The hotel is very well located between Ipanema and Copacabana. Its breakfast is served in the restaurant in which you can eat on the sidewalk in front of the beach. Arpoador however is not the safest place. The room is very small, with a small window, this was the workst part because you cannot open the window to have some... More

My wife and I stayed there for three nights and this leg of the trip we sacrificed a nice room for location and price as we opted to spoil ourselves at other hotels on our travels. The Arpoador Inn did not disappoint - the staff was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond helping us book bus service to Ihla... More

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. The hotel has a perfect location; right in from of the beach, close to a big rock called arpoador where you can just sit and enjoy the Ipanema beach at any time, the area is well illuminated, so I always felt safe even alone. Copacabana is also a 10 min walking distance... More

Right on the beach but our room looked into a brick wall and other rooms so had to keep curtain shut to maintain privacy, however who wants to stay in your room when you have Rio to explore. We are glad we stayed here as we felt safe and loved exploring the area. The staff are helpful and happy to... More

Dear guest, Thank you so much for recommending the ARPOADOR INN to guests all over the world. Next time you visit us, we recommend you try one of the other categories, Superior and Deluxe - one is facing the tree-lined street and the second overlooks the beautiful beaches of Arpoador, Ipanema and Leblon. Thank you for your feedback on the... More

The hotel is in a good location but the rooms are quite small and in need of attention. I stayed on the street side of the place and as you would expect it was very noisy. I got used to it but if you want to sleep past 7am I'd bring some ear plugs. The bathroom is a good size... More

Location is the main highlight of this hotel - you're bang in the middle between Ipanema and Copacabana beach, straight on the beach since the hotel is in the area where there's no traffic. Apart from that, rooms are ok, breakfast not great tbh and staff quite helpful. What annoyed us the most was the persistent fish smell in the... More

Beautiful hotel on Ipanema beach, safe area, friendly and helpful service. Rooms are big, quiet and clean. Breakfast is delicious. Location is great, It is a short taxi ride to get to the zoo, Christ Redeemer statue and Sugar Loaf mountain

I enjoyed my stay very much. the rooms were very quiet, even on the street side of the hotel. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, with a comfortable bed and a good shower. The convenience of the location is superb! You go to the restaurant, and out the door, across the sidewalk and fall onto the beach, and... More

The best thing about this hotel is not having to cross the big boulevard to get to Ipanema beach. The rooms are very modest, though bathrooms are renovated and nice. Breakfast was very basic. Concierge service was excellent. They helped with sightseeing advice and arranged two excellent restaurant reservations.

The reviews you see are all fair. The BEST thing about this hotel is it really is on the beach. There is no pool, no gym, no spa and the rooms are average. Boo hoo. If you want a swim use the beach, if you want to work out go up to Arpoador for the free facilities. If you want... More
