The Copacabana Palace harkens back to an elegant era of the 1920s -- retaining the charm and grace of a bygone era, but with all the modern conveniences of the 21st century. The hotel consists of two buildings, each with its own individual style: The original "main building," built in 1923, has the feel of Monte Carlo, and the newer... More

What a wonderful stay in Rio. The Copacabana Palace lived up to our high expectations. We booked through AmEx fine hotels and got upgraded to a gorgeous two room suite with two terraces. The buffet breakfast was delicious, especially the fruit, which took up over half the spread. The mango literally just melts in your mouth. But the best part... More

The service from arrival to exit is simply outstanding, all staff are always super attentive without exception, whenever they want information or a tip the staff try to detail the most of this information.

Good hotel, but overpriced. Yes, large and well-equipped rooms, however shower was not working properly, location is far from ideal and poor service at the restaurant. Again, not that the hotel isn't good, but it's not what you would expect from a US$400-500 / night hotel: - Location: despite being the most famous beach in Rio, Copacabana is a declining... More

We went to the pool side restaurant to enjoy a nice lunch experience. When i informed the hostess we were just going to eat there, and were not guests of the hotel, her attitude changed completely. She became very passive aggressive, telling me there were no tables available, when i could clearly see there were 7 or 8 outside tables... More

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.
