Amazing accomodation
Excellent hotel that I would highly recommend. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating from the front desk checking me in early and organising taxi's whenever I needed, to the concierge who recommended great places to eat and shop. The room was clean and modern with beautiful views of Christ the Redeemer and Ipanema beach. The wifi was very reliable too. My only negative would be that the breakfast buffet was very average, especially for the price and I would find other places nearby to eat breakfast.

Rubbish "service".
Nasty, rubbish service (if it can called such). They are great at spying on guests but rubbish at providing anything like reasonable service. Fridge took 4 days to be fixed; always had to phone up EVERY DAY MULTIPLE TIMES to get missed or forgotten things brought to the room. Forget 10 minutes service time - things take days to be fixed (several hours if lucky). Made my holiday here a miserable experience.

Good service, location and staffs
It was good. Nothing extra ordinary other than great location. It would you have been nice to have fresh bottle of complimentary water in the room everyday. I would again like to mention about the staff checked in me at the reception , good job from him to be the face of the hotel in providing great hospitality.

Staff was super nice and professional. Breakfast was delicious with lots of great local fruit. Waiter was charming! Steam room was broken and food in hotel restaurant at dinner was mediocre. Tea in the hotel lobby was great. I strongly recommend.

Staying in rio
Overall my stay at the Sofitel was fine. I would definitely say it was more of a 4 star hotel rather than a 5 . Don’t get me wrong the service was absolutely 5 star, but the. Outside definitely needed a makeover and also bathroom plumbing made noises. The area of impanema is definitely better and safer but would say a little more pricey. The breakfast in the hotel was way overpriced for like $30 per person, but I guess it what you get for a 5 star( supposedly) I don’t think I would have a problem with staying there again.
