    This hotel is at the city center... about 15-20 mins away from the Copa-Cabana beach which is the most sought after areas for tourists. There is a restaurant attached to the Hotel, which is good as I was alone and did not feel comfortable to venture out for dinner outside due to possible safety issues.

    Location: shops, bus stops, tram stops, the cinelandia metro station, and several places of interest like theatro municipal, carioca aqueduct, etc. are all walking distance from the hotel.

    Windsor Asturias is a great choice for the business traveler.

    Having liquid soap dispensers rather than the tiny bars of soap would be great. I know this is a small item but with three of us in the room soap dispensers would have been a welcome amenity. During the day when the area has a lot of business people in it, it is very safe but at night I felt threatened and I have a fairly high tolerance for dangerous situations. Only one other time in my many years of traveling have I felt this unsafe.

    Service in the restaurant was what you would expect in any high end restaurant. It's the best I have ever had in a hotel restaurant.

    None of the tours do pick Up from downtown. Please book hotels at Copacabana. Also, they do not offer to help you liaise with the tours if it's a cell number, which was inflexible. The town was dead on weekends and not safe to roam about, only Golf during weekdays.

    Very good location, just at downtown and next to the metro exit.

    The things that could have been better were nothing to do with the hotel. It was carnaval time and rio was very busy and dirty in general. Not the hotels fault

    It's better than the photos suggest. The view f4om the top is amazing. The staff are so helpful. The location is convenient to most things you would want to see in Rio. For what it's not close to, it's very close to the metro to make things easier.

    The breakfast-room is a little bit small for the number of the rooms, so in peak time you have to wait for a free table (or maybe it happens only on the first day of the year?).

    Very good location, near the main street, metro, bus. Many sights from the center of the city can be reached in max 30 min walk. Very professional and helpful staff. They speak a very good English. Special thanks for the free early check-in. The breakfast is very good, they have a large variety of products. The room and bathroom are large.

    I wrack my brain to think of something negative...the rooftop pool is a bit small, perhaps.

    Being mere steps from Cinelandia Metro means easy access to Copacabana and other beaches. Unless one MUST stay at the beach, one can save huge money and not compromise comfort and quality. Ballet and opera lovers will be steps away from the country's #1 opera house; just walk back 5 minutes to the hotel after a show or have a snack at one of the cafés on Plaza Floriano after the show, on the way back to hotel. Lovely, helpful multilingual staff.

    The public areas are small, particularly the breakfast lounge. The hotel was full and people had to stand in line to get a table. The hotel has no parking, but that is common in the downtown area.

    It is conveniently located, near SDU airport, metro and bus lines. The facilities are modern and nicely kept. Free WiFi is OK, not great, like in most hotels. Breakfast is good. There is a small pool, terrace with a view, bar and sauna in the top floor. Staff is friendly and helpful.
