Fodor's Expert Review Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Ipanema

Av. Vieira Souto 460, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 22420–000, Brazil

In the heart of Ipanema, close to high-class shops and gourmet restaurants, this beachfront hotel has established itself among business travelers, celebrities, and heads of state who appreciate its impeccable service; and while the suites are impressive, other rooms feel more functional than luxurious. Now managed by Sofitel, the hotel has been given a dash of French savoir-faire through elegant touches such as candlelit lounges, a dedicated pastry chef, and wine-tasting events.
