It was the cheapest 4 star with a pool on Copacabana Beach. Rooms were $200 per night. We arrived early after an overnight flight from Panama but the would not even allow us to lounge by the pool. Very annoying.Other than that it fine.

Arrived early in the morning from our flight and checked in at the hotel and, much to our surprise, we were allowed to occupy immediately a splendid room with a panoramic view of Copacabana Beach.

This hotel is well located, with a good breakfast and good air conditioning. Additionally, the roof pool is nice and the food served there was good. BUT, the hotel has some severe problems that really reduced the enjoyment of our stay. First, they have far to few elevators for 14 stories of rooms. There are two, and one often seems...

On all the Copacabana this hotel does not have a compare. Widest windows in rooms and public areas affording sweeping views of what you came to see. Literally ON the beach - or so it seems.

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
