I stayed at the Windsor Barra for nearly a week because of a conference. The rooms were okay though not very modern. The WiFi wouldn't work despite the hotel charging a steep amount for internet connectivity. There was a token fitness centre with only 2 of the 3 running machines working. The main issue is that the Hotel is a... More

I stayed at the Windsor Barra for a few days of business. The rooms seem a bit outdated and decoration is all a bit pale (beige), also there are still old-fashioned (and small) TVs. But there is nothing really bad either, bathroom is ok, and my shower worked very well, which was a nice change from my previous (different) hotel.... More

I stayed at the Windsor Barra for a few days while attending a conference. The overall infrastructure is very good, although the rooms are not as big as I had expected, and the furnishings are a bit outdated. The facilities include bar, restaurant, the works. It is a good venue for large conferences; there are many meeting rooms. There is... More

I stayed for 4 days in November at the Windsor Barra Hotel, Rio de Janeiro, in a Medical Congress. For Congress the hotel is very good, but for tourism the location is not good, because Barra da Tijuca is far from the main touristic atracttion in Rio and the trip to the beachs like Ipanema and Copacabana can be around...

I stayed here for two nights while visiting a nearby hospital. I found the hotel to be spacious and attractive with good rooms, service and breakfast. The beach opposite is good and although a bit far from the main attractions of Rio, I liked the relative quiet. I would certainly stay there again.

I have stayed many times in this hotel, in vacations and business trips, as it possesses a very good location in front of a very nice beach and near the business centers in Barra.

The Windsor Barra is clean with very helpful staff. The rooftop view is great and the beach in front is ideal for relaxing through the day. The location is somewhat removed from the night life scene as well as the sites - so the area is quieter. This was my first trip to Rio and the hotel (and staff) made... More

This is a pretty good hotel with decent staff. Great view of the area and right on the beach.

An incredibly expensive hotel, a long way out of Rio. Very isolated, with no shopping, and only a couple of restaurants within safe walking distance at night. No guest laundry, so either hand wash clothes, or pay the extortionate hotel charges. Supermarket and money machine within reasonably close walk (but only safe during daylight hours). Rooms nice, especially those with... More
