We had a wonderful stay. The staff, specially reception, the concierge and the breakfast folks, could not have been more welcoming, helpful, efficient and accommodating. Do get a room with an ocean (or partial) view. And the location, of course, is unbeatable. We'll definitely come back next time.

We stayed at the Rio Sofitel. The staff, particularly the General Manger, were very helpful and attentive. The hotel is a bit dated and is apparently undergoing renovation. The highlight of the stay was having dinner in the restaurant. It overlooks the beach and the view at sunset was magical. The food and wine were excellent. If you cannot go... More

I stayed here because I was attending and participating in a conference which was being held at the hotel. It was an excellent choice. The hotel is clean, the staff and personnel are very friendly and helpful. Outside of the front door is the Copacabana beach and only a short walk is the beginning of Ipanema Beach.

Very centrally located, bar restaurant and external pool are perfect Junior suite and over (club millesime or not) with sea view are incredible; Highly priced though (but probably the only address of such quality with the even more expensive hotel fasano)

Stayed at this hotel during the Olympics so, in all fairness, any shortcoming may have been magnified by the sheer volume of guests and other associated activities going on. Looking past the immediate tumult generated by the games, I would say the hotel is a bit tired even though it appears a quick coat of paint may have been employed... More

We enjoyed the location of the hotel and friendly staff , easy access to Copacabana and Ipanema , with all restaurants in nice walking distance. Hotel will go through renovation after the Carnaval, because currently one could consider it is a vintage hotel.

We can access both Ipanema beach, Copacabana beach. 4km walks takes us to edge of the beach, means this hotel is center of both Ipanema and Copacabana. If you stay here you can enjoy morning walking or running. However I recomend not to bring something out of office when you walk. It is to say someone is robbed phones.

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.
