Many reviewers rave about this hotel and it is often billed as the best hotel in Brazil. Well that may be the case I have only stayed in three and it was the best of the bunch. The location is superb if you are a beach person because 50 yards away over the road you have about 4 kilometers of... More

You can't help but feel as if Clark Cable can come strolling through the lobby at the Copa. It's gorgeous, elegant, comfortable and iconic. The pool scene is decadent, you're steps from the beach (beach service available) and in the heart of a neighborhood that is safe, fun and simply stunning.

Dear Guest, I'd like to thank you very much for sharing your comments and impressions. I am very glad to receive a kind message from you. As a matter of curiosity, Clark Gable was not one of our guests but some actors and actresses of his generation stayed here. We have several portraits of stars of the past at our... More

In Rio and had to visit 'The Palace' after all the televised high profile attention it received prior to the World Cup. Everything it's made out to be and not at all precocious. The staff were most welcoming and attentive willing to enjoy conversation with us and explain the buffet arrangement. Food was first class accompanied by a very nice... More

Stayed at some fine hotels around the world but I think this trumps them all. From the moment you arrive you are hut with service, amazing architecture, fine rooms and again service with a smile!!! Highly recommend and would certainly not hesitate to recommend.

This hotel is an absolute dream, of course the surroundings are fabulous but that would be nothing without the superb team of staff whom without exception exceeded our expectations. A friendly but professional approach which is not stuffy but caring is definitely to be expected and the room we stayed in was to die for with amazing soft linen, a... More

I've stayed at Copacabana Palace many times, and my last stay was REALLY disappointing. I'll start with the positive points first. I love the comfortable bed, clean room, hardworking bell boys, pleasant breakfast staff, and the swimming pool/attendants. Many other things were better when Orient Express was operating it. That's why I'd been returning to this hotel. However, Belmond isn't... More

Have always wanted to stay here and when I found I had to visit Rio for a conference, I decided to book us in here at the end of our holiday after the conference. I booked months in advance through tripadvisor and got an amazing price for a lovely luxurious room. From the minute we crossed the threshold until we... More
