Excellent located hotel, short walk to the beach or to the metro for exploring the city. The staff are very helpful. There is a huge choice at breakfast. Excellent roof top pool and seating area for relaxing and enjoying the views. Rooms are spacious and have everything you need.

This hotel is within easy walking distance to many things-- the Metro, the beach, a nice variety of good restaurants and many bus lines. As with any hotel anywhere, there are always some positive and negative aspects. Positive>> great roof deck pool, magnificent breakfast buffet, comfortable beds, good air conditioning and cable TV, front desk staff helpful and accommodating. Rooms... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - the reception were very helpful and friendly and as a group of girls travelling alone they always called taxis for us and made sure it was safe. The room was spacious and very clean and we would definitely stay here again!

This hotel is in a great location for the beach and everything Rio has to offer. We stayed for three nights and found the room large and very clean. The pool was great and we enjoyed the sauna in our room. The staff were really helpful and allowed us to store our bags for a few days before us checking... More

Hotel is two blocks from copacabana beach. It's the opposite end than ipanema beach but right near sugarloaf (although you'd still need a taxi to get to the bottom of the cable car). The pool isn't huge but it's perfect for cooling off. Breakfast is crazy as it can't really cope with the volume of guests. For the price we... More

We have just returned from a 12 night stay at this hotel. Staff were very friendly and spoke good English at reception. Breakfast was good and the restaurant was good to eat at in the evening. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was ok. We only used the pool area once as the weather wasn't the best but it has... More

Overall we had an OK stay here, the first room we were out in was not good, the windows were covered in a a film, the bathroom wasn't clean and on our return from reception to move our bags we were greeted by a large cockroach walking around the floor.

Stayed with my young family. The hotel is showing lots of signs of wear and tear and to me doesn't justify being a 4 star. No iron, no kettle and a run down bathroom with hard beds. The location is a positive, being a block away from Copacabana and the reception team are friendly and helpful. The breakfast too was... More

Such a great hotel! Only 5 minutes walk from the Copacabana. Great staff, not all speak English but they are so helpful and nice. Only downside is the bad wifi. Breakfast is very various and delicious. Would definitely to anyone! Will be coming back here soon!

The hotel needs a facelift, but by Brazilian standards, it's great value for money and a convenient location. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's close to the Metro (very frequent and safe), so useful for travelling around to different areas. The rooftop pool is great if you want to relax and have a drink - with nobody trying to sell...

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.
