Just Okay

The best thing about the hotel is the location. You can cross the street and you are on the beach. However the hotel does not live up to the expectations of a 250$/day hotel. Beds are hard, not one bit comfortable. The elevator is so small and cramped up. You need to insert your card before you press the floor you want to go to, the funny thing it never recognizes your card and 9/10 times you miss your floor because it does not register your card on time. Breakfast is good, but room service isnt the greatest.

not a 4 star

very basic hotel. There was always a line at reception. Took almost an hr to check in despite arriving at 4pm. When we got to the room the toilet was block. We had to wait 30 mins in the room for a member of staff to come and unblock the toilet. Selection at Breakfast was limited.

Fun location and stay

Central location.. Upgraded room with sea view is totally worth it..after all you're overlooking one of the most famous beaches in the world.. Room was simple and clean, nothing fancy...no complimentary water, no free internet in rooms, bed was harder than normal...we got a nice quiet room facing the sea up at the 10th floor...bathroom amenities were not up to the mark of a 4 star property..all hotel staff is very friendly and helpful..breakfast is decent..lots of fruits, cakes/pastries, and hot items, no eggs cooked to order station though....room service is reasonably priced...I would recommend this hotel for location...but if you're looking for luxury, try another property...

Good value overall

Pros: The location was perfect and there was a beautiful pool/snack bar on the 13th floor overlooking the beach. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke English very well. Cons: beds were very hard, and the poolside bar only stayed open until 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday night...would be great if that bar stayed open later for guests to enjoy the evening outside.

Rota 66 for a good Mexican dinner and fun atmosphere! Approximately 0.75 or 1-mile walk from Arena hotel.

Just ok, except for the location

The location is great, but once you get there you realize there is no need to stay right on Av. Atlantica since the city is pleasant to walk around and it has easy access to the beach anyway. Highly overpriced, considering it was low season... The front desk staff was nice and accommodating, forget about communicating in English with anyone else - very frustrating. The room was ok... just ok... dated. Linens were a little questionable, same as towels, they're old and so is the furniture. Breakfast had plently of options. Internet is expensive in the rooms but free in lobby. I mentioned the trip was on a special occasion, they couldn't have cared less. On the days prior to the trip I emailed them to ask about transporation to the hotel and did not hear back.

Terrific location

This was our first visit to Rio and we found the hotel using reviews on line. The hotel was in a great location for the beach, restaurants and shopping. The room was very nice and we had a side view of both the beach and the Cristo Redentor. Breakfast was great. Lots of choices and well prepared. Staff was helpful and spoke English.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

We hired a driver to take us to the attractions. That gave us the advantage of being able to stay longer some places, less at others as well as picking our own restaurants for lunch. He was English speaking and a great guide.
