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.

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

This Hotel is steps away from the Copacabana beach, the service was great I felt welcomed and the rooms were clean and modern. The front desk speaks English and there are tons of nice restaurants and shopping in the area. You can also see the Christo Statue from the roof top bar while enjoying a Capprinia ! At night enjoy...

Copacabana doesn't live up to its romantic image nor do most of the hotels in the short strip of beachfront. This is however the safest and best location and the Arena is perfectly acceptable. Clean, modern, good breakfast, taxis on the corner. I ran along the beach (turn right for a perfect 5K return run along the beach from the... More
