In front of the famous Copacabana beach, Rio Othon Palace Hotel is a good option in Rio de Janeiro. In the top floor you can have a marvellous view of the sea, Copacabana and Ipanema neighbourhoods and Sugar Loaf. After the beach, if you fancy a swimming pool, just go to the top floor and will have a great time. Besides this, the rooms have great size and comfort despite they have antique wood furniture, with strong smell. Some of them have panoramic or lateral view to the sea, which I recommend. The breakfast, served in a restaurant with also beach view, is delicious with large options of fruits, breads and hot dishes. The location of Rio Othon is amazing, once you are in Copacabana beach and just few minutes by walk from Arpoador and Ipanema beaches, and also close to the public transportation. However, take care if you are planning to go out, especially at night. Due to the large number of hotels and tourists in the region, thieves operate in the area.
