“Great location, but in need of new bedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

I really liked to stay at this hote. Great location, fair price, very good breakfast buffet. All the employees were very helpful and nice, always smiling. The rooms are clean and very spacious, but could use an update on the closed and bathroom. The only downside, in my view, are the beddings and curtains. The bedspread looks very old and the blaket was also old, it itched a bit.
When I checked out, I made sure to tell the front desk staff about this minor downside, and they passed my suggestion to the managment team right away. I will come back!

Room Tip: Twin beds are narrow.

Stayed at Acapulco Copacabana for 1 night, position is just great, 1 block away from the beach and 3 mins driving from the SugarLoaf cablecar. Staff was friendly and polite, wifi fast and free and breakfast was acceptable.
My room and bathroom were big, not new but well manteined. Only negative side bathroom and beds were not completly clean and you could hear people talking in the near rooms.
Overall convenient for the price.

Copacabana area hotels are expensive and this hotel is reasonably priced and only one block off Avenida Atlantica in the Leme area. It is close to many nearby restaurants and shopping. We stayed there three nights and, while the room was basic, it was clean and the bathroom had been updated as well as having plenty of hot water. The staff were very helpful in assisting with our requests and in booking us on tours. The breakfast offers a good selection of fruits, breads and cooked items. The hotel is a good value for anyone wanting to stay in the Copacabana area.

It’s located about 150 meters from Copacabana Beach.
This is not a luxury hotel, but not a budget hotel. This is a normal hotel with optimal for Rio quality/price ratio.

Friendly and courteous staff. Rooms are not large. Delicious and varied breakfasts.
Near the hotel there are many cafes and restaurants where you can dine.
There are, for example, quite a budget option "per kilo", where you have to pay for the weight.

The hotel is very basic, clean room, helpful staff, good location - just a short walk to the Copacabana beach and parallel to the main Avenida Atlantica. The breakfast has an excellent selection of fresh fruits, juices, different types of bread, cooked items of scrambled egg, sausages, ham, bacon and cold cut of meats. The complimentary wifi connection is stable and fast. If you are not seeking luxury, this hotel should be good for a stay at a reasonable rate.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I wasn’t looking for much, just wanted to spend the short time in Rio near Copacabana beach before leaving the next day to Iguacu. Hotel is actually on the Leme end of Copacabana, just a side street (Rua Gustavo Sampaio) away from the beach and parallel to the main Avenida Atlantica that runs along the beach walk. The street for the hotel isn’t too busy and there are some small shops and restaurants nearby (try Shirley Restaurante just a block or so left of the hotel when facing the ocean). It’s also not too bad of a walk to Copacabana proper. Rooms have a clean feel with light woods and simple furnishings. It was comfortable but not fancy. My single room had a relatively large wardrobe, wall mounted flat-screen TV, but no in-room safe. The bathroom was basic with a shower and no tub. Breakfast was included with a fairly large but simple breakfast buffet. I liked the good variety of fresh fruits. Not spectacular but I had no real complaints and it does seem to be a reasonable place to stay for the price in Copacabana/Leme close to the beach.
