          Old hotel, condition of room is agly, no balcony. Had paid 350 usd per hight for so uncomfotable stay. Good location but not 4 stars for sure. 3 stars maximum. Breakfast is pure, really bad. Would never stay next time.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Way over priced. Didn't get the room we thought we would. They had the nerve to charge extra for my wife to stay in the room. They tried to screw us on the currency rate to the tune of 7%. We will tell everyone we can never to stay there. Also, we will use every means possible to tell the world the same thing.

        • Older travelers

          I liked the rooftop deck with views of Ipanema Beach. The room was spacious. The location is great.

          For $400 a night, it is just overpriced. But there are not many hotel choices on Ipanema Beach. The rooftop deck should be open at least until midnight. The elevators are very slow.

        • Single

          The location is great. The front desk staff were helpful. The room was clean and relatively comfortable.

          I felt the hotel was overpriced for the appointments in the room, breakfast, etc.

        • Single

          The location in Ipanema is great

          It's a very spartan, cramped hotel.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Location, location and location. Prices are very expensive in Rio and it doesn't compare with English standards regarding value for money. It's within easy reach of the beach and good restaurants around Ipanema Beach.

          The hotel was comfortable and clean. Breakfast very acceptable.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          A comfortable hotel with good access to the beach. Some good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The area appeared to be safe and the metro is within walking distance. Only the reception staff spoke good English.

          For the price it is good but not exceptional. On checkout a service charge and local tax were added to the Booked.net quoted price and as this amounted to 15% it made the hotel even more expensive.

          The staff here really made the difference. Thanks for being so helpful in my hour of desperate Mac charger need. I was at Sheraton Rio first but the Sol Ipanema rooms were so much nice and more modern.

          Very good situation

          Very very high price Elevator not working (inaceptable) Minimum comfort a lot of noise but this is rio and Ipanema beach Disappointing

        • Couple
          6.6

          Everything was ok but Only one elevator was working and the acces to the rooms toke 15 minutes each time (the room was in the 14th floor) I will Not recommended tris hotel for that issue. Was a true devil!!!!!

          Location

          Staff wasnt kind, 1 elevator didn't work the whole stay, breakfast was poor compared to others brazilians hotels, they didn't clean the room in the morning period so if you leave in the morning end arrive by lunch you will find your room dirty. The room wasnt ready for check in by 4 pm.

        • Single
          7.4

          The room was clean and quiet. Staff was helpful with luggage and hiring taxis. Shower, bed, tv, amenities in the rooms are decent and similar to a north american hotel (I.E. sheraton, hilton and etc). The hotel is right across the street from the beach. They provide beach towels, chairs and umbrella at the hotel. Hotel is a 10 min walk from the subway/metro. It is in a safe area and a luxurious area (Ipanema is a high end neighbourhood) Hotel is close to a lively area with restaurants, shops, grocery store, banks, bars. Breakfast was included in the stay and it was pleasant...although they could extend the hours of breakfast to 11:00am. (Normally close at 10am). Hotel is a block away from the gay beach (look for the gay flags) and some gay bars (hence, convenient for gay travellers)

          Internet connection was not the fastest. There were interruptions when I was logged on. For the price I paid, I expect the internet to be reliable and quick. Price is at the expensive range. You are paying for the location (across from the beach). There are other hotels two blocks away from beach which may be a little more affordable. You can always rent chairs and parasols at the beach. Breakfast ends at 10am. I recommend that they extend the hours to 11/11:30 am. I like to sleep in when I travel :)

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Cleanliness of the rooms plus the location - just across from the beach.

          The very bright dining room at night.

        • Couple
          6.2

          The view from the room is great and the location of the hotel is in the best part of ipanema

          The hotel needs serious renovation. The prices are very expensive for what they offer. The breakfast was served in a terrrible meeting room set up and the renovations taking place were covered with a bed sheet stuck on the wall. Not too pleasant to look at. The noise from the street is also bothersome even though we were on the 13th floor.

        • Single
          5.8

          Excellent location right on the beach.

          Rooms and Hotel are mediocre and not worth the price.
