    Location

    Incorrect rating -- Not a 4 star, barely a 1. Numerous complaints were not responded to -- worst hotel ever stayed at. Staff lied and only as leaving was a manager accessible. Still waiting for answers that were promised!

    Decent breakfast. Very nice night staff.

    This hotel was hands down the worst hotel I've ever experienced. They should change the name to hoteis Favela Othon. The rooms and walls were mildew ridden, our beds were soaked with moisture every night. They did not warn us that there was a charge everytime we picked up our hotel phone even just for local calls! we were not able to stay in our room for the 2nd half of our trip, we were so sick from the mildew, moisture, and dirty AC, we had to make alternate accommodations! This hotel severed our health and made our trip to Rio De janeiro much more complicated than need be. Not to mention now that we are home and still sick from the conditions has cost us another three days of recovery and doctors visits.

    Easy to get taxi. Near Copacabana. Ok breakfast.

    It was dirty. It was seriously dirty. Hear on the wall in the shower - not ours. Bed was horrible. If I was going to afganistan I would expect this standard. We had a luxury room, but we might as well be living on a 2 star hotel. And now Im being nice to the 2 star hotel.

    Fabulous

    I made my booking around 24th April. Booking keeps the credit card numbers for 10 days. They called me one day before my stay to confirm my card details by email. I called Booked.net who re-activated the details and replied to Othon that they had access to the details again. When getting there the booking was cancelled and they gave me probably the worst room of the hotel. This is the second time they make this error. Othon should get the credit card details within 10 days after the date of booking. Perhaps you can explain them this.

    Fabulous

    Location on Copacabana beach was great! Ideal for Carnaval (our reason for visiting Rio). Buffet breakfast was good.

    The room could have been more spacious. I think free wi-fi should have been included in the room. Something was wrong with the air conditioning - it was leaking a small puddle of water in the hallway in our room (safety hazard) and it was very noisy so difficult to sleep in the room with it on (but we needed it on as Rio was so hot!).

    Location is only thing going for this old beat up in bad repair hotel. We went ahead and booked hotel even with some of the bad reviews... Knowing it would only be one night stay... And wanting to be close to the beach... What an adventure it turned out to be.

    We had to switch rooms due to a horrible smell, that took 1 hour to fix - and we were down graded 3 floors to the smallest room with barely a water closet. Then the internet passcode would not let us log in, that took 35 min to fix. Went back to the room only to be locked out - the door lock was jammed and would not open. We waited over an hour in the lobby for the locksmith to let us into the room in 15 seconds. They would not provide any compensation for the inconveniences.This hotel is in need of desperate repairs and updating - I'm not talking about the prettiness - I'm talking about electric outlets/switches, plumbing, doorlocks, windows, moldy tile, the worse condition of all the hotels we stayed in on our 10 night trip to Brazil. Most definately only a 2 star establishment. :(

    The location and ocean view from the room.

    The dirtyness of the lobby furniture, the interenet did not work, the staff gave me the 3rd degree when I entered the door at midnight, the sheets/towels less than motel 6 quality, the hotel is seriously in need of upgrading

    Great location. Helpful staff. Classic look and atmosphere.

    Amenities were limited. Tv didn't work consistently, although it had cable channels. Charged for internet.
