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!

The pool, rooms, views and meals were all excellent. No words can describe the excellent staff (especially the lovely lady front of counter) , if the language made communication difficult somebody else would be there so quickly to assist. What a delight breakfast was with such excellent service.

Merlin hotel is a lovely place to stay. It's a short walk from the beach and about 10 minutes from the local Metro station. The room is nice and the breakfast is great (although the same thing everyday). The only minor issue I had with the hotel was that, although the lobby looks cosy, it was always empty and you...

Friendly staff, everything as promised, and only three blocks from Copacabana. The swimming pool is on the roof from where you have a view over the quarter. If you are not looking for a place right on the beach that's a very good alternative.

Some would say that Copacabana is the place to be. I think it would have been much better to be down the Ipanema/ Leblon end or Saint Theresa for something different. Being right down one extreme end of Copacabana meant being away from the better shopping and cafes. Also the great beaches are beyond Leblon. Average hotel. Nearly missed my... More

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.
