We enjoyed the location of the hotel and friendly staff , easy access to Copacabana and Ipanema , with all restaurants in nice walking distance. Hotel will go through renovation after the Carnaval, because currently one could consider it is a vintage hotel.

We can access both Ipanema beach, Copacabana beach. 4km walks takes us to edge of the beach, means this hotel is center of both Ipanema and Copacabana. If you stay here you can enjoy morning walking or running. However I recomend not to bring something out of office when you walk. It is to say someone is robbed phones.

The hotel is at the beach. Cross the street and you are there. Lots of food around the area too. Rooms are a little compact and god knows what is wrong with the showers.

I have now stayed at this hotel several times over the past couple of years with mixed results previously.

Great hotel and great location right between Copacabana and Ipenema. The room had a great view, the staff were friendly. Breakfast outside on the terrace was wonderful. The Horse's Neck bar is the perfect sun downer location.

Located on Copacabana beach you can hear the roar of the ocean from your spacious room. Rooms very clean and has all top amenities. Favorite part was Atlantis restaurant with large terrace by pool for dining overlooking beachfront. Cannot say enough on how pleased I was with staff at Atlantis. Hotel is very beautiful with everything you could ask for.

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.
