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 most memorable feature of this hotel was its rooftop terrace/pool for panoramic views of... More

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 so thoroughly happy with the service, comfort, beauty, cleanliness of the Arena Copacabana Hotel, that we will not consider any other hotel for future stays. The staff was super attentive at all times. Good and easy WIFI, intelligent TV so we were able to connect to our laptop (bring cables) for good TV viewing. But this is not... 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.

Had a great family stay here right on Copacabana Beach, what more could you want. Brilliant views, lovely rooms and very quiet considering the activity outside. Staff have been very friendly and accomodating, food is excellant and reasonably priced. Pool and gym are small but do the trick. Would stay again without hesitation.

As my first time traveling internationally, I highly recommend this hotel. Great breakfast, the staff is fluent in English, clean facilities and a beautiful view of the beach. The front desk receptionist Alina was very helpful and gave excellent suggestions on what to see locally. Will definitely stay here when I return to Rio. Highly recommend.

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.
