Recent guest reviews

Top notch all the way! Staff superb from entering until closing door of the airport car. On the weekend it was dominated by the young and beautuful both in families and singles. A joy to be about and head to the big 3 beaches - Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon. I'll be back!

Staff went above and beyond expectations! Would definitely return to this fine hotel. Free bottled water on the beach along with a reserved area on for the Palace.

The hotel was fantastic. From the staff to the room, to the food. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Truly 5 star.

I would like to stay in this hotel again on the 26th of this month if I get a good deal. I mmissed a one night stay on the 17th, please let me know if I can get a good discount for 9/26/2015. Thanks, Dolores.

The hotel is not cheap but it is fabulous. Staff was extremely friendly. Hotel was elegant and the room was fantastic. Great view from our balcony of one of the best beaches in the world. Truly a magnificent experience!

I felt very safe at this hotel. It looked to me as the best hotel on the strip, conveniently located with great restaurants and shopping nearby. Hotel also has a great asian restaurant. Breakfast was was average but beautifully set in front of pool area.

It has been always a pleasure out stay at Capacabana Palace, my children loves all about at the hotel and also looking forward our return before heading back home. Thanks to the concierge team that kindly give my Son a teddy bear. We appreciate that very much. Kind regards Mrs Evans

Please do yourself a favor, if you go to Rio stay at the Copacabana!

We stayed at the Copacabana Palace for three nights. The air conditioner did not work -- you could not adjust the temperature and it was freezing. They also spray the bed linens and pillows each night with a disgusting industrial cleaner that smells like bathroom air freshener. We complained about it several times and were assured that it would not happen again, but each night when we got back to the room after the room had been turned down the bed linens were saturated with the same nasty chemical odor. Whatever they use caused us to break out. I have never heard of a hotel dousing pillows and sheets with chemicals as part of a turn down and we were really upset that despite repeated complaints and requests that they stop spraying our sheets, it kept happening.

We stayed at the Copacabana Palace for 6 days during Carnival. It was a fantastic hotel. First the staff is patient, always smiling and helpful. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was amazing. It was the perfect place to stay during carnival because it was a little outside of the crazy street parties. We were in room 525 which was amazing. I would go back, and stay there. IF you are there during Carnival, consider the ball at the is pretty amazing.

Loved the hotel, the staff (with the exception of the conceirge staff who was very slow to respond to request-even after a nice reals tip) and the pool. great location on Copa beach. But we felt the Cipriani restaurant was overpriced. Be sure to book a package with free breakfast or you will pay 165 br for two. Suggest hiring a car and driver for the day to see Sugar Loaf, Corcavado et al since the crowds were huge and our dirver knew the locals working the sites and got us threw the crowds fast.

The Copacabana is an unbeatable hotel and location in Rio - the presence of tiny paparazzi helicopter cameras alone should let you know that you have "arrived".

Great location, beautiful room, great service. Breakfast not included though.

Excellent service, great facility, great locations definitely one of the better 5 star hotels.
