Upon entering your room, your attention will immediately be grabbed by the big balcony and its exceptional panoramic view over the legendary Copacabana beach, with Sugarloaf Mountain providing the backdrop! Indeed, the Sofitel is one of the few hotels in Rio in which all of the rooms have a balcony, 80% of which overlook Copacabana beach and the bay. The balcony is furnished with 2 wooden chairs and a round table, also made of wood. The generously dimensioned rooms (35m²t) are carpeted and very well equipped. They are adorned with pictures of French and Brazilian landmarks, for example, the Eiffel Tower and Christ the Redeemer. All of the rooms are equipped with individual air conditioning, an LCD flat screen satellite television (70 channels), a large electronic code safe (free), a DVD player with a free selection of films to choose from, a minibar fridge, a desk, a telephone, and free Wifi and ADSL wired Internet access. Room service is available 24 hours a day. The bed is very comfortable and guests even have the luxury of choosing their own pillow! The clean and shiny granite-clad bathroom is accessed through a mirrored double door. It is brightly lit and fitted with a large fixed tropical shower doubled up with a flexible shower head (there is no bathtub), a toilet, telephone, hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, tissues, a magnifying mirror, cotton buds, verbena hospitality products, and even a condom! If you raise the blind, you can watch television or enjoy the view from the balcony!
