Simple ans small hotel with really good rooms. All with balcony. The breakfast is ok and complete. The positive: The attention from the staff. They are always (always!!!) smiling and prompt to help. The location could not be better.... Also the prices are really ok for copacapana. It is my choice here!

I stayed at Apa Hotel during my 3 cities Brazil tour. They have great customer service. The hotel is close to Copacabana Beach and it is really accessible to buses and train. However, the elevator was tiny, the room had a smell and water not working for over half an hour after my arrival. They purposely make sure that only... More

My friend and I found Apa after booking budget accommodations at a hostel called Copinha, which was so awful (and i've stayed in some bad places) that we had to leave. Apa was such a nice change. Clean, big rooms with balconies. Very helpful staff, especially Joaquim (spelling? sorry!) who was just as nice and helpful and accommodating as you... More

The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful with organizing tours. It within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The rooms were small but clean. It isn't a modern hotel but it is in a great location and that was good. Instagram: @tommiesox

Is a small hotel, the room was comfortable, is two blocks from copacabana beach, it has AC, cable TV and freebreakfast. Location is very goog, they speak spanish which in my case was of great help. And Is close from some bus stops where you can take a bus to go to the corcovado or pao do acucar.

Hotel Apa is basic with small rooms, but provides a good price for the location. Friendly staff and clean. Breakfast is the usual Brazilian hotel fare of breads, ham, cheese, fruit, coffee and juice. Consistent and adequate. Plenty of inexpensive eateries in the area.

Hotels are expensive in Rio, especially in Copacabana area. You have to search hard for bargains even in low seasons. This 3 stars hotels are well positioned in Rua Republica do Peru,less than 5 minutes walk to metro stations, the Copa Beach, and the bus stop to Urca and Ipanema are just outside the hotel. The airport buses ( from... More

Friendly and helpful stuff, always at least one person that could speak English. Reasonably spaced room with fridge, AC, personal safe, some rooms have balcony. Fast wifi. Modern N type outlets 127V, one of them 220V (air conditioning). The location looks safe but still be careful at nights! A bit monotonous breakfasts. The road at one side of the hotel... More

A good place to stay if you are looking for the beach of Copa Cabana and a place to sleep at night. Pros: This hotel was clean and conveniently located. The rooms were very basic but fine. The staff were friendly and helpful. A light breakfast was included. Cons: Just a basic hotel with no amenities.

Apa was one of the cheaper hotels we looked at in Rio De Janeiro. The rooms are basic, but we still had a stocked mini bar and it was clean. It is 2 blocks from Copacabana Beach and there is lots of shopping close by. It is also easy access by bus to virtually everywhere in Rio. The staff are... More
