The only good thing about this place is the location. A couple minutes walking distance from the beach. We stayed here during the world cup. The prices were ridiculously high. Rooms were dated. The towels were terrible quality. Beds were uncomfortable. The breakfast was disappointing. They had the windows open in our room when we checked in so there were... More

I am not saying do not stay here. If you have never been to Rio, just know that you are paying a lot more here and getting less. This $220 dollar room would go for $100 in most other Brazil cities. Location is fabulous, just blocks from the beach (post 10, perfect) and blocks to the lagoon. 7 blocks to... More

Had to stay for an overnight due to early appointment in Rio. Did not like the smell, the reception team was fast and objective. The room is tiny, did not look clean at all and the towels seemed to be used causing a very bad impression. Bathroom also extremely small and smelled dirty.

Most hotels in Rio we have stayed in have not been great, even if 4 stars or more.... This is no exception. At 4 stars you would expect more. Arrived with 5 suitcases and the security and door man were a smoking and did not help us out of the cab, not unusual for Brasil so oh well. Room was... More

We stayed just one night at Mar Ipanema. The hotel location is excellent, a couple of blocks off the beach near good restaurants, bars and shopping. The rooftop bar does offer great views, but is very tiny. We had great interactions with the staff, who were all friendly and helpful. The room was fine, but a just little but shabby,... More

I stayed here with my partner recently for a week during the World Cup. The double room we had was very spacious. The bed and pillows were comfy, air con was good, TV a reasonable size and had a mini bar with some very cheaply priced water- less than £1 each. The bathroom was also pretty big. There was no...

Good location in Central Ipanema, close to the Ipanema beach and Lagoa. Close to shops and restaurants. Very nice restaurant and roof top bar at the hotel. Very friendly staff. The rooms are nice with TV and AC.

I stayed at the Mar Ipanema in a standard room for a week in March 2014. Everything about this hotel is fantastic. The room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. The A/C worked well and was not too noisy. The bathroom was a good size. It has a nice rooftop lounge area with great views of the hills. The location... More

The Mar Ipanema hotel was perfect for our 3-night stay in Rio. The location is ideal--it's a short walk to Ipanema Beach, and to the lagoon--the price is reasonable, and the service is impeccable. For example, our luggage failed to make it on our flight and the airline (TAM) promised to deliver it to the hotel. When the luggage didn't... More
