Stayed here for 6 nights with wife and 3 yr old. The Good: We actually booked a suite as it was just within our price range and the room sizes at the other hotels which had availability would have been too small for a similar price. It ended up being great as after nearly 30 nights away, the extra room... More

It took us a while to find a good hotel in Rio. Most of the hotels are dated with high prices and poor quality. This hotel was our favorite! We stayed there for 5 nights and felt at home. It decently renovated, 2-3 stars US hotel, but the room and bathroom were big. Shower and toilet worked perfectly. We got... More

My partner and I stayed at the Arena last week for 6 nights. It's a very well maintained property, with almost uniformly great (and very helpful & friendly) staff. The location is great for relaxing, for beach walking (and watching) and for all the typical touristy stuff. And it's not all that far a taxi ride to the Centro, Lapa,... More

It's literally beach front. They have a great breakfast, and free Wi-Fi in common areas, including the roof deck! Their pool is tiny, but with the beach across the street, no need. Tiny gym but again, get your cardio running along the beach. Prime location, close to restaurants, super market, bus stops, etc. Rooms are clean, nothing fancy, by don't... More

If you are looking for a nice new business hotel with high-speed Internet and a business center on Copacabana Beach, then this is definitely NOT the place for you. Despite the advertisements all over the Internet, all over Tripadvisor, on the hotels own website, and on the walls of the hotel, this hotel does not deliver what it promises. NOT... More
