“Exceptional Hotel on Copacabana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Location is everything, which is why the Orla Copacabana Hotel is a great choice when deciding on where to stay in Rio. Situated beach front only a walk away from the beautiful waters of Copacabana, the Orla is a great place to start when experiencing Rio. You can literally start there and see where the day takes you!

For the location, room (get a beach view -- it is worth the extra), service (breakfast and wifi included), location (duh) and helpful staff, one would think it would be more expensive, but to travelers on a budget and still want to experience a real vacation, I'd recommend this place any day! Loved this hotel and I would stay here again.

Also, plenty of restaurants, shopping, music, transportation, caipirinhas (most important) surrounding the area. Amazing location!

Room Tip: Beach view all the way.

Loved this hotel and the service. Breakfast was delicious. It was straight across from the beach but the road in front of the hotel can be quite busy and noisy. Great Location, super clean room. Loved it!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the ocean view!

The loaction is excellent, really across the street from the beach, safe, and perfect to walk around. The service was nice but slow, as it is usually the case in Brasil, and the rooms were ok but not impressive. The pool on the roof top has great views, and the breakfast was nice. The price was acceptable and overall we were fine with the hotel.

If you want to stay on the beach this will certainly fit the bill. Good sized rooms, clean, and friendly but weirdly indifferent staff. Sorta like what you get in Nordic countries: not unpleasant, just not engaging. Cultural perhaps. Breakfast is plentiful and wifi was amazingly fast. One strange but nice occurrence: I had a room with two single beds. Someone put 2+2 together and made it one king sized bed. Coming back to the room after this was done had perplexed me some, but it was a nice touch. That, and they changed the shower head to one of those drenching types. When jet lagged these little changes can throw you off, but they were appreciated.

One minus is the immediate neighborhood. Not much in the way of good restaurants about; tourist traps galore. If you're looking for a nice spot you might have to cab it.

My Boyfriend n I stayed here from August 1st to August 5th. The room was very small but clean which is ALWAYS MOST IMPORTANT 2 Us. The back view of the hotel was poor conditions and NOT A PRETTY SITE @ ALL; but who goes on vacation to stare out the window....NOT I/US!!! The front desk staff was VERY HELPFUL with tour information, restaurants and anything/everything we asked or needed. Even though we don't speak any Spanish or Portuguese the did EXCELLENT with communicating with us and making us feel welcome in their country and establishment which we GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! The complimentary breakfast was fresh and good daily also very fulfilling to start your day. The section of the beach across the street was full of excitement and mixed with tourists and locals that made it GR8 fun in the sun beach days everyday. Overall I would DEFINITELY STAY and RECOMMEND The ORLA HOTEL to friends and family!!!

but...the room, wasn´t what we spected for the price we paid. the best, having Posto 6 right across the street, best beach caipirinhas in Rio. the breakfast was poor, no natural juices, dark location, no windows. there´s a gym and spa in the terrace, but looked quite abandoned.

The position of this hotel is absolutely strategic as it allows you to enjoy the Copacabana beach and Arpoador. The hotel in general is a bit old, although some effort seems to have been done to renovate the reception. Our room was a "standard" one and it was very cozy, i must say there were some small insects in the room which were "attacking" whatever we left on the desk or in the bathroom basin. Nothing unbearable anyway, but some more accurate cleaning would let it disappear.
Price for this hotel is very good if compared with other hotels in the same area, so i would anyway recommend this one, possibly choosing a better/bigger room with sea view.
It also offers a magnificent rooftop view over Copacabana and Leme beaches
