez no Rio de Janeiro e sabíamos que Copacabana seria nossa melhor escolha. Depois de algumas pesquisas optamos pelo Olinda Rio Hotel pela localização e por ter um benefício x custo excelentes. Fomos muito bem atendidos, é lógico que melhorias podem ser feitas, mas, nada que desmerecesse uma ótima avaliação para este hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Будьте внимательны и готовы к тому что в постели могут гулять ящерицы. Вода то холодная то горячая. Персонал отзывчивый и готовый помочь во всем. Расположение неплохое но безусловно хуже чем в скажем в копакабана палас.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super dejlig hotel, eneste minus var at brugseren ikke havde tryk nok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Achei que por ser um hotel caro e na Av Atlântica fosse bom mas me decepcionei totalmente. Ficamos quarto triplo, o banheiro tinha um plástico rasgado de cortina como Box. Chuveiro não esquentou, mofo nos azulejos do banheiro e no quarto. Atendentes falam muito alto e dava pra ouvir do segundo andar. Café da manha era bom, minha prima foi me visitar […] e foi impedida de entrar as 20h dizendo que tinha limite máximo de pessoas no quarto. Ora era quarto triplo e estava com meu pai e minha irmã. Depois mais tarde vi pessoas entrando sem identificar para fazer algo que não posso confirmar. Enfim, não vale o que cobram, estadia de 3 dias péssima.

Atendimento cortêz. Respostas precisas quanto a localização de alguns destino desejados, bem como eventos na região. Preocupação com a segurança do hóspede. De fato como outros comentaram o quarto é pequeno e fica apertado com as malas, mas nada que nos impeça de voltar. Cobram 10% sobre o consumo dos itens do frigobar, isso considero exagero, foi a […] primeria vez que me deparei com esta cobrança. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Muito boa! Foram duas diárias(de 15/05/2014 até 17/05/2014). Não foi excelente em todos os ítens porque o cofre digital do quarto não estava funcionando logo após o check-in(feito em 16/05/2014 às 5:30 h da manhã) e foi prometido que no máximo até 09:00 h da manhã iriam consertá-lo, o que não aconteceu até o check-out em 17/05/2014.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ótima localização, precisando de uma reforna"
Gostamos do hotel, a localização é ótima, o serviço atencioso e o cfé da manhã muito bom. Achamos, entretanto, que o hotel está precisando de uma reforma, o mobiliário está meio velho. O preço nos pareceu exagerado em relação ao qque oferece.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Umgebung gut - Hotel naja"
Obwohl wir schon um 7 Uhr früh da waren vorher angefragt hatten, ob wir früher einchecken könnten und Leute schon dann am auschecken waren, hatten wir erst um 14.45 unser Zimmer bekommen. Dies war zum Innenhof, mit Klimaanlagen und Essensgeruch, da kann ich einfach keine sehr positive Bewertung abgeben. Die Zimmer sind nüchtern eingerichtet, aber länger […] will man sich darin nicht aufhalten. Frühstück war gut, aber es fehlen Räumlichleiten, wo man sich mal nett hinsetzen kann, zum Unterhalten oder Lesen ... Der Lobby und Barbereich ist hierfür schlecht geeignet. Fitness oder swimmingpool fehlen auch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
