The location of hotel is great! Directly on the Copacabana beach and the rooms with view worth every penny. Rooms are big and clean with all you need, but a litlle hard bed. Breakfast was ok, with a lots of fruits and quite diversified, aldo some fresh vegetables would have been nice. Internet works so and so, even the paid... More

Friendly and helpful staff where many languages are spoken. The room was a little basic and the bed very firm but the view over Copacabana beach was terrific. The roof top bar also has good views but disappointingly closed around midnight. Apart from the hard bed the only other issue was the very unstable wifi. However if position, view and... More

Arena Copacabana is directly on the beautiful beach. The breakfast was very good and rooms were just fine. They arranged tours for us and made great recommendations for local restaurants. Overall, we had a very good experience at this hotel and in Rio!

I stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The hotel is right opposite the beach and our room had a lovely view. The view from the rooftop pool and bar is even better! Wifi is free in common areas, and paid in the room (though staying on level 3 we were occasionally able to patch in to the free... More

We spent two nights in Arena Copacabana in March 2015. We arrived before 11am and the room was not ready so we left our luggage and we joined a local tour. The reception area didn't give a convincing first impression though; and the guy behind the counter didn't look too friendly. Upon our return in the evening, we were assigned... More

We enjoyed our stay very much at this hotel but it was not without it's faults. For a newer hotel it seems to be degrading due to the lack of maintenance. Our room (505) was ocean facing with a nice seating area. At first glance seem very clean but later we notice little things like areas that weren't dusted or... More

My daughter and I won this trip to Rio from Fox Broadcasting Company, who produced Rio and Rio 2. So our hotel was picked for us and we were excited to see its location. We enjoyed our stay there, our room overlooked the beach. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and the views from the... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks in Jan/Feb 2015. Although it was a business trip, the location of this hotel made sure that I got to enjoy the times that I was not working. Right opposite the beach, close to good restaurants and accessible to almost any part of the city. I took a beach facing room (do that!). The... More

perfect setting , next to the beach . perfect view - glass facade full ocean view , perfect staff - the front desk staff helps you with insights no book can tell. and a roof top pool (even though small) is great to unwind at the end of the day! will surely come back!

Modern, quiet, right in the middle of Copacabana Beach. Helpful staff, decent free breakfast. Reasonably priced for the area. Incredible beach view from room and also from rooftop pool/lounge/bar area. Highly recommended!
