In general a great stay at the Rio Sofitel Copacabana. The pools are small but well-kept and clean. The rooms were a bit tired (damaged mouldings and scuffed walls, exterior façade construction left the balcony covered in dust). Excellent service by the front desk staff and concierges.

We stayed there in June 2014 for six nights. Whereas the room was quite nice and the breakfast buffet amazing (with a perfect view on the Copacabana), the surroundings & service are a bit chaotic. The breachfront is not really organized, however the staff tries its best to ensure you get everything. Room service quality is terrible (cold food, takes... More

I had the pleasure to stay at this hotel for only 3 nights and I completely enjoyed my stay here. I arrived very in the morning and was hoping to get a room right away. The receptionist informed me that check-in time would be 3 pm. After a long flight, i was dissapointed. However, after about an hour of walking... More

Stayed in a Prestige Suite at the Sofitel. Outside the front door is Copacabana beach, and out the back door and around the corner and you are on Ipanema beach (and the rock with viewing for perfect sunsets!) - perfectly situated. Also, most of the tours will pick you up at the Sofitel. Going for a Club level room is... More

Hotel is at the copa beach. Nice view nice buffet breakfast. Rooms are ok but need to refresh the decoration. We had good stay for three days. Personnel were very helpful. Concierge helped for reservation to restaurants. Just the taxi service of the hotel is very expensive. Take the ordinary. All were safe

Great view from rooms facing Copacabana beach. Location is perfect, short walk to the beach, it has supermarkets and other stores near by, and there are taxis available all the time. Service is great, most of the people speak english and spanish. You can get food and drinks from the hotel's restaurant served in the beach and they provide you... More

You can't do much better than this hotel for location and view, assuming you get an ocean view. Staff very helpful and focused on excellent service. Our mini-suite was comfortable, though the A/C blows from the outside room. This mean no direct air on you when you're sleeping (good), but you have to turn it very cold to be comfortable... More

This hotel is in an excellent location right across from the beach. It's also a short walk to Ipanema. The breakfast is good, and the setting is lovely. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very dated, and they smell musky. The decor is very old (70s carpet in the hallways needs to go!). My room was... More

The hotel is situated at one bed of Copacabana beach with wonderful views from the breakfast room around the bay towards Sugar Loaf Mountain. We splashed out on a room with the same view and it was spectacular - we did in fact choose the hotel specifically for the view. The hotel is somewhat dated (originally opened in 1979) and... More
