Rio de Janeiro: Sofitel Rio

Sofitel Rio

The Sofitel has an enviable position at the end of world-famous Copacabana beach and its lively promenade, the Avenida Atlântica. Just beyond is Ipanema with its equally vibrant beach life and a choice of chic bars and cafés. 

All rooms come equipped with flat screen TV, minibar, marbled bathroom and – a real bonus in Rio – a balcony or terrace. We particularly like the deluxe rooms as they have direct ocean views. 

There are two swimming pools – one to catch the morning sun, the other for the afternoon. A full Brazilian breakfast is served in the first-floor restaurant and on the sunny terrace, which enjoys sweeping sea views. If you feel like a workout afterwards, there's an impressive gym.

What our experts say

A quietly sophisticated first class hotel with facilities you won’t find at many properties in Rio, such as your own balcony, two pools and plenty of outside space in which to relax, eat, drink and enjoy the views.
