It's clean (very clean; sparkling, even). It's modern. It's on Copacabana beach. It has a decent, free breakfast. Its rooms are comfortable. Its staff is competent and helpful. Why is the water in the toilet cloudy and mildly odiferous? Why does the wifi cost extra? These are among life's mysteries. The place isn't cheap. For comfort and convenience, though, it...

The Arena stands out visually with its all tinted glass exterior amongst the somewhat faded, aging hotels along the Copacabana beachfront. This is by no means a five star deluxe hotel, but it is clean, functional, and well located. The front desk staff is friendly, and Marcio in particular is exceptional for his excellent English, friendly demeanor, and willingness to...

This hotel was perfect. The rooms were modern, clean, and comfortable. The view was spectacular. It's location was in the middle of Copacabana Beach with easy access to all of Rio by local transport or taxi and walking. The staff was welcoming, friendly and, for the most part, spoke English. The front desk was efficient, with Leo, being our "go-to,...

Perfect stay. New super hotel. Excellent location in Copacabana. Staff friendly. Large rooms, new and clean. Rate like old hotels which makes it excellent value for money. Laundry service friendly and efficient. Rooftop with a small pool but the view is wonderful. My address in Copacabana.

My Wife & I just did a quicky weekender from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Thursday midnight until 2pm Sunday. The Hotel staff, friendly & pleasant, couldn't have done more for US! We had a 9th floor Ocean view. It doesn't get any better than to open your dark curtains to see 1 of the most beautiful beaches in the World &...

I big problem in Rio is that many hotels haven´t experienced a reform for a long period time . Arena Hotel was recently totally reformed and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Considering the good location and the marvelous view, the price is fair for Rio de Janeiro city where good hotels are very, very expensive.I didn't experience the...

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.
