This must be the best located hotel in Copacabana - in the centre of the Av. Atlantica for the beach. The hotel is modern, clean and simple. It is very comfortable, not luxurious, but provides good accommodation. The views from the rooftop terrace are amazing - Corcovado on one side and Sugar Loaf on the other. Unfortunately there was some...

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.
