Guesthouse style format. The place is antiquated, and unfortunately not in a charming way. A dump actually. Breakfast, such as it was, served in the room. Old, noisy air conditioner. Rock hard bed and pillow. If you're looking for alternative to in front-of-the-beach, bland chain hotel this is it all right. If you select this hotel because you are looking...

Having been there in 2007 (same period of the year) and having found back then that the location is quiet and safe I booked back in October for a stay on the eve of the Carnival. Room type and prices were agreed in writing in emails but I ended up paying significantly more, arguing on arrival to get a front...

This hotel is perfectly located in a quiet part of the city, but within walking distance of Copacabana beach and lots of shops, restaurants and attractions. The staff are great, the food was great (particularly breakfast), the location is great, and the hotel is beautiful. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone!

As we would arrive late , after flying from Europe to Brasil, we made a reservation. The day before our holiday i had a last e-mail contact telling what time the plane would land, i told them we'd probably be there at 19.00 / 19.30 or a bit later, depending on the flight. When we arrived at 19.45 the only...

I was looking for a friendly, comfortable and relatively inexpensive lodging in Rio. Based on the reviews, this seemed like a great place for economy travellers. I decided to stay at this place for the first 2 days of my week-long stay in Rio. And, I'm glad I decided to do so (only for 2 days). The owner is nice...

Excellent staff but the room was a little tired. It's a little out of the way to be walking back to in the dark too.

I stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel staff were friendly and generally quite helpful. Not all of them spoke English but in general there was always at least one staff member around that could communicate with you. The rooms were of decent size, clean, with aircon and tv. Breakfast was very good, and served in...

A delightful option if you are staying in Rio de Janeiro. It is located a few blocks off the main beachfront drag in a lovely quiet sunny street in the Copacabana area of Rio. Rooms are reasonably priced with air conditioning and breakfast is brought to your room upon request. The hotel also arranges several of the sightseeing trips that...

A nice little hotel in Copacabana. About 5-10 mins walk down a main street to the beach, the hotel is tucked round the corner in a quiet residential area. The morning staff were a little friendlier than the evening guys, but all were helpful with directions, advice and even phone calls to check flights, etc. Ask for a room in...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
