The location is unbeatable! We stayed 5 nights and were very happy with the hotel and it's great location. The Devassa bar downstairs was a good surprise for us, we enjoyed very much the lively atmosphere there. Only one thing to be improved is the housekeeping. Everyday we came from the beach around 4 pm and the room was still... More

From arriving hours early during the highest season (Carnaval 2015) and still allowing me to check in, to attending to the smallest need, offering every service you could need, even after we had checked out, the manager and staff went the extra mile to make us feel special. I wouldn't necessarily say this is a solid 4 star hotel, only... More

Great location within walking distance of great restaurants, beaches and shops. The staff were wonderful and very fluent in English. The rooms are extremely clean and nice. Each day when we returned from the beach not only had housekeeping cleaned the room, but folded our clothes and tidied up everything. I've never been to a hotel that went so far... More

We had a lovely stay at Mar Ipanema. The location was perfect! Good breakfast. Every day we picked up beach chairs and headed down to the beach. Back at the hotel it was very refreshing with a glass of cold apple or fruit flavored water. The room was small but just right, clean and the mattress great. The restaurant was... More

This hotel was very central for our stay, one block from Sterns and two blocks from the beach with no busy and wide roads to cross, unlike Copacabana. The staff were attentive, rooms clean, water for showers ample and bed comfortable. The Devassa restaurant just next door supplies breakfast (buffet style) and their evening meals were plentiful, we had fillet... More

We’ve stayed for 10 nights. Superior Double. Our Room was fairly small and not necessarily 4 * on first sight, but knowing the Rio standards bit more now, have to say I was quite happy to be staying at this hotel. The location is just the best, felt right at home, many good restaurants, bars, shops in the neighborhood. Just... More

The staff was helpful. The hotel structure is great (except it doesn't have a swimming pool and the breakfast is in the restaurant Devassa, also open to the outside public). The rooms + bathrooms were recently remodeled. The hotel location is really nice.

This hotel is well located in Ipanema, two blocs from the beach and near everything you might need for a week in Rio. Is a little bit far from downtown and many attractions but is nearby very atractive bars, lounges, restaurants and nightclubs - the hotel restaurant is a renowed local beer house (Devassa). The room is small, air conditioning... More
