The Arena Copacabana was great. It's right in the middle of Copacabana Beach. We could walk right out the door, cross the street and enjoy the beach. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was great.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 11th floor where the views are fantastic.

The hotel was very nice, very clean, great location.
The check-in had several hiccups, the rooftop bar had poor service, the room service did not have many items listed on their menu, and daily cleaning of the room didn't happen until we called for it.
But, with the cons listed above we would still recommend this hotel... we think the staff must have just been having a couple of bad days when we happened to stay with them.

Room Tip: Our seafront room was excellent and to us worth the extra money.

Located in the middle of Copacabana. Good for the beach but transportation to the tourist attractions are the same from anywhere in the town. Shopping is better in Ipanema. After the ranking in Tripadvisor and the price we thought we would have a better hotel. The building has a lifeless modern glass facade, the lobby is small without a character. Our room was small, cheaply furnished and decorated. The view from the roof terrace is excellent but the pool is extremely small and was dirty. Breakfast was average.

Just got back from Rio. Stayed in the Arena Hotel, excellent location, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are fairly basic but clean. roof top terrace gives excellent veiws of the beach just across the road. Restaurants are a little limoited around the hotel. The beach and streets are safe to walk during the day and night.

Great hotel in every way. The superior room was just perfect. You don't need a view room because the deck on top of the hotel was absolutely amazing. The view from there is great day and night. The breakfast was really top notch..even though they charged me for espresso. Dollar for delivery.. being on the beach this place was a treasure for what we paid. They do need to fix the card reader in the elevator though... everyone had problems. There that's it my only complaint!
Copa is the beach to stay on rather than Impanema. Way more restaurants and drink patios in the buildings facing the beach. My big surprize was how safe it was to walk around Copa and Impa... we had only one minor incident in 4 days of walking all over the place.
We also found a really cool champagne bar a few blocks away on R. Rodolfo Dantes beside the Copa Palace hotel.

Room Tip: Don't spend extra for ocean facing... you won't spend much time in your room.
