We stayed at this hotel for a few nights whilst visiting Brazil!!! We arrived fairly late and on arrival we were upgraded to a suite which really was fantastic, we were then taken to our room and left to get on with unpacking and sleeping. The room was spectacular!!! We had a separate little bedroom with a couch and another... More

Our stay at the Arena while in Rio in may 2014 was excellent. The central location right on Copacabana Beach was exactly what we wanted, and we felt safe at all times. We walked everywhere & ate near by......it was all an excellent experience. The Hotel breakfast was as good as you would get anywhere....and the staff were friendly &... More

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

Very clean and well kept. The building, in my opinion, was the prettiest to be seen driving through Copacabana! I like the privacy that the elevator has; an access card only works for the room you're in. It won't go to other floors except the rooftop pool and the main ground floor where the restaurant is. The service was very... More

Lovely stay at this hotel. The view of the Copacabana beach from the sea facing rooms are simply the best. Spent seven nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just a walk across the street to the beach and the lovely bars located all along the beach. I've been told that the area has been cleaned up in the... More

Very good hotel, perfectly located to explore Rio. The views from the pool are stunning, but you may p not be as lucky with the views from your bedroom. Breakfast buffet was nice and varied. There is a taxi rank just outside, which is very convenient. The organised tours of Rio (including visits to Cristo Redentor and Sugarloaf mountain, etc)... More

This hotel is very well located just in front of the Copacabana beach and on the third Post. The breakfast is a beautiful buffet with all fresh fruits, varied cheese, different breads, eggs, pastries etc... From the breakfast restaurant we have a view on the beach. We had a room on the 13 floor and from our room we had... More

The Arena has basic rooms with nice bathrooms. The breakfast is nice and the restaurant and bar area is more than adequate. If you want luxury then pay more and stay at the palace. The arena offers a great central location and the rooftop bar/ pool area is lovely. We found it hard to find any restaurants that offered good... More
