closed for Renovations! The location of Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana is a splendid one. It leaves the guest practically leaning over Copacabana beach – one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is beside Ipanema, a charming neighborhood full of attractions, immortalized in...

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.

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.

Unfortunately, I believe it was a queen but don't recall except I always ask for a king - just not sure what I received. As far as Australian king as comparison, when I was in Sydney a few years ago it wasn't a king so not sure how to compare to US king. There is also something called a California King in US which is. an oversized king.
I'm sure they will confirm size available when you make reservation. Ask for ocean view and concierge floor access if in your budget. Also, a visit to Iguazu Falls is worth the trip
If, by some coincidence, you are going from Brazil to South Africa check to see if you need yellow fever shots.
