I stayed at the Majestic Rio Palace in November 2011 for 2 weeks and while this establishment has much going for it such as good location for the wonderful beach and transport links, delicious buffet breakfast, helpful front of house staff and entirely adequate shower it was pretty average in other areas. My room, although only a standard was both... More

We selected this hotel for the location and the price and were very pleased!! The service is exceptional as is the location. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach and there are lots of restaurants and bars around. We loved the fact that the hotel was on a residential street and just a block away from a busy... More

Stayed over for new years 2010. arrived on the 26th dec, first impressions are good but.... Cleaners are very loud (talking and making/moving beds) in the morning. You can hear every single flush from the next room as if it was in your own room. This does not help when the walls are made of paper! Most of the time... More

I spent 6 nights here for a seminar. It is a decent hotel with good breakfasts, located on a quiet safe street about 5 minutes walk from the beach, in the center of the Copacabana neighborhood. Everything worked well – AC, programmable safe, TV (no English or French language news though), etc. My bathroom had abit of a moldy smell... More

This hotel is quite expensive for what if offers. The reception staff is horrible, not nice or efficient. The rooms and location are OK, but the most of the hotel is abandoned, like the swimming pool (dirty and tiny) or the gym. There are a lot of better places to stay nearby, for better prices.

Event though the location is excellent, only a few blocks from Copacabana beach, and breakfast is very good, the hotel is too expensive for the service offered. I travelled with my boyfriend and stayed there for one night only. We were not able to sleep because of a terrible noise caused by one room jacuzzi. When this noise ended, another... More

The hotel was recently remodelled and clean. It was comfortable. The room was quite small but a good value for the price. It is a few blocks from the beach and on a quiet street with trees . The service was good. I think its a good value for Rio and have been to Rio many times.

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.
