We stayed 5 nights in the Arena Hotel on arrival in Rio and mid-trip. The staff could not have been more helpful to us, the breakfast buffet is plentiful and the restaurant is a great place to view the "beautiful people" of Rio walking their pedigree dogs in the morning. The hotel also has a great location. Jenny UK

We were upgraded to the top floor with a great view of the beach which is right across the street. The hotel is well located on Copacabana and only a couple of blocks from the famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. There...

Of course I totally messed up my reservation & swapped my nights. Luckily the front desk staff & manager very generously honored my reservation & did not make me pay again. Amazing staff. To die for rooftop pool. Near everything.

Staying in Copacabana

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.
