Dear Guest, Thank you for the review. We do our best to make the rooms as perfect as our guests deserves but Brazil is a tropical country and we have too much humidity but generally we can handle this with success as we can see on the reviews. Windsor California Hotel has a great structure like a rooftop with an infinity view pool, steam room, fitness center, restaurant, room service 24 hours. We serve a deilicious and famous breakfast at our second restaurant on the first floor and our staff has always the will of serving. I hope you give us another chance in a near future and choose us again. Regards, Douglas Zacharias.

The hotel is very well located and the staff excellent. But the room we got was claustrophobic. We had no view whatsoever. I am not sure whether it was we booked through Travelosity but I am sure we would have liked it better if our room was on the other side.

Thank you for your review!

4 out of 5

its a brand new hotel, however

Pros: through travelocity search
Cons: well maintain the property and enhance the facility for all rooms.
Location: This place is in between botafogo and ipanema beach, the restaurant selection was minimum ( maybe i'm just the picky one) , other than that its fine.
This is a brand new hotel right by the Copacabana beach, one block away. the hotel has nice view to the beach ( if you have the beach view room) , the room was very clean because of its new and the pool was small but great service and view. the staffs were very attentive but just a few minor things about the room. 1. the balcony door was unable close properly - this doesn't give me too much trouble, the only concern I have was I discover two mosquito and I'm very sensitive about it due to the outbreaks for yellow fever and zika for the country 2. The phone doesn't working so every time i want some food or housekeeping I will need to take the elevator to the pool area to lobby. this gets little annoying. everything else was great, and one night I stayed by the pool area, they just non stopping feeding you with small snacks. the drink was pretty well made. and price were very reasonable.

You should know

  • Upon check-in, parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years old are obligated to present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example). For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, the parent must present—in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo—a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People intending to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate prior to traveling for more information.
