This is a luxury hotel and a bit above my normal price range, but a week's stay there was a birthday gift. We stayed at the Executive top floor, which means perks like separate check-in and a separate breakfast room at the roof terrace, where they also served snacks throughout the day and free wine sampling at night. Making the...

Stayed here for a 3 night business trip and this hotel was perfect in every respect.

My new husband and I honeymooned at the Sofitel for three nights. We sprung for a balcony view room over Copacabana, which was pricey but worth it for us because of the special occasion. It has a very nice view because of its location near the corners of Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Because it was their wintertime, we did not...

My husband and I stayed for a week at the Sofitel in August. We had chosen the Club Millisme 8th floor, partly because my husband travels frequently for work and likes to be pampered!

Not being a member of a loyalty program probably results in punters like me getting shipped off to the worst rooms. Although when your forking out $500 a night it should not happen.

Good location and has 2 swimming pools but neither are great. Breakfast was good and location is great between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.

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.
