Well now I see why it is called the marvelous city. After staying in this beautiful location I would pinch myself to see if I was dreaming and I still think the answer might be yes although I am really not sure.

The hotel is located very conveniently next to the Copacabane beach with a beatiful view and easy transportation. The staff was very pleasant and helpful both in the reception and in the dining room. Breakfast was very good every day, although I regret the salmon (lax) was only on Friday to Sunday. The fitness center is small but suffficient, although... More

We enjoyed our stay at this small, well located Hotel. The front desk staff were excellent and so was the dining room staff. We were a little dissapointed in the dinner. However, the morning breakfasts which are included was rerrific. The patio on the 14th floor is lovely and has a great view of the ocean.

Arena Copacabana is very well located, in front of the Copacabana beach. The hotel is clean, the staffs well trained and polite. the rooms in front of the beach have great view, but the air conditioner is too noisy, and since all the windows are locked, you have to turn the air on all the time. The problem is at... More

Great staff. Super friendly. I arrived a little before noon and my room was ready. I didn't even need to ask. I had forgotten my converter and the gentleman at the desk gave me one for free. How often does that happen? Room is modern and clean. Bed is a little hard but I slept fine. Great roof top bar... More

The location on the beach was great for starters. And the view of the beach was wonderful. Nearly every staff member was extremely kind and welcoming to any questions or needs we had, even for someone who doesn't speak Portuguese well. The breakfast: superb. It came with the room but was a huge array of sweet and savory foods including... More

Central location.. Upgraded room with sea view is totally worth it..after all you're overlooking one of the most famous beaches in the world.. Room was simple and clean, nothing fancy...no complimentary water, no free internet in rooms, bed was harder than normal...we got a nice quiet room facing the sea up at the 10th floor...bathroom amenities were not up to...

Having stayed in numerous hotels during the previous 6 weeks this was just great. On arrival the reception staff were very friendly and Raphael patiently showed us 2 alternative rooms to the original one until we were happy. If you want a sea view you need to pay for it. On the basis you can see the beach from the... More

Arrived in Rio de Janeiro for a quick weekend trip from Macaé. The hotel is amazing and staff are excellent! The all speak fluent English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The room was very nice and the beach view was amazing! The only downside to the hotel was the extra charge for wifi service for R$30 per night.
