First they stress that you keep your valuables in the safe. BUT every time we used the safe in the room we could not get it open again. Staff had to come up and open safe with a device they had. This made us late two nights for tours. Bathroom is DIRTY, entrance floors are dirty but could be nice... More

My son and I have just enjoyed two nights at Olinda hotel and I highly recommend it! The position is perfect for restaurants, opposite the beach and the underground train to the city a short walk away, staff very helpful and english speaking, rooms uncomfortable, showers hot and the breakfast DELICIOUS!!! What more can you want?! Excellent

What a great experience we had at the Olinda Rio Hotel. I traveled to Brazil from Arizona and spent most of the trip in São Paulo but drove to Rio for a 5 day get away to see Copacabana for my first time. I spent a few hours looking for the perfect hotel that matched our location preferences, cost, and... More

Right at Copacabana, nice family hotel, rooms are beautiful and spacious, breakfast is rich and tasteful, great value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to return. Staff is able to speak English. Just cross the road for a morning swim in the Atlantic Ocean.

Excellent location just across famous Copacabana . Friendly and accommodating stuff. Great location to take a bus or subway to visit RIO's attractions like Sugarloaf, Statue of Jesus Christ, famous Maracana Stadium or shopping in city centre. The bus stop is just acrid the hotel. Draw back is luck of swimming pool, but the price comparing to other hotels is... More

This hotel is a large sea front hotel in need of a little modernising but it is still quite charming. The room we had was a decent size but the air-conditioning was preset so to have it on meant getting out the blankets - which kind of defeats the point. Breakfast is pretty good and you get free towels for... More

We were wandering the Avenida Atlantica strip looking for hotels that could accommodate three people and stumbled upon Olinda Rio. Old building with tons of character. Room was great with three individual beds. Front desk employees were super helpful. Great breakfast & free WiFi!

Excellent location for this price. The rooms are very nice (seaside recommended) and have a very good bed. Showering can be a bit difficult when u are tall. Breakfast is ok but nothing special. WiFi is very slow. The staff at the reception is friendly and helpfull. You can park in a public parking garage. Or you can ask one... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
