My husband and I stayed at the Rio Guesthouse for 6 nights in April 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Perhaps most importantly, the Guesthouse is in a fantastic location, just at the Ipanema end of Copacabana beach. It is ideally situated for both beaches. Just to emphasise how close to the heart of things you are, there's a shared...

We visited Rio for a short stay in December and stayed at the gorgeous Rio Guest House (Marta's Guest House). I want to recommend this B&B to anyone thinking of visiting.

We selected Marta's, in large part due to the excellent reviews here. It was exactly as we hoped, and even better. The location was absolutely spectacular. The rooms were fairly large, and quite comfortable. I would echo the favorable comments that have been said about Marta & John's hospitality, and the fun experiences we had with Rafael. It was terrific...

I am travelling with my partner for 8 months around the globe and we have definitely toughed it out in some places, so Marta's Guest House was a perfect escape and treat in Rio.

Based on the reviews at this site, I spent 6 nights at Marta's Guest House in January. My stay was wonderful, and the B&B lived up to its excellent reviews. The duplex apartment is lovely, its location can't be beat, and Marta and John are friendly and helpful hosts. My room was quiet, had a modern, en suite bath and...

We stayed four nights at Marta´s Guest House and it was a wonderful experience! The setting of this B&B next to Copacabana is just amazing as are the views from the terrace on top of the 10 storey buidling (the terrace can be used by all guests). Rooms were impeccable and breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach was wonderful!...

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.
