The accusation of you smoking in the hotel is really high. They simply slap you with the fine based on the housekeeper and hotel manager smell bud. One word of advice - please do not open your window if you are staying at the low floors, those people smoking below will get you into trouble.

Absolutely adored this hotel. Has a boutique hotel feel. Excellent location for shopping and getting a local vibe. Can't say much about their breakfast bar, but since they are on a pretty busy street you can always pick up something at one of the local food joints. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. The rooms are small but nicely... More

It's not a big hotel with a very good localization. The room size is comfortable, very clean, same for the bathroom . White and nice towels. The breakfast is served at the corner room (same place called "Devassa" at noon and night : bar and restaurant).

There is only one thing I didn't like at Mar Ipanema Hotel - the average cleanliness. The location was fantastic (good neighborhood and very close to the beach) , the breakfast excellent and the staff quite ok.

This place was great value for Rio which is super expensive. Location is brilliant, right in middle of shops and good restaurants. Good nightlife near by. Very near beach, ipanema beach is much nicer than copacabana, settle in for the day and have drinks and food on the beach. The rooms are small but neat, clear and bright and modern.... More

Stayed here a couple of times while visiting Rio. It's just a couple of blocks to Ipanema Beach which is my favorite in Rio. I loved the location since it's located on a busy street in Rio with great restaurants, bars and nightlife. You can walk to Copacabana and every Sunday the main road in front of Ipanema Beach is...

Comfortable room, clean, very nice view at the rooftop (decent brand new gym, spa and a bar to drink something with the view), amazing breakfast at Armazém Devassa, a trendy Pub/Restaurant (attached to the hotel) with many different bottled and crafted beers.

I loved this hotel. It wasn't about a fancy room, or over-the-top service, but it felt like RIO. It felt authentic. It was near the beach and we had access to a beach chair and umbrella. We could walk to the beach. The service was outstanding. We even went on the tour to favelas that the front desk encouraged us... More

Stayed at the Mar Ipanema for 8 days during April. Great position for beach, restaurants and shops. The room was compact but very clean and a great powerful shower.
