The Sofitel Hotel in Rio D.J. is situated overlooking the beach just at the start of Copacabana and at the end of Ipanema.
It's an amazing position, sadly the hotel is tired and definitely showing signs of a lack of investment over past years.
The rooms are a reasonable size, most with balconies overlooking the beach, but they don't feel as though they've seen much of a revamp for the past 20 years, this also applies to the bar, which could be amazing with spectacular views. Instead it's poor seating, music that's too loud and staff that seem to only speak Portuguese, which isn't much help in an international hotel.
The high point however, is the breakfast. Absolutely first class.
To conclude, too expensive, poorly maintained (the plumbing was a bit if a problem) and in desperate need of modernisation.
