"First time in Rio"
My partner and I came here as part of my 40th birthday, we're doing a mini tour of South America (Rio being our first stop) Our tour operator offered us the Sofitel and I have to say we have not been disappointed. We got an upgrade to a superior room, facing the sea, spotlessly clean and a good size room. Breakfast is the best continental breakfast I've had, lots of choice and a glass of fizz!! We also didn't realise the hotel has its own section on the beach at the front, loungers/umberellas and fresh fruit, just what you need to relax. But ultimately the hotel staff are what have made it for us, two girls travelling and haven't once felt unsafe or nervy. The main guy out in the car port will get you a safe taxi, won't rip you off and will be there to greet you on your return to see have you had a good evening. If we ever came to Rio again, the Sofitel would be our first choice.
We had a wonderful stay. The staff, specially reception, the concierge and the breakfast folks, could not have been more welcoming, helpful, efficient and accommodating. Do get a room with an ocean (or partial) view. And the location, of course, is unbeatable. We'll definitely come back next time.
We stayed at the Rio Sofitel. The staff, particularly the General Manger, were very helpful and attentive. The hotel is a bit dated and is apparently undergoing renovation. The highlight of the stay was having dinner in the restaurant. It overlooks the beach and the view at sunset was magical. The food and wine were excellent. If you cannot go for dinner at least go for a sunset cocktail
"A good hotel in a good location"
I stayed here because I was attending and participating in a conference which was being held at the hotel. It was an excellent choice. The hotel is clean, the staff and personnel are very friendly and helpful. Outside of the front door is the Copacabana beach and only a short walk is the beginning of Ipanema Beach.
"Quality stay guaranteed"
Very centrally located, bar restaurant and external pool are perfect Junior suite and over (club millesime or not) with sea view are incredible; Highly priced though (but probably the only address of such quality with the even more expensive hotel fasano)
