A light and bright, contemporary-style hotel offering superior accommodation on Copacabana beach.

The Windsor Hotels in Rio de Janeiro constitute a successful and growing chain of contemporary, good value properties. In common with the others, the Excelsior is a bright and airy place with a Scandinavian feel - there's plenty of light honey-coloured wood and shiny tiled floors creating a cool ambience in this frequently humid and hot city.

This modernised, superior quality hotel sits on prestigious Avenida Atlantica - the stately boulevard which runs along Copacabana beach.  Shops, bars, clubs and restaurants are just a few steps away. The well-insulated guest rooms and suites have individually controlled air-conditioning and granite-style bathrooms. The hotel’s facilities are great: there’s a buffet restaurant, snazzy cocktail bar, gym and attractive top floor swimming pool bedecked with foliage giving views over the beach - where you will find the hotel’s own secure beach service, with complimentary use of umbrellas and loungers.

  • The Windsor is idealy located for Copacabana. It is a typical city tourist hotel which fit our needs.

    JH Dorking
  • Great being right on Copacabana Beach, especially for breakfast. Roof terrace bar with its views was great! Might have been nicer to have had a room with a FULL sea…

    CL High wycombe
  • The rooftop bar and pool were amazing. It was wonderful to stand up there watching life go by on Copacabana. The rooms were a little tired but the fantastic location…

Our Expert's Opinion

Right on Avenida Atlantica overlooking Copacabana beach this hotel has a great location giving the rooftop pool fantastic views. The superior executive rooms also have ocean views so worth the upgrade.
