The glamorous Copacabana Palace is pre-eminent among the best hotels in Rio de Janiero.
Since its Art Deco doors swung open in 1923, it has been welcoming the rich and famous: from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the Rolling Stones and Nelson Mandela. Superbly positioned overlooking Copacabana Beach, this is the best place to stay in Rio. Soak up the sun in the magnificent pool or join Brazil's style setters at the adjacent Bar do Copa. And don't miss the hotel's top restaurants, whether for great local dishes or fine Italian dining at the Hotel Cipriani Restaurant.
