Stayed here for 5 days in May. Very nice location close to the beach and nice restaurants. Clean and modern and friendly staff. Little to do at night as the happening parts of Rio are a taxi or bus ride away. Still reasonably priced and family friendly so definitely recommend.

While it's off the beach, you can walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes. It's also pretty far north, which I liked because I liked walking Copacabana end to end and seeing everything without having to double-back. Lots of restaurants, shopping, etc. in the immediate vicinity, also. It was about 20 reais to get to Ipanema. Very customer-service... More

Stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of 2016. While lobby was modern, rooms looked a little dated. New bedspreads and window coverings would help to give them a more modern look. Rooms were clean but small. But, it's Rio, you shouldn't be spending too much time in your room when you are 5 minutes from the beautiful Copacabana beach.... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a tour group. This moderate hotel is situated within an easy walk of the beach as are several small stores and fast food establishments. Our small room was on the 6th floor overlooking the busy street below and it was adequately furnished, but somewhat dark and dated. The... More

We stayed at the Windsor plaza for 4 nights. Location is great as its 2 blocks from Copacobana beach and a small supermarket to get water and snacks from. There is also a lot of choices for food around the hotel. If you enjoy going for a stroll then it's about an hour walk to Inpanema beach, restaurants and shops... More

This hotel is on the main road into Copacabana, so is convenient to get to by taxi. However, the location is a little busy and somewhat rough for Copa. You get a nice room, and a good free breakfast buffet, for the price. The hotel is well staffed, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are numerous good... 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.
