“Prime location on Copacabana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

This hotel has off course one really big bonus and that is location! on the copacana! and you can walk to Ipanema! Hotel is showing some age. Pool and Gym are very small. The view from the porch is gorgeous (best place to make a Copacana picture!). The price is decent compared to the other hotels on Copacabana! (you pay for that). There are a few restaurants nearby (churrascuria with meals around 30 real) nearby and a 24 hour bakery/restaurant on the next block! Staff speaks well English and can also help with tours. Breakfast was decent. The room was a bit outdated but clean. There were no irons in the rooms and you cannot loan one from the hotel... they will only iron for your for some reals.. thats a neg! if you dont want to spend too much but be on the Copacabana than this is your place!

Very good location, walking distance to Ipanema beach, nice terrace on top to enjoy the beautiful view of Copacabana beach. Very helpful with tours and recommendations to restaurants. We stayed for 2 nights and had a very good time with no complaints.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a beach view

Positive side, the location in front of the copacabana beach, great place to enjoy the rio janeiro vibe.., to walk.. in the summer...

regular, negative side, in general the staff it is not very friendly, they are not very helpful, the rooms are ok (do not expect a modern hote), the breakfast area is small, they do not have many options


there are other (value / price) hotels nearby instead of this one, just reserve with 2 or 3 months ahead...

Room Tip: Do not reserve a street view room, you are in copacabana, the difference is not large...

I stayed in the Orla for one night and had a room on the 6th floor overlooking the beach.
The size of the room and bathroom was more than adequate, maybe smaller than the average American hotel room, but larger than what you get in Paris and London.
The room and bathroom seemed recently renovated.
Breakfast was great.

The only reason why I do not give 5 stars is the noise level that comes through the windows. Single glazing is not sufficient to keep out the noise, which seems to go on all night.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better due to the noise, but definitely facing the beach and sugar loaf mo...

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.
