Very nice rooms, great breakfast , 2 pools and right opposite Copacabana where the hotel had it's own area within the beach. Staff were excellent and very friendly. Like everything else in Rio very clean and don't believe what you hear about crime Rio is safer than the UK.

This hotel is really in a spectacular position, close to both beaches in Copacabana and Ipanema, and to all that area has to offer. In itself, it has a fantastic breakfast, and very beautiful rooms and interiors. Having breakfast at the pool overlooking the bay is the right way to start a day!! Overall, really an excellent hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights. We had a beach view room which was well equipped and comfortable. Small balcony was a plus. The fitness center and pool area are excellent and not crowded when we went. Best is the location which is on Copacabana beach, across from Fort Copacabana and a 5 minute walk to Ipanema...

This hotel is SUPERBLY located, it looks nice from the outside, has 2 great pools what looks like a FANTASTIC restaurant (I haven't eaten there yet) and whilst the lobby looks up to date the corridors and certainly my room could use a little TLC. This looks like a hotel that was built possibly in the 1970's, and it also...

We have stayed at the Sofitel Rio Copacabana many times, but the hotel is in need of an update. Indeed we understand that the hotel is scheduled to be closed for 18 months for major reforms and subsequent relaunch under another Accor Hotels brand. We have always stayed in Club Millesime rooms with the lounge/bar/breakfast on the 8th floor and...

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.
