The hotel is excellent. Beautiful views on the bay (from your room or at least when on your breakfast). Very convenient on Copacabana beach and on short walking distance from Ipanema beach. I was very impressed by the service of the staff, the concierge will help you with almost every question and the bellboy did a great job for me... More

Personnel at Reception and Concierge are very helpful and ready to help in all your needs, I was specially surprised with the readiness to help me in... More

We have just returned from Rio de Janeiro and choose to stay four nights at the Sofitel. This was our first visit to the city and choose this hotel on location and recommendation.

The trouble with Rio de Janeiro is that the boom in Brazil's economy, combined with the rising interest in Rio as a tourist destination, means that prices are higher than in most other big cities including London, New York, and Paris. At the same time, workers are in demand, so employees do not stay in the same job for long,... More

Pros: - location is convenient in arpoador, inbetween copacabana and 5mn walk to ipanema - gorgeous views if you are lucky with the assigned room (paying extra for thr sea view is recommended if you dont want to end up with a seedy building front view) Cons: - facilities are decades old and have never been refurbished. For eg, gym... More

Very enjoyable. Nice hotel in a great location. Staff was attentive. Sweet view from the restaurant overlooking the bay and Copacabana Beach. Rooms are not as bad as soon of the reviews indicate. I look forward to returning.

This is a great hotel in the perfect location. Unfortunately the car service provided does not match the standard of the hotel. The drivers clearly don't want to do the job, are grumpy and will only take you as close to the destination as they want to which means that they don't have to go out of their way but... More

Visited the restaurant and what a view, excellent choice of food and drinks available from the menu. Staff very attentive and cost less than you would pay on. A London hotel and boy what a view of the beach and very special evening out!

The most beautiful location probably of the copacabana beach and a few steps away from ipanema. Right in the middle of the of the attractions. Hotels has all the services you may need including gym (not so big), sauna and swimming pool outdoor. Restaurant with french cousine but above all the reserved area on the beach.
