Stayed for 4 nights in November as part of our first trip to Rio de Janeiro. Magnificent hotel - fairly recently refurbished. Fabric and style of the building is magnificent. Quite central along Copacabana - approx 30 mins walk to rocks at Ipanema to view sunset. Felt a very safe area - we walked along the promenade on several occasions. Fun and vibrant - Copacabana is extremely lively.
For our first 3 days we had a deluxe seaview room on 4th floor. Spacious, bright with a very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. Superb view of the beach. We then spent a couple of nights in Iguassu (se separate Das Cataratas review) and then returned to the Copa Palace - and were upgraded to a 3rd floor corner suite including sitting room - also in the 'old' building (rather than the tower annexe).
Food in the Pergula restaurant is good rather than spectacular - and moderately priced. Lots of staff but service relatively ordinary - with the quality of English spoken being a little disappointing for such a prestigious, international landmark hotel. Not a big issue, though. Buffet breakfast was very good. Pool and pool service excellent.
Rio is certainly a spectacular city and a must-return location. Should this happen we would definitely stay at the Copa again. Expensive perhaps, but very happy to recommend.
