The Apa hotel is not cheap but the location makes up for this. It's about 3 blocks from the sea front and close to the metro which was a bonus. We requested a double bed and was given 2 singles which was all that they had. We found the staff fairly helpful but not very smiley- language barrier was a bit of an issue.
In the room and the corridor there was an awful 'drain' smell. The shower wasn't great- no pressure or shower head. The room was large and had a balcony.
The breakfast was good but not brilliant - it could fill you up.
Internet / PC was available and was free for 15 minutes.
Generally it was a basic hotel in a good location- wouldn't go back since there are better hotels.

Room Tip: Ensure you request for a double bed or balcony when booking because it is not guaranteed

I stayed at Apa for two nights. It is in a perfect location not only to Copacabana beach but to plenty of shops and restaurants ideal for anything you might need. The area felt safe and easily to find your way around. The rooms are clean and equipped with all the necessities (though I do find the tiled walls slightly suffocating in the humidity). The staff are excellent and make you feel like you're in a 5 star, they were always at hand to help me decide where to go, eat, how to get ere etc.... Will definitely be checking in again next time im in Rio. Thank you.

Simple!!
Room smell was disgusting. I couldn't even breath. Staff is absolutely unkind. I can't believe tripadvisor's review is good. I bet if you stay in this hotel your vacation be destroyed.

A very functional room in a good location. This hotel had everything we needed and was a short walk to Copacabana beach and the Metro. The room was clean, the water pressure was good, the AC worked well, it had a fridge and a safe, and was very spacious. The staff was helpful (though some were friendlier than others) and we were very happy with the breakfast. It was much cheaper than nearby hotels that are right on the beach. But the room hasn't been renovated in some time. It's not a luxury hotel by any means. There wasn't a lock on the window and the balcony door lock was flimsy (though we felt pretty safe).
