Windsor Excelsior Copacabana

4 star sister hotel to the Windsor in downtown Rio, the Excelsior offers a prime location just footsteps away from Copacabana Beach. A stylish, yet unassuming business and leisure hotel.

Windor Excelsior Copacabana Highlights

The Windsor Excelsior is the sister hotel to the Guauranbara located in downtown Rio. The brand is synonymous with style, simplicity and effortless design. The cascading hotel hosts 233 rooms with a choice of executive, luxury, twin, doubles, suite and penthouse accommodation options.

The penthouse enjoys unforgettable views of beach and ocean; while all rooms have recently undergone a massive refurbishment. Decor is fairly unassuming - neutral beige softs, wood accents and tropical plants provide the only statement features in the hotel. The coastal views provide the quintessential beachside feel - the hotel simply accentuates the natural beauty of its surrounds.

The hotel's highlights include the location, which is within walking distance of Copacabana Beach, the world's most talked about beach. Atop the hotel is an entire swimming pool area with aerial views over Copacabana. The pool is enormous and certainly tops the scale in terms of being one of Rio's largest hotel pools.

Not only is the Windsor Excelsior perfectly placed in a picturesque location, but it's ideal for both the business and leisure traveller. This brand of hotel ensures a variety of guest is catered for, and with 7 reception rooms each with a capacity of 150 people, Windsor Excelsior is certainly a top choice for business travellers.

Boasting a fitness centre, a pool bar, tantalising restaurant with a culinary twist, sauna and a strategic location close to activities and transport; makes the Windsor Excelsior a popular hotel.
