Our room was spacious and our...

We stayed here for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The buffet breakfast offered a large delicious selection of food. The staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of there way to assist. Evenings were spent having a sundowner on the 20th floor enjoying the wonderful views of cococabana beach.

We stayed in a rrom with a large window overlooking the sea for the first time . They changed from the second night to a room with balcony becuase originally we wanted that room. We took room service for luxurious dinner at the balcony. It was a nice stay.

Fantastic breakfast overlooking beach. If you're early riser watch sunrise over ocean. Staff helpful and courteous. Rooms were noisy. We could hear neighbours coming and going all night even party goers on street.

This hotel is located directly across from Copacabana beach, the property is a little tired and dated from the outside. The room was quite spacious and the decor in the room was more modern, it also had a small balcony, which had a glimpse of beach views if you looked around the corner. The reception staff were friendly and helpful....

This was the final hotel for us to stay at on our South American trip and overall we had a great experience. Whilst we were initially disappointed to find that a "superior" room is really a standard room that is actually quite small, everything else about the hotel was as expected. The pool upstairs is a shallow dipping pool only...

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.
