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 hotel room provided a splendid view of Cococabana beach and the hotel location excellent although the main road was not easy to cross. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and obliging. The breakfast and dining facilities were very good.

No other hotels have balconies. Reason 1 to stay here. We had a suite, which is the size of two rooms, with a balcony. It's like taking a cruise, inside cabin, port hole view, or a balcony? Room 701 overlooking Copacabana beach? Yes please! Awesome staff from check in to

We have just visited some great places in South America.The one exception which in our view did not measure up to the others was Porto Bay Rio Internacional in Rio de Janeiro. There we were greeted with a scaffolded building - at low level over the entrance and at high level on

Albeit being a 5-star hotel, and charging for such, Porto Bay Rio de Janeiro behaves far from it. During my 3-day-long stay in the hotel had several mistakes and inconveniences happen to me and my family. The first problem happend right when we arrived at the hotel. When we

Yes there is a few restaurants nearby, la trattoria is very good so is hotel restaurant both are pretty reasonably priced too,, local beer at hotel is a our £3, so pretty good. Lots of local shops nearby, and big shopping centre couple of minutes away in a taxi which are pretty cheap

I do not recall but overall the pricing at the hotel was fair. All of Rio is fairly cheap and if you find the pricing a little steep, there is no end of streetside bars/restaurants and beach bars all along the boulevard that will be cheaper. The side street next to the hotel has a few cafe's, couple of bars and at the end the most incredible roast chicken style restaurant. If you do not book a side beach view or suite, I would recommend the Arena Leme instead.

Hi Yes if you have 3 adults in the suite bed it is very big you will have plenty of room. You will not need the rollaway bed Even if you all are on the large size you will not need the roll away the bed is mega big And very comfortable

Book the One bedroom suite ocean front view. Separate bedroom, nice sized living room and good size balcony. Otherwise the front corner room with the huge wrap around floor to ceiling windows at the front-side, offer great views along the whole beachfront.
