The location of this hotel was it's only saving grace. We felt safe and had the beach as well as shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself was pretty average. I've never stayed in such a noisy place. Food was bad, breakfast ok and the shower was ridiculous. Will visit Rio again but not this hotel

Superb location, 5 minutes walk from Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach and General Osario metro station, which links to everywhere else. The hotel itself is nothing special really, serving a mixture of Brazilian and international tourists and people there to hang out on the beach by day and party by night . Rooms are plain and clean although down slightly threatening... More

We stayed here for two nights during the World Cup and due to that the price was very inflated. However, the hotel has a great location- 2 blocks from Copacabana and a 10 minute walk to Ipanema. It's in a neighborhood so it's very quiet (even with the energy of the World Cup!). The rooms themselves aren't anything special. They... More

Hotel has a convenient location and is in short walking distance to copacabana and ipanema beaches and metro. Great internet service and a good included breakfast. No view of water and certainly not to the standard of the copacabana palace hotel, but nice rooms, cleAn and in walking distance to everything you want to see.

This hotel is nice, standing in a good and safe location at the end of Copacabana, 10 minutes walk from Ipanema. The hotel´s amiable staff are great...you will never have to lift a finger! Room was decent and compact with sufficient amenities. Rooftop terrace with pool and sauna is good with panoramic views of the city. Will stay there again.

This hotel was in a pretty good location, close to shops and various beaches. The staff here speak English, which has been VERY helpful. Breakfast was also nice, plenty of fruit! Overall a good experience during worldcup season.

Easy walk to either Copacabana or Ipanema beaches - great for visiting the night markets on the beachfront. Rooms were spacious. Good buffet breakfast, helpful staff. Our room on one of the higher floors at the back of the hotel had quite a spectacular view of the flavella on the hillside.

I only stayed at the Hotel for one night, but it was enough for me to say that it was brilliant, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the room was excellent it could easily accommodate me and my two cousin. But the best is the location, it's right between Copacabana and Ipanema, both are the best beaches in Rio.... More

We stayed at the South American Copacabana hotel as part of our Argentina and Brazil tour over Christmas 2013, so although we never chose the hotel ourselves we were very pleased with the accommodation. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. There is a lovely pool on the top of the hotel and a lot of choice of food at... More

I guess the best thing about this hotel is its location. It is perfectly located between Copacabana and Ipanema, exactly where you wanna be when in Rio! The staff was nice though they spoke very little English. The rooms were spacious and had everything you'd expect from a 4 star hotel. The bathroom was big and nice, which makes a... More
