Let's start with the little bit of down side: The outside of this building and the lobby are nothing to ride home about. The lobby is simple but modern and tiny by US lobby standards. Now the good part: I had reserved the Deluxe Room Sea View (their lowest price room) and found out that there are two types of... More

I stayed at the Hotel for 4 nights and the services were impeccable the staff were very helpful. I made the mistake of actually booking myself in for 3 nights instead of 4 and I thought I would have a hard time getting my booking extended but it was done without any hassle. The hotel views are beautiful in the... More

Ideally located in the centre of Copacobana and a short hop across the road to the beach where the hotel provides facilities. We were advised that we had been upgraded and certainly the view of Copacobana beach both ways was spectacular. Ask for a room on the front as whilst you may see the beach from all rooms I am...

Good Location right across the beach. Room quality was ok. Air con is too strong. Shower room is small. Free wifi and there's a water kettle for tea and coffee. There's a small patio right outside my room with a table and two chairs to sit and see the beach view. Quality of service is far from satisfactory and very... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the breakfast selection was plentiful and we ate twice at the pool bar and would recommend the pesto chicken baguette! The pool area and new gym were very nice as were the staff. I loved the little extras they thought of, eg. free flip flops and a newspaper specific to your country... More

I had a short stay at the Porto Bay Hotel during the first week of the 2014 World Cup. The hotel staff were all very helpful 24/7 and the amenities were sufficient for a comfortable stay. Rooms were not plush by any means but they had all that was needed for a short stay in Rio. Breakfast was outstanding with... More

This was a terrible hotel. I can't point to anything good about it other than the instant access to Copa Cabana beach. Not one employee working at the hotel knew English while I stayed there. They didn't have an iron and for some reason I could not get any of my laundry washed using their service during my stay. The... More

Definitely Porto Bay has a privileged position in Copacabana. If you have the opportunity of a high floor room with views you will be able to enjoy great Copacabana views. You can go for a walk from Copacabana to Ipanema (about 8km back and forth to the beginning of Ipanema, or if you do until the end of Ipanema 14km... More

The hotel itself is fine - the location, the service, the room size... And the terrace on the top floor where you can enjoy a spectacular view. However it really needs to be renovated, it's old and somewhat shabby. Especially when you are in your room, that is really spacious, cosy and with good lighting, you keep thinking that with... More
