The Best Western Plus Copacabana Design Hotel is located among the most famous beaches in the world: Ipanema, Copacabana and Arpoador.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

Funky modern hotel in a great location, the rooms are stylish (small) but totally functional, with nice little touches like the inspirational quote written on the ceiling. Service was generally good. The breakfast was impressive and the breakfast room is very nice. I really

From the time of arrival the experience has been far from acceptable. I am booked in for over a week and everyday is a new problem. The reason for this review is the lack of hygiene and professionalism of staff. The establishment doesn't clean the rooms, throw bedding on the

This hotel was just what we needed. It was very conveniently located in Copacabana, close to the beach and the metro. The rooms are small but clean. The price is very affordable and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast was ok, not great but not bad.

The cruise port is easily accessible by public transportation: the subway station is right infront of the hotel. Take the subway to Cinelândia station, get off and take the Light Rail Transit (VLT in Portuguese) to the cruise port (the VLT station is right outside Cinelândia subway station). And the cruise port is right on the VLT line at Praça Mauá. Make sure you take the VLT in the right direction (if you take it in the wrong direction don´t worry, the last station - the local, not international, airport is only two stations away from Cinelândia). With respect to the aiport, there are buses that will take you from Galeão, the international airport, to Copacabana. The hotel is quite far from Galeão.
