    Othon Palace is past its prime.

    Othon Palace may (at one point in time) have been a fantastic hotel, but that is no longer the case. It is old and tired. The room was not clean, the sheets and curtains had stains and holes in them. The shower drain was clogged and the air conditioning didn't work very well. The included breakfast wasn't great either. This is not a nice hotel. I would not stay here again.

    Property needs a little remodeling. The AC unit was an issue during our stay, maintenance came to our room several times but was not able to fix it. We did notice some that appears to be black mold in the room as well.

    Lack of maintenance. I slipped on the floor as a result of a leak of the air cond. I nearly broke my head and bones. Ir was a miracle I did not though I now feel aches everywhere. No warm water on 3 days. It happens usually. No wake up call as they missed my correct room number, though it appears on the system when you call. I nearly miss my flight. The property is getting old and I do not see improvements

    Overall I liked the hotel. However, I didn’t like the fact that I had to use the “iron service” to have my clothes ironed.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Rio Othon is one of the few hotels that accepts large dogs in entire city of Rio de Janeiro and this is definitely a plus for them. Check in was very organized as you don't have to wait in line. they give a number and you can sit and waiting at the hotel lobby while waits. Also, we had an upgrade in our room which put us with very privilege view of Copacabana Beach. Besides the hotel offered us bed, diapers, 2 pots for our dog which makes us surprise and extremely happy. Lastly, upon the check up the employees lined up to say goodbye to my dog which make our stay perfect. Congratulations to this sweet staff.

    A solid choice of hotel

    The staff is great; very helpful. The views are great, as well as the fact that it seems to be the only hotel on the beach at Copacabana with actual balconies. The bedspreads were a little worn, and the toilet seat was in a mild state of disrepair. The breakfast buffet was very good. By my American standards I would consider it a nice budget hotel. I would certainly stay there again, but I was initially expecting something more luxurious. The location is very convenient. But overall it was a good deal.
