Arrived late. Checkin was quick and efficient. Room was large and clean. The beach and ocean view was great. The included breakfast was well done. Ideally located, it represents the best of Rio. We walked at night and never felt unsafe.

The Copacabana Palace hotel is my favorite hotel in the world. Start your day with the buffet breakfast and enjoy the cheese bread and tropical fruits some of which you probably have not met before Rio; order an omelette or serve yourself a helping of scrambled eggs; don't forget to try the grilled pineapple and the local cheese from Minas...

Large beautiful hotel. Excellent sized room with desk for working and two big windows. Reccomend the view of Copacabana beach and you can open the windows to let the sounds of the sea and beachgoers inside. Air conditioning punishingly cold and difficult to adjust. Just make sure you have an wrap or jacket to put on or in the evening...

The location is stunning, we had a fifth floor room overlooking the iconic Copacabana Beach. The room was stylish and every aspect of service was attentive in the hotel.

I had three wonderful nights at the Copa Palace. The rooms are large with great amenities and an extremely comfortable bed. I had a disappointing experience at Mee but this was handled well by staff.

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.
