Merlin Copacabana Hotel features a rooftop terrace and puts you within a 10-minute drive of Museum of Modern Art. The restaurant is perfect for a bite to eat, and you can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge or visit the sauna for a relaxing end to the day. An outdoor pool and a poolside bar are other highlights, and rooms offer 24-hour room service and LCD TVs.
Pros: This hotel is overpriced for the offering. I got a better hotel, closer to the beach, with more friendly staff and upgraded rooms for 2/3 the price. The rooms are old and mine smelled smokey.
Pros: Nice pool on the roof.
Cons: The street where it is located is kind of dark at night.
