4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Late because I just found my notes taken during our stay. I still want to write the following because we had a wonderful time there. The only negative part was the room first given to us (near the elevator) and the second (due to construction). Once we got a quiet room, the rest was all positive! The reception personnel (...

Hotel was perfectly located on Atlántica Ave right across Copacabana Beach. Concierge Sasha was very professional and helped us with sightseeing tours and restaurant reservations. When our return flight was cancelled the staff extended our stay one night. We plan to return here soon.

This hotel is directly across Avenida Atlantica from Copacabana Beach. You cannot get closer to the beach than the front door of this hotel. The rooftop deck has a panoramic view of Copacabana. The rooms were very nicely appointed with hardwood floors and the beds were comfortable. The front desk staff were very professional and helpful. We stayed here during... More

We stayed here two three nights whilst sightseeing in Rio. We were in room 705 which was very nice with very nice toiletries available in the bathroom. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room and free wifi. We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival. There is a pool on roof which us quite... More

We were greeted by professional staff both inside and outside upon arrival. We arrived early before the room was available but the manager made every effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome while we waited. She expedited the service and was available for us gracefully and smiling throughout our stay. Francesca and her staff made us feel like family.... More

I stayed at the Porto Bay Hotel during a recent visit to Rio in June 2016. The hospitality and quality of rooms was outstanding. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff did an amazing job of making us feel at home and truly giving us the best recommendations for food and activities around Rio. They...

Very old hotel and the room is in general nothing special. It is clean though. I liked the roof top pool which is not big but has nice bed chair and they also have a pool side bar. You have the whole view of the cloaca and beach and also can see the Christ Statue.

The service , the room, the staff, the breakfast. It was all amazing. The service on the beach was excellent. We had a wonderful view of the sea and Christ the redeemer. I hope to come back again soon. All in all a perfect holiday

If you really want a better location then you'd probably need to camp on Copacabana itself but then your view would be a little bit rubbish, so I'd recommend this place! A fantastic rooftop pool and bar, great buffet breakfast, clean and relatively spacious rooms. This is the place you need to be!

We stayed at Porto Bay for two nights before beginning a tour of the Pantanal. The second night had been arranged by our travel company, but we hoped not to have to change rooms due to the booking arrangements. We arrived very early in the morning, and the front desk staff made sure we had our room immediately and could... More

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.
