This hotel isn't cheap but that purely reflects the location. The staff on the front desk were good. The rooms are average as they are a bit dated it can be noisy as the windows and the air con aren't quiet but the view is good. The pool is okay (more like a large bath) but it took over 30... More

We stayed at the Sol Ipanema for 9 days, and found it to be the perfect venue for enjoying the best of Rio. With a location directly across from Posto 9, you have a phenomenal view of Ipanema beach, and are in easy walking distance to shopping, dining, and entertainment. Although the weather was not cooperative, their offer of beach... More

The hotel has the perfect location on ipanema. The room was clean and well equipped. The roof terrace offers a small pool ( big bath really, but enough ... ) and a bar ( drinks and food which was really average ), perfect to relax and enjoy the incredible view.

We visited this hotel last year, and they were still doing some renovations to the hotel. But the staff more than made up for renovations. We were upgraded to a room with a view of the beach. We were treated to the most refreshing water every day, I'm still trying to recreate the fruited water at home. The location was... More

This is an excellent hotel, very well placed for the fabulous beach and for the restaurants and shops of Ipanema. We stayed here twice on our journey round Brazil and had ocean view rooms each time. These are really worth the extra as the views are just amazing. Ipanema is - in our view - more upmarket than Copacabana. Our... More

The staff was very accomodating and professional and went out of their way at all times to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. The rooms are very good quality; the location is great with excellent access to the beach. I am a frequent traveler and found the staff to be exceptional in every regard.
