Belmond Copacabana Palace - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Location

The Copacabana Palace is superbly located: it faces the famous Copacabana Beach and yet is only minutes from the centre of Rio. The hotel is located eight miles from the domestic airport, Santos Dumont, and 20 miles from Rio de Janeiro's international airport, Tom Jobim.

The Copacabana Palace is the jewel of the Belmond collection in the southern hemisphere and, according to the Official Hotel Guide, is the best luxury hotel in Latin America.


Transfers

The Copacabana Palace has introduced its own exclusive Lincoln Town Car Service, a service designed with the comfort and safety of the hotel's guests in mind. To operate the service, the hotel has invested in two black Lincoln town cars, one of the world's most popular town cars with politicians and diplomats, as well as a team of bilingual chauffeurs who are on call 24 hours a day.

Guests wishing to use the service should make their reservation directly with the Copacabana Palace as the service is wholly owned and operated by the hotel.
