We stayed twice (4 nights and 2 nights stays) in April in this hotel, and we got mixed feeling about our stays.. The staff was doing its best to accommodate us, the location is great (facing Copacabana and near Ipanema..), the facilities were good ( 2 swimming pools, one terrace with view on Copacabana, good gym facility..) but no one...

We just had 4 nights at this Sofitel. Before booking, I did a heap of research both here and on FlyerTalk and read a lot of mixed reviews on this hotel. Particularly for me, because I'm a Platinum Accor Member, I heard how the Platinum treatment was very hit and miss at the Sofitel. So I emailed the hotel to...

I visited in April 2017. it was an amazing experience. We stayed in the Luxury Room with balcony. The room and bathroom amenities were upto the mark. The moment we entered the room and saw the view from the balcony, we were overwhelmed. The view is of the full Copacabana strip. Location is very good, right at the starting of...

Have stayed at this hotel numerous times because I like the location a lot. Had a four night stay in early March. The service is still dependent who happens to be at the front desk or pick up the phone. Sometime things work and are taking care of while other times not so.

We stopped off here for 3 nights with friends and had a great time. We had a slight problem with room allocation on arrival but they sorted it out. Go for the exec rooms with a beach view, they have stunning views and are well equipped. The club lounge in the evening with complimentary drinks and snacks was a great...

Neighbourhood 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.
