Great location, nice hotel
Location, location, location. The hotel is right on the beach, in the middle of Copacabana. Very friendly staff, and great buffet breakfast in the morning.
Definitely not a 5-star hotel, as the rooms seem a bit worn out. More like a 4 star.
We stayed in Pestana for New Years this year, and really enjoyed our stay there. The location is great - right in the middle of Copacabana beach, very good buffet breakfast with a huge selection, and really friendly staff who would try their best to accommodate everyone. The only downside is that the rooms are not modern or new. They are quite run down, so it you expect a polished sparkling rooms with new furniture, you may be a little disappointed.

Below average towards horrible
Other than its location there is nothing there worthy enough for us to recommend the hotel for.
From dripping, noisy air-conditions in the rooms, to dirty towels in the bathroom. Considering its a 5 star hotel the rooms are too small and there aren't enough elevators for the capacity of ...

Pestana Rio Atlantica
Great location on Copacabana Beach, very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
Very sparse rooms, no drawers to put your clothes in. very small bathrooms.
great location on Copacabana Beach. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. easy and efficient check in and even allowed us to have a late check out. The buffet breakfast is delicious. The rooms are small and sparse, beds are old and not real comfortable, the maid kept taking away our blankets. there is no where in the room to put your clothes. Make sure that you have a beach view, it is definitely worth it. Great view from roof top pool.

Great Location!
If you are single, Pestana is very close to "Help" (one of the more famous attractions in Rio)- Great location for any type of traveler.
Breakfast. Food service.
Can't really beat the location. Right on the main artery of Copacabana - Avenida Atlantica! If you are willing to pay some money then you will have a nice ocean view room. Night club "Help" is 2 minutes away. I did not care for the breakfast layout. Fruit was questionable, service was slow, bread not fresh. Food in general was not too good. I did, however, enjoy the bar. They made a caipirinha that pretty much knocked me on my ass (exaggeration of course) but it had a nice kick to it. Very accommodating service with hotel staff.

The bill was more than...
The localization is great to be fair, the bedroom size was small, really good breakfast, the service on the beach was great. The roof with swimminpool was awesome.
What I didn't like was few things. First of all I had sent an e-mail saying was arriving in Rio at 7 am and I was flying on day before if was possible to check in earlier as we would be exhausted...

Living in an old hotel...
Hotel location is best for leisure. Hotel is right behind the Copacobana beach and Av. Atlantica.
Hotel is quite old, like it was build in 70th and still nothing had changed :) In a case you buy "side-sea-view room" be careful - you can view the sea only by leaning your head out of the ...

Relaxing
View of Copacabana beach. The rooftop pool. Breakfast was not as poor as other people evaluated. That was not a feast! But pretty good and served a variety of Brazilian specialities including ...
Air conditioner didn't work. Transparent bathroom door does not give privacy when you are not alone in the room.

großes Hotel mit bestem Service
beste Lage an der Copacabana, tolle Poolterrasse mit atemberaubendem Blick über Rio
Großes, traditionsträchtiges Hotel mit bestem Service, Zimmer leicht überholungswürdig. Entsprechendes ist auch geplant. Incl. Preiserhöhung! Poolbar phantastisch. Bitte Frühstück unbedingt hier einnehmen. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis allerdings weniger gut.

Scxhönes modernes Hotel und sehr gute Strandlage
Nähe zum Strand, Dachterrasse
Fitnessstudio
sehr aufmerksames personal und gute strandlage machen hotel zu einem erlebnis. die nähe zu ipanema und botafoga, d.h. nachtleben und zuckerhut sowie das schnelle erreichen der lagoa lassen keine langeweile aufkommen. für geschäftsreisende wichtig: gutes wlan mit starkem signal im gesamten hotel. die dachterrasse ist bewirtschaftet und bietet sehr guten ausblick. auch hier wlan.

Great place in the heart...
Very good location in Copacabana - right across from the beach. Friendly and helpful staff, and the usual great Brazilian breakfast. Also has a nice rooftop pool.
No bad comments.
