We stayed here on two different occasions. The first night we had a regular room which was average sized. It had a small tub with a wonderful shower, albeit the bathroom fixtures are a bit tired and it can take a while to figure out how to turn the water and hot water on and off. We then moved to...

Our stay at the hotel was good. I just thought the value for money wasn't quite there. I do understand all hotels in the area are expensive so this could be a little harsh. Just thought for what we paid the rooms would have been a little nicer. Overall a good stay though and an amazing view from the balcony.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December and enjoyed our stay. The location across from Copacabana beach was excellent and the views from our balcony and the top floor pool area were outstanding. The breakfast buffet was very good with a wide range of choices, we didn't use the restaurant in the evening. The pool area was... More

We stayed her for four nights and had the best time in Rio. Not a flash hotel at first glance, but the location was excellent. It was an early birthday trip for me, and the manager upgraded us to a superior room, with balcony at no extra charge. We had a full view of Copacabana beach and watching the sunrise... More

Stayed here 5 nights in Jan 2015 - based on the excellent reviews I read here on Tripadvisor. However my experience at Porto Bay Hotel was underwhelming, bordering on disappointing. My complaints are not 'major' (and complaints such as noise levels need to be balanced with the superior and convenient location), while my stay was overall pleasant, however I did... More
