Bathroom was cosy but big enough with...

The hotel was in a great location overlooking the beach. The service was first class from every member of staff and excellent amenities and breakfast buffet. Upgraded to a superior ocean view and it lovely to look out across the bay. We were well placed for sightseeing and close to the metro. Had the most wonderful time

My hubby and I really loved and enjoyed Arena. Its across the beach, easy transportation. It's also not that far to the Cristo Renedor and the sugar mountain. What I really loved about Arena was that, it was very clean and very friendly staff. I definitely recommend this hotel.

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.
