Copacabana Rio Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was in a great location, we found a giant cockroach on my bed as we came back and the reception desk just apologized, it took us a while to kill it at the am hours, not fun when you are so sleepy and of course you cant sleep with it in your room. The breakfast was good. They were prompt to clean the rooms. pool was nice area. Couldn't bring friends over as the front desk told me I would be charged $100 per person that came by, and they were not staying over, never heard of that policy in any hotel and not happy about it

Hotel met my expectations the amenities like the pool was under construction but OK.

I will not recommend this hotel . So dirty !!! Check in took forever. The room was dingy. The TV didn't work. Lots of loud, obnoxious guests were running around all night (a Tuesday!). The bed was uncomfortable. The A/C wouldn't get cold. No screens on the window / sliding door. WiFi barely worked (my 3G was way faster). I wouldn't stay here again for free!

The hotel location is great, staff's are very friendly and they speak English... Easy access to Corcovado, Pao de Acucar, beaches. And breakfast was great, many different options...

The hotel is a block away from the Copacabana beach and easy walking distance from the Cantagalo metro station. The breakfast buffet was great, and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities are a bit old and can use an upgrade, but we enjoyed our stay and would go there again.

They don't allow you to bring guests in. If you want something cheap, this is it but don't expect good A/C or even good service.

stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is on a very busy street, and the noise from the street made me can't sleep all night long! Make sure you have a room on the opposite side of the street!

Perfect! It doesen't get any better. The breakfast was incredible!

We found the hotel to be lacking in almost everything. They used foam for matresses. Air conditioning worked but barely cooled the room. Wifi and internet didn't function well at all. Breakfast was great! Area was low class and security somewhat risky. Price was high for what was reported for room details. Taxi service to area and regions are expensive.

For almost $200 a night, this hotel leaves a lot to be desired; for one, the air conditioning dripped water onto my head right there when I was checking it at the reception desk. When i got to my room, a dirty towel had been left in the shower. Moreover, this must have been a smoking room as there were some burn marks on the furniture and damages to th floor tiles. The only saving grace were the spectacular views, the roof top,swimming pool (albeit very small) and the proximity of this hotel to the beach. I would not assign 3 stars to it though and thus I checked into a 4 star for the next two nights which actually was only half the price, had a much bigger from and bathroom and also had a rooftop swimming pool and the view of Christ the redeemer statue as wellmasmthe proximity to the Copacabana beach.

The Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was great, as were the breakfasts. Everything was nice and secure and I would go back there ince again. 1 block to copacabanna, 4 blocks to impenana makes beach life a breeze. Great view of the ocean from roof top!

Copacabana Rio is located only 1 block from Avenida Atlantica/Copacabana Beach and within a 10 minute walk to Ipanema Beach: the location is great. The room comfort/cleanliness and overall style are good, simple, nothing spectacular, but their breakfast and WiFi are included, there is a bar, a small gymnasium and really nice rooftop pool/bar for some lovely evening views of Copa. All great value for the dollars spent!

Hotel located between Ipanema and Copacabana Beach. Very polite and helpful staff, great roof top pool, sauna and excersise room. Fantastic breakfast bar with hot food. Few blocks away from Metro and close to many points if interest.
