Excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, very good breakfast. One block from the famous copacabana beach... Rio de Janeiro is never a cheap place to be, So this is for sure a good deal when it comes to cost effectiveness

Is not noisy after you shut the door of your room, the room is big, the toilet is ok, the shower is excellent, breakfast is ok, and the location is excellent. In Rio by the way, everything is quite near and is easy to get anywhere by bus or metro system.

You can read many reviews on hotels and you really need to make your mind up after reading a few but we stayed May 6th until 13th and had... More

The Mar Palace was clean, and conveniently located a couple of blocks from the Copacabana beach. We had no issues checking in around noon. It had a nice breakfast buffet, with scambled eggs, meats, cheese, fruits and lots of breads. Front Desk staff spoke english and were very helpful. We had a large room with 3 twin beds. Our view...

This hotel offered 3 twin size beds for some rooms which I've never seen before - not sure if it's common in Brazil but it is not in the US. This worked out perfect since I was travelling with 4 other people. We had one room with a double bed and a twin size bed. The other room had the... More

Excellent location. Nice pool area, good rooms but try and get one with a beach front view. Buffet breakfasts are excellent as are the lunches that you can order by the pool. They have two other specialty restaurants that lasso look very nice.

Plenty of restaurants, juice bars, corner stores and pharmacies in the area. WiFi was free in the lobby but was extra to get in your room (a little strange).... More

During reservation, we requested a room with a view on a higher floor (we knew the view could not be great since it is not... More

We spent 4 nights at the Mar Palace Copacabana. As the headline says the location was great - near the Beach - but away from Atlantic avenue. But location is its primary advantage. The rooms are clean but could need an upgrade. The breakfast - well it is plentifull but the scrambled eggs tasted like fish and in general we... More
