Excellent location, fantastic view of beachPosted Feb 26, 2014
Pros: Location, comfort and friendly staff.
Cons: Mattress protectors on beds. It would also be nice to have more egg dishes included in the buffet and a kettle and iron in the room.
Location: Perfect location. Easy to get downtown by metro, about 15 minutes. Sugar loaf mountain and Christ the redeemor easily reached by bus.
This was our first visit to Rio so we really didn't quite know what to expect but everything ran so smoothly from the flight, passport control and the taxi to Arena Copacabana. We had booked a deluxe room with sea view and it didn't disappoint. The room was clean and comfortable, very large bed with a great mattress, although if I were to be picky I would expect a mattress protector. The staff were friendly and helpful and everything was very relaxed as we would have hoped. The breakfast buffet offered a wide selection but it would have been nice to have some more 'egg options' available. Scrambled eggs were on the buffet but if you wanted omelettes, fried eggs or boiled eggs then you had to pay extra which I haven't experienced in other buffet breakfasts and I have travelled extensively.On our day of checkout we requested a late checkout, as the hotel was very busy they kindly extended checkout from 12 noon until 2pm and stored our baggage and travelling clothes for us. There were facilities at the gym, a shower and a washroom that we could change in ready for our departure. We would recommend the hotel and Rio and Copacabana to Family and friends and will definitely make a return visit.

Great Hotel Located on Copacabana BeachPosted Feb 18, 2014
We were quite pleased with the quality of the hotel for the price we paid. It is probably a mid-to-higher end priced hotel, but worth every dollar. The hotel is modern, ecofriendly and very clean. The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was included in the price, and to our surprise there was a variety of food to choose from. Both hot and cold items were available ranging from fruits, cereals, breads, soups, quiche, eggs, cheeses & local cuisine. It was all good. The hotel offers free WiFi in the lobby and upper pool deck area. You can also purchase a WiFi connection to use in your room for a nominal fee. The hotel is located in the middle of Copacabana beach, so you are right in the heart of the action. The beach is just a few steps away from their door, as well as restaurants, bars and shops. If we ever visit Rio again, we will definitely stay at this hotel.

Across the street from the beachPosted Feb 5, 2014
Across the street from the fantastic beach but not near any of the other tourist attractions. English not spoken by most people, Portuguese is. Bring a throw away camera, cell phone or jewelry. A gold chain was snatched from my neck by a guy on a bicycle my first day there. Local market place nearby. Use the local metered cabs.

We arrived a day early and they honored our booking. It was a great relief and earned my appreciation immediately. The food was good, the internet worked and the view from our room and roof was delightful. They even allowed us a late checkout.

Great StaffPosted Dec 22, 2013
Pros: The helpful front desk staff
Cons: Pool area directly above our room 1302 created some annoying noise when furniture was moved, but otherwise, room was large and very clean & comfy
Location: While right across from the beach, the location on Copacabana has some rather seedy places in the area.
We stayed 3 nights following a cruise. Front desk staff greeted us in English and had our requested high floor room ready early. Helpful too, in making airport transport arrangements for us..even brought coffee and rolls to our room at 3 am the day of our departure. Location of hotel is okay, we felt very safe on the beach walks, not so much on some of the streets off the beach in this area. Overall, it is the staff that make this place shine. The breakfast buffet is excellent.
