Located in copacabana, in front of the beach, close to many restaurants including the amazing Confeitaria Colombo. However, the room is small, the shower was linking and the service is not that good. Considering the high price and the number of stars, should be an incredible experience. And it wasn't. I felt disappointed.

We stayed for three nights in early March in a suite on their Club Millessime floor with breath-taking sweeping views of the Copacabana. The hotel (esp. lobby and lifts) were a bit tired but the overall service and views more than made up for this. The staff were really helpful and they do provide a French style of service. Just...

We stayed for four nights at the Sofitel in a junior suite. It's in a great location on Copacabana beach, and the hotel supplies free chairs and towels and umbrellas on a small section of the beach for guests, which is great. The hotel feels a little dated, but nice just the same. The wifi is extremely spotty and slow,... More

The staff and service have been wonderful from the start, the checkin was quick and easy, the restaurant staff helpful and attentive, and the cleaner always gave us extra chocolates. The room service menu was better than the Atlantis restaurant menu. The views over Copacabana beach are better than anywhere else in Rio. Worth the extra money. An all round... More

I stayed at the Sofitel during Carnival and absolutely loved it. The room was great, loved the location - end of Copacabana right where it meets Ipanema. The view was lovely, the breakfast food delicious (wasn't crazy about dinner there). We didn't go to the pool because when in Copacabana, I go to Copacabana beach. The pool was on the... More

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times while on business in Rio. I normally stay on the business floor which is worth doing for the extra money. Rooms are lovely and the staff are helpful and friendly. I particularly like the bar on the business floor which has great views and is very nice for breakfast.

The Sofitel offers great service in what has to be the best location in Rio de Janeiro. It is located right in the middle between Ipanema and Copacabana beach. The views from the restaurant, bars and pools are amazing. Try to get an ocean view room with a sweeping view of Copacabana and Pan de Azucar. The hotel is very... More
