Was very disappointed at my stay here. The rooms are definitely overpriced for what they offer. Toiletries not stocked daily. We used some glasses to drink milk. Two days later the dirty glasses were still on the table. Rooms to not have iron and ironing board. The hotel does not have one that they can send for guests to use.... More

My wife and I have just returned home from 5 nights (should have been 6 but we left early!) at the Praia Ipanema Hotel. This hotel simply just isn't up to scratch. Although there are some good points, they are overshadowed by many bad ones. In a nutshell the pool area is great. A heated pool overlooks Ipanema beach and... More

My family and I travel a lot, and it's only ever to a glamorous and top quality hotel. Driving through Rio at about 10pm, after an 11 hour flight, I exactly didn't see anything that completely fit the bill of 'glamorous', but when we arrived at the Praia Ipanema, I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't take long for us to... More

Excellent location close to Ipanema beach, restaurants and shops. Amazing rooftop terrace with a nice pool and breathtaking views! Very good beach service and friendly hotel staff. The room was spacious and well equipped and we had a stunning view over Ipanema beach from our balcony. The rooftop terrace restaurant is excellent.

Stayed there twice in July, going in and out of Rio to other places. It is a hotel that has an amazing location, but is looking tired. Staff are friendly, and get friendlier if you tip regularly. We always got what we wanted eventually. As to amenities, the pool is roof top, small and boiling hot, and the view is... More

Located on the edge of Ipanema it is perfect for the beach as well as the restaurants and bars of Leblon and Ipanema.the hotel is clean and comfortable...

The location was terrific, the room was fine and the staff were warm and helpful. A special shout out to Dario Goncalves at the front desk. The pool on the roof is lovely with a GREAT view of the ocean and surrounding skyscape, but is limited is size. What stands out is the friendly staff!

We booked Praia Ipanema based on location and some decent reviews. It does have a great location... But after several issues, decided to change hotels. Why?: There were several missteps prior to our 5am arrival (please talk to the overnight front desk guy about being a bit more welcoming). The gentleman who came on at 6 was much better and... More

We didn't stay here, but we came for breakfast. Breakfast was good, staff very friendly, and the view is fantastic! You eat surrounded by windows, and then can go up the stairs to the pool for a better look at the view.
