“an exceptionally pleasant stay”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

You will stay in an elegant, majestic building in one of the most gorgeous cities in the world. Staying in this hotel is quite spectacular - from when you first arrive in the grand lobby entrance, through to the rooms.

The location is ideal to explore Copacabana and the city of Rio. If you can secure a beach view, you will really take advantage of the gorgeous views and the spectacular sunsets.

The room was gorgeous - comfortable beds and a beautiful bathroom.

The pool area was fantastic, and as you would expect, very good drinks and cocktail or champagne if you prefer. Look forward to visiting Rio again and would not stay anywhere else.

We stayed here for a week in February. It was such a great experience, the hotel was spotless, the service was fantastic, and most workers were bilingual. The pool area was so well kept, and the pool staff was always there if you
Needed them. Rooms were cleaned twice daily and the staff was always so nice. I loved it and would come back in a heartbeat.

This hotel is very pretty. The pool is amazing and so pretty lit up at night. The staff were very helpful getting Andre our driver. He was amazing showing us the area and taking us to Christ the Redem and sugar loaf. This was a very busy time of the year with The Pope arriving into Rio. He was able to get us to the airport in time to catch our flight back to the US. The beach is right across the street and is an easy walk. I recommend this hotel if you like to spot famous people staying while you are staying and love pools. The spa was nice too.

My wife and I stayed at the Copacabana Palace Hotel for four nights over a midweek and weekend.

We found the hotel to be exceptional at every level.

Our room was in perfect condition. A suite overlooking the bay - quite spectacular. It is a must we would thoroughly recommend it. The view from the balcony is amazing.

All the hotel staff were excellent without exception, in particular the concierge were ultra-efficient. We booked, cars and restaurants (following their recommendations) with the team. Contrary to other reports, whenever we went to the desk the Concierge Team were always ready to help. In fact they continued to look after us having checked out, when we traveled up to Buzios for a few days. Louis in the concierge department organised our car to take us back from Buzios to the Airport. We are now back in the UK and my wife is now coming to terms with living without Louis organizing her life!!

We had breakfast either by the pool or in our suite. Served in the suite is a wow with the French windows open to the balcony and the table wheeled in, with fresh juice and warm croissants is a must. By the pool there is a huge buffet with omelettes cooked freshly for you.

We went sightseeing in the morning as the heat of midday was too much we returned to the hotel.
When we came back at lunch time we went by the pool. The pool staff were again very good. Whilst it was busy they always found us some loungers. They came round the loungers with fresh fruit and cleaning of sunglasses. When I came out of the pool they were there with a towel. Such luxury.

We had lunch most days by the pool in the restaurant again this was served by a very pleasant team. Who recognized us and tailored our lunch to our needs. We were treated very much as individuals.

On Sunday morning we hired two of the hotel push bikes and took advantage of the highway being closed and cycled the length of the beach and taking in all the sights well worth doing.

You can probably tell we thought this hotel was fantastic and were very sorry to leave. We have traveled extensively and have been lucky to have stayed in some of the best hotels around the world. This hotel we would rank as one of the best we have stayed in based on the quality of the location and service.

It's a timeless lady in a beautiful white dress. Elegant but, understated. Relaxed but, refined!
A place where the staff remember your name.
The staff make you feel at home.
Whether your wearing a tuxedo or a t shirt the staff treat you the same. As a guest that they want to feel special.
The other hotels in Rio cannot compete.
