We enjoyed our 6 days here very much and found the hotel very clean and the service attentive. The food/breakfast service was excellent and the selection had something for everybody. Free wifi in lobby and top deck was a nice plus. The staff was responsive to all of our needs and helpful in many ways. The pool/top deck offers a great vantage point to take in all the views of the beach with a bar right there to reax worry free. Highly recommended for those seeking great accommodations on Copacobana Beach at semi-reasonable prices.

The staff was very helpful and the hotel is very beautifully decorated. We booked a regular room and they upgraded us to an ocean view front on a high floor since the occupancy was not full. They made the experience in Rio and on the Copacabana beach excellent. The view from their pool deck on the roof is beautiful!! Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer statue visible from each direction!!

Great view of the beach, Great area. Breakfast has a wide variety of food. I did a lot of research of the hotels in the Area and this hotel appeared to have the best reviews for the best value for money, and we were happy with everything in the hotel. The staff spoke English.

This was the first time I have stayed at the Arena having found another hotel that I tend to use for convenience. I have to say I was very impressed and will definitely stay in the future. Breakfast was much better than most of the Copacobana hotels I have stayed in previously. Room was clean and spacious and had everything you would expect in it. There was a small pool on the rooftop next to the bar and the views over the beach, across to the Corcovada and the Sugar Loaf are stunning. Staff were friendly and helpful
