I really hope they will get on with renovating this hotel soon, as the rooms and all public places, restaurants etc are outdated and does not meet the standards nor expectations of a international traveller anymore.
My wife and I had four nights at Sofitel Rio Copacabana. The room had a strong smell of moisture. The room above us was under going renovation which resulted in some heavy noise. In this way it was impossible to rest in the room between...More

Sofitel Rio De Janeiro Copacabana Hotel Rio De Janeiro ,
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.

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.

Unfortunately, I believe it was a queen but don't recall except I always ask for a king - just not sure what I received. As far as Australian king as comparison, when I was in Sydney a few years ago it wasn't a king so not sure how to compare to US king. There is also something called a California King in US which is. an oversized king.
I'm sure they will confirm size available when you make reservation. Ask for ocean view and concierge floor access if in your budget. Also, a visit to Iguazu Falls is worth the trip
If, by some coincidence, you are going from Brazil to South Africa check to see if you need yellow fever shots.
