My Business Stay

Location to the Subway, Location to the Beach, Local Amenities
My stay was only for 4nights, I was in room 306. The first night my room was quite warm so i turned the air con on to cool the room down, after about an hour i could hear water dripping. On checking this out the dripping was coming through the light fitting above the fridge. This was reported to reception but nothing was done about it. I had to use the waste bin from my bathroom to collect the water.

great location, nice rooftop bar/pool

spacious rooms, helpful staff
For the price, Royal Rio was quite a good hotel. The location was great - about a 3- or 4min walk to the beach and close to restaurants, bars, launry facility and a supermarket. Clean and spacious rooms and staff were helpful most of the time. There was a huge variety of choice at breakfast and they were flexible with timing. The pool was located on the rooftop and, despite being small, it was clean and modern and had a nice atmosphere.

Excellent slightly cheaper Copa alternative

Breakfast, service, location
Good experience. Service is a bit "confused" and seems a bit busy and disorganised when there's only a few customers around, but they're helpful and their English is good enough. The breakfast lounge offers a great selection, and the rooms are spacious and good. I saw that this hotel is rated "8" and I'd agree with that, though I'd give it a 7.8 myself (because of the general ambiance).

Very good hotel and we would stay there again

Great breakfast, convenient location and good facilities
We had a great stay. Convenient to local bars, restaurants. After 4 days we moved onto Ipanema for 2 nights. 4 star Golden Tulip was not as good, however more local to restaurants, bars and banks. Copacabana beach and beach bar areas better than Ipanema.

Copacabana Highlights

Pblic Transport connections, close to the beach, Roof Top Pool area
The situation of the hotel is ideal for the Beach and especially to explore all the important sites of Rio. Negative: the receptionist did not inform us about change of summer to wintertime and forgot our morning wakeup call for 04:30 in the morning, so it really was utmost stressy to reach our flt to Manaus.
