Not only the bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped. But also relaxing in the huge living room or on the rooftop terrace with a beautiful view over the Copacabana and the sugar loaf are great. We felt very welcome from the first minute. You can really tell that Marta enjoys running her Guest House: She spends time there with... More

We were greeted by Marta with open arms! Immediately we felt at home and safe. As other reviews mentioned, her home is on the 10th floor overlooking Copacabana beach - what a view! The living area is large with comfortable seating and a small kitchenette. Our room was a deluxe suite ,it was not overly large and looked onto a... More

I went to Rio on a whim to take a load off and clear my mind. I had no prior reservation and found Marta's place online. I booked on her website then just walked over. Well I suprised her with my arrival as she hadn't seen the booking yet. Regardless, she took it in stride and set me up properly.... More

The view and the location are perfect. This is a lovely two story house perched on top of a 10 story building. It is a pleasure just looking at the entire length of Copacabana Beach. Short walk to Ipanema Beach. The metro works great and is a few blocks away. Breakfast was very nice. Marta, well, she was not at... More

I found Marta to be a great hostess. She made sure i did not sit around but explored and had fun. She even sent me to a club. The accommodation was good and bed was comfortable and bathroom clean. Sevice and food was great. Very affordable as the cheapest in Rio.

We were welcomed with open arms (literally) from Marta the moment we arrived. Marta helped get us situated (including fruit juices to get things started), and sat with us to see what we have planned, and made some great suggestions which made the three-day trip to Rio a great one. Oh, did I mention she sat with us on the... More

First the positives, the penthouse has stunning rooftop views and the room was great for the price. The building has lots of character. Marta's daughter was lovely and made us feel very welcome. We thought it was in a good location at the end of Copacabana beach near to Ipanema. The reason we booked this guesthouse was because of all... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Rio Guest House. The position is second to none, right across the road from the beach, building is secure, accommodation is super comfy, breakfast delicious, Marta is warm and welcoming and very helpful. And the Views speak for themselves. Highly recommended.

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.
