Stayed here recently for business, hotel is in great location right on copacabana beach. Check in was a little slow, a fairly long line, room small and basic. Mini bar, cable TV, free wifi, small desk and chair. My room was on the side of the building and could see the beach if I cranked my head out of the... More

I stayed a couple of times at the Pestana Rio Atlantico. I find it a practical hotel when working in Rio. The staff and amenities allow me to accomplish both the work I need to do and then relax in off hours. Nice staff, small but practical gym with view on Copacabana and very pleasant pool on the roof top.... More

I went in the middle of the Brazilian Summer, so it was quite hot here reaching temperatures upwards of 104 in some cases. This would have been fine if only the air conditioning in our room had worked. With no rooms left to switch to, this was my fate. The halls of the hotel were always hot and humid which... More

We stayed in Pestana Rio Atlantica Hotel and we do not regret our choice. Although there were a few minor issues (breakfast was exactly the same for 10 days, the room was not spotless), we do not regret our choice. All the staff we dealt with were very helpful and pleasant (do not trust the reviews of the travellers who... More

We have experience with the Pestana hotels through their satellite hotels - the Pousadas, in Portugal. The Pousadas are incredible and we can now confirm that staying in a Pestana, especially one such as the Rio Atlantico is also incredible. The staff, service, room layout and all of the amenities, including the best rooftop pool deck along Copacabana created a... More

I've written a review before on this excellent value for money hotel in Rio and did not expect to have to write again, however each time I come back to Pestana (3rd time this year) I only find out that PESTANA gets better and better.

I have never written a review of a hotel on day two, and while still here! The service in this hotel, however, warrants an immediate caution. With the exception of the porter (Rone) who had the courtesy of introducing himself by name, the staff are ill trained and seem to regard the guests as an occupational inconvenience. This rang through... More

Stayed here as part of OVC/Azamara post cruise package. It was overpriced for a room facing a wall with a small side view of the beach. Buffet breakfast was good, rooftop pool has beautiful view. Price we paid was way too overpriced compared to guests who booked it independently.
