Firstly this hotel has amazing views of the Copacabana beach from a great rooftop pool area. The pool itself is small but adequate for a quick refreshing dip. However it is a great place to sit and have a caipirinha and you can see from one end of the bay to the other. In comparison to the communal areas the... More

Great location, across from Copacabana Beach. The front desk staff speak fluent English and were very helpful calling cabs and answering questions. Room was nice and clean and ours had a great ocean view. Breakfast buffet was included; fresh fruits, breads, etc. Free Wi-fi, in lobby was nice. Very safe and beautiful area. Would stay here, again.

Stayed at Arena Copacabana for two days. The best of the hotel are the location and the kind people from reception. Rooms well cleaned and confortable. The coffee in the morning is very well served with fruits and natural juices.

Very nice hotel and across the street from the beach. Staff was awesome and English speaking. They even will give you beach towels if you ask. Pool up top was perfect. We spent a lot of time during the day and at night relaxing up there. The only annoying thing was there was no (free) wifi in the rooms...common now... More

The Arena is right in the middle of the Copacabana Beach. Great views from the rooftop pool terrace as well as from the ground floor restaurant serving an excellent included breakfast. The only negative is the finicky elevators. That must read room cards to access your floor.

Hotel is a beachfront property. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and accommodating. The breakfast is good and plentiful. This is not a big chain hotel and I picked it because of its reviews. Perfect accommodations.

The Arena is the first place I stayed at in Rio. Obviously right on the Copacabana, what more could you wish for as an intro to Rio. Great place, comfortable clean room, good reception service, excellent wifi speed. Of course the centre piece of the hotel is the roof swimming pool and bar, the barman has good control of the...
