Wheelchair Accessibility Comments

  • Although this hotel is considered fully wheelchair accessible (in South America), it’s really on the margin.
  • WARNING: There are several steps at the entrance, however, for wheelchair access they move a temporary iron gate, unlock another gate and then you roll up a ramp and take a circuitous route to the front desk – so there is a step free entry if you ask. They are there to guide you but it’s not a convenient entrance.
  • WARNING: Elevators are very small (2 person max) and in my narrow Quicke I had a difficult time getting situated in the elevator. Elevator depth is only 24 inches so  I had to scoot the wheelchair around to get the elevator door to close. Larger wheelchairs and power wheelchairs will not fit.
  • The accessible room was reasonably large, clean and the bathroom was quite spacious with extra counter space.
  • No bench seat (or any seat) in the roll-in shower.
  • There were 2 nice king size beds but they were 5-6 inches higher than normal. My transfer to the bed was a little scary.
  • There is a nice breakfast room and large buffet which was very wheelchair accessible.
  • There is a lobby bar with limited choices and it was one of the worst I’ve experienced in a 4 star hotel.
  • The hotel is located in an excellent safe location on Copacabana Beach but a marginal 4 star hotel.
  • Steps to indoor pool.
  • I’ve given the hotel a WJAR 3 Rating but I cannot recommend this property.
