My wife and I enjoyed one of our best ever holidays at this hotel. Rio is amazing and this is a great place to use as a jumping off point. Do yourself a favour and upgrade to the oceanfront suite. Standard rooms are probably fine but they likely face the side street not the beach. Copacabana in all its manic... More

This is the worse hotel i have ever slept. It was not cheap and very disgusting. The rooms were not clean. It is a small hotel. The WI-FI was free only in the lobby and it was very weak. The hotel has only a good location. Try avoiding that hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights and the view from our room was just wonderful. The rooms are a great size with everything you need. Bathroom is a good size as well. Breakfast was included, I asked for some bacon and it was brought out to me with no problems. We enjoyed our stay BUT a few days after we... More

Lovely hotel in Copacabana. A haven of peace. Excellent rooms, we had a seaview suite which was massive and very comfortable. Great bed! Outstanding service, nothing is a problem. The restaurant is worth a try too. Used to stay at the Sofitel, but this is much better. Will be back for sure!

Spent 5 terrific nights here in June 2015. Wonderful view of the ocean from our 9th floor suite. Staff were incredible, especially with recommendations of where to experience the best of Rio. Breakfast buffet was to die for, especially all the wonderful fresh fruit. Rooms are clean, safe comfortable and exactly as advertised, and it's a great jumping off point... More

To begin - I would like to disclose that I would have otherwise rated this hotel 4 stars based purely on the staff and hotel itself. The staff I interacted with were all very pleasant and rooms were nice. I say all this, because I have come to find out that the hotel cleaning staff went through a purse that... More

Dear Mr. Miller, as soon we received your comments we start to investigate using our security means such as magnetic key cards reports and records from cameras in the floor you in. The magnetic key reports confirm what we already expected. No other keys besides yours and the floor made were use in the room lock. The made in charge... More

Stayed here twice in June 2015. Loved it. Close to Copacabana (cannot get closer). Safe area. Clean hotel, good food. Modern rooms and helpful staff. They let us place our luggage for safekeeping the 10 days in between our stays (while we were in the Amazon).

I stayed in the Arena for five days on a recent business trip. The hotel was clean and modern and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was well catered for with an excellent buffet. Although the restaurant food selection was a little limited the helpings were more than generous and the quality was good. Overall I thought the hotel... More
