    Decent but dated - would have spent more $$ to stay somewhere nicer”

    The good: -Excellent location, literally across from the beach -Friendly staff -Large room -Great skyview pool with view -The Shower - its almost TOO strong of water pressure :). Perfect for getting all the sand off The not so good: -They give you a Nespresso machine in room, but you have to order the capsules via room service for a charge. -Breakfast is pretty bad - just mass produced food -Check-in and check-out process takes FOREVER. We are talking 15 minutes each person. Including a SMALL line that grew larger while we were in it, it took over an hour to check in? That is crazy -They have beach chairs and towels to rent, but there are 8 total chairs / umbrellas for the entire hotel, so they run out quickly. Fortunately, there are dozens of guys at the beach who will rent you chair and umbrella for the day for a cost. -Not very comfortable bedding / towels - just old and crunchy, not soft.

    Great, grat location for the New Year's evening, the fireworks were just in front of the hotel. Very kind, helpful and friendly staff, always ready to help you with anything. Gorgeous view of Copacabana and the surrounding beauties from the top of the hotel. Opulent and delicious breakfast. Most landmarks, grocery stores and gift shops are near by. Definitely will recommend the place and will come back again, despite the little higher New Year's eve rates, which is understandable since Copacabana is one of the most beautiful experiences in the world!

    Very slow expedition and not friendly staff. Generally the hotel need upgrade as it looks very old and not maintained. There was no bar only a table in the reception called a bar. You need to pay for car parking and to use the gym so you need to add this to the daily cost of the room witch make it no value for the money.

    I really liked our stay at the Othon palace. Nice pool at the roof but to few sunbeds for 600 rooms. The way they put on 10%tips on the the room was in my eyes not OK. It is an expensive place to stay at and you tip for everything else you buy there. Breakfast was good, not amazing but good. Would stay there again.

    rooms were great, big beds, clean and good cleaning. By contrast, to take 10% tip on a hotel room, I was not OK.

    I really liked our stay at the Othon palace. Nice pool at the roof but to few sunbeds for 600 rooms. The way they put on 10%tips on the the room was in my eyes not OK. It is an expensive place to stay at and you tip for everything else you buy there. Breakfast was good, not amazing but good. Would stay there again.
