Beautiful hotel, located in a convenient proximity to the beach. Hotel staff was generally quite nice. Pool and restaurants were lovely. Rooms were big and spacious. The breakfast buffet had a lot of the local foods.

The best hotel in Rio, awesome stay
Reviewed 1 week ago

Yes, this hotel is expensive, but you so get what you pay for. We had 2 wonderful suites, perfect check in and out service, great restaurants, nice pool (the sun tanning part is a bit limited in the winter) but you have also Copacabana beach right outside if you want to soak up more rays. Great location, perfect bed, shower, and bathroom. Service is 100% up to speed and the really try to talk to you and make you feel comfortable. The spa is awesome and definitely not the most expensive I have been too. I will 100% go back here, this was just 100% bliss

Elegance and quality in the best hotel in Rio!

The Belmond Copacabana Palace is undoubtedly the best option for those who want to experience the best of Rio's hospitality.
The rooms are very well decorated and super comfortable. The housekeeping service is impeccable, and there are many details that make any guest feel special.
A final word to the Guest Relation Manager, Brigitte Raganaud, who warmly welcomed us in one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.
A must visit in the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro.

Best in class
Reviewed 1 week ago

Some hotels are just perfect, this is one of them. We stayed for 4 nights and had a blast! Ranging from the breakfast, pool, sushi, Italian, to the spa... the service is way above average and clearly the best in class.
Will do copa again!

The best of the best

Copacabana is an institution and a landmark in Rio de Janeiro. It sits afront copacabana beach with it's fancy sidewalk and colorful people. It has remained an upscale property through up to date renovations and touches of the modern world while maintaining true to it's history. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. We had two so we had a sampling. The restaurant is alive and happening at all hours of the day. The pool is the center of the hotel and to the side of the restaurant, so there are always people poolside but not many were in the pool during our stay. Lovely view of the beach from rooms overlooking the pool. The sunday brunch is one I'd try to hit whether staying in the hotel or not.
