For our first night in Rio we stayed at the Arena Copacabana Hotel (also reviewed), mainly so we could experience the view of Copacabana beach from the terrace, which TA reviewers had spoken highly about (and which was impressive). Our room at the Arena was a standard room and had no view, so after our one night we didn’t see...

We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival, which may be somewhat slanting the perspective. But in a complicated city, South American Copacabana is a calm oasis. Convenient as well, since one can get to the beach in Copacabana in two short blocks, while the walk to the subway is only 4 safe blocks, easily handled in 5 minutes. The...

I went for business, stayed at South American for the 2nd time. Nice location, friendly staff, good breakfast and good dinner, despite of few options. Nice size rooms and great bed. Would go back again, for sure.

The hotel is a little dated, but clean and has everything you need. The staff were helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast buffet was good, lots to choose from and the...

I travel to Rio many times an year for leisure. Hotels tend to be overpriced and inadequate, especially in Zona Sul (Copacabana and Ipanema). This hotel was a surprise: modern bathrooms, plasma TV and good sized rooms, I mean, it fits you and your luggage. The location is the best in Rio - 3 blocks to Copacabana Beach and around...

A comfortable hotel in the heart of Copacabana neighborhood (a short walk from the beach, restaurants, bars and nightclubs). Great location indeed. Adequate room, large bathroom, cable tv, fridge, phone. Restaurant and bar down at the lobby. Friendly staff. Recommended for leisure or business.

This is an adequate hotel in a delightful neighborhood of Rio. The Copacabana Beach is three blocks to the left out the door of the hotel. Ipanema is 10-12 block walk. It is near restaurants and quaint little shops. My daughter and I felt very safe in the area. The room was adequate. The breakfast, included, was quite good. The...

Funny, I found the front staff to be very un-friendly. Manager tried to give us a room with a concrete wall view. She said it was her favorite room. We did not take her advise and got a nice room on the fifth floor. The hotel itself is ok. Nice breakfast. But, the pool is tiny and the "fitness" room...

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.
