I had originally booked 5 nights at the Sol Ipanema but ended up only staying for two. The location is great, right on the sea front but like other reviewers found the windows to be installed with bluetac and the sea facing rooms a tad noisy. The weather was not great so the wind did intrude. At the time of... More

I stayed in this hotel three years ago and I must stay that since the last time I was here the overall experience has definitely improved. This remains a very strange hotel (tall and thin), a bit overprced because of the excellent location, but everything from the cleanliness to the service seems better than in the past. Bravi!

We stayed at the Sol Ipanema for only one night. As it is a tall, thin building it has only six rooms per floor: three facing the ocean and six the city. It is located across a divided street from the beach. We choose an ocean front room, which was small but very clean and contained everything we needed for... More

I spent a week for business in Rio in this hotel. I was on 13th floor, mountain view. The room is big with king bed. Windows are indeed not well isolated, but being on top floor not facing the main street it was ok. Service was excellent, staff is friendly and rooms are very clean. Breakfast is good and served...

The hotel is located in Ipanema looking at the beach. It can be quite noisy at the first 2-3 floors. If you got the room without ocean view you risk to have not the nicest scenery - just looking to the wall. Breakfast is fine, could be more diverse. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, bathrobe is provided.

The location is great, The staff are helpful and pretty organized. Like all 3/4 star Hotels in Rio the hotel is old from an architectural point, sound insulation is bad: windows in particular. IF you are light slleper get rooms at the back... but no view! Breakfast is average. Shame that most Rio hotels did not take the opportunity of... More

Sol de Ipanema Hotel is located in the best area of Ipanema Beach. The view is spectacular. The hotel is very good with an excellent staff. Our room was on the 6th floor, not very big, but quiet and nice. The rates are a little expensive but it is worth it.. Breakfast was great with a good variety and an... More

The location of the hotel is great. Right at Ipanema Beach. However, the prices are pretty stiff especially compared to other hotels in the area with the same location and the same quality rooms. We arrived early in the morning and we actually got to check in early without extra charges. That was great! The rooms were nice and big,... More

This place is really all you need for a great stay in Rio, minus the non-existent balcony. That is my main qualm with the place - the rooms don't have balconies from which to enjoy the beautiful views! The hotel overall is small, but equipped with a wonderful restaurant, a (very small) pool, a (very small) gym, and a (very... More

Don't underestimate the noise issue with this hotel. We were placed on a low floor at the front of the hotel and though the view was great it was like sleeping on the sidewalk of a very busy street. As other reviewers pointed out, sound insulation from the windows is almost non-existent (they barely close), so if you are in... More
