Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana (closed for refurbishment)

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Sofitel is right in the middle between Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Great location. Very comfortable. Good A/C. Food and service were very nice and the staff friendly and helpful. Conceirge arranged a private tour with an English-speaking driver for $50/hr. We spent 4 hours with him, and it was money well spent.

This is a comfortable hotel with superb dining options. The buffet breakfast is worth it as well as the view of the beach. Hotel has currency exchange on site as well as a decent fitness center. I always enjoy staying at the Sofitel

The Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana has past its prime. The carpets are worn out many things do not function correctly (like the water temperature during a shower) - well below the expectations for what is supposed to be a high quality hotel. A frustration for this travel company. Other travel groups make things very clear when a reservation cannot be changed or pre-paid. The reservation does say it cannot be changed but it is not clear and can easily be unnoticed. This is unexpected when one is paying full price for a worn down hotel. The cost/value was exceptionally poor based on my experiences.

Staff very helpfull and great location, hotel room was very clean and the concierge was awesome

It was a great stay. The hotel was excellent, and worth the money.

Location was wonderful, service was impeccable, and the view was spectacular. At first we had wanted to stay at the Copacabana Palace, but ended up choosing the Sofitel, and we are sooo glad we did. Much better location, and much less stuffy. We loooved it, we will definitely stay here again!

This hotel is in a great location. I think they are asking too much money for what you get, but overall it is not a bad place to stay. Location, location, location is important in Rio.

The rooms were very modern, bed was awesome, and the view on the beach side was well worth the upgrade. Breakfast was the best we found in the area, on a great patio overlooking the beach. The staff was friendly too. Overall it was a positive experience in what I thought would be a stuffy hotel. I would stay here again if I visit Rio again.
