An unsophisticated hotel with good concierge services. Leonardo and Leonaro looked after us really well. The hotel is right on Ipanema Beach with a good restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner.. Granted we would have liked to be in Leblon where there is more life in terms of shopping or in Copacabana Beach where there are more restaurants and activities... More

1-THE BEACH: it's right on it, and it's very close to posto 9 which is where you want to be if you like Ptown and Fire Island. 2-THE ROOMS: mine had a nice sea front view. The bedding was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and modern. 3-THE POOL... It's tiny but it's on the roof and you... More

I stayed here for the first time in 1998 on my first trip to Brazil. Very impressionable, so I decided to stay again but this time with my son and husband - their first time to Brazil. The view is absolutely gorgeous with Two Brothers on the one end and Arpoador on the opposite end. I stayed ocean front in... More

Very friendly staff, great location opposite posto 9 on Ipanema Beach. Breakfast is very diversified and with a beatiful view over Ipanema. Restaurants nearby. Rooftop and swimmingpool are a bit small and the bar on the rooftop closes early.

We have just checked in to this hotel - Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema Hotel on Ipanema Beach for 4 nights, however to our horror the front of the building was covered in scaffolding. The room we had booked with a sea view was covered in 'net' and heavy cable wires This was a gross misrepresentation of a sea view... More

We booked the Sol Ipanema as a bit of a last 4 nights in Rio treat and weren't disappointed. Don't be fooled by the currently shabby exterior (which is currently undergoing a facility hence the scaffolds and netting coverage) - we stayed at the Mar Ipanema for our first 3 days and were a bit worried when we looked at...

I had a complicated reservation with several couples and families arriving and departing on different dates over a week. I called the reservations line and talked to the Brazilian lady on the phone, but from the first minute, she was upset and crabby. She must have been having a bad day, because she ended up raising her voice to me... More

This hotel is situated in front of "posto 9" in Ipanema beach and is very close to the Ipanema shopping area, restaurants and obviously the beach. The hotel looks pretty new and everything worked perfectly. It has a deck with great beach views and a small (3-4 people) plunge pool. Overall, this is a very good hotel with great service.... More
