“Spectacular and iconic in every way!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed at the Copacabana Palace for a birthday treat on our trip to Brazil - it did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in the front door, the entire staff treat you like a very special guest.

We had a lovely suite overlooking the iconic Copacabana Beach. The suite was spacious, immaculately clean and luxurious. The hotel sent a bottle of Champagne to the room to help us celebrate my birthday. And to ensure our daughter did not feel left out of the celebration, they sent her a little stuffed bear too - an amazing touch! The pool was glorious and the pool-side service better than anything I had experienced before. Lunch by the pool was perfect and dinner at Cipriani was the perfect way to end the evening.

My only regret is that we stayed for one night only!

I had stayed there a few times in the past and got the chance to do so again for a couple of nights during the World Cup. It is without doubt one of the world's great hotels with beautiful rooms, excellent facilities, classic ambiance and a really pleasant staff who are efficient in every department. We ate in the new Asian restaurant and it was excellent. Recommending the Copacabana Palace may seem a bit superfluous, but I'll do it anyway!

I recently spent some time in Rio during the world cup and it was a shame that I could not stay at the Palace as I think it had been blocked booked by a Corporate. I stayed in the Hotel a few years ago and am returning in late February for a few more nights.

I have a number of friends who have stayed here and its just a great hotel well worth every pound dollar or Euro spent. Its quite simply one of the best hotels in the world....and if you thought there were any private beaches on Copacabana well there are not....which makes it great fun for everyone.

This Hotel is special and will not disappoint.

Room Tip: Beach view is best

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for sharing your review relating your last stay with us. Indeed, during the thrilling period of World Cup, all the hotels in Rio are facing a very high occupancy and the same will certainly occur in the 2016 Olympic Games. And in your case, February is coming up quickly and it will be a proper occasion to enjoy The Summer and the Carnival (middle of the month).

The Palace is obviously in a prime location overlooking the beach, easy walk to Ipanema and Leblon. The pool is also a great place to relax and spend a day, if you have the time.The service is excellent and the decoration is amazing. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The suite was fantastic, clearly recently upgraded, with a very nice balcony, comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom.

Stayed here at the end of our trip all over Brazil and was not impressed. We arrived in beach clothes directly from a wonderful stay at Uxua in Trancoso and the guy at check in looked at us and approached us in a manner suggesting that we did not belong there. As we travel a lot and stay in many fabulous places, it is very seldom we encounter this behaviour which makes it stand out even more when it happens. We had a deluxe room facing the beach, which turned out to be interconnecting. We could hear everything being said in the next room through the interconnecting door which was unfortunate at best (would suggest you check this when booking to avoid). We tried the private beach in front of the hotel, but abandoned it quickly as there was a constant approach of people trying to sell things or services. Many would not even take no for an answer, so impossible to relax.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sending your comments. First of all, we would like to tell you that one topic caused us concern: you mentioned a private front beach. Indeed our hotel doesn't have one. So maybe you are referring to another hotel where you stayed in August 2013. Feel free to add some complement to your report.

We stayed at the Copacabana palace a week before the World Cup began and had an excellent and remarkable stay. My wife and I were there for our anniversary. After briefly mentioning that fact to the woman checking us in, she asked us to hold on a moment while she figured something out...and she returned a minute later saying she was able to give us a free upgrade to a suite. That gesture and effort on her part set the tone for the rest of our stay - the suite was fantastic, clearly recently upgraded, with a very nice balcony, comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff were top-notch in all of our interactions. The concierge helped make reservations, advised us on the best way to see Cristo Redentor, and gave directions and tips for seeing the rest of the city. And they always did it with a smile on their face.

The Palace is obviously in a prime location - overlooking the beach, easy walk to Ipanema and Leblon. The pool is also a great place to relax and spend a day, if you have the time.

Granted I have not stayed in many classic "Grand" hotels, but of the ones I have stayed at, the Copacabana Palace was head and shoulders above the rest. It's expensive but you never feel like you're getting ripped off. If you can budget for it, it is definitely the nicest place to stay in Rio.

Room Tip: We were in a corner suite in the 'back' building above Cipriani. I would certainly ask for a...
