I stayed at the Barra Windsor while attending a conference recently. It looks and feels like a 3-star hotel although they claim 5-star status. The location by the barra beach is one of the redeeming features though this is quite far away from city attractions of Rio. It is clearly over-priced for what it offers. What is worse, I had...

It's a very good corporate hotel. It's a chain and you know what you're getting. It's American conference-style. You get good service, excellent breakfasts but you pay for 'extras'. Is wifi an extra? Well-located if you want to be in Barra. It's a long way into the centre of the city and the traffic is.......!!! But if it ticks your...

Because of the pictures and the prices you assume that it is going to be an excellent hotel. First, staff only knows Portuguese, had a lot of trouble communicating. Second, the nightstands had dust everywhere. Third, food is too expensive and so so. The pool is great, more if you go in the night. The pool service was good.

Stayed for a conference at the hotel. Clean, efficient and well run. Staff polite and friendly. Good size room with two desks - important for those who are also have work. Carpet needs changing. Internet is available in the room at a price, whereas I believe that it should be included in room tariff. In case of using additional equipment...

My last review on this hotel was in 2011 and I gave it 5 stars. At this time, my review is only 3 stars. That's because: 1 - Called room service and asked for a bucket of ice to chill a wine bottle. They asked me if I had bought the wine at the hotel. I said no and because...

The location is great right across from the beach which the hotel has a section with chairs and umbrellas. The staff was also very helpful the only downside as an American was the breakfast buffet which was a little weak.

The Windsor does everything in a competent manner. The rooms are clean and okay. The restaurant is okay. The bar is small and okay. Nothing is done badly, it is just that everything is done up to a point, and that point is okay. It is as if their motto is "just provide enough service to get things done". That...

We organised a large conference here and there are not many facilities in Rio that can cope with an event of our size at the quality we want. That said, we expected much more from the Windsor Barra. E.G. the A/C in my bedroom didn't work and could barely be controlled in the main conference rooms resulting in some delegates...

Two days of fun and a week of work based at this hotel, for a modern hotel it is shabby, soap dishhanging off in the shower, missing and faulty lightbulbs in the room and the cleaning levels poor.
