    The name of the hotel certainly makes it sound very trendy. But it really isn't the case. Copacabana as a place is a lot of run down compared to Ipanema or Leblon. The lobby of the hotel is quite small. We were greeted by staff...More

    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

    I think yes. Because you will use your keycard for entering at hotel and in the room. And you can invite for anybody. I don't know about nights...
