Fodor's Review

Adequate rather than luxurious, this hotel has large rooms and a quiet beachfront location. Now a half-century old, it has undergone several major renovations. The lobby and reception area is attractively furnished, with a huge mirror and comfy chairs, and the room decor is modern, if subdued. The location on the beachfront at the Leme end of Copacabana is the reason to stay at the Othon Palace, which is popular with business executives.

Disappointment in many ways. Be warned.

Booked this on the description alone, ...what a mistake. After one bad night, canceled the remaining nights and moved to the Excelsior down the street ( which was A+). Paid about $120/night here, and got a very old used room, very noisy all or nothing AC, dingy dark shower and bath, peeling wall paper and paint, average breakfast buffet, dark hallways, rickety elevator, no black out curtains, and saggy old beds. Pluses were a quiet end of Atlantic

Ave on Lehme beach, nice waterfront views and that's about it. They did let us cancel out no problem, which was commendable. I did notice the TAM airline flight crews stayed there too, so they must see something or get a great rate I did not. Excelsior cost $20 more and delivered 300% more quality.
