... towns and beach life but are very happy we came to experience ultimately the biggest street party in the world. It is insane how many people get dressed up, walk around the city looking for bloco parties, get drunk and well ultimately trash the city for four days. We are especially glad that we went to the Sambadrome and experienced the true carnival of Rio. Tonight we catch a night bus to São Paulo to hopefully meet up with another friend from the boat trip, ...
... was built in 1930 on a 2000 meter mountain overlooking Rio, 10,000 people come and see it every day. Another highlight is Copacabana Beach, it's a long sandy beach right against the hotels, you can see many strange sites there. We took a tour of a favela (slum), it is a very scary place and you wouldn't want to do it without a guide in a group, how anyone can live in those conditions are beyond me.
We have another two days and we will be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tulip Regente Rio de Janeiro
Very unfortunate with staying 5 nights in Luxor Regente. Standard room, in this 4 star hotel means a standard prison cell, without any window view, as it was covered with stainless horizontal blinds, and little gap overlooks inside openings to the service area of the hotel.
I know it sounds trite to say it is the best but in the last month we My spouse & I have stayed in all sorts of hotels in Brazil. From the Sahanna Palace in BH we found on the GOL website And discovered that though the photos on the site had been taken with mood lighting & Vasoline on the camera lense. The staff there were excellent though. To the very overpriced Ceaser Palace Sao Paulo that made us jostle with 400 politicions & bussiness people for the hotels service while they made pigs of themselves, as people on conferences quite often do.
Graet location and good value
Great location just across the road from Copababana Beach, friendly staff and generally value for money.
Well eqipped rooms, although a few problems with air conditioning.
Restaurant provides good a la carte and buffet meals, but bar area could be improved.
Stayed at the Luxor Regente for 9 days in June 05. Hotel is situated beach front at the better end of copacabana beach,within walking distance of ipamena beach,hotel and rooms very clean,room good size but had a terrible view as it was at the back of the hotel, but it did make it very quite so good sleep every night,bathroom facilities excellent especially shower, breakfast was first class. Free beach towels and umbrella and beach attendant excellent, kept an eye on everything all the time,and even when he was not there the man that sold the sunbeds and sunchairs watched everything for you, both very helpfull, sun beds not expensive. For a big city, very cheap for food and drink, meals enormous, enough for two. We had no problems when we were in Rio but did see a couple of unsavoury incidents so I would advise people to be careful. Taxi,s very cheap and a safe way to get around so we used them to go to the main attractions,christ the redeemer and sugar loaf mountain which were fantastic.
Very Impressive Hotel Great Location
This hotel was fantastice in terms of its location along copa cobana beach. The views from the top floor baclony/Bar are amazing. The staff were always courteous and very helpful indeed.
I also enjoyed the moring breakfasts and evening buffet meal it saved wandering around trying to find decent food. The only down point would be the rule on visitors - basically if you are sharing a room, no visitors are allowed - I think this applies to all the hotels though!
This is classed as a four star superior hotel - I think it is more 3.5-4 star by european standards but it has all you need for a great stay.
My sister and I just got back. We were there for one week and found the hotel to be extremely comfortable and of course right across from the beach. The staff were very friendly and did everything possible to make our stay memorable. The hotel staff spoke English and arranged dinners for us. I liked the hotel because it had the flair of the Portuguese, and it didn't feel Americanized. We had a Superior room but still faced the street, but it was no big deal because we were only in there to sleep. I would definitely go back there.
Excellent location excellent hotel
what an excellent 3* hotel, for value for money this hotel is the best. the location is fantastic and just a short walk into the nightlife. i would recommend upgrading to a deluxe room because of the views. In the standard room you overlook a street and the windows have shutters so you have no view really but if your not bother then i would recommend a standard because of the price. The staff are excellent and always happy to help. The swimming pool is not up to much a bit on the small side but it does offer fantastic views. The hotel offers a security guard on the beach which is a nice touch not that you really need one. I felt safe in Rio just make sure do dont walk around with a 500.00 camera round your neck and you'll be fine. Would definitely return to rio.
Stayed for three nights March 2005. Superb hotel just across the road from Copacabana Beach. Modern, bright, impeccably clean with comfortable furnishings and well appointed rooms. Excellent buffet breakfast with wide choice of quality hot and cold items. Do not miss the evening meals offered in the hotel restaurant - buffet with a superb choice of items, hot and cold, all beautifully presented and of high quality. On one evening one of the five items offered in the hot meat / fish section was filet mignon - cooked to perfection. The price of the evening buffets? An unbelievable 29 Brazilian reals per person - £5.80!!!!!!! Friendly, helpful staff - ready and willing to offer advice on local transport, sites to visit etc.
Just came back on 3/28/05 after a wonderful week in Rio. The Luxore Regente had great service at an affordable rate. Hotel and rooms were very clean. Rooms did not have much of a view unless you reserved ocean view specifically. Hotel staff very accomodating with service within the hotel and the hotel lifeguards on the beach. Great service Tecuardo! The location was excellent - - right on Copacabana. We walked right from our hotel right across the street to the beach. We were 3 females traveling alone and never felt unsafe in the area were we were located. Hotel doormen were always able to grab us a cab we we needed one. Street vendors and places to eat were conveniently a walk away from the hotel on Copacabana. The reviews I have read about the unsafe conditions on Copacabana beach definitely appeared to be a bit exaggerated. We never experienced any problems. If your looking for value, great service and location. Luxore Regente should be your choice.
My wife and I stayed at the Luxor Regente the first week in March 2005. The hotel is a solid choice for value seeking visitors to Rio. The rooms are comfortable and to US standards. Many rooms have no view - but in Rio you will spend little time in your room other than sleeping. The AC are noisy but bearable. The restaurant is excellent both for breakfast and dinner both a buffet with ample choices and good food and service. We found the lobby bar area to be a fine place place to relax sipping a pierinhjo and pleople watch. The service is excellent and most of the staff speak English. Good location for beach (Copacabana) and shopping - we never felt unsafe even though the Copacabana area is a working class neighborhood compared to the more upscale Ipanima beach area. We would definitely lodge at the Luxor Regente again.
