It has been my pleasure to stay at such a fine hotel such as the Sofitel Copacabana. I have been traveling for the last thirty years for work and pleasure with almost 2 million air miles logged and so many hotel stays that I cannot (or want to) remember. Up until five years ago, I had always been a Marriott... More

The hotel is in a very shabby state and urgently needs a renovation. With the exception of the concierge (who is fantastic) the service is lousy. At none of my breakfasts did I get the drinks that I had ordered, staff only speak Portuguese (and I tried all the other 7 languages that I speak, including English, Spanish and French).... More

With its very pleasant location, the kindness, warmness and professionalism of its staff you could enjoy easily the Carioca way of life. Do not hesitate to book a room with the ocean view and to walk around ipanema as well as Copacabana before leaving even if you're dealing with a professional trip.

If you want to stay at a first class hotel, with excellent service and a spectacular view over Copacabana Beach then Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana is the right place. Particularly if you spoil yourself with a room on the Club Floor. The staff is friendly and efficient, and you can spend your free time at one of the two... More

I´ve written occasionally about Sofitel, and will keep doing so until some real actions are taken. The hotel is nice, Sofitel standard, and well located for tourism, in front of Copacabana beach (not do nice beach, but perfect for a long stroll in the sidewalk along it) and a few blocks from Arpoador and Ipanema, much better if you want...

After many years using Novotel Santos Dumont when in Rio for business, I decided to try a new one , and chose Sofitel due to their service and experience , the location for me it's a good and bad point , good to go running in the morning on the beach, bad because it's...

One week before arriving to Sofitel Copacabana I had the pleasure to stay at Sofitel in Manila. My message to Management of Rio: guys...improve your standards. To my experience in Rio: - I arranged hotel pickup from the airport. Car was lousy, cost expensive and on top I had to pay on spot instead of being able to charge to... More

The service in the Sofitel is good - for Brazilian standards excellent - but be prepared to pay the prices. Car from the airport 300 BR, visit to Christ the redeemed 300 BR, early check in 300 BR etc. The concierge service is superb and will get you anything you need. I have reviewed the gourmet restaurant Le Pre Catalan... More

Sofitel is known for nice rooms and good service. Its marketing literature uses the words elegant and luxurious. The Sofitel in Rio is not representative of the Sofitel chain. The rooms are run down. Bathtubs chipped and rusted. Rooms not soundproof. We were in a "superior" room. If it was superior would hate to see a room that was not.... More
