Rio de Janeiro: Belmond Copacabana Palace

Visit Us

Belmond Copacabana Palace

Belmond Copacabana Palace, one of the oldest buildings on Copacabana’s beachfront strip, is Rio’s most iconic hotel, oozing refinement and luxury. It is now owned and operated by the prestigious Belmond group (formerly Orient Express). 

A fine neo-classical façade sets the tone for this sumptuous property, elegant and stylish throughout. Assuredly first class in its facilities and attitude to its guests, the hotel offers old-fashioned, attentive service. 

Each of the rooms and suites is unique, varying in size and view – we recommend splashing out on a pool or sea view room and if you are staying for three nights or more, (please ask us about complimentary upgrades).

The swimming pool is the finest of any hotel in the city, and its terrace – the setting for Brazil's most sumptuous breakfast – is a delightful place to catch your breath between sightseeing, shopping, dining and people-watching.

What our experts say

Once exclusive to the élite of Brazilian society, the Copacabana Palace is perfect for a bit of self-indulgence and is still popular with presidents, rock stars and celebrities. Recently voted one of the top ten hotels in the world.
