About Royal Rio Palace Hotel, Rio de Janeiro

4-star hotel with rooftop pool near Copacabana Beach

By Ipanema's shores

An 8-minute walk from the Royal Rio Palace Hotel puts you on the buzzing sands of Copacabana Beach, with its waterfront cafés and kiosks selling cold beer. It's an 8-minute drive to famous Ipanema Beach, with nightlife and boutique shopping found in the inland neighborhood.

Mountain and ocean views

With an 11-minute drive you can be at Sugarloaf Mountain for a cable-car ride up to panoramic views of city and sea at its peak. A 30-minute drive will deliver you to the base of Corcovado Mountain where a cog-train ride takes you to see the towering Christ the Redeemer statue.

Fitness center and dining

A dip in the rooftop pool overlooking the sea might precede a workout at the health club (also on the roof) or a sauna visit. Free newspapers are available in the lobby and hunger can be quelled at the restaurant, which offers a breakfast buffet and à la carte selections for lunch and dinner; drinks are at the lobby bar.

WiFi and flat-screen TV

Decorated in soft colors and light-wood accents, the 240 air-conditioned guestrooms have 32-inch flat-screen TVs with cable channels. While enjoying something cool from the minibar, you can comfortably sit at a desk to check email using WiFi.

Royal Rio Palace Hotel, Rio de Janeiro
Great hotel in Copacabana
An excellent hotel for the money located in Copacabana near the metro. Upgraded for free to a deluxe room after reserving the standard room which is quite small. Excellent breakfast with huge variety options, very comfortable bed, no problems with wifi, and super friendly staff. Plus lovely rooftop pool. Plan to stay there again.

Good, solid stay in Cooacabana
Good choice in Copacabana. Close to Metro and the beach. Very competent front desk staff (excellent English and friendlier than what you normally would expect). Super nice gym. Well equipped. Great pool.

Very Good8.0
Great service, good breakfast with a lot of choices. I had a room with two double beds.The room and the bathroom was very clean but it needs some updating. The pool was very nice with a beautiful view. This is a very good Hotel for the area. Wi-Fi was not working very well. It was on and off. I had to change my room, because the first room Wi-Fi did not work.

Not a 4-star hotel
This is not a 4-star hotel. This is a 2.5 star hotel with a rooftop pool. Beds were not comfortable and creaky, wifi could only be used within 5 feet of the entrance (I spent the majority of my stay in the bathroom because that was near the door and I could at least sit down while on my phone), and there appeared to be 20-30 blood droplet stains on the lower part of the curtains. It felt like I was in a motel. You get what you pay for.
