              Excellent location, only 2 blocks from the beach. Also close to commercial area and several restaurant options. The rooms are new and confortable, and the cleaning is perfect. Staff is very attentive.

              7.4

              The bed was very big and comfortable. The staff were very helpful with suggestions on what to do. The room was vey clean, including the bathroom.

              We were initially given a smoking room even though we'd requested non-smoking. We complained, and they changed our room. The rooms didn't have much space. Public transport didn't seem very accessible so we took taxis everywhere, which was expensive. The value for money isn't great, but we learnt that everything in Rio is expensive.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Very nice staffwhowere helpful and spoke good English.

              Aircon was quite loud

            • Single
              7.4

              The hotel is located on a very busy road and the noise from the traffic could be heard from my room..

              7.8

              The location was good and the staff were especially responsive to those who did speak the native language. I would recommend this hotel to others.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Awesome location and nice, decent sized room. Staff were very helpful.

              Hotel doesn't really offer an facilities and the connecting door to the restaurant can't be used after breakfast which is mildly inconvenient.

            • Couple
              8.2

              The professionalism and courteous manner of the staff, and the Breakfast area! Comfortable rooms, if a little small, but what you would expect for a city hotel.

              Only slight downside was the noise from the road below..

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Room and furniture are very updated.

            • Couple
              8.2

              The Mar Ipanema seems fairly priced for its excellent location a short stroll from Ipanema beach, and within walking distance of some of the best dining options in the city, plenty of shops, the romantic nightlife around the lagoon, and even Copacabana. Hotel occupies a nice spot between business and boutique, with a nice and breezy reception area and very pleasant staff. Our superior room was bright and cheerful, though a little cramped, but we were pleasant to find ample space and hot water in the nicely decorated bathroom. We also liked the view towards the lagoon and the Corcovado beyond, and were very happy with the speedy, free internet.

              Breakfast could´ve been a lot better. The buffet left much to be desired, and not even the coffee was to our satisfaction. This is obviously due to the breakfast being outsourced to the dark, gloomy and slightly worn Devassa restaurant next door. We chose to start most of our days of with a visit to the excellent organic lunch restaraunt next door, so factor in some additional costs if you are picky about your breakfast. Apart from that we would have enjoyed a swimming pool, but then again, one of the greatest beaches in the world is only a few steps away.

              10.0

              The location is great, the service is very good (they always had someone there that spoke english) 2 blocks from ipanema beach.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The location was ideal, two blocks from the beach and on the main bus lines to access central city and local sights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All spoke good English which was helpful for us. The rooms were comfortable although not luxurious. And a very nice, generous breakfast was offered in the morning.

            • Group of friends
              5.8

              Location

              For what we paid... This is not a three star hotel in my eyes! The rooms were super small, dated and the bathrooms need renovation.
