Picture Perfect Paradise Courtesy of the Rio Othon Palace

A Low Price Palace

The Rio Othon Palace is fit for royalty, but guests need not pay a fortune. It's a postcard-perfect picture of sand, sun, and sea with hundreds of rooms to fit every price point. While hotels such as Orla Copacabana Hotel and Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel are comparable, they don't afford the same iconic views or experiences.

Most rooms offer stunning ocean views, while rooms and suites on the upper floors also have astonishing views of Copacabana. Standard amenities include cable TV, Internet access and WiFi, room service, and even laundry facilities. Guests who stay in junior, executive, and deluxe executive suites get their own balconies, while other levels enjoy plasma TVs and jacuzzi tubs.

Playing Tourist on the Cheap

The hotel is close to many of Copacabana's most popular sites, such as the boardwalk, Rodrigo de Freitas Lake, and the unmistakable Christ the Redeemer Statue, which towers high in the sky and looks down over everyone. Guests can also take advantage of art fairs, nightclubs and bars, trendy restaurants, and more shops than they'll ever get to visit. One of the key attractions is the Sugarloaf Cable Car, which is temptingly close.

Staying In and Living the Life

The wide, wild world of Copacabana waits, but the hotel provides more than enough fun for any visitor. Complimentary breakfasts mean guests can get the day off to the right start without leaving the grounds. For lunch and dinner, Skylab is all a foodie could ever ask for, and it's right on-site. Featuring a salad bar and a selection of à la carte dishes, each day brings a new culinary adventure. The restaurant's dishes are largely influenced by French cuisine, with a little Asian fusion thrown in for good measure.

Outside, guests will find themselves spoiled for choice. Once they've explored all the beach has to offer, they can swim in the hotel's outdoor pool, which is on the rooftop and heated for comfort. Following a drink at the bar, they can work off dinner and drinks using the hotel's state-of-the-art fitness equipment.

The Bottom Line

For an authentic experience in Rio, the Rio Othon Palace is definitely fit for a king or queen. Guests can enjoy themselves without breaking the bank or even leaving the hotel. At the same time, it's so centrally located that exploring the area is not just effortless but also inexpensive.
