Fine hotel near the Copcabana fort.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2013

Golden Tulip Regente is a fine 4 star hotel in the quiet end of copacabana away from the redlight scene of the part of Copacabana facing Leme.
It's just a 2 minute walk from the fort and right on the main beach avenue so all you need in order to get to the beach is to walk across the road.
The room i had there was absolutely fine and the decor of the hotel is nice and tasteful.
Reception staff was also very accomodating.

Be ware though that the drinks at the cafe and the restaurants are very very high and i suggest you leave the hotel and have a drink in one of the many bars in the area instead as there is no reason to pay 25 reais for a glass of wine for instance.

But apart from the expensive drinks then it's absolutely a place i would recommend to people who want a nice hotel in a good location.

Unique Quality: Good location and friendly staff.

Directions: Right on the beach front avenue, near the Copacabana fort.

This used to be a good hotel... not any longer!

I am Brazilian and live in the United States. I visit Rio de Janeiro every 3 years. This used to be my hotel of choice, when it was named Luxor Regente Copacabana.

During my last two trips to Brazil in the last 6 years I opted for another hotel, after being confronted with the ridiculous prices the new owner (Golden Tulip, a dutch owner) has imposed. This hotel does not command the rate they are currently seeking (over $276 per night)! I believe they are trying to compare themselves to the Rio Othon Palace or even the Mariott. They are very far from even coming close to the caliber of those two hotels.

My opinion is that, if you are willing to pay $276 per night at this hotel, you will be better served and less frustraded by paying $315 per night at the Rio Othon or $400 per night at the Mariott.

As long as there are suckers willing to pay $276 per night at the Golden Tulip, they will continue to charge that much for a stay.

I, for one, knowing what the Golden Tulip is like will not pay that musch to stay there.

Have a great, safe stay in Rio and enjoy yourself.

Situated in front of Copacabana beach, close to Ipanema and Leblon Beaches, in walking distance from excellent shopping, restaurants, nightclubs and all attractions.

I traveled with two girlfriends and we had a very standard room. The hotel was kind enough to add a third twin bed to the room and we were able to manage quite well. Our room did not have a view of any kind, but it was always clean and the bathroom was easy to share.

The staff at this hotel is outstanding! We especially enjoyed meeting Carla and Giselle, the two girls that are their just to help crazy tourists like us. We got lots of tips on where to go, especially for our big night on the town for my friend's birthday.

The breakfast was delicious, most of all the coffee. We stayed so busy each day and it was a joy to return to such a nice hotel every evening.
Be sure and say hi to Laurent in the H. Stern shop!

Located at the Arpoador end of Copacabana beach, this hotel looks rather unimposing from the outside and also on the inside as well. There's nothing fancy about it, it just does it's job. Service is friendly and polite, rooms are good and fairly spacious with very good sized bathrooms. Rooms have usual 3 star features such as TV, safe, Air-con, mini-bar etc but the room I had had no view at all but then, of course, you have to pay extra for that.

There's a roof top swimming pool and terrace bar along with a very good restaurant which served an excellent plentiful breakfast and also served good buffet dinners at very good prices. All-in-all a nice beachside hotel that doesn't cost as much as others that offer the same.

OK, after all we'd heard about staying in Ipanema rather than Copacabana I have to say Copa was totally fine. I never felt unsafe and this hotel had everything you'd want minus decor. And I'm picky as heck about decor, so it was fine.

The people at the desk were MORE THAN helpful. I can't even begin to tell you how invaluable they were to us.

The breakfast each morning was good too. NOT GREAT, but good. Tons of fruit, cheese, breads, pastries, various cold cuts, various juices, coffee and tea.

Please hit the roof top the moment you check in- make sure you have your swim suit on too! It's lovely up there. WHAT A VIEW! And you can order yourself a caipirinhia as early as you like and they don't bat an eye at all. Then take a dip in the small yet completely refreshing pool.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Unique Quality: I think I touched on most of this above. However, they do have a nice little Internet set up for guests for a minimal fee. And the restaurant is open for all three meals. And if you're desperate to get your hands on some H. Stern jewelry there's a small shop in the lobby.

Directions: Right on Copacabana beach, about a five minutes walk to Ipanema.

Not very inspiering from the outside, this hotel is nice and plesant inside. The room is specious, and the staff is efficient and helpfull. The only downside are the clastrophobic coridors and staicases.
The restaurant is good and plesant with great veriety in the morning and dinner buffet.
The pool on the top is small, but who needs a pool in copacabana

Unique Quality: The dinner buffet is very recomended - for that price - about 25 R, you want get such a variety and quality in any restaurant in the street.
Try fresh squeezed orange juice at the bar by the pool on the top of the hotel and enjoy the beautifull vie of the beach
