Rio de Janeiro: Porto Bay Rio Internacional

Porto Bay Rio Internacional

This smart and attractive modern Porto Bay Rio International is justifiably popular with our staff and clients. For a start, it's ideally located on Copacabana's beachfront with super views right across the coastline from the striking rooftop pool and from many of the guest rooms.

Moreover, we think its guestrooms offer exceptional value in comparison to similar hotels in the city, being relatively spacious and almost all with sought-after ocean views and balconies (unusual in Rio). If you don't have a balcony, you'll be rewarded with floor-to-ceiling windows and a magnificent, dual-aspect view. Rooms also have air-con, minibar, cable TV, wireless internet, DVD/CD player, and en suite bathroom.

There is a 5th-floor restaurant with more great beach views, plus a sauna, small gym and a ground-floor cafe and bar.

What our experts say

I loved the fact that you can survey Copacabana beach from your bed in one of the large corner guest rooms. The rooftop bar and pool area is one of the best in Rio as is the fruit-laden buffet breakfast.  Reception can be busy but this is altogether a sound choice for guests with a wide range of budgets.
