fab location - staff & room not so

there are 3 good reasons to stay here and ..but more than a few negatives to consider the good 1) the location..opposite copacabana beach- 1 sunrise/sunset would alone justify the price 2) the buffet breakfast -extensive, attentive breakfast staff who do requests (ie fried eggs) 3) one person at reception- she speaks german and a little english who will do her best the bad 1) apart from that 1 person poor standards of service at the front desk 2) a very prominent - i don't speak english so i can't help you attitude from all staff in the lobby..... reception and the other staff hanging about opposite the lifts 3) check-in and check out was laboured - with computer systems that must run on valves the ugly 1) it was a large room with a balcony - but furnishings were sub-standard and antiquated - some minor post-decoration crap was stuck to the carpet and they hadn't bothered to remove it! 2) bathroom tap had come away from the wall - unsightly marks on the tiled floor -toilet seat not properly anchored to the floor - all signs of an old hotel which had not been properly maintained since built. such a shame- you could spend us1000 making each room fabulous and charge half of that every night with no customer complaints 3) cleaning staff - do whatever they want! ask them to clean the room later- they clean it when they want--ask for the room to be cleaned at a certain time- it's not done. useless!

perfect location not so perfect rooms

Location, location, location
The location across the road from the Copacabana beach is the best thing about this hotel. The lobby looks amazing but the rooms needs lots of repairs.

Fantastic !!!

Please overlook any shortcomings of this hotel ( not that there are really any apart from maybe the slow elevators). Be sure to book a deluxe room and make sure you stipulate a balcony to enjoy the full view of the ocean and Copacabana beach. The breakfast buffet is very good with plenty to choose from with food replenished regularly. The staff are very helpful and always available to assist with local information.

fantastic location (Copacabana)

very clean house, friendly staff, very good breakfast (buffet)
House is an old luxury hotel with a very good service and an attentive staff (English-spoken). Restaurant serves a nice breakfast. Rooms are clean but a little bit old-fashioned. Big bathroom and a very spacious balcony overviewing the Copacabana.

It is good but it's old.

Good location to get a subway and beach.
It's awesome to get a Copacabana beach. But Ipanema beach is better than Copacabana beach if you are young. I can't see the good body in Copacabana. But hotel location is really good to get a subway and beach. Breakfast is awesome. You should visit to hotel. But hotel is old.

horrible, don't stay there

old substandard hotel, everything falling apart, the overall atmosphere is that of a hospital. Got locked out in the bathroom of my room because the door handle broke when i pulled on it. My strong advice is to avoid this hotel at all costs

good location, but litle value for money

nice 1930s or 1950s style hotel with very good location at the Copacabana beach just next to the Marriott hotel, but the hotel is unfortunately run down. Only few Ocean facing rooms. The other rooms to the rear are quite run down, especially the bathtubs which show signs of rust. Wooden floors and old furniture has its charm, but one has to like it. Very good location, especially if you want to stay at the Copacabana beach. Buth the hotel would badly need a refurbishment, especially the bathrooms and doorlocks. Given that, overall not quite good value for money, unless you are lucky to get an Ocean facing room. Wifi signal is very weak, very slow and not really worth paying for. No gym.

excellent location

in Copacabana Beach
The best characteristic of the California Othon Classic Hotel is its prime location in the heart of Copacabana Beach. This hotel is adjacent to the JW Marriott and near many great places to eat well for a reasonable price. The hotel commands a nice view of the beach (if you have an ocean-view room); all you need to do is cross Avenida Atlántica and you will be enjoying the sand and the sea. The lobby, bar, and dining room are carefully restored and give an air of elegance. Standard rooms, however, do not have the same charm. They seem more old than antique. While the parquet floors, wooden beds, and wooden closets are truly works of art, other aspects really fell below expectations. The bathrooms seem old and do not function well (getting water to flow from the shower instead of the tub was not easy). The bureau lamp did not work. Even so, I enjoyed a very good breakfast. Staff was friendly and professional at all times.

Quite old and overpriced hotel

Upon arrival the hotel looked already a bit old. When inside the rooms were old and not clean, it smelled. Also, small rooms and expensive internet.

Copacabana beach the view will make you aaawwww.

beachview, close to all copacabana action.
I extended my stay for another night, did'nt get the great rate I got initially, but the average rate for my 4 nght stay was ok, the lobby is a good place to sit around for some people watching, and all of copacabana is just around the corner. the lobby bathrooms are really clean and maaintained.
