The hotel is good value for money, clean and organized. It is nothing flashy but the location right on the beachfront is great. It has a fantastic rooftop pool and bar with fantastic views. The restaurant is nice and the food quite good. Recommended as a good value stay. The location is very good making long walks on the beachfront a great experience. Lots of good resaurants in walking distance. Friendly and helpfull staff.

Ver nicely located at the Copacabana Beach, the Hotel Arena is just what we needed. Fresh, clean, friendly and affordable. No fuss and nothing flash, but just right. Ask for a room with a sideview in order not to get a room at the lightwell. The breakfast and restaurant is ok, there are many restaurants on the road. On top is great view and a small bar. Fully recommendable at this point of time.

Room Tip: Ask for room with side view, avoid room at lightwell.

The hotel has been recently re-done. The rooms are very clean and so are the bathrooms; there are all the amenities you would expect int his hotel category plus lots of attention to details. I liked the beds that are nice and firm, the staff was courteous and very helpful. The views or Copa Cabana beach from my room and from the roof top, where the pool is located are absolutely stunning!!!!

Room Tip: Ask fro room on the high floor on the right side of the building facing the ocean. Views are stunni...

After jumping between 3 different hotels over a long weekend over the Copacabana beach front, arriving at the Arena was a great surprise. The folks at the front desk were kind and attentive, expediting the check in process and picking a great room ( room ending with 07 ) with front view to the beach on a whole wall window. The room was new, clean, and well designed. Wifi was a bit on the expensive side but worked flawlessly and fast - a major problems on the other hotels where was cheap and really bad. Ultimately, to top the superb service and because of the rate I was paying (quite reasonable for the location but still not cheap) they waived the wifi fee for the stay.
If you are a business traveler they are the best value for money at that location!

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 7, 8 and 9 have beautiful beach views.

We stayed four nights at this hotel. The rooms are fairly standard and we had "glimpses" of the beach. Breakfasts were fairly basic although they have a fabulous bar and rooftop pool which were great. Chargeable Internet which really should be included in the room rate. Overall a nice stay.

The hotel is in a great location, right off Copacabana, though our room had a view of a building next to it. The room size is typical of a hotel, with not much extra room, but the bed was huge. There was decent wardrobe space. The room and hotel interior was a lot nicer than the outside of the building looked, with modern, good quality fittings.

The staff were very helpful in the hotel, giving good advice of local sights and food. The breakfast (included in the price) was a good variety of fruit and local breads, with option of some hot food such as scrambled eggs. It wasn't extensive but was a good variety.

On the top floor is a pool, gym and bar area. The pool isn't very big, and the gym was tiny, with no floor space (just 5 machines). It was adequate but I have seen better.

Overall it's well worth a stay here if you are in the area, due to its proximity to the beach and great service, with clean modern rooms.
