This is a hotel with total lack of character. You may choose it, like me, because of its location if you need to stay in the Copacabana area. However, I am sure you will find better options around, although Rio's hotel infrastructure is really poor. This is a cheap holiday hotel. The room I got was on the second floor,...

The hotel is in a good location and while not on the Avenue Atlantico is only a short walk to Copacabana beach. Rio de Janeiro is an expensive location and the Plaza probably represents fair value for money in the area. The room was comfortable and cool although the weather was not making this difficult!. Breakfasts are excellent with plenty...

We had a pleasant short stay at this hotel and unfortunately did not get to enjoy all the amenities. The staff was helpful and booked us a tour as soon as we got there.

I stayed on this hotel for two nights in a standard room. It has a good service and a friendly staff. Its location is a few steps to Copacabana Beach. It is a good hotel for business or tourism travelling. I just complain about the standard room: it's very small when compared with others that I have been stayed.

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.
