Located right on Copacabana beach, the Porto Bay Rio International hotel offers great facilities and value for money. With a great breakfast, a large rooftop pool and terrace with stunning panoramic views and comfortable, modern rooms, this is a great hotel for those spending a night or two exploring Rio.

Located right in front of Copacabana beach on Avenida Atlantica, this hotel is ideally located for exploring all of Rio’s main tourist attractions. The bars and restaurants of Ipanema are a short taxi ride away, meanwhile buses up to Corcovado leave from the next block. There is also a metro station within walking distance of the hotel.

Rooms are modern and simply decorated with muted colours and soft furnishings. The lower room categories have more of an international/ business hotel feel but do have their own balconies with a side view of Copacabana beach. The hotel’s suites are much larger, come with a shower and bath as standard and have the added benefit of large windows offering panoramic views over the bay.

The hotel has 117 rooms set over 20 floors with a rooftop terrace, pool and Bossa Lounge serving lunch, drinks and snacks. On the ground floor is a large lobby and bar area, while the hotel’s restaurant occupies the fifth floor and has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over Copacabana beach.

We were impressed by the service offered by this hotel, which includes thoughtful touches, such as offering guests a welcome drink on arrival and free havaianas in each room. The breakfast buffet serves an abundance of tropical fruits, juices, breads, cheese and meats. With its own beach services on Copacabana, a sauna, steam room and massage room and gym with panoramic views over Copacabana bay, we really feel that this hotel offers a lot for your money.
