The rooftop was fantastic with excellent views of Sugarloaf and the Corcovado as well as an overall sense of being transported away from the hustle and bustle that is Rio. My room had a balcony with a...

Great location for the beach. Excellent dinner. Probably the best breakfasts ever especially with free champagne available. Rooftop pool gave great views of beach and Christ the Redeemer. Very good service all round.

Breakfast great, location great, staff friendly and helpful. Pool and views great. For a chain hotel it misses the mark.....Beds have seen better days, rooms although always clean didn't smell fresh and inviting on our arrival. Maybe time drapes were cleaned not sure! Smelt musty No bottled water in room, minimal bathroom supples, soap and shower cap no vanity pack....

This hotel looks down over Copacabana Beach, across a very busy street. Our room was modern and lovely, extremely clean, with more amenities on the bathroom vanity than I have experienced in all my travel years. These in addition to the beach sandals and comfy bathrobes. We actually overnighted between two flights, in from and out to other locales, then...

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.
