I stayed in the Arena Copacabana for 3 nights. The location was great, right across from the beach. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and I felt safe walking on the beach and Atlantico street all the way to Ipanema. The room was large and overall okay, the bed was okay. The king size is two beds put together....

A bit above standard hotel along the Copacabana beach. We stayed here for just one night. Visiting Rio without one day at Ipanema or Copa is not possible. Large comfortable rooms and separate bathroom. Everything was recently renewed. View on the beach and Cristo!

Stayed here for 4 days while visiting Rio. Decided to splurge for a small suite. The view alone was worth it. Staff extremely friendly and a wonderful female bartender made the best caipirioska... although they are a bit pricy I really enjoyed them. Great select for breakfast also.

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.
