The hotel is very nice. The food is excellent and the staff is really helpful. I especially enjoyed the roof top bar and those delicious tropical cocktails. My only complaint would be the slow elevators and the lighting in the hallways is a bit strange. They have sensor lights that do not stay on very long.

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Olympic package and were pleasantly surprised. Clean, safe, and central beach location. We arrived at 9:30am from an overnight flight and they kindly let us check our bags and enjoy the rooftop deck and pool before our 2pm check in. Wifi spotty one day but otherwise no complaints.

Comfortable 4 star hotel. Good location right on Ipanema beach quieter than Copacabana and surrounded by good eating places. Definitely ask for an ocean view. Good breakfast buffet. Nice restaurant (though more exciting ones locally to choose from). Rooftop heated swimming pool is small but fun - with rooftop bar overlooking Ipanema beach and the two brothers mountain. Efficient laundry.... More

I will never forget this hotel. Very good location, friendly staff, nice rooms, and good chocolate treats! I stayed here for a week during the Semana Santa. I was lucky to have a room overlooking the beautiful Ipanema beach. By the time, you can see hundreds of red umbrella, the view of the beach, and the mountain!

Enjoyed the stay at Sol Ipanema. Had 2 rooms, nice views, comfortable, safe and secure. The location was nice, and convenient. Restaurants and shopping within a few blocks walking. Great beach, although the nonstop stream of people selling things to you gets a little old. The hotel had all the beach items you could want, chairs, towels, umbrellas, included (I... More

The rooms were quite nice, but nothing fancy. Well-located with views from the dining room of the Ipanema beach. Unfortunately, it rained cats and dogs the three days we were there so we mostly saw waves and few swimmers. The dining room was quite good, service was good and food well prepared. The neighborhood was very interesting, lots of good... More
