I absolutely love the Arena Copacabana! Marcio on reception was very welcoming and accommodating with all my queries. I think I was ripped me off on a football tour I booked as everyone on my bus tour from other hotels paid 40 reals less but all other tours I booked were the going rate. I highly recommend the jeep favela,...

I stayed at the Arena Copacabana Hotel at Rio de Janeiro's most fanous beach for a conference, with some days before and after. The hotel was overall a really good place to stay: very centrally located, convenient for the conference (we could walk there in 20 minutes), new and not too small rooms, decent breakfast. The only disappointment was the...

We stayed at the Arena for 5 days and had a great time. The hotel is chic and simple, our room had an amazing view from the 11th floor and was very nice (except for the beds which are not good). The style of the room is basic and simple but for that price, that location and that view, it...

I stayed on my last night during carnival. I was fortunate to get a two night stay at a reasonable rate during carnival. I moved down from the Marriott. I was really impressed. When I return, I will try this hotel over the Marriott, though I was please with my stay at the Marriott. The hotel has a modern hip...

This hotel is well located in the middle of Copacabana. Excellent view from swimming pool penthouse terrace. Unfortunately the front office staff (most of them) is terrible. Although my stay was prepaid the man tried to let me pay a 2nd time at check-out. Only when I started to complain about this error he apologized, but very artificial. When I...

I just spend two nights in this new hotel. Everything looks nice and clean. Rooms are good and service of the staff is perfect. Best part of this hotel is crossing the street and enjoy the beach! This is a new comfortabel 4 star hotel on a great location!

It's a tough proposition booking a respectable hotel at a reasonable price in Rio de Janeiro right now. If, like me, you're willing to forgo any sort of view from your room, then opt for an interior-view room at the Arena Copacabana Hotel (ocean view rooms are more expensive). The outlook is seriously bleak but the room is still fantastic!...

I found the hotel on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint. Aldo at Reception was immensely informative and by far the best employee at the hotel!

My wife and I were going to Rio for 5 nights in October and we hoped to spend at least one night on the Copacabana beachfront, preferably in an ocean view room. After some research on Trip Advisor it looked as though we would have to give up on that idea because we couldn’t find a hotel that had a...

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.
