Excellent location

Great location, clean and good service
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel. It is in a great location, modern city centre hotel, close to Ipanema beach, can catch bus to sugar loaf outside hotel, on main shopping street, devassa restaurant serves good food and beer. Only negative point is that the windows aren't double glazed and I was woken by the traffic and late night drinkers in devassa several nights as I had a room on the second floor. Try and book a room higher up.

ipanema is a quite nice, very near beach

good location, very near beach, provide tower and buffet breakfast
it is a fair hotel, near to the beach, and not far with the airport, though it is a little bit difficult to the subway, it is quite an old and small one, but still comfortable and worth it.

Ipanema is hot

Location, staff & Ipanema
The hotel was to expectation, not too fancy but served in purpose. Clean room and bath with a comfortable enough bed. Location is great too (not comparing those with beach front views) with easy access to resturants and supermarkets. There's some shopping too but if you are in Ipanema, likely you are there for the beach which was amazing.

Great location, classy hotel

The location was fantastic, just 2 blocks from Ipanema beach. The rooms were spacious, well set out and nicely decorated.
The staff were really friendly, the breakfast was buffet next door at Devazza cafe - very busy on the weekend but really nice food. The staff helped with organising a transfer to the airport, and were happy to answer all our questions.

Great location with a fabulous restaurant

Very clean & safe area
The location was ideal. Front desk people spoke good english and the place was very safe. The restaurant in the hotel serves great tasting food with reasonable prices. The room that we had was spacious with very clean bathroom. Though it was beside the street, noise was to a minimum. The place is just a block away from ipanema beach & the crowd you see are upscale. If you are on a convention, the taxi ride will be between 25-28 reas. If i have the chance to come back to rio, i would definitely stay at the same place.

Very Nice Hotel

Good Sized Room,
mar ipanema is in a very good location - 2 blocks from the beautiful ipanema beach - we even walked up to copacabana beach from there in less than 30 minutes along the beach front. breakfast is good in the restaurant next door. nice sized rooms, good showers. one downside is that as we werent leaving rio until 5pm and check out is at 12 sharp, there was nowhere for us to shower or change other than the toilet of the neighbouring restaurant. would be nice if they could arrange a small room to change and shower in for those not wiling to pay the 'huge' late check-out fee.
