I stayed at the Sofitel for a big convention. The hotel is in a prime spot, with best access to both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. The views from the hotel of Copacabana are stunning. Although an older property, hotel is very well maintained, super clean and the service is just excellent. The staff are very friendly all around. Because of... More

Very clean, staff helpful and multilingual, great location - good value for money after all. Spent a week there last August. The only downside is the breakfast - it's a bit pricy but it's not included in the price and you can easily skip it if you wish. The restaurant is great for dining, though.

We decided to get an upgraded room with a view of Copa! This upgrade made it a truly unforgettable experience for me. Everyone in the hotel goes over & beyond their job to ensure your stay is absolutely unforgettable. If i were returning to Rio I would certainly consider this hotel as an option

Had three nights at Sofitel at beginning of our trip to Brasil, and 2 nights at Miramar at end of trip. Both very nice hotels, but I would choose Sofitel every time, because of the room balconies, and the outside breakfast. At Miramar I felt a little boxed in, and balconies are not typical for Rio hotels. Liked the 2... More

Spent a few days over New Year at this hotel. Walk across the road and you're pretty much standing under the fireworks! What an experience that was!!! Our stay at this hotel was just fantastic. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff and service. The hotel is ideally located across the road from the southern end of Copacabana Beach and... More

Sofitel is an excellent choice in Rio! We have just returned from Rio & Dubai Tour and we stayed there last Aug.21-25. Superb location . . . along Copacabana Beach and on short walking distance from Ipanema Beach. Convenient to some of the most popular restaurants, beer halls, souvenir shops & churches both in Copa and Ipanema. We got two... More

Ok, this snobby American can't say enough about this hotel. The staff could not be nicer. And that's every single person from the front desk, bell staff, waiters....everyone. I needed an electrical adapter, it was brought right up...no charge. I forgot my razor, they brought me one with shaving cream. No matter what I needed, I received great service and... More
