My wife and I were in Rio for carnival, and wanted to stay in a nice area in the Zona Zul. I chose this hotel because the price of 350US$ per night was reasonable compared to other properties in the area. Normally this hotel sells for about 150$US per night. During carnival hotel prices go through the roof.
The location was perfect for us, within both. Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The bus store was five minutes walk to go to sugarloaf mountain and Jesus stature. The metro was 15 min walk if you want to visit centro. Bonus was the airport bus drops people off few blocks from the hotel, and the price for the bus is a lot cheaper than a taxi from the airport. There are two local restaurants, one block and two blocks north of the hotel on the same street; they are both not bad and cheap for RIO.
Now for the bad part. The hotel is basically a very budget choice: the room was like a hotel dorm with simple furniture, and the bathroom was minuscule with tiny shower stall and vanity. Twin beds were very small with firm mattresses. Soundproofing was lousy and you will hear any noise in the hallway. The breakfast was pretty basic fare, nothing fancy here. But you should be able to fill up to last you for half a day. Our wifi internet connection on the seventh floor was good.
The good news is the area of the hotel seemed extremely safe even late at night. At no time did we feel uneasy in this middle class community. Another bonus is the Zona Zol supermarket was only five minutes walk away and we used this store everyday for drinks, snacks and lunches to go.
All in all the Atlantis Copacabana is suitable for those who wish to stay in a very nice area in RIO and wish to economize on the price. It's a simple, clean and adequate facility. Don't expect anything too much.
