We have booked a trip to Rio and would love to stay at this hotel. However, I have never encountered so many problems with the booking. If you do not want to book through the internet it seems impossible to make a booking. Reservations do not answer the phone, respond to e-mails or accept faxes. On the one occasion I...

Stayed here in early September. Most likely the best property in Rio. I stayed at the JW two days prior and moved to the Copacabana palace. Had a large suite at the JW, and a superior room at the Copacabana, definitely take the Copacabana Palace over the JW. Pool was nice, seemed more like a private club than a hotel....

This was my 14th trip to Rio but my husband's first time in South America. The Copacabana Palace lived up to everything I had told him about the hotel. The property is lovely and well situated.

Stayed four nights over New Years in the new wing. Beautiful rooms, located right in front of the concert stage at Copa beach and the fireworks, and a terrific atmosphere made our stay unforgettable. It is staggeringly expensive during the peak holiday period but worth it if you can afford it. Room service food was average but the service and...

We booked a suite (150) and although the design is a little bit chincy and dated nonetheless the hotel is lovely and the service is very good.

Old Copa continues to be the best hotel in Rio de Janeiro and its five-star rating is due not only to its infrastructure - ample rooms, great sleeping, plush towels, amazing amenities - but also to the incomparable service.

The Copacabana palace staff provided excellent service and the facilities are fantastic. The pool is refreshing and clean, and the hotel is located near the beach. My only qualm with the hotel is the location. The area is seedy, and there are too many beggars asking for money.

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.
