Rio's most famous hotel is also it's best. This iconic landmark remains one of the most happening places in Rio and it is a joy to stay here. The hotel has an amazing position overlooking Copacabana beach and a large site (by Copacabana standards) which enables them to have an Olympic size pool and generously sized rooms. Our rooms, overlooking... More

First of all I have to say that if there's an Orient Expresss hotel where I'm going, I will usually try to stay there. They have an old school charm that's just wonderful. And I have never had any problems... Until now :( The hotel is nice and has the typical things that you would expect from a luxurious hotel.... More

We stayed at the Copacabana Palace for a birthday treat on our trip to Brazil - it did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in the front door, the entire staff treat you like a very special guest. We had a lovely suite overlooking the iconic Copacabana Beach. The suite was spacious, immaculately clean and luxurious. The hotel sent... More

The Palace is obviously in a prime location overlooking the beach, easy walk to Ipanema and Leblon. The pool is also a great place to relax and spend a day, if you have the time.The service is excellent and the decoration is amazing. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The suite was fantastic, clearly recently upgraded, with a very nice balcony,... More

Stayed here at the end of our trip all over Brazil and was not impressed.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sending your comments. First of all, we would like to tell you that one topic caused us concern: you mentioned a private front beach. Indeed our hotel doesn't have one. So maybe you are referring to another hotel where you stayed in August 2013. Feel free to add some complement to your report. All the... More
