    Every experience I've had at a Sofitel has been top notch until I stayed at this one. This is NOT a 5 star hotel by any means!!! Our room smelt like mold and had mold all over the shower ceiling. We were provided used body lotion and shampoo. Room service never refilled our bathroom stock. They also didn’t show up... More

We got there at 9am and no rooms were ready but the staff were so sweet taking care of our things and offering us water and pointing things out on the map.

    A great location - right on the beach and the breakfast area around the pool has a great view. That's about as good as it gets. The rest of the hotel is dark and tired as are the rooms. Given the quality of the rooms - this really is only a 3 star hotel. Service was fine although breakfast is... More

    Booked into the Sofitel after coming off an 12 day tour of Brazil and Argentina where we stayed in 2 to 3 star hotels. We wanted a little upgrade for a few days before moving into an apartment in Ipanema. The Sofitel did what we wanted it do and we had a great view of Copacabana beach. The rooms were... More

    Stayed for 3 nights very comfy hotel, great staff and excellent breakfast to start your day. Clean and comfortable rooms. Close to the beach, and a short walk to Ipanema Beach, there's a great artist market just off Ipanema beach to worth a visit.

    The hotel is ideally located on the corner of Copacabana Beach, pretty close to Ipanema Beach. At check-in, we are very warmly received. The room has view on copacabana beach and is comfortable. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is provided from 06:00 to 10:30, is very good and varied

    You get everything you expect from a Sofitel hotel plus an amazing view of Copacabana. The hotel is luxurious with comfortable rooms and great breakfast buffet out on the terrace deck. The hotel also have some good resturants that is worth visiting.

    Hotel was as you would expect for an expensive 5 star but it lacked personality. Staff were good and efficient but didn't really exude warmth. Location is good for going to Ipanema and bottom of Copacabana. Metro station 10 mins walk away into town. If offered a choice don't opt for rooms on first floor, although location looks great there... More
