Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, Rio de Janeiro

“A piece of Old World elegance amid the allure — and menace — of Copacabana Beach, the Palace, with 232 rooms, completed an extensive renovation late 2012. It promotes itself as a modern property that still conjures the glamour of the days when Marlene Dietrich and Orson Welles were guests.”

“It’s a high-volume beach hotel two short blocks from Leme, the least-known beach of the Zona Sul. But the view from its rooftop pool rivals anything the five-stars have, and its complimentary breakfasts are well-stocked. Rooms are distinctly modest.”
