We had a room on the 15th floor with a side view of the beach which was good. However, the room was well in need of a full renovation. The bath was a yellow plastic like bath with a shower over. It was very dirty along with the tiles. The grout between the tiles was moldy and looked dirty and uncleaned. The room had a tiled floor and when you removed your shoes it was sticky and felt dirty. After experiencing the feel of the room we found a cleaner and showed her the problems in the room and went out. On our return the bath and the floor of the room had been cleaned but still looked dirty.We found the staff friendly and helpful and the hotel was in a great location.
We would not recommend staying at this Hotel.

Room Tip: A clean modern room if there is any.

I stayed here for 2 nights after staying at the Hotel Vermont (around the corner) as part of a tour. This hotel was infinitely better. Very friendly, welcoming service on arrival. I had a room on the 15th floor which meant I had great views of the beach from the window. Hotel Vermont was cheaper, but really quite poor quality.

On the 17th floor was a gorgeous rooftop pool which got some good sun throughout the day. Caipirinhas were strong and very nice from the bar up here. On the final day, the hotel was very accommodating as I wasn't flying til late at night - they let me use the pool all day and their beach service (towels / umbrellas) if I wanted. I also decided to treat myself to lunch at the Opium restaurant which has an Asian theme. I had an amazing sushi platter for just 25 Reals which was a real bargain for the quality of food.

Definitely recommend this hotel - can't get a better location in Rio, beach, shops and restaurants all seconds away, and worth paying a bit more to have a pool and roof terrace.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the top of the building as the view of Ipanema and surroundings is more sp...

The best thing you can get from there it is the service; the rest has a “high level” status of three stars hotel.

Do you want/need fancy sheets, fancy pillows and a fancy beach view balcony? Then I will recommend you the Fasano Hotel, which is right next to it.

The hotel has a small hall, rooms look old fashioned and in the details the rooms look over-aged sometimes. Food is asiatic in lunch and dinner times but this is a welcome change! The bar is too small inside but no need: you can go to the Davassa bar opposite with nice waiters.
The hotel offers a space and chairs/towels on the beach. The rood terrace has a small pool and fitness space and and a very small bar.

Great hotel and great location a block from the beach.....terrific views on upper floors to the sea.
Also, great for eating out locally and ease of going out in the evenings.
The hotel also has a good Asian restaurant and breakfast possibilities are almost endless.
Rooms are a bit tired but clean and well maintained.
In Rio this hotel is great value!

Room Tip: Go as high as possible for the views

I stayed at Ipanema Plaza in July 2010. I was traveling by myself and what I liked the most about the hotel was the location, 2 blocks from the beach and literally in the middle of many restaurants and cafes, and also at walking distance from Copacabana, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, and shopping malls. The area is one of the safest in Rio and I always felt totally at ease walking around at every hour of the day, even at night, considering in July it gets dark around 5 pm. The hotel is well kept, and the staff is very polite and helpful. I have never seen a bigger bed than the one my room had, I'm serious, it went beyond any California King size I've ever seen! The bathroom was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of luxury or contemporary look, but definitely clean and more than acceptable. When I go back to Rio (and I know I will!) I would have no problem staying here again. When I went in 2010 the price had been in my opinion more than fair for the kind of quality and treatment I received.

This must have been our ninth year at this hotel, the main reason being the location half a block from the beach and walking distance to several restaurants and shops. But location isn't the only reason. True, Brasil has become more expensive in recent years and that has applied to hotel prices in particular and with the Olympics and World Cup coming up this trend is bound to continue, but all things considered the IP is still good value for money compared with other hotels. Some comments:
Front Desk and concierge: Courteous, friendly and efficient.
Rooms: Good size, comfortable beds.
Bathroom in need of refurbishment but great shower.
Internet: Wifi available in room and worked well (unlike last year!)
Restaurant:Good lunch/dinner menu. . Good breakfast but very busy at weekends.
Beach service: Umbrellas tend to be taken by 10 am at weekends. Need more.
Breakfast and umbrella comments may be due to busy Easter weekend.
To summarise: A very enjoyable stay. Shall return
