Lavish and Affordable Hotel for Business in Rio de Janeiro

Relaxing Beaches and Exciting Nightlife Collide

Sandwiched between the serene Parque Estadual da Chacrinha and the beach scene, the Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel is both fun for vacationers and practical for business travelers. While this is a great hotel for work, no trip is complete without exploring the rich landscape and hanging out with friends on the rooftop terrace. This hotel is also close to the Rio Sul Shopping Mall and Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

Avoid Swarms of Kids at Other Beach Hotels

Beach hotels can be a tricky choice for guests who don't want to be around too many younger kids. Many beach properties specialize as family hotels, with amenities serving families more than other guests. The Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel, by contrast, has a 24-hour business center, computer station, and free wireless high-speed internet in public areas and rooms. With a bar and lounge, sauna, steam room, and beach gear for all guests, this is a satisfying hotel where those seeking business or pleasure won't disturb one another.

For dining on site, there is a daily buffet breakfast available from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM for a mild surcharge. Room service is available 24-hours a day, excellent for staying up and getting some last-minute work done. Impress clients or friends at La Finestra, an upscale brasserie serving meals all day. 

Views of the Beach, Sea, and Boardwalk

The rooms at Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel are sound proofed to guarantee a peaceful night. Rooms come with a shower/tub combination, a rarity among beach hotels in the area. Rinse off after a day of sand and sun, get cozy in your complimentary bathrobe and slippers, and watch premium channels on the LCD television. Dock your iPod and play some tunes, hang out on the balcony, and enjoy a drink from the minibar.

The Bottom Line

Families with lots of children may find the amenities at other hotels preferrable to those at the Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel, but for anyone else this is a fine four-star hotel with reasonable prices. If amenities are not a major concern, a somewhat cheaper hotel in the same location, like the Lancaster Othon Travel, might be preferrable. Still, if you need a quieter place for you and your well-behaved kids to stay, or if you're seeking a hotel that combines fun and helpful features, this is a great choice.

Expert Reviews
The hotel attracts a well-to-do clientele of business travelers and vacationers; all guests are welcomed with a glass of champagne.
Rough Guide
A cut above Copacabana’s other seafront hotels, partly thanks to the attentive staff, but mainly down to the well thought-out design of the place.
Behind the '80s-style black glass facade hides a remarkably pleasant hotel with friendly and attentive staff that welcome guests with a glass of champagne.
