Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro: 108 reviews and 169 photos
There's only a few hotels in the world that are famous enough to become tourist attractions in their own right. Copacabana Palace Hotel is one of them as it started the Copacabana beach revolution in the 1920's when it opened it's doors in 1923. The building is a neoclassical gem by French architect Joseph Gire inspired by grand hotels like the Negresco in Nice and the Carlton in Cannes. Edith Piaf, Nat King Cole, Rock Hudson, De Gaulle, Eva Peron, Queen Elisabeth (and Charles and Diana), Walt Disney... the list of VIP's who have stayed here is endless. It was the setting for the Fred and Ginger's Flying down to Rio. Even books have been written about it. If you cannot afford to stay here, you can at least enjoy an afternoon tea by the pool, or maybe a meal at outstanding restaurant Cipriani.
