Everything in Rio de Janerio is, unfortunately, terribly expensive right now. That shouldn't deter one from visiting this amazing, beautiful, incredibly vibrant city. But it is a factor to consider. In the case of hotels, it means you may find yourself staying in what in any other city would be a very modest, functional, no-frills hotel, and still paying a... More

I have mixed feelings about the Mar Ipanema Hotel. The location is excellent and although the hotel has been modernised, it has clearly been done on the cheap and there are some areas that need improvement. We were checked in during the evening by a gentleman who was a bit cold - a warmer welcome would have given us a... More

Only 1 night stay here before we flew home. It's location is great. Perfect actually - located in Ipanema, a block back from the beach. It is close to Shopping Leblon and close to the Lagoa. The hotel offers everything is should do and a great breakfast in the bar next door, which at night does good drinks and decent... More

Stayed in Rio in March after carnival and found this hotel via TripAdvisor. It's in a lovely location in Ipanema, quiet yet near enough to the beach, bars and restaurant. The rooms are big enough (I was in 405) with a fantastic shower, LCD TV and a huge comfortable bed. Definitely go up to the 11 floor as the view... More

Decent hotel in a good, safe area. Some very nice restaurants around it. Great breakfast, clean and decent sized rooms and staff that are pleasant and helpful. Two blocks from the beach but no tacky tourist junk shops around which is nice. Went to the beach each evening for fresh coconut drink and watched the fun on the beach. Would... More

This is a very clean hotel located 2 blocks from Ipanema Beach. Breakfast included next door that is a buffet style with quite a few choices, eggs, toast, lots of fruit cereal, etc. Convenient for a great cold beer in the evenings. Good food at all times of the day. Rooms are not large but quite comfortable with newer bathrooms,... More

Average hotel but magnificent location to see the whole of Rio from. Enjoyed its cleanness and found it an ideal base to explore Rio and see the sights from. Its a five minute walk to Ipanema and about a 12 minute walk to Cocapana Beach

The Mar Ipanema Hotel has a lot going for it. It is 2 blocks north from Ipanema beach, and thus quiet. It is 2 blocks south from leafy streets and 'classy' retaurants. It has 24 hour security - which can be important to a lot of folks concerned about the horrendous stories of violent crime in Rio. And it has... More
