I stayed here for 3 weeks in Jan/Feb 2015. Although it was a business trip, the location of this hotel made sure that I got to enjoy the times that I was not working. Right opposite the beach, close to good restaurants and accessible to almost any part of the city. I took a beach facing room (do that!). The... More

perfect setting , next to the beach . perfect view - glass facade full ocean view , perfect staff - the front desk staff helps you with insights no book can tell. and a roof top pool (even though small) is great to unwind at the end of the day! will surely come back!

Modern, quiet, right in the middle of Copacabana Beach. Helpful staff, decent free breakfast. Reasonably priced for the area. Incredible beach view from room and also from rooftop pool/lounge/bar area. Highly recommended!

I chose this hotel based on the proximity to the office and really enjoyed my stay. I have zero complaints other than the AC unit hummed a little but easily fixed by ear plugs. And the wifi is a little spotty. The view of Copacabana from my room and from the roof deck hotel was amazing. And you can see... More

This was my first visit to Rio and this hotel was the venue for an event I was participating in, so I spent one night. The hotel was VERY accommodating, allowing early check in and late check out. Very much appreciated. The room was not fancy, but clean and comfortable with ample space (and a great shower!)... and I had... More

We are unlikely to be staying at Arena Copacabana even though we have 3 confirmed bookings with them for 3 nights during Carnival in Rio - Feb, 2016. They have just emailed us declaring that the bookings have been cancelled for no just cause and have advised the new booking conditions for rooms during Carnival -daily rates have doubled with...

I stay at Arena Copacabana Hotel whenever I travel to Rio. The staff is friendly and very helpful, the location is wonderful and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for good service, comfort and location.

At check in, the receptionist upgraded mme to a suite (without even asking) because he saw I had asked a room on high floors, which was not available; so i was on the 4th floor, but in a very nice suite. Also the gym has good Technogym equipment, even though it's quite small...

I really liked Arena. Located halfway in Copacabana beach, this modern and stylish hotel boasts a fantastic terrace view overlooking Copacabana beach. Rooms are great (although have tiny windows), perhaps rooms facing the beach are even better, breakfast is great with great variety and food preparation quality. I recommend this hotel, and can't wait to try Arena Leme when it's... More
