This hotel did not disappoint! It's beautiful, with galleries of old photos worth an hour or two of your time to see. It was perfectly located directly on Copa Cabana Beach. The service was great, as was the bar. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves while staying here.

Great weekend stay with the family in the most traditional luxury address in Rio. Beautiful art-deco architecture from the 30’s, perfectly refurbished and updated to offer high-end comfort and charm. Great facilities and exceptional service despite all the limitations caused by the pandemic. Restaurant offering limited to one, but it worked just fine. Very interesting package for the weekend, checing in at 10 am and out at 4 pm. Highly recommended to enjoy Copacabana, well located while offering a quiet place to relax.

I have stayed a couple of times in the hotel over the last 25 years and keep coming back all the time for leisure as well as business. The hotel sits in copacabana just across the beach. Copacabana might not be the best area to stay in rio but the hotel is every reason to come here. The art deco facade is stunning and stands out on the long strech of buildings along the seafront. Rooms are big and all very tastefully appointed with all amenities you might need. All the furniture and decoration is of high quality. Bathrooms are big and nice. I always stay in the historical building in a room or suite facing the atlantic. Breakfast is served poolside in a winter garden with views of the beach and avenida atlantica or on the terrace by the pool. The food choice is great and of high quality. Staff is very friendly and helpful everywhere in the hotel. They are all well trained to deliver an outstanding and perfect service. Restaurants in the hotel are great with Cipriani being the flagship. Public areas are nicley decorated and you feel privileged to be in this hotel.

I stayed here for a Conference, held at the hotel. I was the best Conference I have been to for 30 years. It helped that the weather was perfect. I booked a suite with sea view, which was fabulous, big lounge with Art Deco mirror, lovely balcony with comfortable chairs, and table overlooking the beach. Nice bedroom, really comfortable she sheets, good aircon. Large bathroom with bath, double sink, and separate shower. Only issue was wifi, which was intermittent, but not fault of the hotel, this was Rio! I was in the 'Annexe', which is almost as old as the main hotel, with antique lifts, which though lovely were unreliable! I had to use the Service lift on one ocassion.,Huge Pool and 4 Retaurants. The Coffee shop, where I ate, had really good food, as good as the Michelin Star restaurants also in the Hotel. What was really noticeable was the friendliness of the staff, everywhere, Resturant, cleaning staff, Front Desk. The Duty manager, George, personally went to get some heart Pills I had forgotten, and got a reduction using his health Insurance! Private area on the beach wiyh Parasol, lounger and water. I last sytayed her 40 years ago on my first visit, when the hotel was Grand but run down. No longer, a fabulous Place. Needless tosay, the Conference also ran like clockwork, with excellent food and service..
