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.

room is very comfortable,you can adjust the air conditioned temperature,which you cannot do at the New York Hilton Downtown ,for example.Staff is friendly and attentive,breakfast is very good and varied. But the biggest attraction is the terrace sporting the magnificent view of Copacabana beach.

The room was clean and orderly with a room safe and a partial view of Copacabana Beach as well as Christ the Redeemer statue. After arriving about 8am, the hotel was able to get us in our room right away and held our baggage the day we left so we could enjoy our last full day before returning to the... More

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.
