This is by far the most modern hotel in Rio. I was in Rio on business and stayed here 9 nights. My room was large, modern, and had a view of the beach. Good breakfast, very friendly staff, and great view from the rooftop where there's also a bar. Almost all hotels in Rio are overpriced and most are in...

My mother-in-law I and spent two days in Rio in March 2013. Confortable room and excellent breakfast. Good reception service in English. The only bad thing was the day-trip tour referred by hotel. The guide did not speak good English and did not have any guide skills to begin with. So, great hotel but select other tour guide. One who...

We visited this hotel March 2013. Good standard of accommodation . Only one lift was working so meant a bit of a wait but hopefully other lift will soon be repaired. Good breakfast, lovely staff but best of all was the roof terrace. As the hotel is in the middle of Copacabana wonderful view from the roof. Small pool there...

This hotel is just in front of Copacabana beach and just few minutes walk to the famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. It is quite new compared to other hotels close by and offers a great view from the rooftop at the 14th floor. The swimming pool is more a double sized bath tub, where you can sit and relax in the...

Arena is located just by the Copacabana beach- big plus for that as the Copacabana beach is trully amazing and much more interesting than the always recommended Ipanema or Leblon. Rooms are ok but for 4 star hotel they should be little bit more modern- no water boiler with included coffee and tea (so typical for 4 star european hotels),...

Helpful Reception staff, hotel smart and well decorated but not having any great character. Reasonable breakfast. Rooms OK with the widest bed that I have ever seen. This hotel does have the worst lift system that I have ever used. There are 13 floors and one of the two lifts was out of action for the four days that we...

We have stayed four nights at this hotel in a beach front room. The room was of reasonable size, bathroom was ok and shower had a good pressure. The bed was mediocre. Everything was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was good with lots of fresh local fruit, the warm food was generally quite boring.

The Arena has a great location in the centre of the beach. From our room we could see down Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado. We were there for 10 days. The rooms were very clean and the maid service was very thorough. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food in the restaurant was excellent. 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.
