We missed a connecting flight, so TAM gave us vouchers for two nights at the South American. We had a triple room, which felt spacious even for three people. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I especially liked the location, about three blocks from Copacabana beach, in a nice neighborhood with little shops nearby. Our room faced the front...

The breakfast room is great and the buffet is delicious except for the fruit juices.It's water with some fruit taste.Unworthy for a Brazilian hotel. The lobby is nice and so are the bar...

Our room on the 12th floor overlooked one of the shanty towns or favellas probably a mile or two away if you were to travel there but we had no problems. The hotel is pretty close to Ipanema beach and not far from Copacabana. Rooms are perfectly acceptable although not particularly large. The restaurant is excellent quality and the staff...

Even though there is a small shanty town quite close to it, we had no problems during our stay, nor did we see anything happen to anybody else.

A friendly, clean and comfortable hotel at a moderate price. Room service is available 24 hours and is a shhort 2 block walk to the beach. The one bedroom suites are a good deal. Ask for a high floor to avoid street traffic noise during the day. I stay here every time I am in Rio.

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.
