Mini bar was always well stocked and we got a beautiful beach view. Staff were always friendly and polite with excellent service, and they make a mean...

The location on Copacabana Beach provides an ideal location in a very touristy area of Rio. The service throughout the hotel is 5-star. We stayed in a Club Junior suite that was positioned on a high-floor with a great view of the beach. The private check-in and butler service was a nice touch. The rooms however are dated and the...

Given a room overlooking the Copacabana Beach. Can't beat that! Very helpful personnel. The bedtime chocolates are to die for! Food not great and expensive. Locale is handy for shopping in the area although stores are just little shops.

My wife and I have traveled the world, and stayed in some of the best hotels while abroad. I was so impressed with the people who work for this hotel.

Stayed here before and during carnival. Fantastic service and breakfast. The bed was super comfortable and the room well appointed. The pool area on the roof could do with a renovation. It did not feel 5 star at all. At 8am on a Saturday morning I heard a gun fight in the supposedly safe "pavella" in Leme behind the hotel....

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.
