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

I stayed in this hotel for new years eve (Reveillon) party. 28Dec 2013 to 1 Jan 2014. Fantastic location, easy walk to both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Despite Rio's bad reputation, felt quite safe to walk around the hotel at night. The hotel itself though: extremely average: clean enough, very noisy (our room was facing the main street), noisy and... More

We arrived to the hotel in the late morning (10 a.m.). The staff was helpful and polite and we got our room on the 9th floor. The location is very good, it's about 5 minutes of walking to the famous Copacabana and about the same time to Ipanema. I know that as long as it's a hotel in very busy... More

I just returned back from a trip to Rio for work, but I also wanted to take advantage of what the city has to offer. I had originally booked a place to stay in Santa Theresa for the views and convenience to work, but am so thankful I switched locations! I was a bit concerned about booking this hotel after... More

Overall this hotel offers a good price / quality relation. Unfortunately the cleanliness suffers a bit from the high turnover: we found some small insects in our bed upon arrival but got new sheets within fifteen minutes after complaining. The hotel is in a convenient position at the southern end of Copacabana not far from Ipanema. Breakfast was good. The... More

This is an older hotel showing signs of age, but very clean and staff friendly, food good. Fabulous location, 2-1/2 blocks from Copacabana beach one way and a little bit more to Ipanema the other way. Lots of choice of restaurants and bars, various shops and markets close by, including Hippi Market at Ipanema on Sundays which is hignly recommended.... More
