The concierge recommended several exquisite sites and quaint restaurants to ensure you have the complete Rio experience. Close to the Copacabana promanade and close to Ipanema beach.

In new hands since I last stayed there I was pleasantly surprised to see just how much care and attention to detail has been lavished on the Copa by it's new owners, Belmond. Travelling unaccompanied and somewhat incognito I was delighted by the complimentary suite on offer with the usual magnificent view onto Copacabana beach. A very comfortable sitting room... More

We stayed at the Belmont Copacabana Palace from 15 September until the 19th. The level of service was outstanding. From the moment we walked in the front door until we left, we were treated as royalty. The accommodations were beautiful and the premises very well maintained. One could not ask for a more pleasant vacation experience. We highly recommend this... More

Check in Welcome drink offered ( coffee, coconut water, no champagne ). The Hotel has 2 separate buildings, the main building and the annex . I suggest that you DO NOT STAY in the annex, as it does NOT have the charm and the ambiance of the main building. Suites ending in 03 are bigger than the others Floors 1... More

I treated my wife (birthday) to Sunday Lunch at the Pool side restaurant, it was amazing with free flowing Sparkling wine, which was very nice, (made in Brazil). Plenty of variety of food and even BBQ'd small lobsters and steak fresh of the BBQ at the pool side. Great service Fully recommend

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.
