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

Nevertheless Portobay was very supportive to this affect and assisted where needed, although we did not expect much. Eventually.

Never difficult to find, the hotel is centrally located and known by most of the taxi drivers. Modern lobby with friendly and helpful staff.
