Well-priced and conveniently located hotel a couple of blocks from the prestigious frontage of Copacabana beach.
The Windsor hotels in Rio de Janeiro (there are 11) constitute a successful and growing chain of contemporary properties. The Martinique, a well-priced mid-range hotel, has a very convenient location just a couple of blocks from the prestigious frontage of Copacabana beach, steps away from its restaurants, beach bars and shops. It's also just a ten-minute walk from the chic district of Ipanema.
The modern building has a glass façade and public areas fashioned from marble and granite. There are over 100 compact and corporately decorated en suite rooms across seven floors; if you’d like a partial ocean view, go for one of the larger superior rooms. There is a restaurant, bar, terrace and very small rooftop pool – not suitable for swimming but handy for a quick cool-off.

Our expert's view
Jim Ashworth - Product & Marketing
Jim first caught the Latin American travel bug in 2001 when he decided at the last minute to join a friend travelling around Central America – he hasn't looked back since.
I stayed in the Windsor Martinique on my return to Rio following an amazing trip around Brazil. It was the perfect base for my last night in the country, located in the bustling Copacabana just a block from the famous beach. It was great value and offered everything you could want for short stay.
