The Sofitel Rio de Janeiro is one of the original iconic hotels in Rio and occupies a prominent position on the headland between Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. The hotel has a resort-style feel that centres around the attractive outdoor swimming pool, which comes complete with fabulous views over Copacabana Beach.
To complement the pool there is also a spa with an extensive menu of treatments plus a sauna and gymnasium.
One of the best reasons to stay at the Sofitel is its location, a stone's throw from the sights and sounds of busy Rio de Janeiro. The hotel is the perfect retreat for some R'n'R, once you've had enough sightseeing. There is no need to compete with all the sunseekers on Copacabana Beach!
The hotel has a great restaurant with an large terrace area, offering a delicious menu that can be enjoyed whilst overlooking Copacabana Beach. There is also a nice bar that serves an extensive menu of drinks, including a number of wines from across South America. The bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail at the start of your evening in the city.
The hotels rooms are very comfortable with king size beds, private bathrooms, flat screen TVs, a minibar and safe. Latin Routes recommends the room types that offer views over Copacabana Beach. Many rooms also feature a balcony and there is nothing better than ordering breakfast to your room (extra charge) and having your morning coffee overlooking Rio.
