Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Sofitel Rio de Janeiro holds prime real estate on Copacabana Beach and five minutes from Ipanema Beach. Chairs, towels, sun loungers, and security on the beach as well as complimentary water and fruit salads are provided by the hotel. Sun worshippers can work on their Brazilian tans from dawn until dusk as the hotel’s two pools are perfectly placed so one gets the morning sunshine and the other is drenched in afternoon rays.

Modern guest rooms are furnished in wood and leather, and each one has a private balcony with views of the ocean, mountains or both. Guests are pampered with extras such as free mineral water, Wi-Fi and pillow menus.

Acclaimed chef Roland Villard runs the hotel’s Le Pré-Catalan, serving French cuisine with a Brazilian twist that is “as good as its Parisian original,” according to Fodor’s. The daily breakfast buffet’s French pastries is presented on the oceanfront terrace and is worth waking up early for. If the beach isn’t relaxing enough, guests can indulge at the full-service spa complete with a solarium and Turkish bath. 

From the press:
  • "Picture-perfect views that take in the entire length of Copacabana's beach" -- Fodor’s
