I have never been in Brazil before so I don't have anything to compare this hotel to but it's seems far from a 4 Star Hotel at least in the United States. The service in the restaurant, the bell staff and the hotel cleaning staff were outstanding. There was one younger lady at the front desk that was ALWAYS positive... More

Excellent and friendly customer service. Pool and bar are a nice, safe and relaxing experience. Breakfast was always solid with plenty of options. Minestrone soup and Caesar salad recommended. The hotel is perfectly located between the beach and the mall (both under a 10 minute walk). Bus station very close walk as well. Grocery and restaurants all very, very close.... More

The Merlin Hotel was an overall good experience. Very nice Guest Services Agents, extremely clean (yet slightly dated) rooms and in a good location. It's two blocks from the beach volleyball courts at Copacabana Beach and a $50 Real (or ($18USD) cab ride to the airport (GIG). If you're a walker, it's about 40 min to Ipanema Beach (or a... More

We spent 8 nights at The Merlin during the Olympics, and we were very happy with the hotel. The staff was more than helpful, the breakfasts were delicious with many choices, the beds were very comfortable, and everything was clean. The roof deck and pool were a nice place to relax after hectic days. A short walk to Copacabana Beach,... More

We have spend good weeks while the Olympic Games. Everybody were smiling and listening for us. Even if nobody were speaking French it was possible to be understood in English. Personal were there for us, transport, laundry, questions, etc. Thanks to your team. A special one for Maria at the desk. Breakfasts were good.

Traveled to Rio de Janeiro to attend the Olympic Games with my son. The hotel staff were always courteous and friendly. The hotel was well located in Copacabana and for visiting Cenral Rio de Janeiro ann Ipanema. I would stay here again!

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.
