Well the hotel was lovely, the staff were great. The breakfast was amazing. Our friends who were also staying here had their cash card cloned during the course of the holiday and even though it was nothing to do with the hotel they went the extra mile to get them to the police to report it, arranging car and interpreter....

The Copacabana Palace is where US Presidents stay when they come to Rio. It is a magnificent hotel in what I would call a Colonial Style. We had a suite overlooking Copacabana Beach and I have to tell you the room was amazing. Everything is first class at this resort. The beds and towels are perfect. The staff cannot do... More

The effortless efficiency of the staff on our arrival could only be matched by the quiet elegance of the hotel. set right on frenetic Copacabana Beach, with stunning views along the bay, the Palace offers an oasis of tranquility. The restaurants were excellent and had varied cuisine, although thanks to the excellent recommendations of the concierge, we found many excellent... More

Very good location of the hotel. Personnel is polite, professional and patient. Food is very good as well. It is also very good to know that so many famous people have been visiting Rio and staying in Copacabana Palace. Thank you very much.

Stunning colonial hotel that lives up to it's reputation. The rooms are large, beds excellent and a decent amount of attention to detail. There is a good choice of restaurants and the breakfast is excellent. The 24 hour heated pool in the courtyard is exceptionally large. Great location with the beach a few steps away. Relatively inexpensive for the quality... More

The opulent facade of the building looks like a huge wedding cake, it's massive but elegant.

Understated luxury at every corner, attentive and courteous service, large rooms, and the best breakfast buffet I have ever had. I personally prefer swimming in Copacabana, but admit that Ipanema is a nicer area, but if you are going to splurge on a hotel stay, it is worth staying at the Palace and making the trip to Ipanema when you...

Copacabana Palace hotel is my favorite hotel, staff are quite competent and pleasant, rooms are great and functional and they serve an excellent breakfast buffet with a wide array of tropical fruits. The overnight flight from New York to Rio can be challenging but once I'm sitting by the pool at the hotel, I'm good and ready to go!

Friends told us that there is no other option for a short break in Rio than the Copacabana Palace hotel. Through booking.com we got an excellent deal (although a 5 star hotel is never cheap - but we got a lot of value for our money!). The location of the hotel is just amazing, facing the famous Copacabana beach. When... More
