Hotel Atlantico Copacabana3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Oh my God where do I begin..Check in was a hassle, the room decor (understatement) is 1960-1970's, the shower stall is dreary and scary, the water pressure is non-existent, you have to wait about five minutes for the hot water to kick in, the room safe was broken, the old fashion tube style glass panel TV was broken, the bed looked like it had slept over 1 million persons, the comforter on the bed was old, dingy, dirty, and crumpled. The towels were old, the toilet was old, had rings of mildew. The furnishings were old, dirty, stained, dated and downright disgusting. The bar and dining area, were even worse. The pool area was generous, but NO POOL TOWELS! The hotel staff at the front desk looked and sounded miserable. There was only one elevator working. The a/c was a common household window unit. No ice machines. Only the central location, four blocks from Copacabana beach, was good. But there are much better, MUCH BETTER hotels near the beach. The internet service was crappy and even that took us several attempts to figure out. The staff gave out the wrong information several times about log in info. NO ONE SHOULD EVER STAY HERE. RISKING YOUR LIFE AND YOUR VALUABLES IS NOT WORTH IT.
The Property is old, dirty with small rooms. The moment you enter the room it seems that you have entered in 1920 AD. The towels were dirty. Bathrooms were too small. Breakfast was worst. Basic things like toaster to toast the bread was not available with them. Better options are available at same rate
Old decor, useless service and overall crappy hotel. I stayed in a hostel not too far from here recently and it was way better. The staff don't really speak English and are not willing to help. We wanted to use a printer to print the tickets for one of the tours and they wouldn't allow us. Wifi here is also terrible and food too.
Really enjoyed this hotel. It's a short walk from the Copacabana, really convenient to be fair, and if that gets a bit crowded then there's a nice rooftop pool. The rooms are clean and spacious and very comfortable. They did an airport pick up for us and we found the staff to be really helpful in organising a city and favela tour for us. Very courteous staff. Prices are very reasonable. I stayed here in 2008, couldn't get a room here for the World Cup in 2014 but never considered staying anywhere else this time once we saw this hotel was available. A really good central Rio option.
We were traveling with Brazilian friends with high hopes for a quality experience (from American standards). The desk staff was sometimes friendly during our 4-night stay, but attentiveness and friendlines really depended on who was on duty. However, the bellmen were friendly and attentive with lots of recommendations and assistance finding our way; they seemed to be the ones to know where to eat and how to get around. The hotel location was good with just a short walk to Copacabana Beach, many restaurants and shops, and the metro station across the street. If a spotless room is what you are looking for then you should look elsewhere. Our bed was clean a fairly comfortable, but the floor was a little sandy and the bathroom had significant mold and mildew! The a/c (thankful to have it) was loud and clunky, and the rooftop pool was tiny and surrounded by mildewed tiles. Our friends had to ask for a different room because their a/c and wifi were not working. Their second room was only marginally better. Their son described their triple room as 'an expensive hostel room'. The one redeeming factor was the excellent, and plentiful, complimentary buffet breakfast. So many choices!
Stayed in this hotel for a week. Picked it as had to be near copacabana as going to a wedding. Good location 10 mins from beach. Hotel looks good on first impression but on closer looking lobby is tired, sofas need cleaning. Rooms very very basic, covers so dated, doors shabby. There is strange sort of small lounge as you come in which doesn't serve any purpose. Curtains didn't meet, only two sockets worked. Air conditioning button seemed to have loose wires and you had to jiggle the switch about to get it working. The tv was a big old grey version (didn't think they were still used) only CNN channel. Breakfast not really good couldn't get a normal cup of tea. Not everyone likes flavoured. Asked for natural tea told didn't have any. Staff not very friendly asked if they could print boarding passes and told no system was done but clearly they were using it at the desk, concierge gentlemen were very nice. Just as well we only used it to sleep and shower but would not recommend this. Friends were in much nicer ones at promenade princess or peseta a.
I stayed here for three days. My friend booked it. The room is adequate in size and the people are nice. Ivan, a concierge, was exceptional. However, the hotel itself is not. The rooms were old, run down and in need of a face lift. Not sure how this gets a 4 star rating. I added photos. The air conditioner could not be adjusted because the knobs were missing. Wifi was poor and could be obtained better in the front "sitting room" but no a/c in there. It is about a 10-15min walk to copacabana beach and the metro is literally across the street so prime location. My photos show chairs in the lobby- filthy, as well as view from room. There was a small shop selling excellent empanadas and you can get cheap large bottles of water a few doors from the metro (see photos).
I arrived at midnite to Rio so i didnt want to spend too much, I wanted to be close to Copacabana beach they say is 350 mts (3 blocks) I wd say 5 blocks from the beach Very old and not too neat, the air cond sounded a lot! But at least it worked My room had a busy view I cd see the Corcovado! The breakfast was very lame comparing to the usual delicious brazilian breakfast... dry greenish overcooked scrambled eggs, sausages, strawberry yogurt, ,small dry paõ de queijo, some fruit, lots of breads, some sweet cereals I paid $60 for 2 including breakfast so i cant complain... wouldnt ask more for less it was ok for what I paid... but next day it was $77 ... too much ... the wifi only works at the lobby, one elevator working
HORRIBLE hotel with horrible service!! I stayed there only 1 day and that was too long!! the location is the only good part of this hotel but the Service was some of the worst I've ever had!! They treat there guests like garbage and if your from North America it's almost like they don't wont our business or service! I asked the front desk to help me find a store I was looking for and they sent me on a goose chase for an hour only to never find the place!! When I asked the manager about it I was told it was my fault that the store is now closed and find another location ! The manager and GM don't speak english but the staff does ironically!! PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY STAYING AT THIS RUN DOWN, DIRTY ,HORRIBLE HOTEL
There are many extremely overpriced hotels in Rio with poor value, especially the closer they get to one of the beaches... but this one seems to be an exception - if you get your room rate right, it is actually an excellent value... it is hard to beat this deal even if you spend hours and hours searching various booking sites. Located next to the metro exit and only 5-minute walk from Copacabana, it can serve as a convenient base for exploring both the beach and the city. The rooms are a bit dated and certainly have seen better days - but that's OK, considering the price and location. So it is a combination of all these factors that give it 4 out of 5 points - it would be unfair to judge the hotel only based on the oldish furnishing of its rooms. The staff at the reception is helpful and offers currency exchange at reasonable rate as well - so you don't need to look for a bank to get your euros or dollars turned into local currency.
