We stayed here for 3 nights, its not first class by any means but the staff are helpful, the rooms are clean and all bits and bobs replaced daily. the roof top bar and pool are really good, drinks and nibbles excellent. The security staff outside are more than happy to (a) find you a taxi and take you to...

Breakfast great, location great, staff friendly and helpful. Pool and views great. For a chain hotel it misses the mark.....Beds have seen better days, rooms although always clean didn't smell fresh and inviting on our arrival. Maybe time drapes were cleaned not sure! Smelt musty No bottled water in room, minimal bathroom supples, soap and shower cap no vanity pack....

This hotel looks down over Copacabana Beach, across a very busy street. Our room was modern and lovely, extremely clean, with more amenities on the bathroom vanity than I have experienced in all my travel years. These in addition to the beach sandals and comfy bathrobes. We actually overnighted between two flights, in from and out to other locales, then...

We travelled through Brazil for 3 weeks and ended our visit with 4 days at the Porto Bay hotel, located across the road from the famous Copacabana beach. We had a room overlooking the ocean and it was very comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was wonderful, with a comprehensive buffet breakfast. The food was so good that we...

The other reviews do justice to the hotel , location , roof top deck , marvellous breakfast and helpful staff. We would rate the place 4 star were it not for very helpful staff ( we were even escorted to a cab rank and a restaurant when we asked for advice). There are a few quirks : we needed 5...

Had a fabulous time here last week. The hotel is in the best place, just across the road from the Cococabana beach. The views from the rooftop pool area were breathtaking and a lovely calm atmosphere above the hustle bustle. A great bonus with the hotel is having it's serviced area on the beach were they provide loungers and umbrellas...

Great hotel for the price. Greeted by friendly reception staff, one of whom was Alexandre who was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Staff all very friendly and accommodating. Brilliant view of copacabana beach from our room which had a balcony. We could also see Christo Redentor from our balcony. Our room was compact but very comfortable with an amazing bathroom....

I think I expected something a bit more beachy than this long and thin building partially facing Copacabana beach, but all it is a good efficient chain hotel, with decent rooms, good breakfast and some nice services. Things could be a bit better as they don't leave free water in the room. And they are building a big white tent...

Lovely hotel with a very small roof top pool, fantastic views over the Copacabana beach. Breakfast was average, decent selection, some not to our taste but good if you like a lot of fresh fruit for breakfast. Room is nice and clean, staff very polite and helpful.

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.
