Kicking It Copacabana-Style at the Arena Copacabana Hotel

Going Green While Saving Green

The Arena Copacabana Hotel is the ideal place for green guests or for anyone who wants to embrace the lively, feisty, adventurous spirit of Rio de Janeiro. It differs from other hotels in the area, such as the Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel, because of its eco-conscious stance and the stylish, comfortable way it fulfills that philosophy. The classic Carioca décor also provides an authentic Brazilian experience, characterized by lots of open space, natural light, and bright colors.

Spacious, tiled bathrooms, acoustic windows, and sustainable materials are key points in all suites and apartments. Guests can combat the balmy Brazilian weather with air conditioning, not to mention a minibar. Rooms range between suites, which face Avenida Atlantic, and standard, superior, or lux apartments, which also offer beachfront views. WiFi is standard but the ambiance comes from the attention to detail, such as ergonomic furniture, clean lines, and wide open windows.

Seeing Rio on the Cheap

The Arena is in a central location that's ideal for both explorers and beach bums. The hotel itself is right on the Copacabana boardwalk, giving guests the opportunity to wake up and head straight for the water. It's mere miles away from both Arpoador Beach and Copacabana Beach, and Parque Henrique Lage is nearby as well. Other close attractions include Edmundo Bittencourt Square and Praca General Osorio. Visitors interested in history will love their proximity to Forte de Copacabana and Monte Cristo, where they can see the iconic statue, Cristo Redentor.

Having Fun at the Hotel

Exploring the area is intriguing and affordable but there's plenty of entertainment at the hotel as well. Naturally the beach is a solid option, as guests can swim, sunbathe, or learn how to scuba dive, snorkel, sail, or surf. At the hotel itself, the pool invites swimmers and sunbathers, too. For pampering and relaxation, the steamy, tiled sauna is a sure bet, while visitors can stay active and fit at the on-site fitness center. Thanks to Fennel, a gastronomic restaurant, guests can enjoy all three meals on the grounds.

The Bottom Line

Because the Arena Copacabana Hotel prices are so varied, visitors can enjoy a vacation regardless of their budget. It's a welcoming place for families, honeymooners, and anyone looking to get away. Copacabana is well-known for being exciting but it's also a perfect spot to relax and the hotel is an ideal hub.
