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

stayed here during Carnival 2014, we had a great stay. Nice toiletries, ice cold Air con, lovely and helpful staff. Very clean and great wifi. We never made it to breakfast...:) lovely roof top terrace. would have been perfect if it had a pool but the beach is steps away! Rooms are very quiet.

No carpet! I love that. Natura brand shampoo, conditioner and soap, excellent. They are 2 blocks from the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and also 2 blocks from Ipanema beach (posto 10). They have chairs, towels, and umbrellas available all day. The price is fair, it's Rio, though. The restaurant for breakfast is a signature pub at night. On the top... More

The location is really amazing and loved the fact that they provide beach chairs (ask at the front). 2/3 blocks from Ipanema beach and awesome restaurants to walk to. However, the room was extremely small, especially the bathroom. I was disappointed with the cleaning for most days. I must have brought some sand in from the beach and it was... More
