Another great stay at this perfectly located hotel, facing Ipanema beach. The hotel is close to everything: beach, shops, bars, restaurants, among the best is Rio, are accessible walking at any time without security problem. Completely different than Copacabana! And sooooooo less boring than Santa Tereza district…. And all other Rio´s interesting spots are easily reachable by taxi or metro.... More

Hotel is very well located at Ipanema Beach. The breakfast has a very good variety of stuff. Dinner and lunch are also nice with good desserts options. Staff is friendly. You have towels and chairs to take to the beach. The pool área is very small, but who need it if you have the beach just across the street..? With... More

We stayed at the Sol Ipanema over New Year. The hotel choices in Ipanema are extremely limited especially if you are looking for luxury and over NY this was one of the only options we could find. For close to $500 per night for their new year package, this really wasn't worth the money especially when you compare what you... More

Hotel is nice but old. Clean but really the design of the rooms is quite passed. The pool is the size of a large tub and the roof top bar is the size of a living room. Good side the hotel could not be better located in front of Ipanema beach and the rooms are clean and pretty quiet, enough... More

I found myself in rio for the weekend. This hotel was great. Right across the street from the beach. The restaurant on the second floor was great Italian food and even had my favourite wine! I would stay here again with my family. The roof top pool and bar were really cool.

My husband and I stayed at the Sol Ipanema for four nights in June 2015. The hotel is right on the beach and has amazing views. The facade of the hotel is undergoing renovation, so a net was over our windows that faced the beach. However, the net did not impede our views, but I was glad that I knew... More

I'm well traveled and have stayed in 100s of hotels in over 60 countries. This ranks at quite the lower end, which is sad considering the prominence of the location and Rio itself. My... More
