Have stayed at this hotel numerous times because I like the location a lot. Had a four night stay in early March. The service is still dependent who happens to be at the front desk or pick up the phone. Sometime things work and are taking care of while other times not so. Had access to the lounge and breakfast...

We stopped off here for 3 nights with friends and had a great time. We had a slight problem with room allocation on arrival but they sorted it out. Go for the exec rooms with a beach view, they have stunning views and are well equipped. The club lounge in the evening with complimentary drinks and snacks was a great...

I went here with 4 friends for carnival 2017 and overall I would recommend this hotel as it is in a good location; right at the end of Copacabana beach, just before the start of Ipanema beach. First impressions of the hotel was good, check-in was OK, rooms clean, spacious enough with what you need in there. All the staff...

We were here for three nights prior to a cruise. The hotel is outdated but in a good location. The staff are ok, but not much energy going on...did their job. The room was actually quite nice overlooking the pool. Offered an upgrade for about $85AUD on arrival but didn't see the point considering we wouldn't be spending much time...

As always I enjoyed my stay at the Sofitel Copacabana, one helpful new point is thatcher hotel will be closed for a much needed renovations as of the 30th of April, for 2 years! Looking forward to the new hotel, saw some specs and its will be incredible!

I should mention that this was the only hotel on our recent trip I did not book myself. Our very good private guide redirected us from a luxury boutique hotel in the most dangerous part of Rio (razor wire - who knew?). And I'm torn, genuinely, because I can't rave about the place and I can't say it's bad. And...

Fantastic stay for 6 days before we moved onto Buzios. I had emailed certain requests to the hotel, (we were a party of 8 adults) in relation to our stay some weeks beforehand and upon arrival at 11pm, it was all sorted. The hotel also arranged all our trips, including a football match at the Olympic stadium. Breakfast was fantastic,...

I am a big fan of Sofitel, always stay in Accor hotel no matter where else I go. This is the worst experience I ever had with them. We did feel very welcoming in the whole period of stay.

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.
