We had a great stay here. We stayed 5 nights during our stay in Rio. We chose Sol Ipanema because we wanted to be in Ipanema, and the closest to the beach as possible, and this was it! The location is perfect. The hotel is across the street from the beach, right in front of Posto 9, which is a great part of Ipanema. The hotel provides umbrellas, towels, and beach chairs for guest use every day, you just check them out and walk them over and bring them back. The hotel was nice, clean, inviting. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The front desk staff spoke Portuguese and English, I also believe they spoke Spanish. The breakfast was nice. We are both vegan and we were able to eat toast and fruit every morning which was fine for us. Our room was actually large and really comfortable. The bed was nice, the bathroom was a bit small and tight, but you are in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world in Rio!, so I didn't expect spacious rooms here :) The air conditioning worked really well (we went in the middle of the summer). The roof deck is tiny, and we didn't use the pool (it was super small), but we did sit up there one evening for a little bit. We felt safe, they had staff 24/hours a day, and it is so walkable. There were several restaurants (many, many vegan ones if that matters to you!) within walking distance, stores (Leblon is about a 15 minute walk away with nice shops), and a supermarket about 3 blocks away. You can walk to Copa from here as well. I am really glad we stayed here during our trip to Rio, and I would absolutely stay again.

Perfectly located hotel for our Ipanema stay! The staff was very kind and allowed us to check in hours early after an overnight flight. They provide free umbrellas, chairs and towels for the beach as well as a nice breakfast. Overall a lovely place to call home for a few days in Rio!

overall the experience was very good. I appreciated a lot the variety of the local fruit, and the many choice from the salty to the sweet things. Our room was good and like it the view from the roof top. Just an advice: At the rooftop i wasn't so confident to stay near the glass railing cause was broke in some point.

We are very grateful to the staff for offering us early check in after an overnight flight. Reception were friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was good with a beautiful view. But…Rooftop pool and terrace is tiny and unimpressive. Generally, the photos of this hotel are not accurate. It is a very old hotel which I believe is more 2 stars. The location is great but you are better off paying the same nightly rate for a much better hotel a few blocks back from the beach. Ipanema is a wonderful area and there is no need to pay a premium for a beachfront hotel.

One of the best locations in Rio. Friendly staff, breakfast was Ok. Rooms were kept clean. Teo problems made me down rank this hotel: The elevators: this is a 90 room hotel of 15 floors. The two elevators serve the guests as well of the staff. We stayed 8 nights a the hotel. During 4 of them- one of the elevator broke down. The hotel was fully booked. 45 minutes wait for an elevator ride. The management saved money on elevator maintenance, not giving a damn on the guests. To be honest-after complaining we got one day off the bill. No lobby. Nowhere to receive anyone: this is not a 4 star hotel.

Very good location, very helpful staff, especially the front desk people, always eager to provide assistance, even at ad hoc cases. Breakfast provided variety. Cleaning services need improvement. I thoroughly recommend for families due to, safe, centrally location.

Well located hotel on Ipanema beachfront, opposite posto 9. Hotel and rooms were clean and well kept, but the rooms were a bit dated and there was a strange smell (in the two rroms that we had on different floors). Buffet breakfast was adequate. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Overall, not a bad option if you want a place to stay that's on the beach at Ipanema, but look elsewhere if strange smells bother youl

I had an excellent experience. Check-in and check-out were seamless. Staff was friendly and helpful. While elevators can be a bit slow, this was not a major issue. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Importantly, housekeeping staff were always available and my room was always kept cleaned and refreshed daily. Access to the beach and use of chair provided by the hotel was an added bonus. I recommend and will return.

A great location, with sunning views across Ipanema Beach from the rooftop bar and even of Christ the Redeemer from a distance. Rooms with a view across the beach are jaw dropping. The rooftop pool and bar is the highlight. Our room which was expensive was fine, though the safe failed to work and locked in our valuables each day! On the downside, reception could often not cope with the number of guest requests and had a little bit of an unhelpful attitude. They refused to honour our request for a room with a higher floor, after they had made a mistake with our friend's room. The staff at breakfast worked absolutely tirelessly which was great but the breakfast itself turned into a feeding frenzy most mornings because of the layout and way it was organised. Overall a good hotel to stay though not perfect for the price.
