We booked at this hotel for our return to Rio after a 4 week holiday after passing it and calling in during an earlier stay during the Olympics. The earlier stay had been disappointing but Hotel Arpoador has a unique position on the end of Ipanema beach close to the fort. It has tables on the prom and overlooks the... More

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for our 5-day visit to Rio after reading positive reviews on here. It did not disappoint! First, Hotel Arpoadar is optimally located; we were able to walk along the boardwalk (immediately adjacent to the restaurant patio) and straight onto Ipanema Beach (no need to duck car traffic on the busy boulevard), easily catch...

A very friendly hotel in a great spot, right on Ipanema Beach. Loved eating breakfast outside overlooking the beach. Great place for people watching. Staff were very attentive and friendly, most spoke some broken English. Very comfortable beach, good shower. A little noise from the rooms above and beside.

A friend and I were looking for a nice chill place to have a sunset brunch before her departure. What a better place than Arpoador Hotel?! The light was great so we decided to enjoy sunset from here and it was the best idea ever. We had an amazing sunset late lunch accompanied by a lovely live music. We couldn't... More

First we booked a room without sea view, so the room was not so nice. We just could see other windows from the hotel, no sky, no tree. So we asked if we could change the room. They were very friendly and organized for us a new room for the next day with sea view. The room was very big... More

This place is reasonably priced for Rio, and it's a steal for the location right at the nexus of Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The staff is professional, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were a little small and barebones minimal, especially if, like me, you weren't able to get an ocean facing room, but they were quiet and clean, and the... More

This is a very good unfussy hotel with probably the best location in Rio at the end of Ipanema and walking distance to Copacabana, but on the beach with only a small service road in front not a two lane highway as most others have. Breakfast is super and we ate there one night and that was good too. Service... More
