We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Rio Guest House. The position is second to none, right across the road from the beach, building is secure, accommodation is super comfy, breakfast delicious, Marta is warm and welcoming and very helpful. And the Views speak for themselves. Highly recommended.

We, too, had a fabulous stay with Marta. She is extremely hospitable, the beds comfortable and the place is stupendous. Warning: I understand that there is another site using the same name (which may account for the one bad review below), so make sure you reserve with the original: Marta's Rio Guest House. It's The Best!

Although a bit difficult to find at first, this is a first class accommodation right across the road from Copacabana Beach in a very secure building-top floor, facing the beach. Marta is friendly and welcoming with lots of valuable information about the area. She has a wonderful business here, with a great cook/housekeeper. Breakfast each day was very enjoyable and...

Rio de Janeiro was high on my travel radar for a couple of years. With the dust from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil finally settled, the US Dollar currently strong against the Brazilian Real, and the hysteria (and higher prices) of the 2016 Olympics just about a year away, I felt the timing was right to visit the Cidade...

Having booked our flights to Rio, i was determined to stay on Copacabana. Starting to look at hotels, i soon realised that they were all chain hotels, with soulless rooms, expensive and even more expensive if you wanted an ocean view. Then i found Marta's Guest house and knew this was the place for us. The pictures do not disappoint!...

We had a wonderful stay at Marta's guest house. Since it was off-season, she had some empty rooms, so she immediately upgraded us. The penthouse has gorgeous views, and the apartment itself (the common area) is two stories with tons of seating/couches, etc. Marta was a gracious and personable host with a big personality, and I don't think she'd be...

The reservation process went very smoothly. Marta was very prompt in her responses. Though my boyfriend and I arrived an hour earlier than anticipated, Marta greeted us like a friend, with open arms, a warm hug and big smile. She then showed us around her fabulous penthouse apartment and we were blown away by the view from her terrace of...

Turned up at Marta's Guest House to find that the manager had forgotten our booking, leaving us stranded in Rio with nowhere to stay. She kept us waiting in the reception for 20 minutes with no idea what was going on before speaking to us, and didn't even come downstairs but told us over the apartment phone. She didn't apologise...

Wow!!, i stayed in the cheapest room from March 25th to April 5th. The Host, Marta, made sure that my entire vacation was an experience to remember.

We've spent great two weeks at Marta's Guesthose, in February 2015. Marta was very nice and helpful from the first contact (via email) to book the accommodation.

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.
