I'm going to start with the location, it's great. The hotel is located across the street from Copacabana beach, which is fantastic. I haven't stayed in many hotels in Brazil, therefore I'm not sure what the standard is, but I don't believe, I would go back to this hotel. Except the location and affordability, there is nothing to brag about.... More

This hotel is really grungy. There are nasty, smelly rugs in the hallway and mold on the ceilings. The free WiFi is non-existent and customer service was mediocre at best. The continental breakfast was the best part and that wasn't even good. I like my eggs in many different ways but not green like Hotel Debret style. I will never... More

Really the location is good. but the hotel is honestly bad> bad condition, bad service and wifi very very slow or not wifi. The hotel is old but really is not in conditions. The prices is similar other best hotels. Good view, good location. Bad service, bad conditions and not good service. My friends never will be return.

The hotel Debret is located on a super spot at the Copacabana. And the service at check-in is super friendly and good. But.........please allow guests, if really needed, acces to their hotel room a bit before 14.00 hours, because if you leave guests waiting in the lobby or outside, this is not a good thing. So more flexible. Please re-decorate... More

The hotel was very good, but the AC left something to be desired. Also the elevator was slow and small. I would go back close access to the beach and places to eat. The staff were great and accommodating.

Sure, the location is terrific (if you're into Copacabana that is), but I believe they are in desperate need for restoration. I actually saw some work being done, but I was not so lucky to get me a nice room. Staff was friendly, breakfast was ok, and one could argue "in Copacabana, thy shall not spend time in your hotel...

Before you take stock in other negative reviews ask yourself - Is this hotel far more affordable than other beachfront hotels in Copacabana? Positives- the rooms are freshly painted, clean, air conditioned, great water pressure, LOCATION! Also very helpful and kind English speaking staff. I was not at all surprised for the price I paid that the breakfast was terrible... More

This hotel is located in a nice area with fantastic view of the beach: great location. However, it needs a SERIOUS remodeling/updating. The lobby looks like a motel you'd expect to find in the most depressing town on earth. It's a bit smelly and poorly decorated. The rooms (we were in two) are crappy and low quality. The upgrade we... More

Debret has a good point, its located in copacabana, AWESOME PLACE. I would not recommend for couples on a romantic vacation or for families. Hotel is good for bed/breakfast only. For the price, I would stay there again... for more money, I'd go somewhere else! Make sure you roll out of bed ten minutes prior to a sunrise on the... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
