We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of our dream trip to Rio & The Amazon. We also had a reservation here for 2 nights at the end of our trip (after spending 2 days in Manaus & 5 days on the Amazon River), but had decided by the end of the first day that we would be... 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...

It is a smaill, confortable, well located hotel in front of Copacabama Beach. It has a nice Copacabana Beach view from the roof. The breakfast is very good and with different options from one day to other.

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.

The hotel has a very good location facing the Copacabana beach, close to shops, restaurants and metro. We had a room facing the ocean and it was pleasant and clean. The bed was hard for us but there are people who like it.

We stayed here for one night in an ocean view suite. On check-in, the desk was unattended for a while but a bell boy took our bags and gave us registration forms while the other went to get a receptionist. The initiative and service was very appreciated. As we checked in, we inquired about airport timings etc the receptionist, without... More

I was in Rio for a conference and stayed at the Arena because it was close to the headquarters hotel. But what a nice surprise. The room was comfortable, if not necessarily the most modern. And it was clean and well maintained, with a decent bathroom. Bearing in mind the size of a typical hotel room in Brazil, this was... More

We spent three nights at the Arena Copacabana hotel. We arrived quite late and exhausted from our flight from Sydney to find that my daughter and I had to share a bed. We were told by disinterested staff that twin beds were not available. The room was tired and dated. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable, as were the... More

I stayed here whilst attending the TED Global Conference. The rood was very clean and tidy, nice comfortable beds and free wifi in the lobby , but needed to include tea and coffee facilities, this was the only issue I had. Breakfast was brilliant, a huge variety every morning and a variety throughout the week. The staff were great and... More
