A nice hotel in a perfect location. Very good breakfast! The bar on the roof by the tinny swimming pool is a great place to see the sunset in Ipanema! The drinks were well done, tasty and beautiful. The room in the 2nd floor gave us the feeling of being just on the beach while looking throw the window! It... More

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

The goodness began at check-in: There was about 30 seconds of confusion over my reservation date because I was checking-in the day *after* my reservation began; the concierge apologized for the confusion and then, to make up for it, upgraded my room to one with a beach view. This seemed an incredibly generous response to such a minor issue, but... More

Convenient at the mid point of Ipanema Beach. Older hotel, average sized rooms , elevators a little slow, and some minor maintenance issues (eg , shower tile grout) but overall very clean. The restaurant is the crown jewel (definitely overstaffed for the morning breakfast buffet) and they do a nice job of it. The staff are outstanding and this makes... More

The location is one the best features of this hotel. The beach is right across the street and good restaurants are within a short walking distance. We found the staff to be very friendly and attentive to our requests. The rooftop pool is a relaxing option to spend some time and has spectacular views. (see picture) Also, there is an... More

We just returned from a week at the Sol Ipanema. We were in Rio for the marathon. The hotel was great. The location is perfect as it is right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to several restaurants. The staff was very helpful.

Overated room vs Price Windows not sound proof so even on top floors you can hear the noise from the traffic in the morning.They need double pane Windows! Not soundproof between room walls also... The rest is fine, room clean, modern, good service, swimming pool in renovation so I did not check. Great Italian restaurant in the hotel.
