A first-class hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 6, 2008

We stayed in Rio de Janeiro four (4) nights at the beginning of our three-week trip to Brazil and three (3) nights at the end, visiting Ouro Preto and Congonhas, then Manaus and a Rio Negro jungle lodge in between.

The Rio Internacional is an outstanding hotel. Our room was large and well appointed, with two (2) double beds, a wide and deep balcony, and a spectacular view of Copacabana beach. The price was right, too: US$176 per night.

Some have complained about the hotel's location -- and about being hassled by beggars and prostitutes. We met with nothing objectionable, even when we returned to the hotel late at night. From our balcony, however, we did notice up to a dozen streetwalkers -- in the wee hours -- in the block between the Rio Internacional and the Copacabana Palace.

Unique Quality: The small rooftop pool was closed ('for maintenance') during most of our stay.

The complimentary breakfast was lavish and good. Even the bacon, usually mangled in Brazil, was nicely prepared. At our one dinner in the hotel we ate at the unreasonably early hour -- for Brazilians -- of 8pm. We were the only diners until Brazilians began to arrive at 9:30.

Our only disappointment was the tour we booked, through the hotel, for dinner and the Plataforma show. We asked to eat in Plataforma's own, superb rodizio; instead we were taken to a mediocre churrascurria in Ipanema. We also asked to be seated in Plataforma's balcony; we were told it was closed, though we saw others sitting there. (I should have booked, as I did on a previous visit, directly with Plataforma.)

Directions: About four (4) blocks south of Av Princessa Isabel.

Beach View

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Well, this is where I stayed when I was in Rio for work! It was right in front of the Copacabana beach, and we were surrounded by shops and restaurants.

Unique Quality: The people at the front desk were very helpful, and they also have guys connected with the hotel who work on the beach that will rent out beach chairs, bring you drinks and snacks, and watch your things while you swim. It was very clean, and there is a nice rooftop terrace with a small pool.

Great Roof Views

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2004

I was part of a missions group that stayed here during 1998. As I only paid a total trip cost, I dont know how much it cost. The price has gone up since then, I'm certain.

Unique Quality: Pool on roof and provides a great view of Copacabana, Ocean, mountains, and Corcovado.

Directions: Copacabana Beach
