The Porto Bay hotel is situated slightly north of the middle of Copacabana Beach, and from the rooftop pool area you have an amazing view in both directions. Sitting poolside sipping on a Caipirinha, just enjoying the view over Copacabana's beach life (and the spectacular backdrop beyond), is an experience that will stay with you all your life. Also highly... More

We had to unexpectedly change hotels because our reservation was not executed properly, leaving us one night short. Found this hotel by chance on the Internet and didn't have great expectations (had walked by it several times and it didn't look like much from the outside). We were in it for a surprise. The room was modern and comfortable with... More

I was very happy with this hotel. The room was comfortable and quiet, the breakfasts were excellent, and it has a lovely roof terrace with sweeping panoramic views of Copacabana, Corcovado and the surrounding areas. I also ate some delicious food for dinner in the restaurant. The hotel also has some sun loungers/parasols on the section of Copacabana beach just... More

it is one of my favourite as although it is locaed in Copacabana close to massive touristic hotels, it keeps a good size to provide business travellers with good service and nice space on the roof on 20th.

The lower floor room right in front of the elevator was spacious and clean with a view of the building in front. We asked to be moved to a room away from the elevator and with a better view and were granted our request, the room was at a higher floor, but the view was not that much better. You... More

My husband and I absolutely loved Porto Bay! The location was perfect, right across from Copacabana Beach, next to Copacabana Palace. The breakfast every morning was excellent, close to 10 different types of fresh fruit juices, many different fresh fruits including papaya, guava, cashew fruit, soursop fruit, watermelon, apples, tangerines, oranges...the list goes on!

After paying a full rate for my room over $300 USD, I arrived to a very small and secluded room in the back of the hotel and despite there being many other rooms available, staff refused to change unless I paid a premium for such change.
