Stayed 2 nights during the World Cup and as with all hotels in Rio it was hugely overpriced for the standard of accomodation. Discounting that external factor, the Copa Sul was pretty decent. Good, varied breakfast, very comfortable and clean rooms and an excellent location. One comment I would repeat from many other visitors though is the surly and generally... More

The hotel is located on Copacabana, along Atlantic Avenue a short walk to the beach. Hotel Interior looks modern, quiet and pleasant. reception staff try to give courteous and efficient service. The room is spacious and furnished, the beds very comfortable. Breakfast is rich and varied.

Three of us stayed here in a triple room for three nights during the World Cup. The room rate was extortionate but we expected that. the usual rate is reasonable. The location, on Copacabana and Ipanema beach was excellent and there are some reasonable restaurants locally. The reception staff were friendly and professional and managed to get us two tickets...

We stayed at this hotel as part of our 6 week trip, and I wish I had of paid the extra money to upgrade as offered. The hotel was reasonable, but not as good as the others we had on our trip. Location was good though and my husband loved the breakfast (he isn't as concerned at his calorie intake!)... More

The only two good things about this hotel are location and a decent breakfast. Like many hotels in Rio this a perfect example of a hotel stuck in the 80's. Very pretentious but with not much to offer. It is not the cheapest and it is only barely saved by its location between copacabana and ipanema. Don't expect too much... More

The hotel is overall good, clean, very well located (just 2min walk to the beach) and with a good breakfast. The area is nice and safe. What I didn't like: the receptionists. I didn't find them too friendly or smiley. I asked for a taxi to the airport and they arranged a transfer which was not taxi, but maybe a... More

I have to agree with most of the reviews. Clean, well located (at the south end of Copacabana) good breakfast, WiFi free, etc. My AC worked well and the shower was great. I was in a room streetside but noise was not really a factor. Cons: #1 no hairdryer in the room. You have to ask for it and they... More

Everything was OK. Average hotel, very clean. Some recepcionist were not very nice and they did not have an energetic and smiling attitude. In the end the biggest advantage is outstanding breakfast. It was much more than I expected. Big selection of ham, cheese, yoghurts and bread. Various tropical fruits are always present in Brasil. Well located, decent hotel.

Good breakfast, great location, ok room, reception staff ok (they did print our my flight voucher). Negative: The airco failed twice, they fixed it pretty quickly but the last time when we came back in our room it smelled as if someone had smoked in our room, the tv and lights were on.. Unacceptable i think.

Great location, one block from Copacabana and a 5-10m walk to Ipanema. Staff were helpful (bell boys were a little too pushy to help, obviously for tips, which got a bit irritating at times). The rooms was basic (but we'd paid for a cheaper room anyway) but very clean. Shower was amazing. Wi-Fi was pretty infuriating to connect to from... More
