    I just returned from Rio and i stayed at the Sofitel.Ordering a deluxe room with view is a plus! The breakfast is complete and the hotel has 2 pools.What i highly recomend is the french restaurant in the first floor, order a table with view.Is not cheap but it worths it. I agree that if u re looking for a very nice beach just in front of the hotel, this is not the case.

    Unique Quality: nice deluxe rooms.Nice view.Very good french restaurant.

  • Another nice property, but...

    This is located on the far end of Copacabana opposite of the Le Meredien. I would say this hotel is catered more to the business traveler and is tucked away a little bit from everyone else in the corner. The hotel staff was not very friendly and did not send water to the room after two requests when my wife was sick...

    Also, I was a victim of credit card fraud--I only used a certain card once in Rio to check out of the Sofitel. When I arrived back to the States, I found out that someone in the hotel had provided my number to someone else and I had 5000 usd of construction materials charged on the card...the hotel was not too concerned when I reported it....In fact, I read on trip advisor that other travelers has experienced the same problem...beware!

    Unique Quality: Beautiful rooms...the hotel is not too big. Two pools, one for the morning and afternoon.

    I did not like the beach...very small. Do not choose this hotel if you plan a lot of time at the beach...

The Sofitel Rio de Janeiro

by traveldave

I spent a week in the Sofitel Rio de Janeiro (formerly the Rio Palace Hotel), located on Ponta de Copacabana between the Copacabana and Ipanema neighborhoods. The hotel offers 388 luxurious rooms with balconies overlooking Copacabana Beach and Sugar Loaf Mountain. The Sofitel Rio de Janeiro provides its business travelers with a state-of-the-art convention and business center. In addition, there are two swimming pools, two saunas, and a gymnasium.

Guests have a choice of two fine restaurants and two bars. The Restaurante Atlantis specializes in buffets with special themes, lunch, and à la carte dinner. The Restaurante Le Pré Catalan has been rated as one of the top ten hotel restauants in the world by Hotel World magazine. Its menu changes every two weeks.

The Bar Horse's Neck has an extensive selection of Belgian beers, and the Pool Bar offers cocktails, snacks, light lunches, and sandwiches.

really nicely designed hotels?

by mysweetiepete

so I've read all the reviews and STILL I can't figure out which hotels in Rio have really cool design and ambiance. Aesthetics are everything. I don't care if they're spanking new or 200 years old, but which are the best 2 or 3 designed hotels?
thanks!

Are you looking for a boutiqe/design hotel? The Portinari in Copa is quite nice. Supposedly the Marina all suites is very nice but I have never stayed there. Look for the House in Rio in Jardim Botanica I saw a review for it in Air Frances magazine and it looked very nice, more a guest house than hotel.
