1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

To begin - I would like to disclose that I would have otherwise rated this hotel 4 stars based purely on the staff and hotel itself. The staff I interacted with were all very pleasant and rooms were nice. I say all this, because I have come to find out that the hotel cleaning staff went through a purse that... More

Do not book tours through reception staff they charge double the price (total rip off) , book on the Internet... More

Stayed here twice in June 2015. Loved it. Close to Copacabana (cannot get closer). Safe area. Clean hotel, good food. Modern rooms and helpful staff. They let us place our luggage for safekeeping the 10 days in between our stays (while we were in the Amazon).

I stayed in the Arena for five days on a recent business trip. The hotel was clean and modern and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was well catered for with an excellent buffet. Although the restaurant food selection was a little limited the helpings were more than generous and the quality was good. Overall I thought the hotel... More

Excellent Hotel, Nice Location and very helpful staff. Rooms are extremely neat. The hotel, also is located in a very safe commercial area where you just can go for a walk and feel people's energy all over. Adorei

We had a suite on floor 13. It was spacious, ikea ish, and had wifi in the rooms for a fee but free in the lobby. It was in a perfect location and well run and the service was impeccable. The noise on floor 4 was apparently loud but good where we were. I would definitely stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and we were very very impressed. The hotel itself is very clean, stylish and luxurious. The staff... amazing. We become quite close with a few of the lobby staff since they genuinely wanted to just talk to us. Breakfast - very good. So much food to choose from! The dining area... More

Nice and modern beach front hotel. Standard rooms, a bit minimalist for my taste. Pool was small but a nice choice for a drink and relaxing time. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a variety of international/local food, real strong coffee was served, which I really enjoyed it. An adequate 3 US stars hotel if you want to be in the... More

Great corner room with an awesome view of the Copacabana beach on one side and the hill with Christ, the statue on the other side. Very clean, friendly staff, great rooftop pool, wonderful breakfast included - made my first trip to Rio a most memorable experience!
