Newly renovated, we had the best view of the Copacabana beach. The morning breakfast(included) was good. Great location ...walk to many stores and restaurants. Nice rooftop pool with bar. Our flight was at 10:30pm so I asked for late checkout. Since the hotel was not completely booked, they were very accommodating and let us check out at 4:00pm. Front desk... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 12/27/14- 1/3/15. Me and my wife had a good time. We enjoyed the hospitality of the English speaking front desk staff, the clean room (1402), and the Brazilian people in general. I got by with my broken Portuguese, mixed with my broken Spanish, when I needed to communicate. We only ate the... More

Just finished 4 day stay and believe we had exceptional service and value at the Arena. Location is fantastic, get a room with a view 604. Reception staff absolutely great. Victor, the main man, was not only very knowledgeable but would go out of his way to help. Rooms were clean WI FI worked fine. Breakfast good Roof top bar... More

I have stayed in many hotels along the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema--the Windsor Atlantica (recently), the Westin, the Praia Ipanema--and this one is far beyond the others in terms of service, style, efficiency, price and unpretentious ease. The front desk staff here are really exceptional, especially by Rio standards--they speak good English, they'll print out one's documents for free,... More

We stayed at this hotel from January 3 to 6 after spending 31 days on a cruise ship around South America. We arrived early and had no issue checking into our room. The staff were awesome - the front desk staff are very friendly and helped us book a tour to a Favela through a great company. The beds initially... More

Fantastic hotel with great staff and unbeatable view! Modern furnishings and well kept. We arrived at 10, but only let into our room at 3:30. (Was told it'd be available at 12, 1, and definitely by 2:00 check in). The wifi infrastructure doesn't handle the demand and toucan have trouble connecting. That's minor compared to the pluses though. Breakfast is... More

This hotel felt a bit seedy but thankfully had adjoining rooms when I traveled there recently with my family of four. The Copacabana area in general is a bit rundown but the staff at the Hotel Arena were very ambivalent to travelers (not many from North America it seemed) and do NOT expect any English! The roofdeck with a pool... More

The day we arrived w took a walk along the beachwalk and were surprised that seemingly everyone was walking in one direction. We discovered there was a concert on the beach that night. After we explored, we went up the elevator to the sun deck, not realizing we would have a panoramic view of the beach, and, we could hear... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and loved this hotel. The staff are great and the location amazing with the beach out front and many shops & retaurants in the streets behind. The rooms are very good and we were very pleased that we spent a few extra $s for a Deluxe Ocean View Room as the views... More

This was my first time in Rio. We did a standard family holiday with four people. We stayed in two rooms. The hotel is a great location Copacabana right near the beach. The hotel reception was friendly and was knowledgable. However, we did get reccomended to go to a subpar rodizio restaurant not worth the price. I was looking for... More
