Great location directly across the road from Copacabana Beach. We upgraded to an ocean view room on the advice of previous tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful with any questions we had regarding directions. Breakfast was free with a wide selection of food. We enjoyed a meal at the pool on one occasion...

My Wife and I stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is located directly across om the famous Copacabana beach which our room overlooked, the room was large and modern and breakfast was included and offered a large choice of hot and cold dishes. It is also within walking distance of a large number of restaurants.

The service in the hotel was perfect and the breakfast was the best one of my southamerica travel. The wifi was good (about 4mb/s). Room was big...

We've now stayed here on 4 occasions in the past 2 years. Rooms and facilities are good - you get what you pay for.

I did a TON of research before I left and was traveling with a local. Book This Hotel - You Will Not Regret It. I am an American from the Los Angeles, California area with modern tastes in hotels.

This is an incredible boutique beachfront hotel on the famed Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro. I stayed here a couple of times and prefer it to the bigger hotels...it's only 14 floors. It's really private, has great views of the beach, a rooftop pool which is really outstanding and great security. The staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional....

This is a pretty standard hotel with a good breakfast choice. Our room had an awful outlook so make sure you book a room looking over the famous Copacabana beach! However, the roof top is great for a meal,a drink and a swim although the pool is necessarily small!

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood 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.
