We booked this hotel by reading the reviews and looking at the photos on the Hotels website. On arrival at the hotel we were directed up to the 8th floor Club Milllinseme for check in for our "club room". We were checked in early which was nice but given room 740 which was a corner room with a difficult layout,no... More

We had 9 nights at this hotel at the beginning and end of our trip to South America.The hotel has a lovely location.But if you're planning on a good rest to get over your jet lag, or counting on a peaceful holiday forget it. At about midnight daily a disco under the hotel emits a loud pulsating throb and thumping... More

First off, our room had an amazing sweeping view of Copacabana beach. It must be best situation of any hotel in Copacabana - both for the view and easy walk to Ipanema. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a Luxury Room which was OK but we had a few irritations during our stay. We were disturbed during the day... More

I've been a really loyal visitor to this hotel over the last 3 years. As a resident of São Paulo and regular visitor to Rio, it became a bit of a second home. But over the last 12-18 months there has been a really significant decline in terms of service and the quality and cleanliness of rooms. The receptionists have... More

Everyone has a different set of priorities when it comes to travel accommodations. it is rare to find a hotel that has everything. In Rio de Janeiro, one may prefer to be close to a certain beach, a certain part of town, close to one of the airports or far away from traffic and noise. For me, Sofitel Rio Copacabana... More

Great Service. Employees are fantastic. Rooms are fine but not great. Showers need to be repaired end adjusted. Breakfast people very cordial. Manager does a great job. Again, check your showers. Overall experience very nice.

Not the best Sofitel I have been to, however, because the hotel is old and a bit run down, needs renovation. Also pool is not ideal: one is small close to restaurant and the other is bigger, but not deep at all, and surrounded by buildings. One nice point: it is on the end of Copacabana making access to Ipanema... More

We stayed at the Sofitel with 4 adults - 2 rooms - over New Years Eve. Overall the experience was ok, however heavily overpriced even considering the season. Normally i like smaller, boutique hotels, but being on the road with two Moms i chose the hotel for the location knowing that Rio gets crazy that night. The first annoyance happened... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
