Overpriced and crummy

The hotel is noisy, very old, very basic and nowhere near value for money.

Stay away from Room 202

Posted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed for 4 nights to attend a conference. Located in the south end of Capacabana, which was not as nice as I expected. Many closed shops within a few blocks from a hotel, and the number of good places to eat is very limited. While I decided to stay to save $30-40 a night, I would choose to stay in Ipanema just because of the neighborhood. I was also VERY DISSATISFIED W/ THE ROOM I was given. Room 202 is the lowest floor, facing Av. Ns. de Copacabana, where buses and other vehicles make noise throughout the night. And the large windows did not close completely. As a result, I could not sleep for the first two nights. Receptionists didn’t respond to my request after the 1t night--either fix the windows or change the room. Saying "rooms on the other side are not nice because you don't have a view", they kept discouraging me to change the room. Only after 2nd night and repeated requests, they switched my room--more quite and better-maintained. I felt that they gave me the worst room. Because of this reason, I would never go back to this hotel. Either room has a A/C which makes a large sound. The breakfast is fine, and is available from 6am, which is convenient. The internet is not available in a guest room; the internet available in the lobby is VERY SLOW, and the computers for the guest use are also SLOW with blocks for many non-Portuguese sites, and useful for international travelers. Cleanliness of a hotel was decent, but was just OK for my room.

Outdated hotel in great location!

Posted Mar 31, 2013
Pros: Great location, rooftop pool, helpful staff!
Cons: Condition of the hotel ... very outdated!
Location: Great location!
The hotel is in a great location, close walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, metro station etc. The room was clean and comfortable, but very outdated (along with the rest of the hotel) and was pretty expensive for the quality of the hotel, but this was one of the cheaper options during the middle of Carnival. Breakfast was great with plenty of options including cooked breakfast, fresh fruit, juices etc. The rooftop pool was great to cool off and enjoy a beer at the end of the day with some amazing views of Copacabana! The staff were also very friendly and helpful and spoke good English.

Very nice hotel for the price!

Posted Oct 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
I'm very satisfied with my stay at copacabana rio hotel. First of all, very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, perfect location between copacabana and Ipanema beach. Minutes away from metro. Tons of good restaurants around. Close to shopping area, well and everything else. Only one discomfort was is that wifi signal was very weak in my room, but this is very minor.

Outdated hotel in fantastic location

Posted Sep 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
The location of the hotel a block away from the beach and the vibrant Copacabana location is the best part about it. However, it's decrepit condition leaves much to be desired. The amenities and decor look like they have not been updated for about 30 years. Fine, if you are spending no time at all at the hotel. It is relatively clean, although there was a thin coat of dust on the floor when I arrived. Sheets were clean, though, and bathroom tolerable. I would not stay here again, but unfortunately it is one of the few relatively affordable options in the neighborhood.
