Four English lads on holiday for 5 days. Nice hotel, good rooms, nice rooftop bar and pool. The restaurant is good albeit a bit slow, food is good and good value for money. Staff all very helpful, we took three of the tours they offered and all were better than expected, recommended stay. Would not suggest drinking in this area,...

Decent rooms, and the reception staff were all nice and helpful. Seemed to be militant run, not the best of atmospheres, Not sure if this would pass for a 4 star in London, maybe a good 3 star. Food / breakfast was included and this was good.

We were only staying for a couple of nights before joining a cruise but were very pleased with our choice. We had booked a superior room which turned out to be a suite with two bathrooms and even a sauna! (Room 1401 btw) Excellent breakfast and very helpful staff. Small rooftop pool and coffe bar are ideal for relaxing after...

Good location, close to Copacabana beach. Friendly staff. Very good Wi-Fi. The breakfast buffet was nice. The room was clean, and the cleaning staff was always very friendly. Just room was very small and looking to nowhere.

My partner and I visited over the New Year period, my partner joined me at a later date, so she was not checked in when I first arrived. When we finally got to enjoy time together over the New Year period, staff that were not on duty when we checked in together became very rude towards both myself and my...

Good location close to Copacabana beach, and plenty of trips available for booking through the hotel if you're not with an organised group or don't want to go round by yourselves. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful, and the breakfast was fine, although the staff in the restaurant in the evening could have looked a bit more cheerful!...

Ok Hotel. The room is a bit old, bed not so comfortable and nothing nice to offer. The gym is awful, no equipment is worth to try. The price is OK if you are only in a business trip. I wouldn't go back. Breakfast is ok. At least the reception and the crew is very polite.

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.
