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.

I spent holidays at hotel. Rooms and facilities are old and look somehow without maintenance. Breakfast was very good. We paid a buffe for Christmas dinner and I consider it very expensive compared to what I received. Location is very good for Rio Downtown sightseen.

The hotel is a little old fashioned (no recent renovations) but generally is very good (in comparison with our previous one). The location is very good only 2 blocks from Copacabana's beach and there are several shops (coffee shops, cafe, pastry shops, super markets etc)in the

The hotel is quite nice and very conveniently located just a few steps to Copa Cabana. Although crowdy, smoothly organized so all the services provided (e.g. Breakfast ) run perfectly. The only cons would be the rooms needing renovation and the internet running somehow slowly.

I'm not sure how this hotel is a 4 star hotel. The rooms are very dated and run down. There was a bad smell coming out of our bathroom. It might have just been bad luck and we had a room in the wrong place but it wasn't pleasant and even having raised it with the reception

I don't recall getting charged extra for anything. I myself can't stand when hotels do that. It's a rare occurrence for me but I don't blame you for asking.
