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...

This hotel is located about a 3-5 min walk to Copacabana Beach and a 8-10 min walk to Ipanema Beach. Both beaches beautiful but Ipanema is the best one.

We missed a connecting flight, so TAM gave us vouchers for two nights at the South American. We had a triple room, which felt spacious even for three people. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I especially liked the location, about three blocks from Copacabana beach, in a nice neighborhood with little shops nearby. Our room faced the front...

Our room on the 12th floor overlooked one of the shanty towns or favellas probably a mile or two away if you were to travel there but we had no problems. The hotel is pretty close to Ipanema beach and not far from Copacabana. Rooms are perfectly acceptable although not particularly large. The restaurant is excellent quality and the staff...

Even though there is a small shanty town quite close to it, we had no problems during our stay, nor did we see anything happen to anybody else. It's not situated in the best part of town, but it's very close to Ipanema (leaving the hotel you should turn right; we tried going to Ipanema turning left and it took...

A friendly, clean and comfortable hotel at a moderate price. Room service is available 24 hours and is a shhort 2 block walk to the beach. The one bedroom suites are a good deal. Ask for a high floor to avoid street traffic noise during the day. I stay here every time I am in Rio.

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.
