Windsor Guanabara

Av. Presidente Vargas 392, Rio de Janeiro, 20071–000, Brazil

One of the few solid hotel choices right in Centro, the Windsor Guanabara has reasonably sized and tastefully appointed rooms (although some are beginning to show signs of age), and the contemporary rooftop pool area—with white tiles, white trellises, and white patio furnishings—offers a welcome escape from the city swelter and stunning views of Guanabara Bay. The buffet breakfast is good, too, although the evening buffet served in the restaurant is a little steep. The hotel is a popular choice with business executives.

PROS

  • good transport links—close to metro and domestic airport
  • close to downtown attractions and nightlife
  • good pool with views

CONS

  • far from beaches
  • Centro is nearly deserted on Sunday
