Location of the hotel is very nice, just on Ipanema beach. The staff and the service were excellent. Also Breakfast was enough for me even I know some people would maybe like to get more variety. All in all I can highly recommend this place.

We stayed at the hotel for the third time, but also the first one since the renewal. The staff is so very kind and helpful, the room so comfortable! We had a cot specially fixed for our baby, with baby bath products and fruits. Breakfast at Hotel Arpoador isn't only delicious but has the best view. Hope to return soon!

I didn't get a view, but the room was clean if small-ish, the staff was great and the location was superlative. If I go back to Rio i might stay in Leblon, but otherwise here. Decent wifi. Good restaurant and exceptional breakfast with a patio on the beach.

We didn't stay here but I couldn't work out how to just review the restaurant. The food was amazing as were the caiprinhas. We sat at a table outside watching the waves roll in on Ipanema beach. We spent a very relaxing couple of hours here.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It's the only one which doesn't have a big street between it and the beach. The sea view up at least on 5th floor is best. Breakfast is in a gorgeous setting inside or out. great people watching Dinner there is first rate as well. Near metro and buses. Towels and...

Firstly, as other reviewers have noted, the location of this hotel is amazing. It is directly facing Ipanema beach, and the breakfast is served on a terrace right on the beach. This location is the reason I decided to book a room at this hotel for my first night in Brazil. It was my first trip to South America- a...

Great little hotel with Awesum staff and good food. Very comfortable and clean and the only hotel that's right on the beach, in Rio. The bellboy Edwan is so cool and the restaurant guys like Leandro makes you feel like a friend. They try hard to converse in English which is a rare trait in Brazil. This was our second...

This hotel is truly a gem on the beaches of Rio. The only property on the entire Copacabana and Ipanema with a terrace right on the beach. Only 50 rooms make this a fairly small and quiet hotel, but with the perfect location and great service, it's tough to get anything better than this in Rio. A great team makes...

We had a terrific stay, we loved it so much, we stayed twice when we were in Rio. Maicon & Sheila on the fron desk couldn't have offered a more professional & friendly service. We really recommend for you to stay here. Awesome views of Ipanema beach & the sound of the waves. Get a room with sea views. Well...
