"Great location, clean, very friendly staff."
The hotel was way better than we expecteted it to be, we had a room on the 8th floor and our view was not only of copacabana beach but we could also see Christ redeemer too. The room was cleaned everyday, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and a couple of the waiting staff were very funny and went out of their way to help. It really is prime location for a tourist stay in Rio. We ate in the restaurant downstairs most nights as it was very reasonably priced and the food was amazing with plenty of choice. Breakfast was a buffet also offering plenty of choice including cooked or continental. There was a lovely little bar just over the road on the beach that serves up the most amazing cocktails too!!!! Would very highly recommend it.
The view from the roof was amazing. We had a room overlooking the beach and to the right Christ the Redeemer. The location is prime for Copacabana beach, you can walk either direction and enjoy the beautiful path/beach. Service and staff were friendly and spoke perfect English.
"Good location on Copacabana beach "
Nice hotel on the beach... clean rooms with a amazing view over Copacabana beach! While I was there only one lift working. I liked the rooftop pool area nice views. My issue the gentleman working behind the bar here was on a personal phone call for 20mins or so and VERY loudly talking and showing the view to the other person on the call. I was trying to relax and enjoy some quiet time. 😊 Simple hotel.
"Location perfection... rooms small & basic"
Smack dab in the middle of Copacabana and Leme, this location is perfection!! Walking distance (30 mins) to Ipanema Beach, and plenty of restaurant and beach bars to choose from close by. We felt very safe in the area, the hotel had 24 hour security and reception. Excellent view from pool, although food and drinks were quite pricey up there. A few English movie channels in the room were a plus, and wifi was okay, but extremely slow in the evenings. We stayed 7 nights and splurged on the Ocean Front room, and while clean and tidy, it was very very basic and small. There wasn't even a kettle in the room, you pay 100% for the view. This had to be the WORST bed in the entire 30 days we spend in South America. Hard as a rock, we didn't have one single good nights sleep and woke up sore daily. Breakfast buffet had a nice variety of hot, cold and sweet options, the same daily with very little change. A huge thank you to one of the managers (not sure his name, but he wore glasses and worked evenings and mornings!) We had an issue one evening and can not thank him enough for his professionalism and kindness while helping us deal with the problem. He was a star!
"Extremely pleasant stay and beautiful location"
Stayed at the Arena Copacabana during a business trip in May 2017. The hotel is located in the first row across the street from Copacabana beach. Had a fantastic view of the beach and ocean from my room on the seventh floor. The staff was at any time really very very friendly and helpful. They really went out of their way to make my stay as smooth as possible. Views from the rooftop were also fantastic. In general, I think Rio de Janeiro is a really great destination to visit, and I would definitely rate the Arena Copacabana as a very good choice when coming here and highly recommend it for a stay.
