Best location on Copacabana, and you can definitely walk to Forte de Copacabana for a sunset or Ipanema Beach from here. Right across from the water with guys renting umbrellas and chairs for 5 Reals each. Location... can't be beat! Honestly, the hotel itself is run down, and they don't seem interested in making it look better. Walls in lobby... More

Debret has a good point, it is located in Copacabana in a wonderful place, walking distant to Ipanema. The hotel is old so you will realize that the reception, elevators and restaurant are decadent. Otherwise, the quality of the rooms is good and the breakfast is very good. If you are planning to stay in Rio to enjoy night life... More

Stayed here with my wife for three nights over New Year. Didn't book the hotel until late November and not a lot of choice of hotels in Rio. However, we were very glad we booked. Not cheap, but very good value considering it's such a busy period has a fantastic location on Copacabana beach. We were given a refurbished room,... More

I stayed in this hotel for almost 2 weeks, the room was ok, and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel might be in need of a slight facelift, but the location at Avenida Atlantica is good, you just have to cross the road to get to Copacabana beach, and the view from the breakfast room is superb. I had... More

I stayed in this hotel way back in 2003. It is an old, un-spectacular hotel but, considering it's position on Av. Atlantica on Copacabana beach, it is good value. Rooms are nothing special but spacious. The breakfast on the top floor is a highlight.

Been here sometime ago, location is excellent as it is right by the Copacabana beach. Rooms are spacious however a bit old and run down. The rooftop restaurant is good for breakfast and panoramic views. All in all, they have good potential but they need to pay more attention to customer service and comfort otherwise they won't survive.

Hotel Debret is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The only positive is the location on copacabana beach. It was a total rip off because of the World Cup. While the room was clean and tidy, the beds and pillows were uncomfortable and the service was very poor. I would not recommend this hotel under any circumstances.

There is no possible way this is a three star hotel. Run down premises, old beds, with mold in the showers, worn down towels. There is no feasible way that this hotel can be a three star hotel. I feel ripped off. Say there is wifi... lie.. at most a 128 kbps for the whole hotel (when available).
