The hotel isn't as bad as some of the earlier reviews state; the location is good and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is actually very good as well. Those are the only positives. The rooms are incredibly noisey; not just the traffic but also in my room you could hear everything going on in the other room be it...

This place is disgusting!!! They make you pay upfront because they know their hotel is a complete dump. Our nightmare here started by having to change rooms because the beds were so old and uncomfortable – the springs were coming through the mattress. Then in the middle of the night the air condition stopped working. The next day, we found...

This hotel is in a very strategic position one block from Ipanema beach and one block from Copacabana. The room was little but clean and the bathroom was new and spacious. The only tihing to complaint was the air conditioner that was noisy when at high speed. Staff was very polite and charming, speaking italian as well. I had a...

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.

“Don't get a superior room. They have a long and ridiculously wide hallway (that is what you are paying for). The WIFI strength suffers as a result. Also, you are at the front of the building, which can be loud (a lot of noise comes through the air conditioner from the street).”
