As a single female traveller, I worried about safety travelling to Rio. I felt 100% safe staying at Arena and walked the beachfront promenade as late as 11pm surrounded by tourists and local families. Hotel is in a prime location and with a room overlooking the famous beach I could have happily stayed for another week. Rooftop bar and pool...

We were apprehensive about visiting Rio and particularly Copacabana. Wrong!!! It was brilliant. The Arena hotel was superbly positioned accros the road to the Copacabana beach. The hotel was really nice. Staff were very helpful. Roof garden/pool gave stunning views on the whole beach plus the statue of Christ the redeemer. Obviously if you are sensible and remove jewellery etc...

The hotel overall looks nice, but that's it. It's average minus. The room isn't cleaned everyday, the bathroom isn't as clean as it should be.. the acoustics is bad; you can hear everything from the isle and adjacent rooms. Not my favourite kind of holiday service.

A bit above standard hotel along the Copacabana beach. We stayed here for just one night. Visiting Rio without one day at Ipanema or Copa is not possible. Large comfortable rooms and separate bathroom. Everything was recently renewed. View on the beach and Cristo!

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.
