Fasano gets great reviews of course for such a great city as Rio there is not competition at all .Hospitality beeing very poor in Brazil. Location on Ipanéma is great of course..Reception staff is ok. But the hôtel is not as everybody says designed by Stark..he did not get along and left the project, it was done by one of his ex designer. So the curtains in the entrance are alwfull..the lobby with a lack of colour. The italian restaurant is ok but nothing special . the deluxe rooms are fine with the wood but the bathroom has no bath only a shower..The corridors are not well kept and smell humidity.. The rooftop bar and pool has beautiful view..but the pool is never cleaned and although full of stains as it has not been re-painted in a long time. The staff does'nt speak English ..and there is definitely a lack of training. We stayed there 7 nights in december and have never seen any management around..and it is supposed to be a busy period as far as we know..( but with around 60 rooms don't tell me they do not have the time to take care of their guests ) The bar upstairs closes at 10pm..and if you want to have a drink after dinner you have to go at the back downstairs where they make a big story to let you in even if you are a guest at the hôtel ..They offered us the promise of some service to be able to be organized on the beach..but it seemed so complicated that we forgot about it.. Well there is not really another boutique on the beach in Rio ... So THEIR PRICES ARE CRAZY.. but the price value is absolutely not there..and do not tell me that this is Brazil..and not easy.. because there is time to find another excuse.

The Fasano, RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE BEACH, is lovely and the staff is incredible. They arranged private tours and reservations at the best places in town. The food from the restaurant was great, and the rooms (while a touch small and oddly shaped) were always clean and comfortable. The area couldn't be nicer, and I highly recommend it. The pool is, needless to say, incredible.

We spent five nights at Hotel Fasano over Christmas. it was absolutely fantastic. The location is perfect. The pool deck and view are stunning. The service was terrific - from Julia and Max at the concierge desk (who went out of their way every time we spoke to them and were warm and welcoming) to the front desk staff (shout-out to Brito who bent over backwards to be sure we enjoyed our stay) to the pool crew. The staff helped us with everything from restaurant reservations, to bicycle rentals, to tour guides (ask for Marco, he was fantastic) to picking up medicine at the drug store and delivering it to our room.

We've travelled all over the world and have been lucky enough to stay in some of the best hotels and the Fasano is right up there on every count.

A few more things...

-The ocean-front rooms are worth the extra money, they're bigger and the views are amazing; we had one of each, one "courtyard" and one ocean-front and there is a significant difference
-The beach is lovely although it gets crowded - there is great beach service via the hotel (chairs, water, umbrellas)
-Nothing is cheap - if you are price-sensitive this isn't the hotel for you
-The experience - the hotel and Rio in general - for our family at least, was priceless

And don't forget you need a visa to travel to Brazil from the US! We had friends who had to cancel their trip because they didn't get visas. Ugh.

Looking forward to a return visit to Rio and to the Fasano.

In Rio de Janeiro there are two hotels top level: Fasano in Ipanema and Copacabana Palace in Copacabana. The best location is Ipanema, smaller, safer, nicer. Fasano is brand new, well designed, stilish, modern, hip, trendy. Small rooms, maybe overpriced, but forget it, you are in the best place of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Compared to this money is nothing. The swimming pool on 8th floor rooftop is remarcable, it leaves you breathless.

This hotel has a wonderful location right on Ipanema beach. The front desk was welcoming, wonderful in fact. A basket of fresh fruit awaited which was a relief after a long flight. The room had a terrible view however (of a back alley, into a courtyard) which is the only negative. The hotel explained they were full to capacity which is completely understandable.
