We used to stay in a five-star hotel located on Avenida Atlântica em Copacabana... But got sick of that bad attitude, too much security scrutiny, and too many tourists in a very fake location. We are now very be at the South American Copacabana hotel where we have stayed five times and brought groups of friends as well. Excellent rates,... More

I have been to Rio for work and leisure several times in the last years - but this time was the best experience I had so far. The hotel is well located in Copacabana, rooms are ok (simple but very clean) and service was outstanding: friendly staff, excellent food, prompt assistance to my requests. Plus, front desk staff speak fair... More

I stayed here over Easter for a week. I was unsure what to expect but was not disappointed. The hotel is in a great location, a 2 minute walk from the main Copacabana beach. Perfect for what we wanted. The hotel was spotless and there are always staff around to assist. The reception staff were friendly and always ready to... More

Stayed at the hotel for a few days during semana santa. The room was very nice and clean, a bit crowded for 3 people, but it was ok. The only thing I do have to say is that there were not enough places to hang things in the bathroom. Amazing location, right between copacabana and ipanema. The fron dask staff... More

Stayed here for 8 nights. Perfectly placed between Copacabana and Ipanema beaches each about a five minute walk. Breakfasts were great -great choice of fruits,breads,hot and cold dishes. The scrambled eggs were to die for. The front line staff Jose Maria,Ivan and Ronaldo were friendly and helpful with trips,tours,advise etc. Made our stay memorable. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice rooms, easily accessible. Not extremely central though, there aren't many Cafes or food places around (compared to other parts of Copacabana). There was nothing wrong with this hotel, the breakfasts were nice and hotel rooms clean!

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the hotel and found it decent and clean. The location is excellent - 200 metres from Copacabana beach. The room was clean but the corridor leading to the rooms is rather dark. The lights come on automatically only after a few seconds. Breakfast was standard fare though there was a good selection...

Finishing off a group tour a day before Christmas and checking into this wonderful hotel was absolute bliss. We were greeted by helpful staff when we told them our dilemma with a previous hostel. We were given a room straight away (which was actually cheaper than what we were priced online) - three single beds in a clean and decent-sized... 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.
