Excellent hotel in the heart of the Copacabana. The staff are very helpful, the hotel is clean, offers an excellent breakfast (and other meals if required). Convenient location two streets back from Copacabana beach.

If you want to walk to the beach which you should it is 3 mins walk only. Good breakfast, the pool is too small to swim, elevators are a bit small as well. Rooms are comfortable, staff speaks English and they are smiley. We went there for our honeymoon. Definitely consider.

Booked this hotel with a friend as I was in Copacabana for carnaval. I booked a deluxe quadruple room because I had several people meeting me in rio and figured... More

Stayed over a week. Good location couple of blocks from the beach, 3 blocks to Metro. Good included breakfast. WIFI OK, a little slow in busy hours. Rooms, large, clean, but just a little dated. Price per night, good. Would stay again. Great restaurants along Copa beach road. Go to LAPA area weekends for music.

Dear Mr Oscar Alberto, Certainly there was some misunderstanding in your first call to our reception desk because everything that is founded at the rooms are sent directly to our house keeping and in any circunstances to our front desk. Even we did not found your short, we are willing to pay you a new one and wondering that you... More

Room was very large, clean, basic with fabulous shower- got changed into our swimming gear and headed... 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.
