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.

Booked one of the suites that must have been partially renovated. Bathroom was awful and cannot stand these window AC units. The suite on the highest floor had an ant attack. All over the work desk. Disgusting. The bathroom is like from the 1970's with a matching shower head.

Awful hotel. They advertise photos of renovated rooms on their website, but the room we got was extremely old and dirty. We asked to be moved to one of the renovated rooms, and the receptionist (who spoke very little english) told us we could move in a few days. Once we asked to
