Great hotel

Posted Dec 20, 2017
We had a wonderful time. Right in front of the ocean in a clean comfortable and large room in the heart of Copacabana beach. The staff went out their way to be helpful, we couldn’t have asked for more. We will certainly return.

Perfect beach hotel!

Posted Dec 17, 2017
This was a great place to stay while we were in Rio. It's across the street from the beach. Had a great view of the ocean and Crist the Reedemer, even though we had a "partial ocean view" room. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, the staff friendly, and the location ideal. Great deal for Copocabana!

EXELLENT!!!

Posted Nov 26, 2017
Pros: Everything!!
My husband & I stayed at the Arena Copacabana for 2 nights (Nov 1-3, 2017) after our 38-day South American cruise, and our first time in Rio. The location is excellent, right in the middle of Copacabana Beach (just across the street). We had a seaview room which was a wonderful choice!!! The room very well-appointed, very comfortable and had a nice widescreen TV with many channel options, that we hadn't had for 38 days. The morning included breakfast was WONDERFUL, with many choices. We also ate lunch up on the roof next to the pool and dinner in the diningroom. All the food was delicious and a very good value! The staff was very friendly, helpful, accommodating and spoke english! We were given help in booking a city tour that picked us up right at the hotel, and it was excellent! (Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, and sights inbetween) We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!!!!
