“A piece of Old World elegance amid the allure — and menace — of Copacabana Beach, the Palace, with 232 rooms, completed an extensive renovation late 2012. It promotes itself as a modern property that still conjures the glamour of the days when Marlene Dietrich and Orson Welles were guests.”

CNN review:

“Like a glistening casino in Monte Carlo, the massive white edifice of the Copacabana Palace looms above the beach strip of Avenida Atlantica. The most storied hotel in Rio, the Copacabana opened its doors in 1923 as a roost for dignitaries and diplomats. This best of Rio hotel still brings in the royals and their modern counterparts — rock stars.”

“Rio’s most famous hotel has hosted heads of state, rock stars and other prominent personalities – Queen Elizabeth once stayed here, as did the Rolling Stones. The dazzling white facade dates from the 1920s, when it became a symbol of the city.”

Fodors review:

“Built in 1923 for the visiting king of Belgium and inspired by Nice’s Negresco and Cannes’s Carlton, Copacabana Palace was the first luxury hotel in South America, and it’s still one of the top hotels on the continent.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Rio De Janeiro.

“The Palace may have been lording it over Copacabana for nearly a century, but it is a rare example of how to grow old gracefully in this anything-goes beach neighbourhood. From its stunning pool and excellent restaurants to the rooftop tennis court, everything about the hotel has been designed with the guest in mind.”

Expert reviews
CNN review:

“It’s a high-volume beach hotel two short blocks from Leme, the least-known beach of the Zona Sul. But the view from its rooftop pool rivals anything the five-stars have, and its complimentary breakfasts are well-stocked. Rooms are distinctly modest.”
