We stayed at the Orla Copacabana Hotel for 3 days in early January, 2013. It truly is wedged between two other hotels. It faces Copacabana beach and has a wonderful view from the rooftop pool. The staff was terrific and very helpful and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had. I'd read reviews of how crowded the buffet can get, with long waiting times, but we never experienced that. It's a small room but we were always able to be seated immediately. We arrived early in the morning, long before the 1 PM check-in, but our bags were accommodated and we were given our room by 9:30 AM. Our room was an inside one, #906, with only a view of buildings, and small and basic. But, it was clean and included a comfortable queen bed, desk with chair, AC, refrigerator, TV, 2 bedside tables with lamps, small closet with hangers, a good toilet (essential!) and a shower with lots of hot water. The only drawback was that one elevator was broken most of the time so we had to wait for quite awhile for the elevator; we often took the stairs. The restaurant serves all day long; we ate dinner there once on a rainy night. It was good, but overpriced, and not worth it for dinner when there are so many restaurants in Rio. There's a supermarket on the street behind the hotel where you can pick up any food, snacks and bottled water. Ipanema beach is a short walk away. All in all, a good choice. Don't miss Casa de Feijoida for an authentic feijoida meal. Pricey, but worth it and within walking distance of Orla.
