The hotel has a wonderful location on copacabana beach. Rooms are comfortably furnished. There is a good onsite restaurant and two pools (although one suffered a lot from traffic and construction noise). Super beach service is a real plus. Staff mostly very friendly and helpful. However, there is a very loud disco bar in the same block as at least... More

This Sofitel comes very close to meeting the high standard of its international peers in the Sofitel chain. Location - at the very end of Copacabana Beach - views are unparalleled and very convenient to catch passing taxi's (although the hotel does have a car service which I found very useful). Staff: Usual high standard of service, friendliness and guest-orientated... More

Property was very nice....I like Sofitel properties and this one didn't fail....Didn't realize until I got to the hotel that I booked a room without ocean-view....Upon checking in- was given unnecessary angst by the attendee....first she couldn't find my reservation, then when she did - it seemed suspect to her because it was made a few hours ago (was originally...

4 of us arrived at the hotel after a 14 hour flight. I had out in multiple requests for an "early check in" nearly a month in advance and I found myself arguing with the hotel supervisor Marina about the hotel wanting to charge each one of us over 300R for this early check in. She stated that although the... More

Clean hotel with well sized rooms. The view is a hit or miss depending on which side of the hotel you stay in. Breakfast was awesome as were the gym and pool facilities. The hotel location is fantastic with everything around within a walking distance. The hotel lobby looks a bit dated and the reception staff can offer hotel guests... More

I have been in this hotel for the second time and is very clear that continue to be one of the best choices for luxury hotel in Rio de Janeiro. The price is too high when compared to similar ones in São Paulo or even in United States, but as Rio is a city surrounded by the “surreal” prices, you... More

The hotel lobby area is stunning and every bit like a 5 star hotel, and same goes for the service. However, when you get to the hotel room (which we had a full ocean view) it is dark and tiny. I imagine it like as if it was a cruise ship room. You feel depressed sitting in there in the... More

If you are looking for the most amazing view of copacana, wonderfall breakfast , confortable beds, and a top service, then Sofitel is the right place!! ... If possible use the Millesime Club, and you will feel yourself like VIP.
