"rio othon" Rio Othon Palace Tip by grmaher

Rio Othon Palace, Rio de Janeiro: 521 reviews and 9 photos

The Rio Othon has some of the best views in Rio but that's where the value tends to end. For $300 a night you get an aged room, aged television, no tea and coffee making facilities and a room service menu that delievers food that looks like its been in a traffic accident. Hotel staff are helpful and security is tighter than expected which is reassuring. If I pay the same money for a hotel in Singapore, Manila, Bangkok, Saigon, Kuala Lumpur and even Jakarta I get much much better in every single way. I wondered why the beaches of Copacabana were so often deserted compared to those in the Asia Pacific region. Please take this as constructive advice - Rio Othon senior management you need send a delegation to Asia to learn how to do tourist hotels properly. Hope this helps.
