I had visited this iconic rio de Janeiro landmark before Belmond took it over, and it felt a bit tired and shopworn. I returned in January to find this 1920s art nouveau gem restored to its original luster, with rooms that are perfectly appointed in Brazilian Deco style and two of the best restaurants in Rio, the classic Hotel Cipriani, and the sister to the Michelin-starred Sao Paolo restaurant, Mee. An oasis in the frenetic craziness of Rio, it's a true gem.

Room Tip: The lower floors are preferable, at the center of the hotel. They have higher ceilings and great views of Copacabana Beach.

It is amazing to be informed that your "revisit" was awesome and full of impressive feedbacks! You higlighted our classic decor and ambience as well as two of our famous restaurants: Cipriani and MEE. And, at the end, I totally agree that "Copa" is a real place to relax and enjoy!

I stayed at the hotel several times but always at the main building.
I was always curious about the Annex building with large balcony.

This trip, the ocean front suite was not available on the main building so we booked
the annex building for the first time.

CHECKING - IN , It was unusual that I had to wait 18 mins standing in line with only 2 counters working. There was no water or welcome refreshment by the counter. However, the room was ready to check in by 12:00 PM pretty good for today’s standard in the Brazilian 5 Stars hotels.

THE SUITE - The suite was much older than I expected but the size of this suite was indeed, very large.

The bathroom was also very large with a separate shower and large soaking tub.
But it was old and need looking after. There was a small pantry in the room probably convenient for a longer stay.
The suite also has a large balcony with nice ocean view.

But before I can complain, a welcome house brand ( Copacabana Palce) sparkling wine and chocolate arrived..awww

The service is impeccable as always. The staff were wonderful, knowledgeable, helpful and the longer they had worked there , the better, kinder, and efficient they are.

The advantage of this building is that it’s right on top of their Spa and hair salon as well as their famous French Restaurant. Going down to the Spa was convenient.

Also it’s a little way back from the beach and the main road so it’s quieter and more secluded.

The hotel recently renovated their main restaurant Pergola very beautifully since I last visited Rio: Beautiful during the day, elegant and romantic at night. Well done!

Verdict : I certainly recomend this iconic hotel but I still prefer the main building.
I feel very safe at this hotel. No issues at all. Rio is just beautiful, rain or shine!

Room Tip: MAIN BUILDING suite with ocean view is worth it. Avoid city view. Always ask if the room has been recently renovated.

Dear Sir,
Whenever we receive a testimony, we are very grateful. Yours was no different. It contains expressions and compliments that indicate that we correspond to your expectation. The preferences for the main building and annex really vary, as already exposed in the various reviews. I apologize for any inconvenience during your experience.
I hope you keep coming!
All the best,

A superb room, with a view to the pool and sea. Everything and everyone are for you to spend your time.
I’ve never been in a pool like this: big, beautiful people, good drinks, food...
Will comeback again.

Romantic break for 2 (kids at home!)

Location: across the road from Copacabana Beach. Easy access to metro and taxis. Set in a real part of Rio you can enjoy the atmosphere/vibe of the area. You can also forget the outside while enjoying the luxury of the hotel.

Breakfast: outstanding. Fresh selection of fruits. My highlights fresh sweet mango; cheese balls; water melon juice; eggs cooked to order. Served outside or inside the Pergula restaurant

Meals; ate at Mee which is their Michelin star pan Asian restaurant. Lovely spicey food and great staff. Indoor dining with air con (you will need a shawl). Pergula perfect setting overlooking the pool.

Room: we stayed in the newly refurbished wing overlooking the pool and sea. Stunning accommodation with walk in wardrobe, nespresso machine and separate seating area,

Overall service was fantastic, atmosphere was cool and stay was memorable. Would love to return. Note Kids around but not many

Tips for Rio trip:
Christ Redeemer- do early at 8am before crowds. 5 mins walk from hotel is Praia da lido to catch a tourist bus 60 Brazil dollars each (x2 bus trips with return back to base).
Sugar loaf mountain is 5 mins drive away
Recommend aprazivel and olympe restaurant for dinner
Beware thieves! Husband left unattended havianna flip flops on Ipanema beach while swimming and they got stolen! Nb hotel has couple of sunbeds on beach (rarely used)
Ice cream parlour outside door
Taxi to airport 80-100 Brazil reals
Def visit the botanical gardens!
Leblon shopping good for Brazilian brands and American brands

Stayed: April 2018, travelled as a couple

Thank you very much and I do hope that you return.
