This has to be one of the best places I have ever stayed. From the stunning views, wonderfully polite but engaging staff, and clean comfortable rooms - this has to be right up there amongst the best. We enjoyed a fabulous stay as part of our three week trip to South America, and this was one of the best places.... More

We were recently stranded due to the volcanic dust problem and the Sofitel, where we were staying, couldn't accomodate us, so we moved to the Arena Hotel, which was by far superior. The rates were very reasonable, the bedrooms spotlessly clean and the view over the Copacobana Beach was beautiful. However, it is the staff that make the Arena such... More

Ian & Anita UK 5th May 2010 This was our second visit in one week to the Arena Copacabana. Everything was as good as if not better than the first. The location is amazing, directly across the street from the fabulous beach. The warmth and general friendliness of the hotel staff here is exceptional and in particular mention should be... More

We ended up paying more than we'd planned for the second Rio section of our trip to various spots in Brazil - this was the last 4 nights. However, it was worth every penny at the Arena Copacabana & we were glad we'd splashed out a bit. From the start, it was a total pleasure: everyone at reception was delightful... More

We stayed at the Arena and it is in a great position. The Pool is very Small, but has great views. Just be careful when walking around, my husband had his gold necklace snatched off his neck as we walked along the Promenade. Apart from that, we really enjoyed Rio.

Breakfast is great, with vaste choice of tropical fruits . Great view from rooftop pool, small but nice. Waiters, bartenders and lobby boys VERY GENTLE, front desk and chef... More

This hotel is pretty at first glance but REALLY fell short of the mark. HOTEL RESTAURANT: Food was not good and overpriced. COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST: Good: Milk, coffee, tea, fruit drinks, bread, cold cuts and large selection of fruits HOTEL STAFF: The most pleasant people you will encounter will be the bell boys. The rest, including the hotel reception staff and... More

I have a soft spot in my heart for this hotel. No, it is not the "Grand Dame" of Copacabana hotels, but it offers a fantastic beachfront location for a very reasonable price. The staff is very nice, the breakfast buffet is quite good and it is served in a second floor restaurant overlooking Copacabana Beach. The room furnishings are... More

Yeah it is right on Copacabana Beach but it is extremely run down, furniture and beds in the rooms are terrible. It is overpriced for what it is. The beach is not that nice anyway (then again I am a spoilt Australian used to much better beaches) and the nearby area dangerous at night - I would recommend staying further... 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.
