Marta and John have created a wonderful beach front B&B that is truly world class. Food: Every day started out with outstanding fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, and fresh JUICES that were nothing less than exquisite. Location: Copacabana beach is 50ft from the front door of the building; Impanema is about a 10 minute walk, Leblon is a 10 minute cab...

Marta's friendliness and helpfulness could only be matched by the beauty of her guest house and the view from her veranda. She welcomed the 3 of us warmly, answered our many questions with enthusiasm, gave great suggestions about restaurants and transportation plus towels for the beach. She generously allowed us to use the room and bathroom long past check-out while...

Marta greeted us with hugs and kisses like her long, lost family. The penthouse was breathtaking with panoramic views of Copacabana beach and the mountains of Rio. On arrival she and her husband John shared a drink with us and give us all the do's and don't's in Rio. They recommended a guide, Raphael who took us to the key...

We stayed here for a week on a short notice reservation and found it an ideal location. Unsurpassed views from the living area of Copacabana Beach and comfortable rooms. Some days we just spent the whole day on the large patio which has an attached kitchen with fridge which was great. Hosts were gracious and helped all guests as needed....

We stayed for a week at the Rio Guest House in Copacabana in March 2008. It was the perfect place to stay for a Rio vacation! We had never been to Rio before and don't speak Portugese so we were slightly intimidated by the prospect after seeing "City of God." However, my son who is an exchange student in Brazil...

We are so pleased to have found Marta and her lovely guesthouse! From the outset Marta and John made us feel like members of their family. The atmosphere was relaxed and very friendly - it felt very much like a home away from home with the advantage of incredible views from the beautiful terrace. Marta and John were always available...

Beyond 5 stars! The Rio Guesthouse is truly a paradise in Rio. From the moment you enter and see the spectacular view of Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf and beautiful Rio from 11 floors up, it is enchanting.

When you plan a trip to Rio, you find you get overwhelmed with all of the choices on offer....but if you are looking for something that is different, something that stands out from the norm and that could make your stay something special then I would highly recommend the Rio Guesthouse.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
