"NICE SURPRISE in Copacabana"
After trying many many different hotels in the area in subsequent visits, this one will be my choice from now on. Very good service, location and staff. A bit pricey, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were extremely small, and despite the hotel marketing there is not roof-top "pool". There is a sigle square of water, equal to the size of a large jacuzzi in the U.S.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best hotel staff ive ever seen"

"great reception desk staff!"
Great hotel with excellent location! Neighborhood seemed safe to walk around during the night and day. The beach is about 30 seconds away, grocery stores, banks, restaurants, bars are all within 1-2 minute walk. The reception desk staff was awesome, including Claudio, and they are very helpful with tours, directions reservations, etc (except for the […] reception guy who works the night shift - he wasn't too friendly if you come in late). The breakfast is decent, with several fruit and breakfast-type items. Rooms are comfortable and you can't hear any street noise, allowing you to have a full nights sleep. Wi-fi only available in the lobby or pool area. In all, great hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel next to the beach."
This was a good hotel slightly on the expensive side for the facilities it was providing. Internet in the room but not wi-fi. Use a laptop to set up a hotspot wifi instead. The last two nights of our stay there was a water stoppage for maintenance, or at least that's what was claimed by the front desk. Not the most astute staff, but that is everywhere […] in Rio. They are friendly and that is also prevalent everywhere in Rio. Tipping helps with that as well. Overall a good experience since the hotel ahould not be the focus of your stay in Rio. Considering how expensive hotels are in Ipanema, Windsor Martinique was a decent choice for Copacabana. Beach is always better and cleaner in Ipanema. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very nice hotel. definitely recommend staying there when in Rio. Very affordable price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget Type Hotel"
Good Location..small, plain vanilla type hotel..A/C did not work in our room and with the temperature in the 90's outside we experienced a very uncomfortable night..Breakfast Buffet was best part of our stay..Very Good Selection of food..Front Desk very helpful..a 3 Star hotel, at best..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel, close to the beach, shops, eating......PERFECT STUFF!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is not worth the money. The wifi only works in the lobby,restaurant, and upstairs by the pool. You need an internet cable in your room. The hotel staff was uncooperative and lied about their luggage storage options and then lied about the wifi being available in the hotel room. They changed their mind when we went to complain and then claimed […] that it was only available in certain areas of the hotel. The rooms are small. The only good thing was the breakfast buffet and the location. It is a block from the beach. If you do end up here, try out the fish restaurant they have across the street. The food there was amazing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel about a block from the beach great breakfast included in rateGenuine Expedia guest review
The manager refused to give us a larger or acceptable room size for our $1300. It was 10 by 10 and another couple suffered the same problem...A very small room facing the backyard. When I requested a larger room, Mr. Eden (the desk clerk) actually had the audacity to tell me it was the largest one in the hotel. I talked to the other Black couple who […] were experiencing similar problems and Mr. Michael told me he had to call his travel planner and it was changed and upgraded immediately. It did bother me as we were the only two Black people registered at the hotel and both given lesser rooms. I have been with Espedia for over 20 years and this is my first such experience. I did inform the director, Mr. Vicente (in charge while regular was on vacation) and prepared a statement which I will share later with Espedia.

"Great, reasonably priced base for Rio's beaches"
Very happy with the hotel. Sorry we did not stay there the first 2 nights in Rio. The room had all the amenities we desired, location was good, staff helpful, friendly and spoke good English.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A very nice hotel but rooms are very small, right by the beachGenuine Expedia guest review
"Basic in a good location"
No glamour. It's all serviceable; no Internet in the rooms. If you want copacabana, the metro is not far and there are plenty of basic places to get fast food kind of food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Brazilian Hotel"
Nice, small hotel for the price and 1/2 a block to Copacabana.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent choice, and best location!"
Is an excellent choice and have a amazing quality cost relation, the location is excellent close to Ipanema in a very good point of Copacabana, the police is very close, is a very safe place to stay with a lot of restaurants close and the night vendors posts on the beach excellent to buy some souvenirs. The breakfast are rellay good and complete and […] the service of the staff is excellent. Always are taxis in front of the hotel. I definitly would stay again!. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near Copacabana Beach"
Good value for the money. Front desk staff are first rate--helpful in multiple languages. Excellent location about a block from Copacabana Beach and within walking distance of Ipanema. Compact, but well-designed room. Good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in Rio but ..."
The first impression is a good nice hotel, conveniently located few meter from Copacabana beach. The room is relatively small but does the trick at nights - you are there to rest. Depending if you kept windows open or close, you may hear the street noise and all what it entangles. Bathroom is comfortable and clean. The elevators and halls are well maintained […] and surveillance cameras are everywhere so giving the impression they take safety very seriously. Breakfast was included and it was very good. Staff was very friendly and made our stay quite enjoyable. I am venturing to score the hotel a 3.5 stars due to the following: the bed was stiff (it was not an orthopedic mattress) it appeared that you were lying down over springs and wires more than over a bed. Nevertheless you can crash over and wake up with no body aches. The second thing is that wifi is not available in rooms and guest floors (you either connect in the lobby or in the pool area) since I don't carry a pc with me, the LAN cable was useless for me. There is room for improvement for the Hotel since World Cup is coming and the torcedores (AKA fans) from all over the world will be hitting Brasil in no time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed here before. The service at the front desk always seem to help in any way they can.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BEST FRONT DESK STAFF IN RIO"
Rio is a beautiful city. This was our 2nd visit in 2 months. Our first hotel was downtown and we took the subway3 times a day. This hotel was 1/2 a block from the beach and the Front Desk Staff is 2nd to none. The customer service is first rate. The room was clean, the view was great and the free breakfast was the outstanding. I will be booking this […] hotel again in 2 months and every time I visit Rio.

"Geared to the Business Traveler. Solid Service"
The hotel itself is conveniently located 11/2 blocks from copacabana beach.The rooms are basic, meaning it has dryer, mini stocked bar etc. Drawback was that room needed to be reprogrammed everytime we used it.Also there is no wifi in the rooms only in the lobby which is very small. The breakfast that they provide is well above average, with fresh fruits, […] smoothies, pastries, eggs, potatoes and more. Anyone complaining about this should not take their review seriously. The street where the hotel is located is very well trafficked and seemed safe. We were out pretty lateand there was staff outside of sister hotel accross the street and our hotel staff was still manning desks. The staff was very accomodating to all request and provided us adapaters for our electronics. Would stay again if needed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value and great location"
This hotel was perfect for my husband and our friends! It is at a great location, right by Copacobana Beach and a nighttime flea market. If you need to use the bathroom while you're at the beach, you can even easily walk back to the hotel. The concierge was very friendly and helpful. They let us check-in early, store our bags, and refer us to great […] restaurants in the area. They also helped us book an amazing day sight-seeing touring, where the bus comes and picks you up right by the hotel. The rooms themselves were comfortable and clean. Best of all was the free breakfast buffet--delicious foods and at least 5 fresh-squeezed juices every morning. Only criticisms are that the wifi is only available in the lobby and the gym is quite tiny (but then it is much more fun to work out by running along the beach than in the gym). Would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel for the price in the area"
I've stayed at a few around there and it is always great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location. Nice breakfast"
This hotel is almost right on the border of Copacabana and Ipanema. Not quite on Ipanema. It's a good five block walk before you are in Ipanema. The nice thing is that you have access to both the Copacabana and the Ipanema beach within walking distance. The rooftop is nice though the pool is a joke. It's the size of a big hot tub but it's not a hot […] tub. Basically useless. The "gym" is also tiny. I think it has two treadmills and one more piece of equipment and the room is just big enough to house those three pieces. The breakfast is great with lots of fresh fruit juice and also fresh fruit. Eggs, ham cheese, lots of pastries. They also have a couple of local items. You only have wi-fi in the lobby, restaurant, or the rooftop. Internet in the room is by network cable. The lobby is also tiny with just a small living room furniture set. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but not great!"
The people work so much that they make noise in the hall ways. If you like to wake up early, then this won't be a problem. The higher prices rooms were in a location where there was no noise though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient hotel in Rio"
The location of the hotel is quite convenient -- just a very short walk to the Copacabana beach. My room was a little small but the bed was comfortable and after all I did not come to Rio to spend all my time in a hotel room. The little restaurant in the hotel was surprisingly good. Service my the staff was superb at all points -- friendly and efficient. […] One thing seemed a little odd: there is no wireless Internet connectivity anywhere in the hotel. They do have a wired connection in the rooms and cheerfully provided an Ethernet cable for me to use, but I had not packed the adapter needed for my MacBook Air (which does not have an internal Ethernet connection) so I had to go to a shopping center some distance away by taxi to purchase the needed adapter.

"Windsor Martinique not as good as you think"
Although the location is convenient (Copacabana and Ipanema beaches very accessible), the room was very small, extremely spartan, and the one small window we had over looked a rectangular space analagous to an air shaft and the view was that of other walls. The place is clean, breakfast acceptable, and the staff (with one exception) was very nice. Really […] a depressing experience. Luckily had been to Rio many times before and knew the city and the neighborhood well enough to be out of the room for most of the day. Really horrible, AND to top it off, WIFI is ONLY AVAILABLE in the lobby and by the rooftop pool, which by the way is not much bigger than a very large bathtub! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel to stay at."
The hotel is good. We stayed only 1 night and it was quite comfortable. The breakfast was good too. Really close to the Copacabana beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is one of the best in Rio from a price value perspective. The location is excellent- less than a block away from the beach, restaurants, supermarkets and money exchange next door or within a block. The night market is very close to this hotel, so we could stay at the night market and then walk back without fear of walking through dark streets. […] The rooms were very clean, including the bathrooms and the buffet breakfast with several fresh fruit juices, fruits among other things were fresh and excellent. We were a group of 15 people with 9 rooms for 7 nights and did not have a single complaint. The staff at the front desk spoke good English and were very pleasant and helpful.

"Very good hotel, excellent location"
Windsor Martinique is 50 m walk from Copacabana & 15 minute walk from Ipanema. Beach at the end of the street is nice and clean. 1 block opposite way you have small supermarket, bank, restaurant,etc. Location is excellent & safe. Police have a small station at the corner. Taxis always outside. Night souvenir market on some nights two blocks east. Many […] cafes to grab a snack while at the beach. Hotel staff Philipe, Claudio and the lady (forgot name) speak perfect English and are super friendly. Took tour recommended by hotel (Rio Express). Saw Corovado, SugarLoaf and many city sights in one day without being rushed. Room and bathroom were not huge, but clean. Bed is firm by American standards. Pillows not great-flat and synthetic. If you are pillow snob,bring your own. Room AC was cold & you could optionally open window. My room faced the rear so no view except of the back of other buildings. Hotel gym has 2 treadmills/2 bikes in a cramped space. Pool on roof is tiny,but did not care since came for beach. Small bar near the pool, but not open in the evening. You can bring your own drinks up there and enjoy the evening breeze in private. Internet included, but need a wire in the room. Wi-Fi in lobby & roof. Nomangue restaurant across the street was good and not expensive. 2 outdoor restaurants past the Golden Tulip were good price and food. Breakfast at the hotel was a good buffet with outstanding service.Overall great service, great location and very good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place with managed expectations"
It was a very good hotel. I have been working in the outer Sao Paolo region for 2 weeks and staying in an awful hotel with poor services and subpar rooms. Windsor Martinique is absolutely a 180 degree reversal. Rooms are great for the value. Perhaps more is expected by some for the price paid, but with the right expectations (in a foreign country, very […] touristy area, and only half block from the beach), you quickly realize how much of a value you get. Hotel Guest Services all speak good english and attempt to help you as much as possible. My only complaint is that the services that they provide are somewhat lacking for the image they try to bring. I wanted to rent a bike but they did not have an agreement in place with a local shop so they could only give me directions to the nearest bike shops for me to rent myself. I wasn't mad, but I did lose a few hours from my early morning plans because all the shops were closed until 10 AM. They did their best with what they had. Again, you understand you are getting a good value for most aspects of the hotel but perhaps you do not get the complete services as you would with a Marriott or Sofitel. But you pay half the price too. So your choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pleasantly surprised !"
Room was clean and nice looking- view was terrible but I didn't spend much time in the room. Staff was efficient. Breakfast was amazing everyday and this hotel is about 1 block from the beach. Rio is expensive but for the price you are in a great location / even a small grocery store around the corner. Lots of things you can walk to if you wanted !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent, well located hotel"
Well located, simple and clean hotel. Rooms not very comfortable though, for example: hard low budget bed. I would recommend it as a business like hotel, definitely not a romantic or very cozy spot. Definitely overpriced as are all hotels in Rio.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"WIld goose chase"
At first I thought upon entering this is a second rate hotel- on a side street- small lobby - very small elevators-a dormatory style room. The breakfast bar is ok but the matri de is snooty, no hello- the plates are very small- they don't really want you to eat it. the waiter took my plate and coffee. I was not finished. I asked if there was a computer […] business cener- the clerk said no, where is your computer/phone. I said I did not have one, Is there one in the neighborhood. He sends me to a photo shop I follow his directions. no photo shop. I come back and confront him. He says it does not open until 9am. it's 830. Why didn't he tell me this at first. Another staff lady butts in and lectures me. They all talk portugese rudely knowing I don't understand. They have a certificate of excellence from trip advisor on the wall. What a farse. Don't stay here unless you speak Portugese. The hotel is deficient in many ways and that is why you pay a little less. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location and very good breakfast"
The location of this hotel is incredibly convenient with only a block to the beach. Breakfast is very popular with the guests and had a good selection. One thing I would advise is that not every room has windows that even face the outside of the hotel. My only window was facing an inner courtyard so I saw nothing but brick walls. Overall though this […] is a nice hotel for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Its good but the lobby is small. The Wi-Fi don't work in the room. You have to go down to the lobby to connect to internet. It's a good hotel a few walks to Copacabana and tons of shops & restaurants around the corner. The breakfast was very good and plenty of selection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location for a vacation"
The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel is located less than 1 block from the Copacobana Beach, restaurants and grocery stores and is much less expensive than hotels that are right on the beach. Breakfast is included in the room rate, which is always nice and the food was good and fresh. Take advantage of the service they offer to return to […] the airport. There is a charge but it is much less than what you will pay a taxi service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The room and the rest of the hotel were clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. The pool is very small almost like a box. However who needs a pool when a beach is a minute away. Their restaurant was pretty good. Lots of good places to eat around as well. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"High qualiity hotel with super internet"
Very high quality room with a sliver of a view of the beach. Wired internet was fast enough to support skype calls. Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of fruit, bacon, sausage and eggs, plus all the other niceties. Freindly and helpful staff. Parking was about $12 per day. Although nicely situated close to the beach, there were very few restauants […] or bars within walking distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

A short 2 minute walk will get you to Copacabana beach. There is a supermarket and several eateries along Av Copacabana. Hotel will provide you with umbrella and towels for the beach.

Very decent buffet breakfast with four hot items, […] selection of breads, fresh fruit juices and tropical fruits (very sweet!). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Place to Stay"
Stayed for 6 nights. Despite the reputation of Copacabana, the area near this place is actually quite nice. Copacabana beach is right down the block and Ipanema beach is only about a 10 minute walk. Staff here is great (and speak decent English). The rooms and elevators are kinda compact; but, the rooms are still fairly comfortable. The hotel restuerant […] wasn't very impressive; but, compared to the average food vendors in the surrounding area, it was acceptable. Overall, our experience here was fantastic.

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel. It is spotless in all aspects. Staff is friendly and on top of everything. Not so used to two little beds as an American, but I guess that is the standard there.
