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

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
