HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

To get a real taste of the Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro lifestyle, stay in a luxury hotel along the main seafront promenade, with views over the beach to the south and rooftop views of Christ the Redeemer and the mountains to the North. We stayed at the Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel, a four-star luxury hotel overlooking the ocean.

The stay at this hotel was fantastic. Our room was a side view looking at Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer. It was also only a 5 minute walk to the official pick up stop for going to Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer) and less than a £5 taxi fare to go to Sugarloaf mountain. The hotel had free sunbeds and...

This is a great hotel right across from the beach with its own area with free sun beds and umbrellas. Roof top swimming pool and spa with bar. Staff were all most helpful and breakfast was excellent. High rooms had fantastic views over beach. A great base for exploring Rio with plenty restaurants nearby.

Arrived late in the evening but all good. Given 2 glasses of sparkling wine which started everything right. Room was spacious and had amazing views of Copacabana.

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.
