If you want Copacabana you will do well to stay here. I especially liked the roof area--fantastic panoramic views and often no one else is up there. Restaurants and markets are nearby--easy walking to everything you need.

Most people don't go to Rio looking for a quiet getaway, but if you're one of those people who's willing to try something different, the Rio 180 is for you. Spectacular views, peaceful surroundings, and wonderfully attentive staff make this a great place to stay. One of the owners is a chef who conjures up dishes that are appealing to both the eyes and the palate, and everyone is friendly and welcoming. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for one night over carnaval and were able to walk to and from the sambadrome (and felt safe)
The staff were fantastic, so lovely, friendly and welcoming, it was like going to stay with family!!
The building itself is quite unusual as it's an old colonial building and you enter via a tunnel and old school elevator.
The rooms were clean and tidy and had been decorated well, but obviously as this is an old building, we were able to hear people in the next room very clearly and also people walking about in the room above us. However, the bed was really comfortable and a great shower.
We ordered room service, which I wouldn't recommend. We had panninis and they were really dry and resembled the food we had got on the plane. Breakfast wasn't included in the rate and based on the food we had, we didn't think it was worth it.
The pool was clean and the garden area was lovely. And the seating areas in the reception were comfortable.
I would recommend this place, but maybe not the best for light sleepers
