Hotel do Ype is a great place for birding. The feeders attracts lots of birds (even toucans). If birding is your main goal this is the place to be. BUT... The food in this hotel is the worst we've ever had had in Brazil (this trip was our third visit to Brazil and we've visited more then 10 lodges in...

We really wanted to stay in the park, and Hotel Do Ype looked great on the internet. Unfortunately it was not possible to book online and the english version of the website did not work. Luckily it was the end of high season so they had plenty of room... Or I must say - unfortunately it was the end of...

Perfect location for hiking, birds watching and visit of waterfalls in the National Park and nice view of surrounding areas, but service quality of restaurant did not match our expectations and its high price level.

The hotel is located in the National Park and is a great location for birding. The accommodations are very nice individual chalets. Ours had a sitting room then a short hallway to the main room which was a combination bedroom/sitting room complete with functional fireplace and large screen TV. Off of the bedroom was a small deck overlooking the property....

This lovely little hotel is in the middel of the Atlantic forrest with a beautiful view and an amazing sound of the forrest waking up in the early hours. It's perfect located for hiking tours in the area and for birding. The staff only speaks very little English, but the service is very good and they really try to make...

Back in 2012, I reviewed this hotel for TripAdvisor, along with a number of other reviews that all disappeared. So I am doing it again. I heartily recommend this hotel. I was part of a birding group and this lodge was excellent. The "houses" reminded me of what one can see in photos of Switzerland. The rooms were very clean,...

This hotel is located in the Parque Itatiaia, a couple hours outside of Rio by car. If you plan to visit the area I recommend staying within the Parque itself to cut down on travelling to hiking opportunities. The Hotel provides a peaceful opportunity to hike and especially watch many beautiful birds. All meals are provided so no need to...

It initially seemed like an easy drive to Itatiaia and Hotel do Ype from Rio de Janeiro, but my driver was very uncertain about my destination when we were getting close to the park, and of course spoke not even one word of English. Even when the people he asked for directions on the way seemed to confuse him, he...

Hotel do Ypê is by far the best option for birders visiting Itatiaia National Park. Excellent food, good rooms, early breakfast, nice staff, amazing birdfeeders and the most important , the hotel is inside the park.

Recently spent four days at Hotel do Ype in Itatiaia National Park. Beautiful setting, and fantastic bird watching. The chalet where we stayed was very romantic complete with fireplace and a wonderful view of the rainforest when the clouds lifted. We were there in mid December, the beginning of the rainy season, and many of the facilities at the lodge...
