Hotel located on the Beach of Copacabana. I was upgraded on arrival with a sea view room which gives you great view of Copacabana beach.
Staff at reception were very friendly and helpful with very good level of English. The rooms are nice and more like Business Type hotel decoration. Although i was a bit worried with the beds looking at the reviews here, I slept very well and did not find the bed too hard, it was in fact perfect. The breakfast is included in the room rate and is served in the hotel restaurant and is very good with a lot of choice.
Safety in Copacabana is no more an issue it seems as there are a lot of Police around.... You indeed feel quite safe walking around.

Room Tip: Higher floor gives a better view on the beach

Comparing to other hotels in Rio, this is definitely as good as it gets. We were advised not to stay in copacabana, that it can be dangerous at night, but Arena hotel is an oasis or peace and tranquility. Very modern, clean and stylish. It totally corresponds its 4* rating by european standards, not like many other south american hotels. The rooms are spacious, with great decor and nice amenities. Staff were indeed very professional and helpful. Breakfast restaurant offers a huge variety of foods and the pool bar on the top floor is a really nice place to enjoy the views of the busy beach in front and beautiful Rio sunset. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are quieter and have amazing views

I would like to thank the Arena Hotel staff for making my visit to Rio a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean and pleasant. Within walking distance of the beach (literally right across the street) and if you prefer you can remain on the 14th floor near the pool or the bar. There were several people I would like to thank for their kindness, generosity and their professionalism: Raquel, Leo, Eudes, Marcio, Pedro and Portelo.

My mother and I greatly appreciate the staff you have at the Arena Hotel. You are awesome. ;-)

The hotel is nice, recenlty renewed, with basic, clean rooms. Breakfast is very good with a good choice of food. Rooms can be a bit noisy. I haven't been to the roof swimming pool as Copacabana beach is conveniently right in front of the hotel, just across the street, so I couldn't miss it!

Very very nicely decorated and tenovated hotel. We got a free upgrade to full sea view room but even our side sea room view was awesome as you got t osee christ the redeemer from it too. Staff very efficient,friend;y and helpful, location great on Copacabana, love;y poolside bar and restaurant on roof. Cannot fault this hotel.

Room Tip: The side sea view rooms are lovely if you cant afford the full sea view.
