We really loved this hotel which we chose for its quality and location; it is at the top of Copacabana beach overlooking the full stretch of this beautiful beach towards Sugar Loaf Mountain, and with Ipanema beach 'just around the corner'. It was at the higher end of our budget but so worthwhile. We stayed for 12 nights over the...

There are quite a few issues I can overlook. Like a blocked toilet in our junior suite, or the left over medicine wrappers from previous guests. But I cannot overlook breeches to safety and security. When sitting in our room, my partner and I were shocked to find another guest walk right in on us! The other guest was equally...

Wonderful hotel set opposite Copacabana Beach and short walk to Ipanema Beach. Could do with a refurb but otherwise great place to stay. Comfy beds and a buffet breakfast to die for. I would stay here again.

The hotel is nice and in great location! Borders between Copacabana and Ipanema. So access to both beaches are easy. The rooms are tasteful and so is the bathroom. The pool area is a let down as it's small and the service both at restaurants and room (housekeeping especially) is not up to Sofitel standards. We had to call multiple...

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.
