This is a good basic hotel in a tall (16 floors) and narrow building right on Ipanema boulevard. The rooms and beds are relatively large. Front desk staff are friendly. Minibar well-stocked, restaurant and breakfast so-so and the rooftop bar is small but with a very nice view of Ipanema beach. We had 3 rooms on the 9th floor at... More

What a spectacular hotel. If you’re planning to visit Rio de Janeiro, Ipanema is the place to be. The Sol Ipanema hotel is in the heart of the action. The hotel is located directly across the street from the beach with wonderful views and great restaurants right around the corner including the Garota de Ipanema, which is where the “The... More

Superb location. On the beach, close to a wide variety of restaurants, take away places & shops - all within SAFE walking distance (I traveled alone and felt absolutely safe walking to & from restaurants and shops at night). I stayed in an ocean facing room - and yes, the views are as good as you see in the brochures.... More

Across the road from Ipanema beach - we had an ocean view room with a great view. Room was clean, well appointed and comfortable, if a little compact. Great views from the roof where there is a bar and a very small pool - the whole rooftop area is small so only a limited number of people can fit comfortably... More

Ipanema and Copacabana beach stretches look identical, so it makes sense to go with a hotel in Ipanema since it is much safer. In terms of hotel options, there were way more options in Copacabana compared to Ipanema, and Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema is the clear winner for Ipanema options. It is reasonably priced compared to the other four... More

Just returned from staying at the Sol on business. We stayed at the Sheraton for the 2 nights prior (booked by work) and the Sol blows the Sheraton out of the water. Location location location.

You can't find a better location in Rio/Ipanema than this. Literally about 30 yards from the beach, which is what Rio is all about, really. Rooms are not all that big, but the staff is very helpful, and all the front desk staff speak English. You can walk to some of the best shopping shopping in Rio if that's your... More

Came in a group of 18. Check in was at 2pm and all rooms were ready (something not always common in Brazil). Delcious breakfast that varies slightly from day to day - with a few staples. That's great for longer stays. One of our group had to go to the hospital and the front desk was super helpful!
