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

I have been amazed with this hotel. The position right on the main beach an amazing view from the room or pool deck on the top floor. Food has been good. The reception and restaurant staff are fluent in English. A very special thanks is for Aline in reception who spent hours searching tracing and tracked my lost luggage she... 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

Good location (just in front of the beach), clean, nice view, nice staff, good breakfast, nice shower. The bar at the pool is not expensive. Ask for a higher floor to avoid noise from the beach/street.

Facilities could be better, if you don't get a room on the Atlantica coast line it's not worth it. There is a constant noise on the back of the building, very annoying. Room service food that hasn't been prepared by the restaurant is crap. -----------------------

The Hotel looks great from outside, you are at the first row in the middle of copacabana beach - cannot be better. But there are many things why you should choose another Hotel nearby; The first picture shows the bed which we found just as we arrived (not that clean). Due to the reason that we had a room with...
