A light and bright, contemporary-style hotel offering superior accommodation on Copacabana beach.

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.
