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.

Good hotel in a good location for tourists. Nice spacious rooms with a fairly large showers, and bar fridge, A/C and TV. Breakfast is included and its fairly good and substantial. 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

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with my friend – here is a summary of our experience. Good: Location – 2 minute walk to the beach and bus stops; 5 minute walk to metro. 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

stayed in this hotel during Carnaval and the location is great. 2 blocks from the beach and lot of shopping around and restaurants. Maybe 3 blocks from the metro station. But Gosh it's expensive for what it is. Next time, I'll rent an apartment for 1/3 what I paid in this hotel.

we stayed for Rio Carnaval 2015. Choice of hotel is a lot more limited for the period. We booked this hotel mainly because of this being close to the Carnaval ticket pick up point and also the area being having good services around it. The room was clean and of good size. Wifi is free only in the lobby thought.... More

We had to make a quick decision and this was the best hotel choice came up at that moment. The location is great, about 2 blocks from Copacabana beach. The area is surrounded buy little shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is an average hotel, nothing really fancy about the rooms, just plain, no decor or anything special. The bathroom... More

We stayed here for New Years and the hotel is average. I guess they jack all the prices up around this time because it was definitely not worth the astronomical price we paid. The breakfast was very average, wifi came at a charge and there was no atmosphere in the bar or pool top at all (being New Years aswell).... More

You can order a pot of tea and sit around the pool to enjoy it even if you are not staying there! Lovely hotel with an understated elegance. The staff is so friendly and professional. The hotel is centrally located near public transport and the beach (of course).
