“Great location! Comfortable hotel”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Stayed at the Copacabana Rio Hotel between Aug 13-20 2013. This hotel was much better than I expected, the location is awesome: just one block from the famous Copacabana beach, and a close walk to all shops, Ipanema and Arpoador. Tons of shopping further up Av. Ns Senhora de Copacabana (hotel street) and a safe area. Don't be fooled by urban legends, Rio is a different city now than it was 10 years ago. Hotel is right next to police station and tourist areas and heavily patrolled. Favelas have been pacified..just be aware of your surroundings and don't act like a stereotypical "loud" tourist. Great luncheonette (brazilian juice/snack bars) all along the street, Eclipse restaurant one block to the right is open 24 hours a day and have great açaí! Also if you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Checkmat academy run by Ricardinho Vieira is right around the corner on Rua Ricardo Sá. Affordable price for the area, hotel staff was very helpful, rooms very clean and comfortable, nice shower and included in price is buffet breakfast and in room/lobby wifi. Try finding that in other hotels in Rio...everything is a la carte. Recommend this hotel to everyone I know

Really - if you stay here you are in for a laugh!!! Oj=k, 200 more h=characters. They will not allow more than 1 friend upstairs a time. Period. I wanted to bring a new friend upstairs and could not. Don't make any friends in Rio and stay at this hotel. They are not friend friendly at all.'

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for a weekend in September, 2011.. The hotel was ok.. the staff was rude and nothing helpful.. even though we had a great stay, cause we spent the most part of our time out there and the location is awesome... 1 block from Copacabana Beach and about 3 blocks away from Ipanema..
When I booked I asked for a room that faces the street and they got me one! We really enjoyed the room! Shower and bed was great...

The payment mode is too bad.. you dont have many options to payment and book..

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

The location was fantastic. So easy to get around, especially to Ipanema and Copacabana.

- Found a cockroach in my room on the first night! yuck!
- The bathroom needs much better lighting. There is one tiny light. I could barely see.
- In-room safe needs to be bigger. I couldn't fit a laptop in there.
- I can't believe how much I paid for an interior windowless room! What a ripoff! I knew I was getting a windowless room, but thought I wouldn't be worried about it. I was wrong! When you wake up and you have no idea if it's light outside, it can really throw you off. I would recommend paying a little more for a room with a window!
- SO disappointed about the rooftop pool being closed. I got no heads up about this and it was closed the entire time I was there. It's such a lovely rooftop, but you don't want to hang out up there when the pool is roped off and no one is there. The sign in the elevator said the pool would be closed for a week. By the time I left, the sign said it would be closed for 2 weeks. I'm sure it'll be even more. No work was ever done when I was there. Lame! Disappointing. Frustrating.

Room Tip: Don't take a windowless room, even though it is a bit cheaper. Pay a little extra for a window...

My wife and I stayed in April 2013. The hotel is in a safe part of Rio close to Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Our room was of a reasonable size(been to Europe anyone?),and the room,ensuite and linen were clean. we had no problem with noise.
Breakfast consisted of several choices and an evening meal was good although not haute cuisine. staff were friendly and a bonus is to take drinks at night onto the roof to enjoy the view.
If you want the amenities of an american chain then go pay for them!

Paid too much for an old hotel. Bad linens, bad towels, cheap soap and shampoo. They charge a fortune for everything, even to use the safety deposit box. Wifi didn't work in my room, if I wanted to get connected had to stand by the door. One positive thing though, breakfast was excellent. They urgently need a renovation. For the price they charge they could give you better amenities. If I come back to Rio I won't stay here.

The Hotel is well positioned, but for short stays. He is placed in the most traffic street of Copacabana, so ask for upper floors or back side rooms. The staff is friendly, but the Hotel needs some retrofit. Good if you are going to have business meetings downtown. Public transportatin is very easy, and to come from both airports you can take the air conditioned special bus, stop at Av Atlantica and walk just one short block.

Room Tip: Upper floors to front rooms, or, back side rooms, as the street has a huge traffic.
