What a fabulous hotel! We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary on our way to Peru. The welcome was the best we have ever received anywhere in the world. When checking in we said it was our anniversary, 5 minutes later in our room and we were sent complimentary champagne and chocolates! Our room had a sea view and... More

We stayed at the Sofitel at the beginning of November as part of a travel group which had travelled for the previous 3 weeks all over South America. The location was very good and so on arrival we all had high expectations, these were dashed on the first night as many of us, situated in the south wing, woke to... More

I have stayed multiple times throughout 2014 for business purposes. The hotel overall has very good facilities, offering everything that you would need for a business traveler (good restaurant, well equipped gym, quick check-in and check-out, etc.). Additionally, its location is pretty convenient for business travelers doing business in the Copacabana, Ipanema and Botafogo areas. The big issue here is... More

I didn't associate Sofitel with luxury before this visit - but this is a great hotel. Very comfortable rooms, great food, excellent service. Very good breakfast - lots of choice and high quality. With a view of the ocean and the pool from my room, I couldn't ask for more! The hotel is right by the beach. As with rest... More

The hotel is on one end of Copacabana beach. The views are absolutely stunning. There are a few restaurants within the hotel. Breakfast is great, and the same restaurant is open in the evening. We had seafood, which I would thoroughly recommend. The hotel could probably do with some investment, it's a little dated, but it seems to be a... More

Sofitel is well located at the Copacabana beach in Rio. Service is excellent. My room was very good but slightly below what I expected for this standard of the hotel. Breakfast is very good, but they need to learn how to prepare wafles.

Food is typically very good as well. But on this last trip when I went to take a shower, the bathroom was old, bathtub was pocked and ugly, but what's... More

I had a fantastic experience in Sofitel. The staff was very friendly, we've got a room with a stunning view, really beautiful and we could sleep hearing the sound of the waves, extremely romantic. The breakfast is delicious, very complete. I really recommend this hotel, one of the best hotel I've been in Rio.

It is not easy to find XXI. century quality, world-class hotels in Rio, but Sofitel Copacabana still has no excuses for not renovating I presume for decades Pros: - The location is excellent, at the corner of Copacabana and Ipanema, superb walks, excellent view from the restaurant - The food is pretty good - The conference facilities are totally acceptable...
