“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

The staff was very helpful and the hotel is very beautifully decorated. We booked a regular room and they upgraded us to an ocean view front on a high floor since the occupancy was not full. They made the experience in Rio and on the Copacabana beach excellent. The view from their pool deck on the roof is beautiful!! Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer statue visible from each direction!!

Great view of the beach, Great area. Breakfast has a wide variety of food. I did a lot of research of the hotels in the Area and this hotel appeared to have the best reviews for the best value for money, and we were happy with everything in the hotel. The staff spoke English.

This was the first time I have stayed at the Arena having found another hotel that I tend to use for convenience. I have to say I was very impressed and will definitely stay in the future. Breakfast was much better than most of the Copacobana hotels I have stayed in previously. Room was clean and spacious and had everything you would expect in it. There was a small pool on the rooftop next to the bar and the views over the beach, across to the Corcovada and the Sugar Loaf are stunning. Staff were friendly and helpful

Generally a conveniently located hotel on the Copacabana beach which is generally very pleasant spotlessly clean and well run. Rooms are spacious and convenient, room minibar is well equipped. Breakfast (typically included) is good, wifi available throughout the hotel (though for a reasonable fee unless included in the package) and is fast and easily accessible, rooftop bar offers a great view of the strip and the Atlantic, and fitness center on that floor is small but well equipped. The only nuisance is the security inspired key based access in the elevator to go to up to one's room which does not work very well (requires several reinsertions of the key). Hotel staff friendly and usually speaks good English.Would have been nice though has the management provided, as is common elsewhere, with complimentary bottle of water.

Room Tip: try negotiate for breakfast and WIFI to be included in room rate

My husband and i stayed here for 3 nights. Friendly staff with helpful suggestions, clean and spacious rooms, very good breakfast spread. We managed to get a room on the top floor near the pool, it faces the side of the hotel with partial views of Copacabana beach and Christ the redeemer. Very good location, directly on Copacabana, 5 mins walk down from the copacabana palace, relatively safe. Lots of touristy cafes and restaurants along the beach front and smaller souvenir shops, havaianas & supermarket 10-15 mins walking distance. The metro is also approx 10-15 mins walk away. Free wifi at the lobby and the pool terrace on the top floor. no complains except its expensive but that applies to all hotels in Rio.

A very central hotel on Copacabana, perfect location. Good and helpful reception staff.
Try the excellent views from the rooftop pool area!

You won't find many excellent hotels in Rio, I have no idea why. So actually Arena is in the upper regions from Rio perspective. The average hotel price in Rio is high, this is no exception, but the price/value ratio is good.
