Mar Ipanema is possibly at the best location in Rio if you are staying for vacation. Three blocks south, you are in Ipanema beach; five blocks north, you will be by the lagoon; several blocks west, there is a mall in Leblon area (and there is the famous bakery Kurt); and walking to the east, you can reach the Copacabana...

The hotel has a perfect location, just two blocks away from the Ipanema beach. The staff is kind, helpful and attentive. the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. But, there were some negative points. Even though we were in a high floor, we could hear noise coming from the street. Moreover, the air-conditioner made loud noise, making our... More

This is a well located hotel with lovely, modern amenities (swimming pool, gym and a proper steam sauna) and solid room quality. Breakfast was plentiful with good selection of fresh juices, some fruit, bread, cakes, scrambled eggs etc. I give it a 5 star rating for Rio in the same price range. It seems to be a popular hotel for... More

Stayed here during our first trip to Rio for 5 nights in a superior room on the 4th floor. Room was a good size, clean and well lit. Showers were very powerful also. Great breakfasts served in the restaurant next door and a very helpful front desk. Good views from the roof top terrace bar also. Best thing about this... More

The hotel has a wonderful location, the staff is kind, the room and bathroom aren't big, but have everything you need and are comfortable and clean. Breakfast is OK. There is a bar and a small gym in the rooftop. Nice view.

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).
