We were very happy with the location. Also after reading other reviews we were also happy with the hotel. Our room was comfortable, the air conditioning worked well and the bathroom was fine with hot water. The bed was comfortable and the staff was helpful. English though was not spoken by many of the staff so communication was a little... More

The hotel is located in a very nice area and close to several late night restaurants and one block from the famous Copacabana beach and 5 blocks from the Fort of Copacabana, where you can get a little bit of history and a nice breakfast!! The hotel staff was friendly and greeted us nicely. Our room was very cozy (better... More

First the good: front desk and doorbell are really polite and eager to serve. Minibar well stocked. Overall look: everything looks like 1975, but in a bad way. Bathtub is brownish for decades of use. All bathroom looks out of date. Same thing with the rest of the furniture in the room. Hot water: left the shower open for 30... More

We were absolutely delighted to find that we were just one block from Copacabana beach, and two from Ipanema. The hotel itself is a disappointment - it is clear that they have done some renovations and our bathroom was stunning, with the best shower we had in South America. But the bedroom was floored with some awful mock wood, and... More

The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. However, the price of a double room seemed to us to be a bit steep. Everything was extremely old and slightly shabby, which we weren't expecting at that price. The location was great, right between Ipanema and Copacabana.

Of course the cost of accommodation was going to be high but that was expected during the World Cup period so cant really complain. We really didn't spend that much time in the hotel itself but overall there's very little we could complain about. Although finding prepaid sim cards was quite hard, WIFI is advertised throughout the hotel but it... More

Stayed for 9 nights. Hotel room a bit old i.e bedding and design but I guess ok as you just sleep there. Won't recommend this hotel for the upper class people. Room clean. Bathroom smelly (drains) and shower in bath not so nice (using old plastic shower curtains). Lying on the bed you can smell the mould from the bathroom... More

The hotel is dated. The bedding is probably from the 80’s. Despite that, the hotel is clean. So if you are on a budget and want to stay on Copacabana beach (which is 1 block away), it is an option. The staff spoke English but would not assist in booking anything not through the hotel- we wanted to take the... More

I stayed for 3 nights during the World Cup. The location is excellent, 3 minutes walk to the beach and most amenities close by. The rooms were slightly tired, and the beds felt like they were not the best. The bathroom, on the other hand, was excellent with a very large, powerful shower. The breakfast room was ok, and the...

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.
