Hotel is in the middle of Copacabana beach strip. Very convenient. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast has good variety. Best part was the staff. Pedro at breakfast was very helpful. The front desk recommended easiest ways to get to Sugarloaf mountain and Cristo de Redentor. Go one block away from the beach for more food choices. Go to the top... More

Had a great 5 night stay. Landed on a corner room so had views on to beach. Roof top pool (very small) and bar had views of "Christ the Redeemer" (to rear) Buffet Breakfasts were excellent and with views over to the beach (though felt guilty eating so much as I saw energetic runners pass by) Close to subways and...

Nice clean room, great breakfast but most of all super friendly and helpful staff. we stayed at two similarly priced hotels on Copacabana and this was by far the better value. Placed pretty central on Copacabana beach

I have stayed here many times over the last five years. The hotel is always clean, safe, well-staffed. The surrounding area is great. Obviously, higher floors facing the beach are better and more expensive, but you also book the side street with a small balcony and a view.

I just came back from staying one week at Arena Copacabana. I was very satisfied with the service, room (I had an ocean view Suite), location and breakfast. The front desk helped me with directions, tours and provided me with voltage converters. To my surprise WiFi was included.The view from the rooftop was spectacular. It's very close to restaurants and... More

The hotel is right across the beach in a quite safe area. The room is basic and clean, however, it is noise if you stay in lower floors. The breakfast is good, the front desk staff is also very informational and the view from roof pool is also very nice. Consider it is marketed as a 4 start hotel, I... More

I had a deluxe room overlooking the beach. The room was good, a little small, but very clean and comfortable. The bed was very hard and they only provide one pillow per person. I have no complaints about the room, but the customer service was poor. The room was not ready when I arrived. They did not explain anything about... More

This hotel has an awesome location directly across from the beach. The rooms are very low end. The toilet water is recycled and they do not use enough chemical treatment so the smell that emits from the toilet is rancid (not feces not urine just foulness). The front desk staff do not have the power to contact management or facilities... More
