We stayed here for 9 nights in June. Staff at reception are wonderful. Very helpful. Room spacious with wonderful views. We stayed on the 15th floor at the front of the hotel. There was netting but it was pulled away from our widows so we still had the view. Bathroom was spacious. All very clean. Great shower. Comfy bed. Breakfast... More

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 late providing this review but goes to show my motivation for still needing to express just how awful my experience was. Stayed here July 2014. 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

Excellent hotel on Viera Souto, the avenue along Ipanema beach. I grew up going to the beach at this location, my favorite spot along Ipanema-Leblon. Hotel is very accommodating, clean, and will help arrange anything from dinner recommendations and reservations to tours to tickets to games at Maracana. Rooms are nice. Worth the extra cost to stay at this heart... More

The location is perfect. Right on the beach and very close to restaurants. The breakfast buffet in the morning is a great way to start your day and the rooftop bar is a great place to start your evening. The staff was very helpful and was able to arrange day trips. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

After spent time in Angra, and then attending the wedding in Volta Redonda, we moved to this hotel, right on Ipanema Beach. Never before have we had such an exquisite view from our room. There were scores of volleyball games going on, vendors on the beach (who just showed their wares, and didn't bug you) and beautiful waves rolling in,... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel early May and found it to be q great hotel, location, service and even breakfast. I would definitely stay here again if I ever go again. The hotel provides towels, chairs, umbrellas and so to sit on the beautiful Ipenima beach.

Fantastic view, great service, close to the action by private. Wonderful breakfast, Italian restaurant in the premises serves delicious food. Great value and friendly service. Beach is across the street, great service with beach chairs, towels, etc... Walking distance to the market, great shopping, safe area, plenty of cabs around.

The biggest draw for this hotel is the location right behind Posto 9 on Ipanema beach. However, that's the ONLY good thing about it. I paid for an ocean-view room. I had read previous reviews that stated the ongoing repairs and blocked views. However, I had also read the hotel manager's response which states that they mention this at the... More
