Porto Bay is a solid choice if you want to stay at Copacabana - splurge on a room with a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean - its a breathtaking view all day and night round! The hotel is rather in the beginning of Copa, which means its a fair way to Ipanema, Leblon and other places you... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of October. The room was quite large, very clean although a little basic in decoration. We had a side facing room with balcony but it still had a great view of the beach. The bed was huge (a king I guess) and was very comfortable. We had no noise issues with... More

When we booked the hotel in early 2010 it was top of the trip advisor ratings for Rio but having been there we don't know why. In our opinion it felt like an average 3 star hotel with very good views. We upgraded our room to get the floor to ceiling windows which did provide excellent views of the Copacabana,... More

Despite being advertised as a 4 star hotel, believe me: you will find a 5 star! The refurbished rooms are even better, there are many choices of TV channels, air conditioning working pretty well, a complete and tasteful breakfast, and – most important – a nice view from the beach inside the room. From the reception to the restaurant, you... More

My wife and I stayed here (actually back in June 2009) for our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier. From the welcome rose petals and champagne (while we were waiting for the room) it was very well put together.
