The rooms are average size and comfortable. Not many extras but they are modern. The air conditioner in one...

We were greeted by friendly staff upon arrival. We booked an oceanfront balcony room, which was perfect. We enjoyed the roof-top pool and lounge. Modern look and feel. The hotel seemed to be one of the nicest in the area.

My positive experience with Porto Bay Rio started before I even left home. I contacted the hotel to arrange my transport from the airport to the hotel.

We were on tour when we stayed at this hotel.It had an excellent position overlooking Copacabana beach. It was right at the end of the Para Olympics and the marathon went past the front of the hotel. An easy walk to shopping, restaurants and the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Rio

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.
