Comfy on the iconic Beach May 21, 2012
Golden Tulip Regente Hotel, Copacabana Beach Rio De Janiero.

Arriving by taxi, approximately 40 minutes from the airport in Sao Paulo, to the 12 storey Golden Tulip Regente Hotel on Cococabana beach Rio, overlooking the famous and iconic beach. A porter greeted us and took our luggage to the front desk. Stepping out of the taxi, I looked up and realised just how big the Hotel was, and just how close it was to the famous beach, literally a stone throw distance from the main doors to the pristine white sands of Cococabana Beach.

The façade of the Hotel was modern, and the access was very good. The front desk was well presented and orderly, and the staff knew we were coming, so no hassles with check in. A porter took our keys and luggage and escorted us to the elevator, and delivered our luggage into our room. The awkward pause for the expected tip was amusing.

The room was not overly large, but compact and adequate. Cleanish and everything within reach. A small mini bar stocked with bottled water only. Bathroom was spacious and clean, with a good supply of clean towels, face-cloths , soaps and shampoo all complimentary. The waterflow was fast, just as I like it, and there was no problems with the supply of hot water either, so all good in the bathroom department. Unfortunately no street or beach view for us, just the back of the adjacent Hotel building, never mind.

The restaurant on the ground floor was large and clean and stocked a great variety of fare. Our deal included breakfast every morning for the 5 nights we were booked to stay. I enjoyed the breakfast fare, with lots of different cereals and fresh fruit, and fruit juices. Bacon, eggs and toast also available for a more hearty breakfast. Lots of strong coffee and tea as well.

The internet café was small and cramped which was rather surprising given the size of the Hotel, but I guess they assume everyone has their own laptop these days and you you needed was a passcode to access the internet for a small fee. The location of the Hotel as I said earlier was excellent and a stroll through the front doors lead you straight towards the sandy Coco beach. You must be careful when crossing the street during the day as it can get quite busy. What a beautiful scene walking across the street towards the beach, the sun was shining the day was clear and warm, and not too many people on the beach before 9-10am, the usual morning joggers and brisk walkers, cyclists and street cleaners take your attention before your feet dig into the warm white sands. Heaven.

Just outside the Hotel are lots of kiosk beach bars, with table and chairs, and sun umbrellas. Some serve hot coffee in the morning plus fresh juice.

All in all a most enjoyable and fun stay at the Golden Tulip Regente Hotel on Cococabana Beach Rio De Janiero.

Great place to enjoy the beach Mar 03, 2012
At carnival time in Rio de Janeiro all types of accommodation are extremely expensive and have a minimum of 5 days stay. With The Golden Tulip Regente the price was the most reasonable. The hotel is of very high quality. The food amazing. The staff are an absolute pleasure. The location was perfect, right on Copacabana beach. The life and sole of the party. The staff were amazing, they helped us with all sorts of queries. For the first time ever I felt like the staff were looking out for us and not just trying to rip us off with expensive tours etc. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and would most certainly stay here again.
