I stayed at Arpoador Inn April 29 - May 2 for my 3 day trip to Rio. The hotel is located in a perfect spot, on a quiet section of beach right in the middle of Ipanema and Copacabana beaches so that both are very easily walkable. It is one of the only hotels that is practically right on the... More

Rio location is PERFECT. Most hotels are on a main road. This is ON the beach. Book ocean side if you don't like roads. It's small, it's simple. By no means a place to go for a spa day or hanging out - it only has the restaurant. I am a woman of simple pleasures so I was happy here.... More

I spent 5 days in Rio de Janeiro. Arpoador Inn is in a great location in Ipanema (really close to Copacabana). You can do anything from there, there are many buses that take you everywhere, Metro station but the most important is that the people in hotel are really warm and always ready to help you! Breakfast is great and... More

I stayed here for 5 days. Advice: standard room offered on Expedia and the likes is the inside room facing into the wall. If you like very quiet places, this is a room for you. If there is a hint of claustrophobia, then don't book it. I booked a standard room. Unfortunately it was not properly cleaned of which I... More

Well located in front of one of the most beautifull spots in Rio, the beach of Arpoador, the hotel is a must see. Nice breakfest and friendly staff! They are renovating the place and making all effort to make the guests happy, its worth the visit.
