full-service hotel within easy walking distance of Copacabana”
The Real Palace Hotel is a full-service property a couple blocks away from Copacabana beach, and it also offers easy access to public transportation - the Ardeal Arcoverde subway station is 3 minutes away on foot. The hotel shows its age a little bit, but I was very satisfied with my choice. There is a swimming pool on the top floor. My standard room was spacious and comfortable - it had a flat-screen TV, air-conditioning, refrigerator mini-bar, safety-deposit box, closet and storage areas of good size, and a comfortable bed. The 2 elevators were somewhat small, but they operated efficiently. I enjoyed a very good Brazilian breakfast. I was very pleased that my request for early check-in materialized when I arrived from an inter-continental journey at 9:45 AM. The gentlemen at the Reception were extremely pleasant and eager to help. Beyond any doubt, I look forward to making plans to return!
Old hotel but good staff”
staff, breakfast and fast internet
I was able to check in really early so I was pleased. Facility and building is really old but it has everything you need and staff are more than helpful and super friendly. Breakfast is amazing. And the beach is only 5 mins walk away.

Great location, but the hotel lacked warmth”
Excellent location, within five minutes walk to Copacabana. Breakfast (included) had a huge range of quality food, with fabulous fruit, a generous range of breads, cold cuts and even creme caramel.
The restaurant staff, housekeeping staff and bell boys were excellent but the reception staff were more reluctant - they did what they were asked, but not cheerfully. We booked a tour through the hotel, but later found that whilst we were charged R150 each, others on the coach from different hotels were charged R100 or R120. No-one likes to feel "ripped off". Incidentally, the tour to Petropolis was the worst organised tour I have taken in 45 years of travelling - we spent the first three hours going around Rio collecting people from other hotels, until the coach was full and the tour guide then stopped the bus to stand and smoke for 10 minutes until another passenger banged on the window. The room was comfortable but the bathroom needed maintenance.

Great location ”
Location, location, location
I stayed here during the World Cup. Consequently the room was extremely expensive - so it is a little hard to give a fair review as I am not sure what he pricing is normally.
In terms of the good points:
- the location is second to none a couple of blocks from Copacabana and in a safe enough area
- the room was clean - it was basic but no problems and the shower was fantastic (very powerful)
- free wifi
- helpful staff
No real gripes. The hotel is not particularly modern but was fine as a place to stay in a good location.
A brief visit and the hotel was a good base”
Location, relatively cheap, friendly staff
good location, only 2 blocks to get the cobacobana beach
This hotel room rate is reasonable , while rooms are clean (not big though). You can reach to copacabana beach in 3 minutes.
Clean and Tidy, close to beach, close to transport
stayed there for 5 nights. the hotel is clean and tidy and is in an excellent location, only a short stroll from the beach and metro.
Good location, low quality of room and breakfast”
Position close to Copacabana
Not service- minded attitude. Due to electric breakdown 15 min in the evening the AC and WiFi did not work all night and morning. The taste and coulour of the breakfast bacon was hopefully just during our visit. Though a varity of fresh fruit.
Fast check in and out
Our check in is fast as well on checking out, maybe there is no guest at that time. Room size is OK to fit four of us with that price I paid. Overall is OK but I think the hotel need to be maintained a bit more for the cleanliness.

Affordable hotel in a not-so-nice area”
Free WiFi, helpful staff
for a one day stopover in rio i was looking for a place near the beach at a not too high price, since i would not spend much time in the hotel anyway.
the hotel is located in copacabana a few blocks from the sea, which translates to being in a not-so-nice area at night and requires moving by taxi only. even during day the street is not overly attractive.
the hotel itself is so-so - it seems to be a 4* standard of 20 years ago. the room was worn out and the air conditioning working, but smelling a bit musky. on the plus side, the deluxe room hat enough space, a perfectly working shower and enough light.
the staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful. free wireless ist also a plus.
i would probably not stay again - not necessarily because the hotel was bad, but just because i would try finding something nicer.

Location +++ but facilities on the older side”
Location is great, staff is very attentive, good breakfast
All hotels in Rio are a little rundown, with older facilities, furnishing and this one is no exception.
Pricey if you compare to other cities, but I guess Ok for Rio...
The good points are:
- excellent staff, smart and attentive,
- perfect location, 150 meters from the sea,
- close to nightlife and restaurants,
- chill out, you're in Rio,
great location and service with a smile”
very close to cobacabana beach, the metro station and all sorts of bus routes
the manager helped arrange tours, gave me advice about finding a shopping market and helped me to get to the airport with a very short time frame.
3 blocks from copacobana to ipanema
it was a pleasant stay in real palace hotel. it's close to the copacobana beach which leads to ipanema and lebron. staff are very friendly and will do extra mile in their duties. food is good. room is lovely. free wifi is a plus.
Enjoyed our stay”
Free fast wifi, friendly staff
We stayed twice here a few days each time. The first trip we had a great room on the top floor. Thew pool is a little small but nice to cool down in. Fridge in room, WiFi, A/C and TV with a few English channels.
