When you dream to go to Rio, you dream to stay in a hotel like this. You can feel history through its walls. You enjoy a heaven of wellness and overwhelming good service just few seconds from the world famous Copacabana beach. Absolute must !!!

We stayed at the hotel for three days to celebrante my husband's birthday. Everything was perfect - from the Concierge, the guest relation, room service, to the pool grounds. The friendly staff always smiling to you, calling you by your name made you feel at home. We took a tour by the hotel and the stories were amazing. Our experience...

Rio can get pretty crazy and the Palace is the perfect place to escape to. We spent three night in Rio on our way to São Paulo. It was our first time at the Copacabana Palace but it won't be our last! From the moment you arrive you can be assured of first class service by the very competent and...

Many reviewers rave about this hotel and it is often billed as the best hotel in Brazil. Well that may be the case I have only stayed in three and it was the best of the bunch. The location is superb if you are a beach person because 50 yards away over the road you have about 4 kilometers of...

You can't help but feel as if Clark Cable can come strolling through the lobby at the Copa. It's gorgeous, elegant, comfortable and iconic. The pool scene is decadent, you're steps from the beach (beach service available) and in the heart of a neighborhood that is safe, fun and simply stunning.

Dear Guest, I'd like to thank you very much for sharing your comments and impressions. I am very glad to receive a kind message from you.

In Rio and had to visit 'The Palace' after all the televised high profile attention it received prior to the World Cup. Everything it's made out to be and not at all precocious.

This hotel is an absolute dream, of course the surroundings are fabulous but that would be nothing without the superb team of staff whom without exception exceeded our expectations.

I've stayed at Copacabana Palace many times, and my last stay was REALLY disappointing. I'll start with the positive points first. I love the comfortable bed, clean room, hardworking bell boys, pleasant breakfast staff, and the swimming pool/attendants. Many other things were better when Orient Express was operating it. That's why I'd been returning to this hotel. However, Belmond isn't...

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.
