"Lovely location, comfortable room and bed, views of beach"
We enjoyed our stay. Bathroom was adequate, restaurant very quiet, but we had a good meal with excellent service. Helpful information regarding places to visit and how to get there. Would recommend it as a centre for exploring Rio,
"rio and the arena copacabana hotel"
just returned from a 2 week stay in wonderful rio de janeiro,i don,t really know where to start the place is amazing,copacabana beach is stunning and a fabulous place to stay. Christ the redeemer is beautiful and a must see, the view from the top is unbelieveable as is sugar loaf mountain the list just goes on and on. Don,t miss Ipanema beach or the leblon area which has great shopping in a very exclusive mall.There is an open top bus tour of the whole city which is well worth doing . Apart from the city tour we used all public transport to get around and is the best way to see the city and it,s many sights.the buses are amazing value its a fixed fair of 3.80 reals about 1 british pound to go anywhere. I have to add that never did we feel threatened or intimidated while we travelled around, just the opposite really,the local people are friendly and always willing to help you. We frequently went along the front at night for a walk or a drink and felt perfectly safe and were never bothered or hassled in any way. Now for the Arena Copacabana Hotel, must be the best place to stay in Copacabana,right in the middle of the beach area its position could,nt be bettered.the rooms are large and have huge comfortable beds and are spotlessly clean. We stayed on bed & breakfast basis which seems to be the norm, the breakfasts were great with plenty of variety and as much as you could eat. The rooftop terrace has amazing views of the beach and the surrounding area and is great for sun bathing.they do an amazing steak baguette with salad and fries at the terrace bar, a word of warning though the portions are huge if there are two of you just buy one and share.the first time we had one each and could,nt finnish either of them. I must mention the staff who are all amazing and so friendly and helpful, and a special mention to Rui on the front desk. an amazing guy who speaks perfect English and is so polite and helpful. All in all a truly fabulous hotel and an unforgettable city.
"Very good hotel in front of beach"
The hotel was very good. Apartement big and modern and with nice view to the beach. The swimming pool and terrace on the roof had a splendid view! Breakfast was good and the bottle of spumente every day was a nice touch! Only negative point on the hotel is that the internet was on and off when I was there and not very reliable
Loved this place. Our taxi pulled up and two gentleman from the hotel came out to collect our bags. All receptionists had brilliant English. Check in was smooth and efficient. We were there for a special occasion and while we were unpacking, a bottle of champagne and chocolates arrived to our room! What a lovely and very welcome surprise. We had a room facing the beach; pay the extra, the view is amazing. The cocktails on the rooftop bar were delicious. Breakfast was lovely - gorgeous fresh fruit. I didn't like all the pastries, but this seems to be 'normal' in Brazil - puff pastry and lots of cheese. Lots of different bread choices and all very fresh. The view from breakfast was so relaxing; watching the world go by on the Copacabana from the window. I spent ages trying to pick a hotel and also which area to stay. You won't go wrong staying here. It is central on Copacabana and has lots of lovely restaurants nearby. Wifi was free; connection was good. On checkout, the receptionist phoned the cleaning staff to check the room and to see if everything was ok!!! A first for me. She said there was a small towel missing.... Well I certainly didn't have it and when I told her that, she just said fine. It was a bit strange! But apart from that, I would highly recommend the hotel.
"good for beach"
Spent four days here in March 2017 in a superior room which gave us a partial view of Copocabana beach. We choose the hotel because it was on the beach front. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful, particularly on reception where they were happy to suggest places to go and how to get there. The breakfast was good but the dinner was not great and we only tried it once. The pool area at the top of the hotel gave great views over the beach and was a good place for a coffee or a glass of wine in the evening
