Rio de Janeiro: Windsor Excelsior

Windsor Excelsior

The Windsor Hotels in Rio de Janeiro constitute a successful and growing chain of contemporary, good value properties. In common with the others, the Excelsior is a bright and airy place with a Scandinavian feel - there's plenty of light honey-coloured wood and shiny tiled floors creating a cool ambience in this frequently humid and hot city.

This modernised, superior quality hotel sits on prestigious Avenida Atlantica - the stately boulevard which runs along Copacabana beach.  Shops, bars, clubs and restaurants are just a few steps away. The well-insulated guest rooms and suites have individually controlled air-conditioning and granite-style bathrooms. The hotel’s facilities are great: there’s a buffet restaurant, snazzy cocktail bar, gym and attractive top floor swimming pool bedecked with foliage giving views over the beach - where you will find the hotel’s own secure beach service, with complimentary use of umbrellas and loungers.

This excellent modern property really tries to cater for everyone: individuals, couples, groups, businessmen and women and conferences. For families, there are interconnected rooms and discounts for young children. The hotel also  has facilities for the disabled, with specially adapted rooms, lifts wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs and lift buttons in braille.
