“Good option in Copacabana but don't expect high quality hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We choose this hotel after looking for a while for a good deal in Copacabana (between hostel and hotel). We stayed only one night
This hotel is clearly very well located in Copacabana.
Room was big and quiet (ask for it). Cleanness was very average; you could expect more from a hotel
The breakfast was huge but not really a high value
Service was ok but not a plus.
We would say, if you want to stay in Copacabana, in a safe area, this is a good choice for a good price but don't expect to have classic hotel standards.

Great location - block to Copacabana beach, easy walk to Ipanema beach, shopping, restaurants and the Lagoa. Great complimentary breakfast. Good air conditioning. Refrigerator and safe in room. Wifi is pretty spotty and slow, but they do have computers in the lobby if you need internet. Rooms are just OK - beds are decent, rooms are a bit sterile and outdated but comfortable enough. Concierge that will help hail taxis.

Room Tip: Ask for street view, otherwise your view is the grungy apartment building behind.

The location of this hotel, it's not exactly beachfront but it's only a block away from all the happenings at Copacabana beach. There's a supermarket a few minutes' walk away. The room was basic and of a good size. But the building needs repair. Old rooms and bathrooms. If you want to save money is ok so again we wondered why LAS Argentinie didn't book us a nice, comfortable 5* hotel for the last nights!

The hotel rooms are average in quality, with nice style. The TV didn't really work, and the free WiFi was spotty but that's a minor complaint. The only real complaint about the room is the showers a very tight.

The breakfast offered a lot of options and was very good quality. The hotel staff was very friendly, attentive and courteous too, so that obviously helps make it a good experience.

However the real reason this hotel is great is the price vs location. We were finding hotels in Centro with a similar price, and this is literally a block from Copacabana and about a ten minute walk from Ipanema. The neighborhood and beaches are absolutely beautiful. I'd highly recommend this hotel.

I like the location of this hotel, it's not exactly beachfront but it's only a block away from all the happenings at Copacabana beach. There's a supermarket a few minutes' walk away which was really helpful and the bus stop from which we took a public bus to see Christ the Redeemer was also conveniently nearby. After an unfortunate stay at a b&b, the staff and porters here made us feel safe and like valued guests. They spoke good English and were helpful with directions and booking of taxis. The reception area looked modern and nice. My favorite has to be the generous breakfast spread, especially the array of fresh fruits. The rooms were good, everything was working well including the wifi, though would be nicer if revamped to look less tired. Wouldn't say no to staying here again.

The hotel is quite small,rooms are average and furniture is old, air conditioning is noisy and has to be shut down to sleep. The good point is the location, second line in Copacabana, not beach views from the room but to get there is just one minute walk. Breakfast is quite nice.

I stayed at The Copa Sul for 2 nights in a room on the 7th floor. I encountered little noise.

The room was of a good size. Comfortable bed, safe, mini bar, TV, desk, plenty of wardrobe space with hangers, bedside table with lights.

The bathroom again was a good size. Shower,sink,toilet all worked perfectly. Plenty of hot water and clean towels. Selection of toiletries.

I thought the buffet breakfast was very good. Bit slow on getting clean cups and plates, but the hotel was full.

There are 2 computers in the lobby for guest use.

I found the reception staff helpful and informative. I checked in and they arranged a city tour for me that afternoon within 20 minutes. They also answered all my questions without a problem.

The hotel is 2 blocks away from The Copacabana and close to Ipenema. There are many restaurants, bars and shops in the area. It is an ideal base to explore the city with the metro station only 5 minutes away.

The hotel is modern and clean and provides a more than suitable place to stay in Rio.
