Everything was amazing, the room, the location, the staff!
The breakfast was delicious, the lobby is beautiful also!
But in special, Ivan from the reception, he was very lovely and friendly!
For sure I will return to this hotel!
Best value in Copacabana

The hotel is right on the beach, perfect spot, in particular if you can take one of their spectacular ocean view rooms.They are the best value for the money you can get. Wonderful atmosphere in the hotel with very nice and helpful staff.

Olinda Hotel is an excellent location for a visit to Rio. The room had a front window view of Copacabana beach. There are restaurants in walking distance. Staff is very helpful, especially when I needed help calling a car rental agency.
Wonderful Holiday! And Marcello at the concierge was fantastic to deal with.

This hotel was great, beautiful lobby, great breakfast, they serve cappuccino through the day (a bonus for me), the beach is right across from the hotel, our hotel room was clean and spacious, can't comment on the wifi, because I only used it for sending texts (ie. didn't watch my usual YouTube or netflix shows while on vacay). Be careful you don't throw the toilet paper in the toilet though (sorry, TMI) but this is the case throughout almost all of Rio. The concierge, Marcello, was so courteous and kind, his english was impeccable, he provided excellent information, as I researched with him, museums/art galleries/city tours. Incidentally, while those working in the concierge speak english, it really is useful to learn a little Portuguese before you travel to Rio as no one other than those in the service industry speak english. Also, take ubers to get around, and don't be intimidated by scary safety warnings, just dress simply (ie. don't flash jewellery, etc.) , keep your phone in your closed bag/ purse when not in use, and wear your bag/ purse across your body when walking around- I strolled the beach, and the concourse walkway (by myself during the day and in early evening, with a few other ladies) and I was treated with the utmost of courtesy and respect by everyone I interacted with .
just on the beach

Old fashioned looking hotel, but just on the Capocabana beach. Unfortunately the 'rooms with a view' have a much higher price, that doesn't worth for just an early morning look....the metro is 5 minutes walking .The breakfast buffet is a very good one and changes everyday, friendly staff and clean rooms...Just if your room is not a VIP one, the noise of the hundreds of air conditioners outside the window will compel you to keep it closed during the night....
