To put this in perspective, I am a Platinum Le Club Accor member and have recently stayed at the Sofitel Sukhumvit Bangkok(great service), the Sofitel Bogota, Columbia and in between, the Belmond hotels in Lima and Cusco, Peru which were brilliant The Sofitel Copacabana failed on numerous levels Check-in was abrupt and un-friendly and had failed to acknowledge my request...

Stayed here for one night at the end of our holiday Comfortable room had small balcony with great view of Copacabana beach. Unfortunately we weren't able to try the gourmet restaurant "Le Pre Catalan" as it's not open on Sundays. However the main hotel restaurant, the Atlantis, was decent quality and there was an excellent spread for breakfast. Service was... More

The room was very stylishly decorated with dark wood panelling and the balcony overlooking Copacabana beach was a real bonus. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is excellent. Breakfast (buffet) was above average with lots of fresh bread and a good mixture of items to choose from. We had dinner at the more casual dining restaurant in the evening... More

I can assure you, Sofitel, Rio De Janeiro, Copacabana is NOT 5 star quality. Upon arrival, my room had the foulest odor of sewer. It took the staff a good 30 minutes to find me a new room. The hallways all smell of mold. Arriving at my newly assigned room, the smell of mold is so strong it caused a... More

Great hotel with excellent facilities, helpful staff and reliable wifi. I paid a little extra for an ocean view and ended up with a room on the 7th floor with a postcard view of the beach. Room was very clean and everything worked properly. No dampness (keep your patio door closed-you're on the ocean!) nor funky odors. Pools were clean... More

Stayed here for 7 nights. The rooms were big, bed was comfy and the views overlooking the beach was just magnificent! The staff was wonderful, warm and professional. I also loved the service by the beach exclusively for the hotel guests. The concierge suggested great restaurants and they made sure that we get back safe from our hotel. This hotel... More

My wife and I stayed at the Copacabana Sofitel for three nights, following a cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro. Regent Cruises, who arranged the reservation described the Sofitel as a luxury hotel. Upon arrival at around 10:00 am, we discovered that we could not have access to our room until 3:00 p.m. The tour guide warned about... More

The Sofitel is uniquely located between Copacabana and Ipanema. The view from the terrace is absolutely great. Staff is very helpful and friendly, but also fairly slow. The food was ok but with little fantasy. The standard room that I stayed in for 5 nights was a disappointment. The room was damp, smelly and moist. The air conditioning was loud.... More

The positives for this hotel are obvious - location is amazing, with fantastic views of the beach and city. Oh and the massage was really good in the Fitness Centre. Apart from these elements my, 6 night business trip stay was extremely disappointing. The hotel infrastructure is falling apart. Dripping and noisy AC in my room, no hot water for... More
