Nice Hotel with very friendly & helpfull staff. In front of the Copacabana beach, just to cross the road. Spacious & clean rooms (Airconditioned) and very good breakfast. Small swimming pool, but nice rooftop view. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants.

The hotel is very modern and well located (right on Copacabana beach). The room is spacious and clean. The hotel was offering some nice hawaiana to wear during your stay. Nice terrace with swimming pool on the upper floor. Nice breakfast. I have zero complaints.

Location couldn't be any better right in the heart of Copacabana, and the food and Caipirinhas were to die for. The wifi was excellent the pool at the top was small but doable. Only negative was the sauna was being used as storages 😡😡,

Pros - Loved the hotel location, huge breakfast buffet spread (free), nice rooms with a front view of Copacabana beach, somewhat friendly Engish speaking staff. I also liked their commitment to energy savings - key card to turn on/off power. Cons - Tiny swimming pool and sauna room was turned into a storage area.

Arena is located right on the main Copacabana strip, making it easily accessible to the beach, various dining options and nearby neighborhood attractions. Though the bedroom decor was minimalist and a bit dated, our room itself was clean and spacious. The buffet breakfast was good.

The location of this hotel is perfect - right smack in the middle of Copacabana. You can have some lovely drinks and a nice lunch at the very top of the hotel, overlooking the beach. The rooms themselves were large, with comfortable beds and good amenities. WiFi worked well. Breakfast was one of the better ones I've had - lots... More

We were here for one week in July. Rooms are good. Bed is a bit hard and it seems that the AC only has one setting. Cold! This is a bit cold at night since they only have bed sheets, no duve. So I woke up freezing a few times. Breakfast is very nice and has great variety.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
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.
