Shower head to die for!!
The shower head and water pressure was AMAZING!!! I enjoyed every shower and took longer than usual showers just because of the water pressure. That was the most memorable thing for me at the hotel. Then there was the breakfast, OMG, sooo gooooddd. The view from the pool on the 15th floor was breathe taking. Workers at the hotel spoke enough English to communicate with me to assist me with all my needs.

This hotel is excellent. Front desk is very helpful on any questions you have. I purchased an ocean view room and they upgraded me to a higher floor for a better view. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Quality of the breakfast items was excellent. You could order an omelette also. They served your drinks and the waiter was very attentive. Great hotel to stay. Right on Avenita Atlantica.

The rooms are 5*
I’m reviewing this hotel having stayed in a couple of others in coppa of similar star rating (the Miramar by Windsor and Portobay Int’l). I think this hotel is the best of the three. It has by far the nicest rooms, followed by Miramar then Portobay. The pool was nice (albeit small). Service was great. The two things it can improve on are the breakfast (Portobay was the best by far) and the gym is too small and needs some weights (dumbells). I would definitely go back though.

Exceptional service! Everybody speaks at least two languages, incredibly kind and available to help. Flexibility in the services by extending the room by a few hours. Facilities are fantastic, and the restaurant on the rooftop has very good food and a small lineup of wine, but of quality. Read Romans, great design, really comfortable bed. View of the Copacabana Beach

Great hotel for Rio
Windsor California Hotel was the perfect spot for my vacation to Rio. My room was always very clean and had an amazing balcony view over Copacabana. The front desk and doormen were always very courteous and offered me suggestions on were to get ATMs or siteseeing ideas. Would gladly stay here again next time I am in Rio.

Where to even begin! If you are looking for a place to stay in Rio look no further, my boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience. The staff greeted us and helped us with any questions we had whether it was an extra key, tourist info, food recommendations, etc. We had to pay for parking, but the valet service was great and our car was ready 24/7. We ended up missing our 10am flight once arriving at the airport and we called the hotel to see if they could hold our bags until our next flight at 6pm. When we arrived we thought we would be leaving our bags at the front but were shocked to find out they had an entire room waiting for us FREE OF CHARGE. Thank you so much Winsdor! We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon.

I have been to Brazil several times and stayed at 5 different hotels in Copacabana and Ipanema,This experience has by far been the best.The staff from the front door to reception ,restaurant and rooftop we’re very accommodating in friendly.My husband speaks the language but I do not and I felt very Thankful to the staff for assisting me and answering my questions when he was not around. I ate at the restaurant and the breakfast was excellent! They made omelette or fried eggs fresh if you requested it. I loved the upstairs pool deck with a wonderful view and the fitness room with updated equipment. I usually try different hotels every time I come to Brazil,however I think from now on this will be my first choice!

Beautiful rooftop view of Copacabana
Excellent rooftop area with good service and a great view of Copacabana. The pool is small but it's a beautiful place to relax. I had one small issue around breakfast where I was told it was included and in the end it cost around 70 Reais. Everything else was excellent.

Directly across from Copacabana Beach. Great views of the beach as well as Christ the Redeemer from the 15th floor. Great rooftop pool and bar area as well. Would highly recommend

I stayed here for three nights and I loved every second of it. I think that the staff are very well trained and very helpful and kind. If they make a mistake (we’re humans) they are very apologetic. I had an executive room with a view of the ocean and it was really nice because I could see what was going on every single day. I loved the room service and my favorite part was ordering food to my room.. lol although I only did it two times. The food here is very good, you get a huge breakfast for only $12. It comes with all different types of bread, (on my last day they had chocolate donuts too) ham, cheese, jam, juice, coffee or milk, eggs, fruit and yogurt. Also I recommend eating at the restaurant they have upstairs! The food is so good too. And it has a such. a beautiful view of Copacabana beach and the hills.. it’s breathtaking. If you eat inside on the rooftop, you have a view of Christ the redeemer... incredible. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone :) Thank you to the staff..
