“The best hotel in Rio!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Where do i start... wow i loved staying in this hotel! The rooftop bar/swimming pool is unforgettable with the most unbelievable views. I adore the crisp & sleek design of the Fasano hotels and this did not disappoint. Service at times (apart from Reception) was very slow and a little lazy which is why I am not granting my review five stars. This definitely has room for improvement.

Whilst we were staying in the hotel One Direction were also staying there and the number of girls screaming outside the hotel was ridiculous at times! I know this is not an every day occurrence but it did disrupt the every day paying guest...

The hotel is ideally located on the Ipanema beach front. Every staff member I interacted with went out of their way to please and to be helpful. The rooftop area has the most gorgeous view of the Dos Irmãos Mountains on the western side of the beach.

The Baretto lounge is a cool place to have cocktails and listen to vibey music later in the evening.
The complimentary flip flops in the room in lieu of slippers was a lovely unique touch. The room however had no sea view unless going to the very end of the balcony. It faced a grey wall of the next building! I found the room design rather strange and impractical too (as with the lobby of the hotel), plus only a shower in the bathroom (no bath). Be sure to check your room location and design to avoid disappointment.

I can't wait for another excuse to come back to Rio and stay in this hotel. The decorations are very modern, the room was quiet and the location is OTIMO, right across the street from lovely Ipanema beach. My favorite part by far, though, was the shower--water pressure to die for. The hotel is expensive, true, but worth the splurge if you can afford it. The bed was also very comfortable. My only real complaint was that the room was quite dark--great for atmosphere but not great for getting work done.

My father and I stayed here last year and absolutely loved it!
The restaurant and wine list was superb. And the roof top was amazing.
Great salon and I loved the fact you had a hairdresser on site.
It was the little touches, such as the flip flops, that made this place so great.
Would stay again.

This is a fairly new and trendy hotel in RJ located right in front of the beach. I am not a big fan of the Philippe Starck design but I guess it goes well with the hotel. The roof top is amazing and I would say it's the highlight of the hotel and the place to be. The breakfast is very good. But the service is not as good as Fasano Sao Paulo.
