Stayed for 2 nights and it was a perfect experience. The rooms are neat, tidy and spacious. Not to mention the perfect view of the beach! I asked the hotel staff for a beach-front view and they were gracious in providing that without hesitation. The staff, especially Natalia, were also extremely helpful - being my first time in Rio i... More

Stayed here for one night and as I said in the title the hotel is nice and clean and it seems to be quite new for Brazil standards. I only stayed for one night but would stay here again no problem. They speak perfect English at reception as this is a bonus here at all times! Breakfast was nice and... More

Very friendly stuff, clean and new rooms. Fitness room very small, could be better. Rich Breakfast and with street view to Copacabana. Would come back again. A nice supermarket within 5 minutes, and a few good restaurants. Free WIFI at the Lobby and at the bar on the top floor.

We were in Rio for a wedding and stayed a week at the Arena. Our ocean view room was contemporary in design with many eco-friendly features. We appreciated the convenience of a refrigerator, wi-fi, safe, and flip-flops in our room. We were bowled over by the breakfast buffet, which featured different offerings each morning. The rooftop bar and pool area... More

On Copacabana beach, very central, fantastic views. Ocean view room, upgraded to a suite on arrival. We found the aircon oppressive in the bedroom and had to switch off to get a good nights sleep. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Reasonable breakfast, loved trying different foods. Fab breads. Poor coffee though. Roof terrace small, with a plunge pool. But you... More

Arena hotel is what you would expect from any normal 4 star hotel. Staff are nice, rooms are decent and great views of Copacabana beach if you get a sea facing room. The one thing that let the hotel down was the breakfast, I mean who serves chicken nuggets first thing in the morning. Overall good hotel and we stayed... More

the hotel is smack in the middle of Copacabana Beach. You can walk either way. 100's of restaurants within walking distance. we had a nice ocean view room on the 12th floor. the elevators always require your room card in order to get there (for security). everything in the room worked well. the staff was friendly and helpful. the price...

Really impressed and had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel which is in a great location directly opposite Copacabana beach, midway along the beach road. amazing views of Guanamara bay, Sugar Loaf mountain and at the rear of the hotel Christ the Redeemer. Service from the staff was excellent particularly Victor on reception, who is incredibly knowledgeable and nothing... More

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
