Best for people with a short stay as the service is not up to the mark but the prices are cheap when it is not peak season as I experienced. In February, the hotel manager said the prices shoot up because of the Carnival. The room was clean and well maintained and the breakfast was fulfilling. Overall it is a...

Stayed here during carnival. Good location, not excellent but like every other place in Rio, during carnival, prices are overinflated. Hotel is a typical 3 star. Breakfast was pretty good, offering a variety of fruits, hot menu and pastries, cereals and bakery. Staff was friendly but nothing spectacular. Room was of a good size and clean but, as other reviewers...

My wife and I celebrated New Years in Rio, so all hotels (including this) were heavily overpriced. Nevertheless, we went for this one as it was in the less expensive end and had an excellent location in a quiet, charming street close to the beach and metro stations. I had read some negative reviews about the staff and rooms, but...

[EN] Overall this hotel is good, but it is far from being excellent: nice location, but terrible view (surrounded by old residencial buildings), rooms neither big or small, LCD TV with cable, minibar. But the installations are very dated, the furniture is old and the bathroom is "moldy" - to say the least. The wifi only works well near the...

I will try to keep it short: 1. It's overpriced, I mean REALLY overpriced. We moved (ran) out of this hotel when we had the chance and got a room at Sofitel (5 stars) with two huge rooms instead of one for only +30% of the price we paid for this Palace 2. WiFI doesn't work 3. They have an...

I stayed at the Majestic Rio Palace in November 2011 for 2 weeks and while this establishment has much going for it such as good location for the wonderful beach and transport links, delicious buffet breakfast, helpful front of house staff and entirely adequate shower it was pretty average in other areas. My room, although only a standard was both...

We selected this hotel for the location and the price and were very pleased!! The service is exceptional as is the location. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach and there are lots of restaurants and bars around. We loved the fact that the hotel was on a residential street and just a block away from a busy...

Stayed over for new years 2010. arrived on the 26th dec, first impressions are good but.... Cleaners are very loud (talking and making/moving beds) in the morning. You can hear every single flush from the next room as if it was in your own room. This does not help when the walls are made of paper! Most of the time...

I spent 6 nights here for a seminar. It is a decent hotel with good breakfasts, located on a quiet safe street about 5 minutes walk from the beach, in the center of the Copacabana neighborhood. Everything worked well – AC, programmable safe, TV (no English or French language news though), etc. My bathroom had abit of a moldy smell...

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.
