Profile: Copacabana

Copacabana’s beach is 2.5 miles long and as smooth as can be, but what makes it so much more alluring than other beaches around the world? Try world-class theater, shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and seaside champagne bars to name just five things. Add tropical weather and five-star hotels to this Rio South Zone region, and you’ve got yourself a tourist destination.

Don’t leave Brazil without trying restaurants such as Churrascaria Palace, which opened in 1951 and serves tender cuts of meat, a variety of seafood, fresh vegetables, and even a selection of olive oil and honey.

    Rude front office, led by Bruno, their director.

    Beware staying at this hotel; it's a hit or miss, at best. If you don't mind rude front office staff behaviour together with affordable prices in a safe/convenient location -- this hotel may be for you. The hotel boasts as a 4-star hotel, the quality of service is the worst I've ever experienced in Copacabana. I've had better stays at 2-3.5 star hotels in terms of customer relations and hotel infrastructure. After the disappointing first stay, I gave Royal Rio a second chance; and it started off well with the team honouring a VIP room upgrade upon my night arrival. Also, the night reception team went above and beyond to coordinate for Biomedi visit that same night to complete the RT-PRC Covid test. It went downhill from there. Because I checked-in at 9PM, I asked the night team to note the 2PM late check-out citing that I am a VIP Gold member. However, when I checked out the next day at 1PM, Bruno and his accomplice exemplified their now trademark rude machismo behaviour and not to honour the VIP Gold guarantee of early check-out and forced me to pay R$30.00. Is this truly the culture of this hotel? Penny-pinching to survive? I'm not surprised. It seems that Royal Rio Hotel has passed Compared to the decrepit second floor room I stayed in, Room 509 was excellent! Sadly, the room was a dead zone for the hotel's WIFI. I had to use my mobile as a router and placed by the windows. and an area where mobile connections were poor since the mobile connections were poor.

    Quarto com marca de infiltração, fechadura do banheiro quebrada, secador danificado, barata no quarto, música altíssima na piscina, fios de eletricidade à mostra dentro da sauna, colchão ruim, serviço de quarto de qualidade baixa e zero protocolos de covid (café lotado, hóspedes e funcionário sem máscara).

    Very disappointing. Not like photos.

    This place is definitely “past glory” & not worth the money at the current price point. Is not 4 stars, more like 3 or 2.5. Our initial room on the 3rd floor did not look like the photos at all. We were changed promptly though. Staff are friendly, food & buffet is good. Pool is area is small & crowed. Gym very old & limited. Hallways are very loud. Doors banging all night. The walls are thin & cheap. Cleaners did not change dirty sheets on most occasions. The pictures for the Royal Rio are exaggerated & made to look better than it actually is.

    There was absolutely no comforter on the bed, just a plain sheet to cover yourself. My initial room had a leak from the ceiling. They did allow me to switch rooms. The rooms seem kind of old.
