Good location, bed service.
The bed's size.
The BREAKFAST is very poor. The staff working there does not pay attention at all on your needs. If you ask for a knife or fork , they take so long,and sometimes we decided to go next to the kitchen ...

the hotel has one of the best locations in ipanema.close to beach restaurants night life and safe
the hotel restaurant has great staff and venue but food is aveage
i visit rio often ,i prefer to stay in ipanema as it is convenient and safe.i have stayed in many apartments and hotels near the ipanema plaza.the ipanema plaza is by far the best option i have used .i have stayed many times over the past years and pleased to see facilities and service have been improving consistently. the front desk staff are very helpful with a good knowledge of tourist otions and restaurants.

Very good stay overall.
Compared to my last year's stay, the breakfast has been improved i think but could still be improved. The swimming pool is just amazing with its astonishing view (Crocovado+Ipanema beach). you ...
the pool bar/resturant should have someone staying there permanently. it was difficult to order a drink when there and we had to wait a long time just to get water. also the waiting time for food ...

good solid value hotel with amazing location
location is perfect-less than a block from the beach, with great nightlife and restaurants on rua farme de amoeda steps away. friendly staff.
Hallways and room floors are a bit dank and dark. Bath amenities feel low budget.
This hotel was a great experience and I feel an excellent value for the money. It's location is perfect, in the heart of Ipanema on Rua Farme de Amoeda, less than one quick block to the beach. Staff is friendly and accommodating and speak English. The free breakfast is great. The amenities aren't spectacular, but decent, and with this location you barely notice. I highly recommend!

Ipanema Plaza Review - Rio de Janeiro
Good location, nice rooftop pool, great breakfast, rooms were pretty nice.
N/A
Ipanema Plaza Hotel is in a great location that is close to the beach, shops, bars, and numerous restaurants. The views from the rooftop are pretty amazing. The staff is really nice and helpful. The only area for improvement is some updating to the rooms (tv, shower,etc) but then again who is going to spend much time in their room while in RIO!!!

Great location and that's about it
Without a doubt, the best feature is the location ... right in the heart of fashionable Ipanemna.
Where to begin?!?! 1) Our room was not clean when we first entered. The floor was sticky and had to be recleaned and housekeeping had left their cleaning cloths in the room. 2) The air conditioning was not working properly. 3) New Year's Eve the rooftop was rented out for a private party ... until 6am! Our room was on the top floor so sleeping there was impossible as the music was louder than you would believe and there were people dancing over our heads. After explaining that I had an early morning flight and needed to sleep to the front desk staff (the Manager refused to talk to me) I was shown to another, lesser-quality room. For the amount of money I had shelled out (everything had to be prepaid) I refused to accept the other room. A half hour later, they showed me yet a 3rd room (the one being held for the DJ of the private party ... UNBELIEVEABLE!). So at 3am I was packing and moving rooms with no help from the hotel. 4) This was labeled a "luxury" hotel ... it is far from luxurious. There are none of the little extras that connote "luxury".
There' not much to say that I havn't said above. It is a nice hotel in a great location that charges room rates that don't seem to be justified based on the quality. To be fair, I was there during a very busy weekend and in the end, the manager of the hotel did follow-up with an email and invitation to come back for 2 nights free.

The rooftop pool is beautiful, great views. Lovely lounge area upstairs, breakfast was included. Excellent location 1 block from the beach and very close to nearby shops and restaurants. Friendly and ...
As other reviewers stated, room could do with some minor updates and new AC unit. However, it was comfortable and clean. Gym is very small but good views.

muy buena eleccion en Ipanema . hotel moderno
ninguno
El hotel está situado casi enfrente de la playa de Ipanema, las habitaciones son cuidadas y limpias, con mobiliario bueno y confortable. Las vistas desde la psicina se puede observar el Cristo del Corcovado y las montañas a un lado, al otro la playa. Muy buen servicio en el restaurante donde te atienden con mucha amabilidad. Recomendable. Rlación precio - calidad muy buena.

Rooms need updating and could have been a little cleaner, but for the location and scene, did not have a detrimental effect on the stay

Hotel muy confortable, excelente atención y ubicac
restaurant, servicio de playa, habitaciones grandes, camas super king , desayuno.
Muy liberal al permitir el pasaje de huéspedes por el lobby con el torso desnudo camino a la playa
como se desprende de lo anteriormente expresado, se trata de un hotel de muy buena calidad, en una zona excepcional, con un restaurant cuya carta es muy interesante y los platos de alta calidad, muy buenos tragos y un barrio muy lindo. La seguridad parece buena , el personal es cordial y el servicio de limpieza de la hbaitación , (sábanas, toallas, etc.) acorde con el resto del hotel. Muy bien el bussines center y la piscina con buen servicxio en la azotea. En suma, muy recomendable establecimiento.
