While on a family vacation we stayed at the Arena Hotel. An excellent and comfortable stay. We would whole heartily recommend the Arena as an ideal hotel when visiting the area of Copacabana beach. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly female receptionist that offered a warm welcome and supported by attentive portering staff that helped us to our... More

I spent two nights in Rio with my brother (April 2014) We both have been impressed by the location of the hotel (Copacabana beach). The hotel in itself is very clean with spacious rooms. The service is excellent and each member of the staff was able to help us in case of issue. We didn't eat in the restaurant of... More

My partner and I stayed at the Arena last week for 6 nights. It's a very well maintained property, with almost uniformly great (and very helpful & friendly) staff. The location is great for relaxing, for beach walking (and watching) and for all the typical touristy stuff. And it's not all that far a taxi ride to the Centro, Lapa,... More

It's literally beach front. They have a great breakfast, and free Wi-Fi in common areas, including the roof deck! Their pool is tiny, but with the beach across the street, no need. Tiny gym but again, get your cardio running along the beach. Prime location, close to restaurants, super market, bus stops, etc. Rooms are clean, nothing fancy, by don't... More

The staff is really helpful. They welcome you from outside and are willing to help you with any request. Rogerio (Porter) and Rafael (Receptionist) were very friendly and made the difference during my stay. The rooms, the restaurant and rooftop have beautiful views of Rio. Bathroom is very spacious as well as the rooms. Shower with very good pressure and... More

If you are looking for a nice new business hotel with high-speed Internet and a business center on Copacabana Beach, then this is definitely NOT the place for you. Despite the advertisements all over the Internet, all over Tripadvisor, on the hotels own website, and on the walls of the hotel, this hotel does not deliver what it promises. NOT... More

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is almost mid-point of Copacabana beach which is just across the road. The hotel staff at reception were amazingly helpful, they helped us find places, book tours and permitted us a late check out. The breakfast was extensive and we particularly enjoyed a glass of champagne each morning. We had a... More

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. Having arrived early in the morning after an overnight trip. The staff were extremely helpful. They accommodated an early check in, and a late check out the following day. The room was clean and very comfortable. The food in the restaurant was excellent, and once again the staff were courteous and helpful.... More

Location of the hotel is really good as everything seemed readily accessible and we didn't feel unsafe in the area around the hotel or the beach in front. We stayed in a side seaview room, which was very nice as you could see the ocean to the left and the Christ to the right. The room was fairsized, but the... More
