Great room with beach front view. Well worth the little extra dollars to get a view. Well appointed rooms. Good bathroom. Great shower and confortable big bed. Very clean. We stayed three nights and loved it. Breakfast was a little different everyday and a huge array of foods. Very helpful staff. I would recommend this Hotel.

Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception and in the restaurants. We could stay until 4 p.m. without charge at the last day. Inside is all nearly new. We got a two room suite in level 10. Glass front to the beach. It is fantastic, when you are "engaged" in the great bed and can see the beach and...

The location of this hotel is central on Copacabana beach. The views of Copacabana beach from the floor to ceiling windows are to die for. The room was large, had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The reception staff were very helpful and efficient. Security was good as you had to use your room key-card to operate...

Excellent location, wide variety for breakfast, very clean rooms and facilities, the staff is always willing to help about anything you might need. I only suggest to stay the roof open all night long or maybe later than 10.30 pm since sometimes you want to keep enjoying the view at night from the balcony. But I would definitively come back...

As hotel stars go they must be different thoughout the world as I think this would struggle to make 3 in the far east but I guess it ticks the boxes. There didn't seem to be any porters to help with cases to the room. We had a standard room which was adequate with a lovely big bed and shower...

I suggest you book an ocean view room on 8th floor or higher. Hotel has central location on Copacabana beach. The staff are all polite and very helpful. Hotel is safe and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and clean. Off all of Arena's hotels this one wins in location. I would highly recommend for solo travelers, couples, and groups.

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.
