What a brilliant hotel. Have stayed at a number of hotels in Rio in the past but this was far and away the best. Would stay here every single time going forward. I recommend to anyone looking to go to Rio

Best view ever. Surrounding area is a little tough but you should be fine if you are not flashing phones or jewelry.

The hotel is incredibly beautiful. The rooms and the roof make full use of the stretch of copacabana it faces. The restaurant is nice and included breakfast more generous than expected. My only complaint was not receiving the room upgrade upon checkin despite the room type showing available. But we loved the room we booked.

I wish they had an Emiliano in every city!
the management and staff has an amazing personal touch, I can’t be more satisfied from a hote experience, been coming here for years and it is still the best hotel I ever stayed at in Rio. Yes beats Fasano by a margin

Exceptional services. We originally booked our stay for 3 days and extend to a week we have returned 3 weeks later for one night. I was unwell and through their amazing concierge services i got a doctor visit booked in 2 hours and the reception handled the medication to be collected from the pharmacy and sent to my room in less than an hour. Will definitely recommend a stay at this beautiful luxury boutique hotel. It has everything that you need for a perfect stay: great service, perfect location, amazing facilities and a team that will go above and beyond to help! Thank you Emiliano team!!

8/10 Very good

We got to the hotel super early they let us clean ourselves up in the spa area before our room was ready and they checked us in at 10a which was great since we had such a long flight from the US. Room was amazing, view was amazing, food (breakfast and room service) was amazing, staff was hospitable for the most part. The pool is small (and heated!) but great views over looking the beach. It’s located at the quieter end of the beach, they offer complementary umbrellas and chairs and the beach attendant was super cool he had sunscreen and water for us as well. The toilets in the room are heated (which I definitely think is worth mentioning). The shower was roomy and powerful. Overall it was great. The only issue I had was the comforter and towels had stains on them, which was off putting. I knew they were washed and clean, but I still didn’t like that. Overall, I still think it’s the best hotel on the strip and I recommend it because you won’t find anything better.

4/10 Fair

The hotel does not honour the Expedia VIP Access package. When I arrived, they would not upgrade to the next level, even though they were still selling rooms in the next category. They made up excuses, and tried to charge me for the upgrade, so eventually I ended up staying in the same category I booked. The late check-out which was also part of the Expedia offer, also never happened. The reception staff are arrogant and not welcoming at all. Most of them won’t even look at you when you come to the desk. They talk to you while looking at the PC screen. Everyone makes you feel that you should be grateful that you are allowed to stay at the Emiliano. One of the show pieces of the hotel is the infinity pool on the top floor. Unfortunately when I arrived it was covered with scaffolding. This was later replaced with another structure, which covered the entire area with a transparent plastic roof. If you ever wondered how it feels to be baked, then please spend some time on the roof of the Emiliano Hotel. None of the construction work was of course mentioned anywhere on the Expedia website. You will only find out when you get there. This hotel is made for clients who want to be seen and show off, who don’t care about practicalities and hospitality. You can get some great Instagram pictures out of the Emiliano, but it does not reflect the quality of the stay. My suggestion, stay somewhere else. There are better and more friendly 5 star hotels in Rio.
