Copacabana Palace

The Copacabana Palace Rio de Janeiro offers the whole package. Guests are not only treated to a hotel that exudes elegance and style, it is also an ideal vacation location that overlooks Copacabana Beach.

This famous hotel has been open since 1923 and has a long history as a favorite destination among the rich and famous all the way back to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. It’s a destination that has appealed to kings and queens, as well as the Rolling Stones.

Retro Decor A Blast from the Past

While the Copacabana Palace offers luxury accommodations, it also features classic elegance reminiscent of the Golden Age with its 1920s neo classical façade.

Guests are greeted by vast marble and granite foyers, and yet the hotel enjoys a relaxed atmosphere complete with a hospitality section on the Copacabana Beach. Here guests are provided with fresh towels and a place to leave their possessions for safe keeping while they enjoy the beach and all it has to offer.

Relax Poolside

The Copacabana Palace Rio de Janerio has a large pool, but it does not receive direct sunlight. This is a mixed blessing. People who still want to work on their tans will have to head across the street to the beach, but those who want to lounge in the balmy temps can enjoy time outside without worrying about getting too much sun.

Rooms and Suites

The Copacabana Palace has 222 bedrooms and suites in all. Most of them are located in the original building, while additional rooms are located in the Tower Wing which was built in 1948.

Suites located in the Tower wing feature private balconies with stunning views. Avenue City View Suites offer a direct view of the water. These rooms are the most desirable and of course the most expensive.

If a room with a water view is important to you, be sure to request a sea-view room when booking. Discounts are often available, if you book early, so be sure to ask if a discount is available even if it isn’t advertised.
