I stayed in the Mar Palace in March/April for several days. The hotel was chosen predominantly for it's location a stone's throw from the beach. The room was spacious and relatively clean, with a large bathroom with walk in shower. The lift is incredibly slow and I often ended up giving up and walking down the stairs. The breakfast is...

The whole hotel price structure scenario in Rio is artificially high, consequently finding a good location is not hard, if you are prepared to pay. The Mar Palace as others have described, is in a very good location and it offers everything from beach, transport, restaurants, shops and bars. The rooms were clean and quite spacious. The bathroom was large... More

Convenient location, 2 blocks from Copacabana, on a busy street with many shops,stores, restaurants. The room was big, clean and reasonably quiet. The breakfast was good. On the negative side: the hotel immediately faces a park, with homeless people sleeping in and around it. The staff was terrible at the front desk, especially the afternoon men. None seemed too happy... More

Centrally located and a great bang for your buck, we checked into this place during Carnaval and were so happy we did. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Nevena at the front desk, this multilingual angel was INCREDIBLE (GM I SAY A RAISE/BONUS IS IN ORDER FOR HER). She gave us a room on the highest floor...

Staying here and the front desk people are very unhelpful. We wanted to book a Samba show and they just gave us the brochure and told us to do it ourselves. We also needed some help with our airplane flight and they just pointed us to the internet. Not pleased

Stayed in this hotel in December 2013. The location is really excellent. Only 1 block to Copacobana beach, and a 3 minute walk to the subway. The rooms are reasonable - they're a little bit outdated but are very comfortable nontheless. The staff have been absolutely fantastic. They helped with tours, directions, and were very friendly and helpful at all... More

I'm a local but sometimes have to move in to a hotel for business reasons - The Mar Palace seems to be the very best value for money on the EXTRMELY EXPENSIVE Zona Sul - the South part of Rio. It is just a few bucks more than an Ibis (considering you know the French low budget chain) with lots... More

The location is great you are literally 2 streets (2min walk) from copacabana beach and around the hotel there are lots of bus stops and shops. Breakfast was also great with varied fruits bread juices. The rooms were good. Worth going up to the... More

If you want to enjoy the beach, this is the hotel because of its location, less than one minute from Copacabana white sands. It is definitely not at the level of a 4 star hotel however staff are excellent and helpful especially Anna and Nevena who always have good tips for a city tour. Rooms need upgrade. Breakfast is generous... More
