Wonderful Hotel in Ipanema

This is a low key, charming,beachfront hotel in Ipanema.My room had an amazing view of the beach and I loved the decor. The staff are wonderful and go out of their way to ensure you have a great trip. The location is excellent, you can easily walk anywhere in Ipanema and Leblon. The top floor restaurant is beautiful and the food excellent. I took at local friend to the restaurant for a birthday lunch and he loved it as well. I will definately stay there again.

Great location. Not getting my money's worth. Water temp. control in shower is impossible at a certain time. Staff is vey helpful. I expected more for my money. They charge $ * a minute to use the internet (this is ridiculous). You are only paying for location.

Beautiful Hotel at Southern End of Ipanema

After having spent much time researching hotels in Rio, I decided on the Praia Ipanema based upon amenities and location. It is a smaller, ""boutique"" hotel, but it is very modern and well-appointed. My room was beautifully furnished in a ""Philippe Starck"" kind of way, and it had a balcony with a view northward over Ipanema. Though the fitness center was antiquated and rarely used, there was a small pool with poolside lounge. The front-desk staff all spoke English and were very helpful, and the rest of the staff was also very nice though difficult to communicate with. One drawback to the hotel is its location. At the far southern end of Ipanema, it feels quite removed from Copacabana and the other central areas of Rio. Another drawback was the extremely poor internet reception, but the staff waived that charge. Overall, it was a great hotel.

Although a short two day stay, everything was excellent. Hotel staff were helpfull and polite. Room service was quick and accomodating.\nThe room. spacious and very clean.\nFor the price, the location cannot be beat with a great view of Ipanema Beach.\nHighly recommended as I would gladly book this hotel for any future Rio vacations.

Right on the beach but far away from all

I think the hotel was ok. The rooms are very very small. I would not stay here again. They say a five minute walk to copacabana, but it is more like 20 minute walk at least, which isnt that bad but we expected it to be closer. It is actually one block away from lebon beach and right outside of the hotel is this realy stinky water/sewage reserve. \nThe hotel was in a very very safe area. we were not concerned for our safety in anyway. The hotel staff was helpful but I felt like they were always pushing these outrageous trips on us. we paid 100 reais each for a soccer game where we were picked up in a bus and had to find horribe seats 5 hours before the game because there werent reserved seatings, and then to find out the the ticket only cost these bandits 10 reais!! i was soo angry. I think the guys at the hotel desk who sell you this stuff get an amazing commission. So, that was my only complaint about the staff. Other than that they just seemed worn down. \nSo all in all it was ok for the money, but i wish we had paid a little more and stayed more in the heart of ipanema. or paid the same for an even nicer hotel in copacabana. since they seem to be cheaper there since there are so many. \nSo good luck and have fun!!

Great hotel - would definitely come back there again!

My husband and I stayed at the Praia Ipanema Hotel for 10 days. We loved it and would definitely come back again for future trips. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful -- we could tell they really try their best to make us feel welcome. The hotel itself wasn't the fanciest we've been at, but the rooms were very clean and well-appointed. The best part about the hotel is the LOCATION. It's right on Ipanema Beach (beachfront!), we could hear the ocean waves rolling in when we leave the windows open. My husband and I would order room service and eat while watching the ocean. It was like a dream come true. The hotel staff also provided free beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels for the guests.

Great Location at a Great Price

Staff are courteous/helpful and speak english well. Rooms are not huge but clean/comfortable w/ minifridge. Every room has balcony view of beach. Right on Ipanema/Leblon border. Beach towel, chair/umbrella service is free. Included breakfast is just OK. Numerous restaurants in area for all tastes/budgets. Great rooftop view with (small) swimming pool/bar. Not five-star (or for business), but everything you need to see Rio and bathe on beach. Best part was online travel website($*/night). Go in June/July; weather is still great, prices are lower, and you have beach to yourselves.

Very nice.

The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Unlike most other hotels has balconies overlooking the beach. Great location, just cross the street to great beach and a block or two from stores/restaurants. Towels, chairs, umbrellas available at no cost. Negative: charged extra to use the room safe (but only $1.50/day); charge for internet access by the minute or $20/day. Overall, glad we stayed there
