Fodor's Expert Review Marta's Rio Guesthouse

Rua Francisco Sá 5, at the corner of Av. Atlântica, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 25953–010, Brazil Fodor's Choice

Offering a personal touch that you won't find at Copacabana's larger hotels, this hidden inn—set on the top floor of a normal residential building—is close to Ipanema and enjoys sweeping views across Copacabana Beach and out to Sugarloaf Mountain. A winding staircase leads from a lavish dining room to an upper floor with a huge balcony—the perfect place for evening drinks while soaking up that jaw-dropping view—and rooms are elegant and simply but stylishly appointed, with comfortable beds.
