About Olinda Rio Hotel, Rio de Janeiro

1940s-style hotel across from Rio's Copacabana Beach

Steps from the sand

Located in the center of Copacabana Beach, steps from the famed shore, the hotel is also a 5-minute drive to equally well-known Ipanema Beach, and its neighborhood boutiques and cafés. You'll also be a few minutes' walk from multiple bus stops, connecting to the rest of the city.

Sugarloaf vistas

Staggering views are found by taking a cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain, a 10-minute drive away, and Corcovado Mountain's Christ the Redeemer statue is a 25-minute drive. For a simpler, green getaway, a 15-minute drive puts you on flora-filled paths at the Botanical Garden.

Breakfast, retro style

A free breakfast can help fuel a day of fun on the beach, and you can return to the hotel to dine on Brazilian or French cuisine at the elegant European-style restaurant Venezia. Your night could close with a drink at the antique 1940-style bar in the lobby.

Free WiFi, premium TV

Contrasting the Olinda Rio Hotel's old-school exterior, contemporary designs with dark-wood accents are found in the 98 air-conditioned guestrooms. The updates continue with free WiFi and minibars, and you can watch premium cable channels on your LCD TV.

Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

We have included all charges provided to us by this hotel. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.

Nice hotel in a superb location, good facilities, good breakfast food but short on toiletries. Our maid gave us only one shampoo for two people, although we stayed in a DeLux room and paid close to $400 a night for this room during the carnival days. After I complained to the management about it, she started giving us ... nothing! So every time we needed a shampoo, I'd have to call the front desk for assistance. So if you are going to stay in this hotel, make sure you bring your own toiletries. The rest was all good.

Great Ocean View
Great place and location to stay with an ocean view but you will not be happy there if you are single. But great family and couple environment.

Good Value, Great Staff and Location!
Olinda Hotel is an excellent value. The rooms are quite nice and the staff extraordinarily friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about them. The location is fabulous.There currently is a leak in the lobby ceiling that is somewhat unsightly but there is a lot of construction activity to correct it that actually involves work on several floors. This hotel was clearly a top tier establishment in its day that has been well updated, so if you appreciate the charm of older style architecture you will enjoy staying at this hotel. The only negative aspect is that while once you are logged in to the WiFi you stay connected you randomly periodically get disconnected from the internet with no sort of notice, so if you are counting on the WiFi to receive messages etc. it is quite unreliable because you are connected to their WiFi but not to the internet. The only way to know about this condition is to continually check your settings and log into the internet multiple times each day which is kind of a pain.
