I have been staying at this hotel for 7 days out of a 10 day stay. The location on the end of Copacabana is good. However, the hotel is old, tired, badly maintained, service is horrific (with few exceptions). The glass shower door shattered on a colleague of mine whom was injured. The elevators stop working indiscrimanantly, and you can... More

Fantastic hotel, with perfect location. They have a great beach service on Copacabana! We stayed in a large suite, with fab views of the Copacabana! The breakfast is very nice and the staff is excellent!

Expensive but worth it! The hotel is centrally located and directly on the beach. Directly on the water (oceanfront). Beautiful view of Sugar loaf mountain from your balcony in the background if you purchase a suite. Service is exceptional and the massage therapist OMG ( I don't know her name but she's an middle aged Afro Brazilians women.. very dark... More

just ok. Expensive and Old hotel. Rooms were renovated but you could still tell their age. Rooms are very small so absolutely not suitable for a family with kids. Breakfast is poor like a 2-3* hotel Brazilian hotel breakfast (thanks to that we found some really nice place for breakfast. See my other reviews) Generally speaking - for next trip... More

We arrived very early in the morning after a long loooonnnngggg flight. As we entered were a bit disappointed to see a very old and tired looking lobby. The staff at the reception did not speak great english and a minor confusion between the hotel and the travel agent (most likely the fault of my travel agent) caused a little... More

We booked a Club Millesime Suite and got upgraded to a Prestige Suite overlooking the whole of Copacabana Beach - a wow and bucket list item ticked. First class service, Fabulous Club Team, especially Natalia, Ivan, Augusto and Valindria who made our stay very special. Lovely touches from the soap choices, pillow menu and club services. We ate at both... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for a three-day weekend. The property is beautiful. The common spaces are nicely decorated. Two pools on the second floor with a large lounge and restaurant area would be a nice way to spend a day away from the beach. It also has a huge gym available at no additional cost. The Front Desk Staff,... More

Stayed at the Sofitel for 4 nights while in Rio. Great service, good food, great views in the heart of Copacabana beach. Their concierge was very helpful and the gym was also very nice! Lots of good restaurants just walking distance from the hotel.
