So first let me start with the pros-the location is great its right on Copacabana beach and very close to all of the main sights in Rio. Ubers are very cheap and can be found regularly. The bell boys are helpful and the breakfast is really good with a wide choice of food in the morning. They also welcomed us...

We stayed here for 2 nights but with a 5 day gap as we went to Ilha Grande in between. Both nights were perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful and were even able to print out our bus ticket confirmation for us. They let us store the majority of baggage for the 5 days we were in Ilha Grande...

I had originally booked another hotel on Copacabana but it had a few dodgy reviews on Trip Advisor before we left so changed to the Arena - so glad we did. Clean, modern, excellent breakfast and a great rooftop terrace with Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf views. Right in the centre of Copacabana beach - we could see the...

We left the Arena Hotel, Copacabana a day ago for Colombia after 5 nights at this hotel. The Hotel is central; a 2.5km walk/ jog to the also popular Ipanema beach. The Hotel rooftop is great to chill out with a drink and read with amazing views of Copacabana and it's surrounds. You can see Christ of the Redeemer from...

Unsure of where to stay I picked a hotel by the beach which actually was a very good choice. I could walk around the area with ease and markets were close by.

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.
