Location is excellent

Location, breakfast, view
Overall a good stay. The location and the view are priceless. They have a nice breakfast included too. Some problems with the room but overall they fixed it promptly. A bit expensive but this area is worth it.

Perfect Location - beautiful view of ipanema

Location and beautiful rooms
We got to a bad start when we arrived at the hotel they did not have any record of our reservation. They did give us a room after long delay and reduced the price which was good. The room was beautiful, nice furnishings and very clean. We had a deluxe suite with sea view and that was definitely worth it with amazing views of Ipanema beach and the Christ!! Staff are friendly but don't have the best advice when it comes to restaurants and tour bookings best to do your own research before hand. Also be wary of your security in the room, we had a staff member walk into our room in the early evening without knocking while we were having a nap. Makes me wonder how often staff let themselves into rooms.

Fantastic location and clean spacious rooms

Location right on Ipanema Beach, large rooms that are well appointed
We stayed at the Praia Ipanema after transferring from another Rio hotel. Accommodation in Rio is expensive but the Praia Ipanema represented good value compared to other places. The rooms were large, spacious and immaculately clean. The hotel had a nice pool and bar are on top with stunning views in both directions of the beach. They also provide free chairs and umbrellas on the beach itself which is a lovely service. Highly recommended and grab a beach view if you can!

Lovely Locations for a not so lovely hotel

Location and Beach Chairs
Booking the hotel on the internet it was hard to set an expectation for the hotel, but with what i paid a night I would have thought that it would have been at least half decent and it wasn't. As soon as we were there reception asked if we would like to pay for the safe which I would expect to be included esp given a location like Rio. Upon entering the room it was an ok size but looked dreary and uninviting. After 2 hours we were depressed enough to want to move to another hotel which was to the delight of Praia as they were overbooked, unfortunately so was everywhere else so we had literally no choice but to stay. the breakfast was shabby to say the least. NOTE you can order eggs via the waiter. The eggs precooked along with everything else that should be hot food was cold, and the juices were watery and the choice limited. Room service was extremely expensive, we ordered food on the internet which got delivered cheaper then room service and was great when we were to tired to leave the hotel.

Great Location

Friendly Staff
Staff and people are always friendly in Brazil so no surprise there. They gave us an early checkin and a late checkout which almost made up for the construction work that was being done above us at 7 in the morning and which continued throughout our stay. Breakfast was so-so and the sink in the bathroom was clogged. The view and the location were excellent, however, and there were some great restaurants nearby. This is a passable hotel and not really worth the money unless you want the great ocean views and we did.
Restaurant Tip: Gula Gula is 2 blocks away and has excellent food , not too pricey.
