I stayed here during for the Rio carnival. The location is fantastic. It is closer to Ipanema beach but Copacabana beach is not too far. The room is so so but comfortable and clean. We don't spend a lot of time in the room anyways. I'd give 5 star on hospitality. The receptionist is friendly and helpful. Overall very happy... More

The hotel Arpoador Inn in Rio de Janeiro has a great view at the sea. There is no street between the hotel an the beach/sea. cobacabana and impanema are really close (walking distance). The famous praia de Arpoador is right infront of the hotel. From the hotel you have the best sunset for free in rio

While in Rio for learning Jiu Jitsu I stayed at Arpoador. I don't think there is a better area to be in; close to the sea and in the better end of Ipanema, right where the surfers are. It's simple, yet nice. Nothing much to say about the rooms but the breakfast was super delicious. Fresh fruit and a large... More

This hotel has mostly one big advantage- location: right on the seashore. Otherwise there are many problems. I would not choose to stay here again, but ideas could differ so here are the advantages and disadvantages so you could make your own choice: Advantages: 1.

It's a little bit basic here, but the room had a great view (plus hammock by the window - a novel touch), with walk-in shower, minibar and a big comfy bed. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, and there's a great bar area outside on the promenade looking down over the top end of Ipanema. Nearby is a little... More

The Hotel Arpoador Inn is an understated boutique hotel located on the Ipanema Beach Boardwalk. The rooms are simple and clean, and the beds are quite comfortable.

The absolute best location in Rio. Rooms are sort of old but spacious and charming (the rooms with windows towards Ipanema are obviously to die for), very helpful and friendly staff with great tips and recommendations, the restaurant is great, both for breakfast and lunch/dinner (and also an amazing spot to watch the sunset).
