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.

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.

One big horror
The only positive point of our stay at Pestana was quite good location, close to beaches Copacabana and Ipanema.
Awful crowded breakfasts, dirty water in the swimming pool with pubic hair on the oily surface, unfriendly service check in and check out took definitely too long, actually I would never recommend ...

The room is great and clean. The rooftop swimming pool is a real plus
The service at the reception is not that great. Breakfast is absolutely boring and poor. Room service is a disaster: we got a very bad club sandwich and cold fries

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.

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.
