Sitting right at the border of Copacabana and Ipanema, the location is perfect. Our Seaview room had a gorgeous view. All the hotel staff are extremely helpful specially the concierge who are very knowledgeable. The hotel tried to make our stay very pleasant and met all our requests.
The hotel is in a great location on Copacabana beach. If you like waking up with a view of the beach in hot weather this hotel is for you :)
Staff are very friendly from concierge to restaurant staff to the bellhops.
At all times I felt very safe in the hotel contrary to some of the reviews I had read previously about the hotel.

Right on Copacabana beach, the Arena offers you a breathtaking view over the beach. If you prefer Ipanema, it would take just …More
Hotel is a few steps from the beach. All you have to do is show up on the beach and the hotel does the rest. Perfect location. all were very accommodating. Great tours pickup/drop off at hotel. Room very nice. Housekeeping gets high marks also. Restaurants/ bar/swimming pool on spot. I can't say anything negative about my hotel stay. And yes, I will most definitely return for another visit or two. Rio was fantastic. Did not want to leave.
We had a warm welcome and had a room with an idyllic view of the beach and Sugarloaf mountain.
The staff were friendly and efficient.
The inclusive breakfast buffet was excellent and there is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to on the premises. Risotto to die for.

This hotel main feature is location, location. Can't get any closer to beautiful Copacabana Beach. Included breakfasts were fine with many selections. Lobby and rooms updated to look modern but issues with infrastructure needs attention. Elevator here, toilet there, electronic door keys and little things like that need to be next on list for upgrades. This hotel definitely passes the grade and should be considered if in the price range you are looking for.
This famous beach is also the widest beach in Rio. Throngs of bikini- and Speedo-clad locals and tourists take in the sun, as well as a round of beach soccer and volleyball. Copacabana Beach is a popular venue for concerts and a spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration where partiers wear white for good luck. The glitzy shops and cafés along Avenida Atlântica provide a welcome respite from the heat.
