Not much needs to be said. It is excellent, it is luxurious, the staff goes out of their way for you at every opportunity. I only stayed for 2 days just to check out Rio for a bit. The pool area was great, the room service was amazing and I thought the private beach was a very nice touch too...

Amazing staff, with a tremendous amount of class, including check-in, concierge, and restaurant. Beautiful rooms, with very comfortable mattress and pillows. Beautiful view of the pool from all 3 restaurants. Excellent breakfast buffet. Apparently a bit more expensive than some other hotels but after taking a bike ride along the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, this was obviously the most... More

I've been to Rio several times, and thought and consider all the hotel alternatives. I would say consistently that Copacabana Palace is the absolute best- one of my favorite hotels in the world.

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.
