Excellent location only 2 blocks away to Copacabana Beach. Very nice and helpfull staff. I asked for a recommendation to a nice restaurant and not only they recommend us one but they even took the time to take us there. Amazing service. They always gave us good tips for local transportation to move around the area and to visit Rio's... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location in Cococabana, 3 blocks from the beach. The hotel is far from luxurious, but it's clean, with towels changed daily, with a fridge, TV and safe in each room. The breakfast is okay- tea, coffee, juice, 4 types of fresh fruit, drinkable yogurt, scrambled eggs, frostiness cereal, fresh rolls with a... More

When you know the pricelevel for RIO the Apa hotel is a good choice if you need basic accomodation..Located smack in the centre of Copocabana you have all you need just around the corner within walking distance. Rooms are not newly decorated, its not posh and you probably do not meet the stars here- but for the price you pay... More

The Apa Hotel was very clean, which is the most important to me. We stayed there because we needed 3 beds and that is hard to find. Very basic hotel. the staff was good. Breakfast was ok. It is two blocks off Copacabana but not a bad location for the price and the 3 beds we needed.

It's in a good location. Bathroom needs renovation, also they only have two small thin towels in the room. Breakfast is really good. Price is little high (it's expensive area anyway). Wi-if in the room was very slow and unreliable.

Its a very decent and not expensive place to stay. Copacabana beach is a few blocks away from hotel. We checked in on a rainy day and took a walk upto beach. Clean and spacious rooms. Better to know little Portuguese. Nice breakfast. Very helpful staff. Hotel is located in a very safe locality.

With Rio’s majority hotels charging exorbitant rates, APA Hotel is one of the very few with somewhat reasonable rate. Hotel is only two blocks from Copacabana Beach, but sits at the corner of busy downtown streets. My 2nd floor room facing the intersection comes with a cute small balcony. Room is nice, spacious and clean with a dated appearance, but... More

My son and I were on a visit to Rio when we decided to stay for a few extra days. As it was a very busy time, we had some problems finding suitable lodging but was fortunate to luck upon this hotel. The hotel is located near a main street a few blocks away from Copacabana beach. Our room was... More

A small hotel close to Copacabana and the parallel shopping streets. The staff in the reception was very friendly and spoke good English. The room was a bit small but had all the basics, it had a cute little balcony with a view of the street. Easy excess to all the main attraction by bus or metro and a short... More

Hotel is close to Copacabana beach. It's clean and breakfast is also very good. During night it's little bit loud. Just be aware of bill-boy who will offer you to call you taxi on your way back to airport. Strictly refuse it! In our case, he called us overpriced taxi for which he's getting money.
