The spacious appartment is on the top floors with an amazing terras overlooking Copacabana (an additional terrace on top of that) Great, super breakfast on the terrace. Safe, 24h guarded. You are free to come and go, use the guest...

We stayed with Marta during the 2017 New Years celebrations in Rio. Her guesthouse is perfectly situated on Copacabana Beach with an awesome view across the bay towards Sugarloaf. There is a small kithcenette where you can keep and make food during your stay. Ipanema and the Metro station is within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable, but the terrace...

This place has it all. 1) You're right next to the beach, so if you want to go for a swim just head out dressed for the beach! 2) Amazing roof terrace where you have a magnificent view over the whole of Copacabana beach 3) Excellent breakfast served by Lucia, fresh made juices, ham, cheese, cake (a new one each...

Not only the bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped. But also relaxing in the huge living room or on the rooftop terrace with a beautiful view over the Copacabana and the sugar loaf are great. We felt very welcome from the first minute. You can really tell that Marta enjoys running her Guest House: She spends time there with...

The living area is large with comfortable seating and a small kitchenette. Our room was a deluxe suite ,it was not overly large and looked onto a...

I went to Rio on a whim to take a load off and clear my mind. I had no prior reservation and found Marta's place online. I booked on her website then just walked over. Well I suprised her with my arrival as she hadn't seen the booking yet. Regardless, she took it in stride and set me up properly....

The view and the location are perfect. This is a lovely two story house perched on top of a 10 story building. It is a pleasure just looking at the entire length of Copacabana Beach. Short walk to Ipanema Beach. The metro works great and is a few blocks away. Breakfast was very nice. Marta, well, she was not at...

I found Marta to be a great hostess. She made sure i did not sit around but explored and had fun. She even sent me to a club. The accommodation was good and bed was comfortable and bathroom clean. Sevice and food was great. Very affordable as the cheapest in Rio.

We were welcomed with open arms (literally) from Marta the moment we arrived. Marta helped get us situated (including fruit juices to get things started), and sat with us to see what we have planned, and made some great suggestions which made the three-day trip to Rio a great one. Oh, did I mention she sat with us on the...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
