Rio de Janeiro: Arena Copacabana

Arena Copacabana

This modern, glass fronted hotel is situated approximately half-way down Copacabana beach, with views over the extensive sands and a cheery bar opposite with free Wifi (you’d  have to pay for Wifi in the hotel).

It is top of the mid-range class; the superior and oceanfront rooms are neat, contemporary, light and well designed, with large windows and plenty of storage space. The small pool, bar, gym, steam room and lounging area on the roof make for an excellent leisure facility with fabulous views. There's a bright breakfast room and restaurant on the ground floor.

The staff are particularly friendly and accommodating; if the hotel is not full they will grant you a late check out without any fuss, and but they will store your luggage if necessary.

What our experts say

It was the friendly and helpful service that most impressed me at the hotel until I went up on to the roof: a lovely place to relax, maybe at the end of the day, or if you are waiting for an evening flight. Super little pool and captivating vistas over the beach.
