The hotel looks nice, but the fact that hotel staff allowed a construction work at 7:30am in a room just above the room we stayed, made our stay horrible and we couldn't sleep. Although we complained twice about the noise with staff members, they did not stop. This show little consideration with guests and we were deeply disappointed.

My husband and I opted to try an affordable hotel which wasn't a member of a big chain and yet had a prime location along Copacabana Beach, so we came across Porto Bay! And I don't regret it. The rooms are on the small side, although they are actively being renovated (hence the loud banging during day-light hours). The pool... More

Hotel is situated on main avenue next to Copacabana Beach. Our room on the 24th Floor had a magnificent view over and along the beach, with sunrises and sunsets thrown in, plus the vista around Rio including Christ the Redeemer statue. Room had been updated and was of a very good standard. Staff were helpful particularly in reception (they got... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel two days ago. In addition, I need to say that the experience was bad. The housekeeping department of this hotel has big problems: Bed set up was missing one of their linen and I needed to ask the reception two times for getting it. Bed linen with holes and two “small hairs”.... More

We have been in the hotel on a family trip and we loved! We were a large group and we had a fantastic experience in Porto Bay Rio Internacional. The rooms were great, always very well cleaned and very spacious and with a superb view over the sea of Copacabana. The hotel staff was always very efficient, helpful and attentive.... More

The location is great for the main attractions (2mn walk to the shuttles to Corcovado, in front the Copacabana calçadão,...) and the staff was very helpfull dealing with our requests (airport transfers, early meals,...). I also highly recomend the view from the... More
