4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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

Sofitel is supposed to be a luxury brand and may be the Rio de Janeiro is by local standars. If you are expecting international "luxury", you will be hugely disappointed. The front desk was unable to pull up my reservation due to upgrade to the club floor and had to get supervisor involved. The rooms on the 8th floor are... More

From 2005 through 2007, Sofitel Rio de Janeiro was my base in operations in South America. This is because, through their business center, highly competent staff, and a surrounding businesses, I could effectively administer my business from the other side of the world. Then, in 2008, when I purchased a home in Rio, I did not frequent the hotel with... More
