The hotel is a bit old but maintained in a proper way. The beds are a bit tired and the windows not that hermetic but everything is clean, the breakfast buffet has a large choice and a nice view, swimming pool on the roof and the Skylab restaurant have a fantastic view... The staff is very nice!

Like most of Copacabana the Beach hotels were built 20 years ago. The Othon is likely of that age and the rooms are nice, good views but need a make over. The bathrooms are really showing their age as fittings and fixtures are tired. The business restaurant on the top floor is great for breakfast and worth the extra cost...

We had 5 nights stay at the end of our journey in South America! And it was just what we needed! Perfect location, great service and staff, spoke good English! The beach staff are also great! It was definitely an experience spending the day on the beach being waited on hand and food with coconuts and caipirinhas! It was also...

Beautiful view from the terrace on the top floor across the beach - lovely to have breakfast whilst gazing out across Copacabana beach and the sea. The breakfast selection was OK without being great. The room was clean and neat. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. All in an enjoyable 2 night stay.

Although it is a bit old, it is very well maintained. And the location is spectacular. Although Ipanema and Barra are more fashionable, the beauty and the fact that Copacabana is closer to the new attractions of the city center (Museu do Amanhã , AquaRio) are favorable. One tip: pay a difference at breakfast to take it on the roof....

After several bad experiences in Copacabana, I decided to try this classic hotel. And the experience was a lot better than expected. Good rooms, not new, but perfectly maintained. Attentive service and a nice surprise with an upgrade to the 30th floor for breakfast. From there, amazing 360 degrees view of Copacabana. We had lunch there too. Really good. I...

First impression when you arrive in the taxi is poor, as two Hotel's doormen watch your attempts to get your bags inside without even slightest offering of their help. Too busy enjoying conversation and own jokes. Even we had e-mailed them for an earlier check-in, nobody answered. Only option offered was paying additionally extra for “front-side sea view”. This is...

I've been here for the 6th time in 3 years. After 20hrs flying, I arrived at 1pm and I was told I could enter my room only as of 3pm, unless I wanted to pay 50$ more per night (I had already paid 900$ for 3 nights and it's low season now!). So I decide to wait: no free chairs...

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.
