We ate at Mee with friends whilst staying in Rio (sadly not at the Palace itself). We started with cocktails in the lovely bar where we almost had to turn away the wonderful complementary canapés that came at such regular intervals we were almost full before we'd even anticipated going into the restaurant. Mee is a delight, beautifully decorated and...

Excellent hotel with very good facilities and restaurants. The swimming pool is very nice. Location on Copacabana is good. Classy and well decorated understated rooms (done elegantly). The staff and reception were very polite and helpful. An excellent stay for my wife and I.

We had an amazing pre-nuptial weekend at the Copacabana Palace. Our car was valet parked for the weekend, and we were encouraged upon arrival to freshen up in the Spa as our room was not ready when we arrived (as the hotel was 100% booked, and we arrived at 11am...fair enough). Lovely arrival service, and friendly porters. The Spa was...

Well…not a lot to say here. It’s definitely worth a visit giving the history and status of the property, but not sure if a repeat is warranted now that the novelty has worn off.

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.
