Fodor's Expert Review Porto Bay Rio Internacional

Av. Atlântica 1500, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 22021–000, Brazil Fodor's Choice

One of the stars of Copacabana's midrange hotels, this beachfront property combines beautiful rooms—all have balconies with sea views—with a great rooftop pool and charming, attentive staff. The distinctive black- and red-fronted hotel is Swiss-owned, and the tidy and modern Scandinavian design (aka crisp white decor) is one of its best assets, as are the views across the bay and of the Corcovado and the Christ statue.
