I recently stayed here and to be honest it is not worth the money. The breakfast was poor, the place was dirty, the bedroom was full of old bedding and an old TV set and the bathroom was very very small. This is my first experience of Rio and it was not a good one. We had to leave early... More

Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip to Rio. The airline I booked my flight with was gracious enough to refund at least 85% of my total cost. This was not the case with Felipe, the owner of Ipanema B&B. After receiving my email informing him that I had to cancel my trip, he emailed me back stating that he... More

The location is unbeatable....2 blocks from Ipanema Beach and the b&b is one block away from all the best restaurants and shopping in the city. You'll definitely feel safe here. We paid about $90 USD a night. Hotels in Ipanema are known to be expensive, so this was a good bargain for the location. Breakfast was standard - cheese, ham,... More

we stayed 5 nights. the location is great and the price and the breakfast is ok. the owners speak english but don't really care about the customers. the only thing that really annoyed us was that the promised driver didn't show up twice so we had to take a taxi from the street at 6 am.

I spent 5 days in August, and was very happy to be here because I was so close to the beach, to the lagoon, and to restaurants and the nice neighborhood of Leblon. I came here alone, so it was nice to have the host's help when I had a question about where to go or what to do. Breakfast... More

The B and B is in a fantastic location with all the restaurants, bars and the beach right on your doorstep. The guys who run the place are very nice but pretty disinterested. The flat itself is lovely but poorly cleaned. We had to ask for a new towel as it was dirty as was the floor mat which clearly... More

We stayed there in mid July. Felipe was very nice but left for vacation the night we arrived. We were in the apartment with his mother who was super nice. We don't speak too much Portuguese but she was patient and helped us with directions and other things. For instance, we tried to reserve hang gliding but were having trouble... More

The B&B is in fact a small apartment (3 guest rooms 2 with ensuite bathrooms 1 with bathroom in the corridor). The location is great (heart of Ipanema 1 block from the beach) but it is simply dirty. You can mention that it needs urgent modernization and that things do not dry in the apartment (and we have stayed here... More

Mid June, 2012. We called and asked Felipe (Ipanema Inn)—IN ENGLISH—if we could SEE the room. Felipe was very polite and professional.  He explained that he was unavailable to show us a room, but that his mother would meet us there.  When we arrived, I addressed the mother in Portuguese.  Although I am a US citizen, I am PERFECTLY bilingual....
