Porto Bay Rio de Janeiro
Smart and attractive modern hotel with glorious views, a fabulous pool and an ideal location on the Copacabana beachfront: great value for Rio.
This smart and attractive modern Porto Bay Rio International is justifiably popular with our staff and clients. For a start, it's ideally located on Copacabana's beachfront with super views right across the coastline from the striking rooftop pool and from many of the guest rooms.
Moreover, we think its guestrooms offer exceptional value in comparison to similar hotels in the city, being relatively spacious and almost all with sought-after ocean views and balconies (unusual in Rio). If you don't have a balcony, you'll be rewarded with floor-to-ceiling windows and a magnificent, dual-aspect view. Rooms also have air-con, minibar, cable TV, wireless internet, DVD/CD player, and en suite bathroom.
There is a 5th-floor restaurant with more great beach views, plus a sauna, small gym and a ground-floor cafe and bar.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Great location, staff were helpful and let us check out later. The rooftop bar and pool had amazing views and were a great place to rewind. The breakfast was the best of our trip, the restaurant/room service food is nothing to write home about but equally there are lots of great options very local so wasn't a problem.CAA, London
