Arena Copacabana Hotel

Reviewed 24 April 2007

I have a soft spot in my heart for this hotel. No, it is not the "Grand Dame" of Copacabana hotels, but it offers a fantastic beachfront location for a very reasonable price. The staff is very nice, the breakfast buffet is quite good and it is served in a second floor restaurant overlooking Copacabana Beach. The room furnishings are dated (not unsual in a lot of places in Brazil), BUT the bathrooms are modern and clean and there was plenty of hot water. All in all it is an economical place to stay in a locale famous (or infamous) for outrageously overpriced hotels.

Yeah it is right on Copacabana Beach but it is extremely run down, furniture and beds in the rooms are terrible. It is overpriced for what it is. The beach is not that nice anyway (then again I am a spoilt Australian used to much better beaches) and the nearby area dangerous at night - I would recommend staying further back from the beach or around at Ipinema.

More serious than the hotel being rundown - I also booked this hotel through hotelclub.com (also runs as ratestogo.com) and amended my booking by one night (my flight was delayed so I wasn't arriving in Rio in time to use the first night of accommodation) - 4 months on I am still waiting for a refund for that night. Who is dodgy - hotel or hotelclub?

Hi! I spent a week at this hotel. It's old...the furniture is very old but it's ok! You spend most of the time at the beach or around the city so it's ok. They have a great location, just in front of Copacabana and they have a wonderful buffet breakfast!
The staff is nice and they have internet for a reasoable price so you don't need to look for it outside....I really liked it!

E-mail me if you have any question.
