You may want to book early for the Arena; this popular hotel is fantastically located in the middle of Copacabana Beach and offers modern, contemporary accommodations at affordable rates. Designed with recycled wood, the eco-friendly hotel has also implemented sustainable practices to conserve water and reduce electricity consumption. The rooftop terrace with swimming pool offers spectacular views of the beach and Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado, a poolside bar, a sauna, and a small but adequate gym. The rooms are divided into two categories: apartments and suites. All luxury apartments have full beach views and are fitted with wood and marble. There is a business center and a cyber café as well as a restaurant on the ground floor. Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, and cafés are all within walking distance and Copacabana beach is just across the street.
