      location to beach, meals
      very helpful and pleasant front desk staff. curious long ugly bedroom - reminiscent of boarding house dormitory - comfy enough bed - room for almost 3 more king beds in here. or a ping-pong table and bar. couple of very odd ceiling lights whose switches were hidden on the face of a defunct radio unit - took me three days to master the tactile art of turning them on/off!!! what a stupid system!!!!! tiny bathroom. have to almost stand on the loo to open the door wide enough to pass through. ghastly toiletries. superb gushing shower (having come from water-saving melbourne). very inconsistent (though free) wifi. very good spread for the included breakfast - excellent endless coffee. hotel suggestion of "viacopa" day tour was superb value - they really took great care to give you a good rio experience. great caipirinha maker behind the mezzanine bar - yum! final 4am checkout efficient and painless

      Very close to the beach, especially to the Copacabana Beach (about 5 minutes walking) and Ipanema Beach (10 minutes by car)
      The Hotel is very clean and staff are friendly. The hotel is close to many attractions such as "sugar loaf Mountain" and Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. The breakfast was good enough to start your intensive day visiting Rio.

      Good location just off Copacabana beach.
      hotel was in a good location only a few minutes from copacabana beach and within walking distance of sugar loaf cable car. spacious room, although basic. the day staff were very helpful in organising carnaval tickets, taxis, giving directions etc. nice small pool terrace on the roof of the hotel. the price of the hotel over doubled during carnaval weekend, which did not feel good value, but was otherwise good value for good location.

      location is good to walk to Sul Shopping central and to the beach.
      Bed is so small.
      Hotel location is quite good . It is near by the beach. We can walk only 5 Minutes to Copacabana and Sul shopping centre. It is also close to the bus stop. You are also to take subway at a nearby station to Rio Center. However the bed and lenins in room are not a good quanlity.Breakfast is just survival.

      good tme in rio”
      Hi the hotel had a great location, helpful staff & fantastic meals
      Not much to complain about - although towels at the pool would have been nice
      We had a great time at this hotel. This was our first trip to Rio (mother & teenage daughter) and the location was perfect for us. It is a very short walk to the beach and there are also many other things in easy walking distance. The nearby grocery store was handy - altough with included huge breakfasts and great dinners easily avalable we just got water & the odd thing for lunch. THe pool was smaill (although consistent or even good for Rio standards) but was handy for a late dip or for days when the weather was a bit uncertain. We ate more at the hotel than we originally planned since it was so convenient and great.

      The buffett/Dinner was very good in choice and quality. Staff friendly, Bedrooms was comfortable as well.
      The location is not too good in terms of where beech is located, and is about a 10 minute walk away.
      I would recommend this hotel to anybody, providing if you do not mind the 10 minute walk to the beech. The standard and quality of the hotel was very good when comparing to western standards. We all enjoyed our stay very much. We would definately come back here again. The hotel is ideal for small children and families.

      Very good location, 5 minute walk to Rio Sul Mall and Copacabana/Leme beaches. Friendly staff and decent breakfast provided.
      Pool attendant seemed to never be there ... hard to get a towel.
      This hotel was very good value for the price we paid. The room was simple, yet spacious and comfortable. The hotel is also in an excellent location, close to shopping, the beach, and right along a major bus route. The rooftop pool was also pleasant, although we were only once able to get towels as the attendant was rarely there.

      We were very pleased with this hotel given that we paid only $90 US per night. Although the bed was a bit uncomfortable, the room was spacious and clean. The location of this hotel is excellent if you wish to combine both the beach and Rio's other attractions, as it is along major bus routes.

      The swimming pool was closed due to renovation. We were disapointed that this was not said in the description of the hotel.
      We have stayed at the hotell many times when we have been in Rio. It has become our favorite hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is very good, near shopping and near Copacabana beach. The rooms are spacy. The bed is very good. Safe in room. Free internet access (cable).

      Rain and Robbery in Rio”
      Great entrance, imposing building
      No ironing device in the room
      Arriving after a long night in a plane and in airports, it was a very positive experience to be taken care of by the hotel personnel. The breakfast - (lunch/dinner for us) - made us comfortable. However, we assume that the hotel is observed by robbers. Obviously we were followed by a group of experienced robbers when we took a walk to the Avenida Atlantico. Few people were around, but suddenly we were attacked and robbed. No people reacted, not the local police, nor the beach vendors. To get more guests in the future, I suggest that the city of Rio - sponsored by Copacabana Hotels - would take actions to reach "no-tolerance" levels when it comes to robbery. This time it was no blood-shed, but possibly that potential was there hidden in the background.

      No particular weaknesses, in my opinion
      This was my second stay in Merlin, Copacabana hotel, and I will recommend this hotel for other users. The location is fine, only 3-4 minutes walk from the Nortehrn Part of Copacabana. Its also restaurants nearby, a good one only 100 meters down the street. Through the tunnel, its only a 5-10 minute walk to a shopping center. The hotel has a friendly staff.
