Praia Ipanema has a great location in ipanema beach. If going to brazil, stay in ipanema away from all noisy tourists who are in Copacabana. The rooms in Praia Ipanema are good and simple. Nothing very luxurious really, which is somewhat a disappointment as it is an expensive hotel. The view from the swimming pool in the top floor is... More

Praia Ipanema is a lovely boutique type of hotel. The rooms are basic, but clean and the amenities are very nice, especially the roof deck. PROs: Great location on Ipamena beach - much better that the touristy Copcabana area. The beach is not overly crowded and I found the water much nicer and the crowd just much more fun. The... More

The view from the front and side rooms is amazing. Close to restaurans and bars. Safe area. 2. Personnel: some of the employees were very nice and helpful. Some,... More

I would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The location is excellent, with beautiful views over Ipanema beach. Very close to the hotel are a number of very good bars and restaurants. The rooms are clean and spacious each with a balcony. The roof top terrace and restaurant have... More

location could not be better. Best view in Ipanema, rooms are basic but clean, should change the windows as they can be noisy even on the top floors, staff super friendly, even with the language as a barrier. Beach is right in the front and the city as well. Breakfast can be a bit boring after a couple of days..... More

Praia Ipanema is a decent hotel. The rooms are clean and the amenities are basic. What it lacks in design makes up for in its amazing location. As someone living here, I recommended that my parents stay in Ipanema and avoid the touristy Copcabana area even if it meant scrimping on the hotel. Ipanema gives a better feel for the... More

Excellent location, Very nice rooftop pool as well, Front desk service could be more friendly and accommodating. Service staff were nice. However there was no free wifi... you'd think in today's tech-savvy world it would've been free and inclusive

Loved this hotel, friendly, despite being super busy. Very large, newly renovated rooms. We were on the lower floors with a balcony overlooking the beach, absolutely perfect, didn't mind the noise. Free breakfast, good selection. Love the rooftop pool and view of Ipanema. This hotel is close to close to Leblon, Lagoa, and walking distance to Vinicius area and General... More
