They have very good and experience personnel at the reception. Room was small but modern, clean and pleasant. Water pressure was good. Wifi was excellent. The gym and swimming pool at...

I got here with my husband for a two night stay. The check in was really slow and we had to wait over an hour to get our room ready. While we waited we went to the restaurant to get lunch and asked for the one that included dessert and either beer or water (we chose beer). How ever, although...

Service was OK. The room with sea view was OK and clean. The swimming pool and the bar on the roof are nice. There is a small fitness room on the rooftop as well. Breakfast buffet was very good and the waiters are friendly. The hotel is a bit outdated.

Beautiful hotel with a great staff, updated rooms, amazing rooftop pool and bar area and absolutely unmatched views of Copacabana beach. Easy walk to subway or a nearby taxi station. Excellent place to stay in Rio - not cheap, but worth every cent.

We spent 4 nights here at the end of our trip to Argentina and Brazil. We were welcomed on arrival with a glass of champagne which got our trip off to an excellent start. The hotel is modern and very clean. The minor downside of the room was its small size and that the wardrobe wasn't long enough to hang...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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.
