The rooms at the hotel are modestly adorned with all modern amenities. Those from the seventh floor upward have balconies, while those from the 14th floor upward have views of Copacabana Beach. The hotel is very flexible when it comes to room configuration, which is part of what makes the Windsor Palace ideal for both families and couples.


Located right in the middle of Copacabana, a stay at the Windsor Palace gives guests easy access to many of the city’s top attractions. While not right on the beach, the hotel is only one block back, so access is easy. Meanwhile, the rooftop pool offers a great alternative to the beach.
