It's pricey, but Rio hotels all are. Our stay there was fantastic. We had a room on the 19th floor, with side sea view. It was amazing. We could see much of the beach and Christ the Redeemer from the balcony. Service was good, breakfast quite lovely as well.

I stayed in the Porto Bay Hotel for two nights in July. The hotel is very clean and the size of the room I had was very large. The room rates include a very large breakfast buffet that made the price more tolerable.
Outstanding access to Copacabana Beach and a beautiful rooftop pool and fitness center.

My husband and I choose to stay at Porto Bay in July 2012 while visiting Rio due to its location and claims of the views from their rooms. We were not disappointed. The service, corner room with bay windows, large breakfast buffet, and champagne welcome were perfect. This hotel exceeded our expectations. We booked a pick up from the International Airport through the hotel. Their driver was waiting for us with a sign and promptly delivered us to the hotel. I would recommend using this service. He was so friendly and greeted us whenever we left the hotel. We also used their driver for the return trip to the airport. The front desk was very helpful and welcomed our questions. The view out of our window appeared the best from any hotel on the street. We woke up in the morning gazing down the beach. We never closed our curtains, we did not want to miss the view. The beds were very comfy with ample pillows and bedding. You do have to pay for Wi Fi, but the 24 hour service was reasonable and to be expected for a large hotel in a large city. Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: We would definitely book a corner room with the large bay windows.

Booked online due to good ratings on tripadvisor and was not disappointed.Arranged a prepayed discounted rate and ended up having to change my days and they obliged with no problems. In fact was upgraded to a suite for the 4 nights I stayed. Terrific views over Copacabana beach and much better prices than other hotels in a similar location. Would definitely stay again. Rooftop pool area has spectacular views.

Room Tip: Ask for beachfront.

From the welcoming glass of champaigne to our BON VOYAGE, the Porto Bay Rio did not disappoint. Great staff, great location, nice rooms,great breakfast, what else ??? Priced right for Rio's current trends, The Porto Bay is the choice.

Room Tip: Even the side view rooms are great if you stay up high.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in June 2012. Wasn't the cheapest one but was one of the most beautiful places to stay. Every room had a balcony with a nice view of Copacabana beach. The staff was fantastic and the food was the best ! would definitely come back to that hotel. The area was pretty safe also and very well located on the beach.

Room Tip: take a room on the higher floors so you get the best views
