Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantis Copacabana Rio de Janeiro
Buen precio y situación
Nos alojamos aquí seis noches el pasado julio durante un viaje de 2 semanas a Brasil. El hotel nos gustó mucho, ya que cubrió muy bien todas nuestras necesidades - estaba limpio, cómodo, un personal agradable realmente cerca de Copacabana e Ipanema. El desayuno está incluido y es de gran calidad. Si quieres lujo de 5 estrellas entonces este hotel no es para ti, si simplemente quieres un lugar donde dormir y comer, entonces no puedes equivocarte- además ¡Hay una piscina en el tejado!
Great hotel at a Fabulous Price!
The location is perfect- easy access to Ipanema (2 blocks) and Copacabana beaches (3 blocks), and located in a safe residential area. The lobby is elegant and much nicer than I had expected for the price and the staff were exceptionally courteous and spoke some English.
The rooftop pool area was absolutely beatiful, with a view of Ipanema beach and the surrounding apartment buildings and the flavellas on the hill. Our room was on the 11th floor, right below the stairs to get to the pool. They are doing construction on the stairway, but that was fine. The room was quite large, with a sitting area and couch and table when you walk in, a large closet and safe, partially marble bathroom, hot water with good shower pressure, air conditioning, and another room with a large comfortable bed. The TV had some American TV stations, too.
The breakfast in the morning was a delicious spread of fresh fruit, eggs, meat, cheese, fruit juice, yogurt, cereal, etc. It was delicious! We paid $80 per night for the room and stayed 2 nights.
We arrived from the airport and took a taxi to the hotel ($35). We probably could have taken a bus, but the taxi was fine. We were very concerned about safety, after having read a lot about the crime in Rio. Fortunately, we didn't have any problems. After we took the bus to Corcovado (~30 min) for 2 Real per person, we used the buses to go everywhere after that. It was safe and we had no problems.
Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay and we would definitely stay here again! I highly recommend it!
The hotel is just OK for that price.
Be prepared for some problems. Rio is known of water shortages and on the last morning of our stay we experienced it. There was only cold water in showers for the whole day and for an hour there was no water at all. The only excuse we heard was: "please wait another 15 minutes" ;-)
Not a pleasant farewell from Rio but rather a typical way of handling such things in Brazil.
OK - but pretty basic - and check if the pool is open!
We stayed at the Atlantis Copacabana for 6 nights. After choosing this hotel for its location and the rooftop pool, we had mixed results on arrival: the location was great, much more peaceful and safe than Copacabana (nearest beach is Arpodar, then onto Ipanema); but unfortunately the pool was out of use. We didn't know this until our arrival, although as we had booked on the net with a 3rd party I don't think we would have been told in advance anyway.
After this initial disappointment, we resolved to enjoy our stay and really this hotel is great for the price and location. We spent much of our time in Ipanema and this hotel was ideal (only went to Copa once, in daylight, and it wasn't very exciting - Ipanema is much better and safer).
The first room we had was on the 1st floor and had a few ants (to be expected in this climate/ class of hotel) but we moved to the 7th floor after one night. Although this was a bit quieter (further up from the front door) there was still some street noise. I'm not sure we would have got a quiet hotel anywhere in Rio during the World Cup though! This 2nd room was great, air con worked fine, comfortable bed and spacious shower. Building work started at 8.30 each morning which did scupper any chance of a lie-in, as the bangs and crashes were fairly loud and constant. I think our floor (7th) might have been the highest in use, with 8/9/10th floors being renovated along with the pool on 11th.
Breakfast was plentiful, fresh fruit and breads mainly. Coffee was pretty awful though. Staff are helpful and mainly friendly and you can use the internet in the lobby for a small charge for the code (R10 for about an hour I think, but it can be used in small chunks).
Rio is an amazing place. The language barrier was tricky at times but this is part of the fun. Breathtaking scenery, a basic but comfortable hotel, all you need for a successful stay in the Marvellous City.
Great value, great location
Stayed for six nights last July on a 2 week trip to Brasil. Really liked the hotel as it suited our needs very well - clean, comfortable, pleasant staff and really close to Copacabana and Ipanema. Breakfast is included and of a high standard. If you want five star luxury then it's not for you but if you just want a place to sleep and eat then you can't go far wrong - plus there's a pool on the roof!
Great value,good location
We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights whilst on holiday in Rio. It's fantasic value. We paid £35 a night through a internet deal for a double room. The decor is a bit tired - it's definitely due a refurb - and you couldn't describe it as luxurious but the beds are comfortable, the showers are powerful and the breakfast includes lots of fresh fruit, yoghurt etc (though the coffee's not brilliant). On the whole the people working there are very friendly and helpful. There's a small rooftop pool with great views of the coast, where you can watch the sun go down whilst sipping caiprinihas. Incidentally, the caiprinihas we had at the hotel were the best we found in Rio. The hotel is in a great area (in Ipanema, just beyond Copacabana). The beach is only a 2 minute walk away. Rio has a number of good sushi restaurants. We would particularly recommend Tanaka San, on Rue Bolivar in Copacabana (it's just round the corner from the main coast road). Don't be put off by the slightly drab frontage. The sushi is delicious and fantastic value (a huge sushi and sashimi dish for two cost 55 Reals/about £8 a head).

I stayed in Atlantis Copacabana for the first & last week of my 6 week trip to brazil. I could not fault the place. The rooms are extremely clean & well maintained. Staff speak english & are helpful. There is a high standard of service. The breakfast which you can have delivered to your room is delicious. Also, the hotel is located a 5 minute walk from both copacabana & ipanema beach so it is perfect. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone travelling too Rio.
O melhor para o dinheiro
This trip was my fifth visit to Rio and each time I have stayed with my friends at this hotel. The views of the bay from my room window and from the top of the hotel are astounding, yes breathtaking. It also affords you great views of Copacabana and Ipanema (both of which are only a five minute walk to the beach.
The residential environs give the traveler a true taste of the daily life of the Cariocas. Taverns and stores and school kids and shops and salons and restaurants surround you; watched over by the eleven or twelve story apartment buildings whose granite exteriors reveal the ageless wonder of the Cidade Maravilhosa. I walked for hours around the streets as far as the mountains which hold the Favelas.
People are friendly; as the streets seem always to be populated densely during the daytime hours.
The best for last:
The hotel staff is excelent. The ladies and gentlemen are all very professional and there is sure to be at least a couple that speak any language that may be spoken. Over the past several years, they have always maintained a superior level of service and congeniality.
Apartments are nice to live in. The hotel is my preferred place to reside while I'm in Rio for my two week semi annual visits. Security, convenience, and comfort are at the top of my list.
Fui Maravilhosa (was marvelous)!
I stay here on my first trip to Rio. Having travelled internationally, I knew not to expect double beds (there were singles, as in most foreign countries) and standard service. Location was the most important factor here. It's steps away from Copacabana beach, yet still far enough away that noise isnt a factor. Up on the roof is the magnificent Christ statue looking down at you as you sun yourself and cool out in the water. The surrounding mountains were the attention getters and little else.
The hotel's wonderful staff, especially Sebastiao were courteous when they heard even a slight bit of Portugues spoken and extremely helpful. Since returning to Rio and making it a second home, I've secured an apartment, but will continue to send first timers to this hotel for a pleasant experience. After all, you're in Rio for Rio, not for the hotel. This one will provide a backdrop for your trip so that you'll not remember anything horrible about your hotel adventure, rather, all the wonderful things that make up Brasil.
It's inexpensive. It's close enough to the water. You'll feel like a local walking along the cobblestone streets and you'll see how Cariocas really live.

Really hot!! Gone straight to hotel, 12midnight. Lovely view of ipanema beach from our room on 11th floor.
This morning we ate the buffet again and it was great. This time we didn't over eat to much so we could eat lunch before our tour started at 14:00. We booked a favela tour. Favela's are the poor housing areas that used and run by big drug dealers.

It was nice just to be able to wake up when we wanted with no organized plans for the day. We went for breakfast and filled right up again. They had really nice fruit. Today we would hire bikes and ride around exploring. Rio has good bike paths separated from the road.

Today I wanted to go to Inpanema beach, I knew it was close by. For breakfast there was a huge buffet in the hotel with cereals, eggs, fruit and bebidas, drinks. Both of us ate to much food so after breakfast we had a siesta and relaxed for a while.
