I really liked Arena. Located halfway in Copacabana beach, this modern and stylish hotel boasts a fantastic terrace view overlooking Copacabana beach. Rooms are great (although have tiny windows), perhaps rooms facing the beach are even better, breakfast is great with great variety and food preparation quality. I recommend this hotel, and can't wait to try Arena Leme when it's... More

This hotel could not be in a more perfect spot. The staff was extremely helpful, polite, and spoke english which was not as common for many other spots in Brazil. The food was amazing I highly reccomend the brazilian chicken. The roof top bar was very nice and the beach is just acrossed the street. The breakfast bar was delicious.... More

Excellent services, location and very friendly staff. Price acceptable and location across the beautiful copacabana beach. Highly Recomended. The restaurant fennel meets all expectations and the breakfast buffet too. Close to ziqueira campos metro station and easy to take any of the tours offered at the front desk

Newly renovated, we had the best view of the Copacabana beach. The morning breakfast(included) was good. Great location ...walk to many stores and restaurants. Nice rooftop pool with bar. Our flight was at 10:30pm so I asked for late checkout. Since the hotel was not completely booked, they were very accommodating and let us check out at 4:00pm. Front desk... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 12/27/14- 1/3/15. Me and my wife had a good time. We enjoyed the hospitality of the English speaking front desk staff, the clean room (1402), and the Brazilian people in general. I got by with my broken Portuguese, mixed with my broken Spanish, when I needed to communicate. We only ate the... More

Just finished 4 day stay and believe we had exceptional service and value at the Arena. Location is fantastic, get a room with a view 604. Reception staff absolutely great. Victor, the main man, was not only very knowledgeable but would go out of his way to help. Rooms were clean WI FI worked fine. Breakfast good Roof top bar... More

I have stayed in many hotels along the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema--the Windsor Atlantica (recently), the Westin, the Praia Ipanema--and this one is far beyond the others in terms of service, style, efficiency, price and unpretentious ease. The front desk staff here are really exceptional, especially by Rio standards--they speak good English, they'll print out one's documents for free,... More

We stayed at this hotel from January 3 to 6 after spending 31 days on a cruise ship around South America. We arrived early and had no issue checking into our room. The staff were awesome - the front desk staff are very friendly and helped us book a tour to a Favela through a great company. The beds initially... More

Fantastic hotel with great staff and unbeatable view! Modern furnishings and well kept. We arrived at 10, but only let into our room at 3:30. (Was told it'd be available at 12, 1, and definitely by 2:00 check in). The wifi infrastructure doesn't handle the demand and toucan have trouble connecting. That's minor compared to the pluses though. Breakfast is... More

This hotel felt a bit seedy but thankfully had adjoining rooms when I traveled there recently with my family of four. The Copacabana area in general is a bit rundown but the staff at the Hotel Arena were very ambivalent to travelers (not many from North America it seemed) and do NOT expect any English! The roofdeck with a pool... More
