          10.0

          The staff was most helpful and attentive in every way.

          Only one complaint - the stairs at the entrance make access difficult for persons who are on crutches or in a wheelchair. The Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires and the Radisson Hotel in Montevideo have long graduated ramps at the entrance for handicapped guests. This facility is sadly lacking at the Copacabana Palace Hotel.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Superb hotel. We had been upgraded to a junior suite with city view and it was just perfect. Service was very good, in room breakfast and meals were always exactly what we wanted and personnel was very friendly and had high standards.

          The laundry service was very expensive (e.g. 30 € for a dress).

          faultless, we treated ourselves to a last night of pure luxury on our honeymoon, fantastic experience, i'm not sure any other hotel will quite compare !

          Friendly staff, very convenient location.

          1. The staff is friendly, but not helpful. They could not help me with getting my carnival tockets (I had to do everything by myself) and they could not organize for me any city tour! Incredible. I wanted to join any group tour around the city which are usually organized by travel agencies - the staff failed to find any for me during 2 days! The only thing they could offer - a private car with a private guide for a crazy amount of money. 2. The transfer cars in the hotel are twice and even more expensive than an ordinary city taxi. For instance, my transfer to Sugar loaf and back by city taxi (w/o waiting) cost me 36 r$. The hotel offered me the same transfer (w/ 1-hour waiting) for 220 r$. The city taxi is good and the cars are nice. Don't use hotel's cars! 3. In the room there is no bath, no tea- pot with tea and coffee, no fruit-plate as a welcome service. The tv remote worked poorly. 4. I paid almost 1000 usd for a night, the breakfast was not included. Funny. 5. The hotel isn't worth the money they charge!

          I am staying for more than 15 years there. It is refurbushing during almost all the same period. It was a glamorous hotel , but it is old, bad service in restaurant, and living from the glories of the past. Poor staff training, and short of attention to the client who pays a similar price as the Dochester in London or the Ritz in Paris. Anyhow in Rio whith its location is the best hotel

          It is obvious overpriced

          fantastically poor wifi connection - very poor speed and quality

          10.0

          The waitstaff and all personnel were wonderful. The breakfast buffet was extremely expensive but worth it. The room was beautiful. It was very expensive but worth every penny. It was in a great location and you could walk along the oceanfront every evening. There were some pretty good restaurants along the oceanfront.

          I did not like how expensive it was but I guess that goes with the territory.
