Sol ipanema has a good location facing the beach. It's a 3 stars hotel not more so I found it expensive to what it offered me. The staff is mediocre and cleanness too. Breakfast was just ok but the restaurant was good.

Good location on Ipanema. Staff helpful and courteous. Comfortable room with view of beach on 7th floor. Breakfast great with view of beach. Cocktail bar and snacks also nice although situated at entrance to Hotel, so not very private.

We loved this hotel and always returned, but today both lifts are out of order and all they can do is say they can put us on a lower floor than the 15th. Just a joke and an embarrassment to the wonderful city of Rio. If people stop staying here they will have to sort this problem once and for...

The staff of the Sol Ipanema Hotel are very sorry for the guest's dissatisfaction and sincerely apologizes for the difficulties they experienced with elevators during the stay. We would like to point out that the maintenance of the hotel elevators is maintained by a long-standing contract with Atlas Schindler, manufacturer of elevators and world-wide giant in the sector, but that...

The room was clean and of decent size, the bathroom a bit small. Had to close the door all the way to sit on the toilet. The only real problem is the thin walls. I couldn't fall asleep because I would hear whatever the person in the room next to me would be watching on TV. And the AC was...

The breakfast here is really good - best I've had on my trip so far. The room rate isn't great value given that the hotel is a little tired and in need of some updating. However staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The pool is tiny - don't be fooled by the photos on their website! Great location with...

I've seen a few reviews on this hotel, most of them good.

My oceanfront room was great, but the staff at this hotel was even better. I got freaked out about some bug bites and they helped me find the pharmacy and translated some Portuguese to help me.

I stayed here for 3 weeks working during the Olympics. Could not have been happier. Clean rooms, comfy bed, great shower and delicious breakfast.

“Rooms face either the beach (the view you want) or the back (the view you don't want). Higher up = quieter, better view.”
