Good location close to Copacabana beach, and plenty of trips available for booking through the hotel if you're not with an organised group or don't want to go round by yourselves.

Ok Hotel. The room is a bit old, bed not so comfortable and nothing nice to offer. The gym is awful, no equipment is worth to try. The price is OK if you are only in a business trip. I wouldn't go back. Breakfast is ok. At least the reception and the crew is very polite.

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.
