We stayed at the Sofitel Rio in 2009 and came back because we had such a fantastic time. Mmmmm bad decision! Booked beach view room - got a part sea view room with a view of a scaffolding structure just outside the hotel. Room change was handled very professionally and the new room had the view we booked but is... More

Located between Copacabana and Ipanema, this is a very expensive but reasonably luxurious hotel. Sadly, one has to pay a small fortune for decent accommodation in Rio. Also, all hotels are very old. We had booked and pre-paid an executive-floor room which thankfully has been refurbished. Since our credit cards were stolen in Buenos Aires, we were unable to pay... More

I was there for a conference with about 150 others. The hotel was hosting the conference. The service was in stark contrast to the Miramar Windsor up the road where I had stayed for 2 days prior. Miramar couldn't do enough for you: Sofitel couldn't care less about you. The good: The room was an excellent size with superb views... More

This hotel is rated 5* and located on Copacabana Beach in Rio. Brazil 5* means 4* in Europe. The location is very good but the hotel is a typical impersonal business hotel. Expensive by European standards €250 for B&B. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. However the range of English language TV programmes is very limited. Bring a good book.... More

I have stayed at Sofitel Rio several times in the last 3 years. This time, I was disappointed and I cannot give it again a 5 rating. First, the reception lady that checked us in was not warm at all in her welcome - it was all very transactional, and even our Gold status was acknowledged by a "oh, and... More

The hotel had a great location on the south end of Copacabana beach and within a ten minute walk to Ipanema beach. The views from the Atlantis restaurant were amazing. The breakfast selection was very good with a wide selection of choices to choose from. The size of the room and the bathroom were much larger than we expected and... More

Awesome hotel in Copacabana. After visiting Rio for the first time, i'd recommend that you chose your hotel wisely. There aren't too many nice hotels throughout the city and staying along the beachfront definitely left a more memorable impression of the city (as we also stayed in La Pa - which was not a nice area at all). The hotel... More

Views from the breakfast area over Rio are stunning, the localization is fantastic and service very professional. However, the hotel is old and you feel it + it is overpriced compared to other quality hotels
