Ipanema
Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue. The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing many art galleries that show contemporary art. There is also a great variety of nightlife in the neighbourhood, which buzzes with many options for every taste.

Hotel is very clean. Almost all the staff including cleaning ladies are capable of english. We decided to stay longer then planned - they helped us and its appreciated. Cool range to beach, great minibar and fridge. Someone was "thinking" setting those rules. The only issue was laundry service, when we have been told its included - and later i found price list. ATM at lobby is appreciated.

Panama City, Panama2 contributions1 helpful vote
The hotel has a great locations but the beds are tiny and the rooms are noisy. Breakfast was good. For the price I think they need to improve the customer service, specially in the front desk. Not all customers speak portuguese and they were not patient with us when trying to understand our doubts. To be fair, just one guy in particular was the rude one.

I just spent 3 days in Rio for a meeting and had a great hotel experience. I found The Sol de Ipanema online and was skeptical at first because the price was higher than many others but after I had a wonderful welcome at the desk a When I arrived, I even had a free caipirinha and a 20% discount. The whole staff very helpful and very fun..had many fun conversations with them improving my Portuguese and also helpful setting up tours and giving advice for places to go and things to do. The hotel is in front of Ipanema beach in a beautiful area. I never felt insecure there. 24 hour front desk working on our needs. The hotel provides one of the best breakfast we ever had in South America, also served in our room with beautiful flowers) and evening drinks, lounge at the pool, with the best internet conection, and more. Met some great people from all over the world there mainly due to high season. Beds were clean and nice, big towels provided, clean bathrooms. I am not sure of the pricing for normal times of the year as January was clearly higher but i believe it is the same price range as other hotels, and finding one just off the beach is quite hard. I really recommend it. I actually was quite sad to leave it this morning!
