This is a modern hotel, very friendly staff and with good amenities. Great location and fantastic views of Copacabana. You can also see the Sugar Loaf and the Corcovado from the pool area. Superb buffet breakfast complimented with a glass of champagne. I would certainly return to his hotel.

This was a clean and modern hotel. It was a very nice stay in a good location. We had a fantastic view of the ocean and the view from the rooftop is spectacular. You get a view from Leme (with sugarloaf in the background) down to the end of Copacabana. I would stay here again if in Rio.

Having booked a suite thru Trip Advisor, at a very sensible rate, we were very pleased with our choice. Ideal location in the centre of the Copacabana, very helpful staff, nice well equipped rooms, good breakfast buffet and a small but adequate pool on the roof with a bar. My Wife and I look forward to returning soon!

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
