This was our first trip to Rio and we were completely satisfied with this hotel from check-in to check-out. The location is wonderful, right on Copacabana Beach and close to banks, shopping, and public transportation. The décor is light and contemporary, and the hotel cleanliness is excellent, both in the rooms and public spaces. The roof pool/bar/patio area is lovely...

It's right on Copacabana beach, great location. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff were excellent. The rooms are not huge, but if you're in Rio most of your time should be spent outside anyways. The roof deck is outstanding and a great place to have a drink and soak in the scenery. I would return.

I recently spent 4 nights in Rio at the Arena as part of a business trip to the city. I found the Hotel to be perfect for my needs. The rooms were clean and functional - it is clear that recent refurbishment must have been done on them. The staff were all friendly and helpful. For both business and leisure...

Very nice room, great staff, Good location. Pool is not really a pool, pretty shallow, but great to cool off in, and great views of the beach. The breakfast was good, nice showers. Internet cost me R$30 a day. Shop around, I stayed here for around 260 a night.

If you like a rock hard bed, this might be the place for you. I like a firm mattress, but this was crazy. It was hard to get a good night's sleep. The rest of our room was modern and well maintained. Beyond the iron mattress, it's a clean hotel in a fantastic location, and the prices are reasonable for...

We stayed at the Arena late March. From the start, the staff was very friendly. Our room (13th floor) had beautiful views of the Beach and even the Christ in the back. Nice buffet breakfast.The rooftop pool is fantastic. Highly recommended hotel. Copacabana is great, much safer than before. Loved it.

We have just returned from a five night stay in the Arena Copacabana and we had a wonderful time. The location of the hotel is excellent and the rooms are very good, especially ocean facing ones. Breakfast was good with lots of choice and the reception staff's English is very good. My favourite part was the roof terrace with amazing...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It's situated opposite the Copacabana beach. The room rates are higher than average. The furnishings in the room are a bit old as is the bathroom. The bathroom and basin was not properly cleaned when we checked in - housekeeping needs to do a better job! Included in the room rate was...

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.
