Stayed for a total of 8 nights during the Olympics in August 2016 and liked it so much I rebooked for 5 days for the Paralympics 2 weeks later in September. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This hotel gave me a Goldilocks feeling (meaning everything was "just right") : located in the heart of Copacabana, cozy and just steps across...

The hotel does not match the pictures. The rooms did not look like they do in the photos. Overall service was ok but they refused to change our room despite the building works going on in the hotel. They serve pork in all meals even if you ask for then not to. I had to become a veggie in Rio...

We just departed from room 704--a great, front and center, Copacabana Beach location with the added bonus when the curtains open, of having a lively and full view of the beachfront. The breakfast was very good. Better than normal hotel type breakfast. Fresh fruit abounded as well as scrambled eggs that tasted like scrambled eggs, various pastries, etc. We would...

We stayed in the Olinda Rio between tours to Brazil and Peru. A great location right on Copacabana Beach. Hotel is comfortable and many of the staff speak English. Breakfast was buffet style with a good selection. The room was spacious and clean. Would recommend.

As this was going to be our one and only trip to Rio it was important for us to get a room with a sea view over Copacabana beach but one that didn’t cost the earth. Impossible right? Fortunately for us it was possible in this Hotel. The hotel is not flash but neither is it horrible. There is refurbishment...

Very convenient to the beach mid Copacabana. I had a suite near the top floor with a balcony, rather simple. Airconditioning was just ok. No english channels, wifi was just ok, breakfast was very good.

My husband and I recently stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We arrived very late at night and unfortunately had some issues with our room, but were thankfully upgraded to a beach front room, which had amazing views. The front of house were extremely helpful and helped us book our tours. They provide fresh beach towels at the reception...

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.
