Rooms are good with verandas. Breakfast is excellent by the poolside. The Lobby I felt was small. But there is a lounge area which is very comfortable. The Poolside restaurant is quite romantic and one can sit for hours to enjoy the view. Its located at one end of the Copacabana stretch, Very comfortable rooms supplied with very good amenities.

The Sofitel Rio has a great and helpful staff in a perfect location, it should have all the requairments to be a wonderfoul stay in Rio, but has a main issue, it need maintenance in the rooms and in several other parts of the hotel. With a little investment it can recover all its charm.

I was most impressed with the location and the service of this hotel. All staff were very friendly and spoke English. Anybody that has traveled to Brazil will know that friendly staff is nothing unusual, but a decent level of English is not common.

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.
