The Best Western Plus Copacabana Design Hotel is located among the most famous beaches in the world: Ipanema, Copacabana and Arpoador. The beautiful natural setting of the Marvelous City is already an irresistible invitation to get to know it, which becomes even better with everything just a few meters away. The hotel was inspired by one of the most famous movements of Brazilian music: Bossa Nova. On the ceilings of the apartments, you find pieces of music by famous composers. Another difference is in the cuisine of the hotel, the restaurant follows the contemporary Brazilian line, favoring the local flavors. The Best Western Plus Copacabana Design Hotel offers an exclusive service in Rio de Janeiro, with a minibar that is replenished daily with natural products of your choice, pillow menu with 4 options of different heights and materials.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

The location of this hotel is a very strong point...its opposite the Metro and about 2 blocks from the beach, coming out at the Copacabana Palace hotel and about 2 blocks from the Hilton. The rooms are small but very clean. I had read about there being only 1 bath towel in the

The location of the hotel is excellent as it is a mere 5 minutes walking distance from the Copacabana beach. Breakfast buffet is decent with even options for tea (not that common in Brazil). Rooms are bit on the smaller size and the bathroom is really small but clean. Service is

Good hotel, small rooms but well decorated and with good amenities, poor variety at breakfast but the worst was they didn't offer any special treats for diamond members of BW rewards (no room upgrade, no welcome gift, no late check out).

Nice location close to the beach, local restaurants and bars. Also great starting point to explore other city attractions. Clean rooms but small. Nice breakfast. Great staff. Higher floors have great mountain view.

The cruise port is easily accessible by public transportation: the subway station is right infront of the hotel. Take the subway to Cinelândia station, get off and take the Light Rail Transit (VLT in Portuguese) to the cruise port (the VLT station is right outside Cinelândia subway station). And the cruise port is right on the VLT line at Praça Mauá. Make sure you take the VLT in the right direction (if you take it in the wrong direction don´t worry, the last station - the local, not international, airport is only two stations away from Cinelândia). With respect to the aiport, there are buses that will take you from Galeão, the international airport, to Copacabana. The hotel is quite far from Galeão.

There is an uber station outside rio airport if i remember correctly! That would be the easiest option, and its not too expensive just make sure the driver doesn't take a detour on you!
