This is by no means an awful hotel. But for the prices charged, as a luxury hotel it falls a bit too short. The room (luxury room with sea view) was disappointing and worn. Rusty showerhead, paint streaks on ceiling, front door wouldn't close properly without slamming, nicks on furniture. Room had a great view of Copacabana looking towards Sugarloaf.... More

Service in general was disappointing. Employees at front desk were just not nice / friendly. The first room I was given had a terrible smell. Terrible view of a construction site (across the street). The AC wasn't working properly. The toilet base was licking water during the night.. Second room was on a higher floor. Same bad smell. Same terrible... More

Stayed there 5nights in Feb 2015. This a nice hotel with all amenities, very well located at the end of Copacabana. Had a room with a great view on the whole beach and sugar loaf. The rooms show that they have not been renovated for quite while, but we did not spend too much time inside... Breakfast buffet was ok... More

The hotel staff are striving to maintain good standards of service in a hotel that is in need of some refurbishment, in a city with a reputation for security issues, yet filled with exciting possibilities. In this sense the team at Sofitel Rio exceeded our expectations and put right what the hotel company needed to address when we first arrived,... More

We had a wonderful two night stay, with outstanding customer service. We stayed at the Milesime Club, where we were given the highest level of attention and really valuable amenities. The hotel was very clean, well located and the breakfast was very surprising in quality.

We were in suite 620 for 4 nights for Carnaval with an unbeatable view along Copacabana Beach and our friends were in suite 601 with a similar great view. We all found the hotel excellent. It is easy to tell by the architecture that the hotel has possibly been there since the mid 60's or early 70's, but my oh... More

From the moment you step in the hotel to the service is great, starting the doorman, from desk and the rest of the people. Once you go to the pool the staff is very friendly and helpful. In the Atlantins restaurant despite it was very busy the people was willing to help, food was good and the variety as well.
