Decent basic family hotel. Family room was good for parents and two primary school kids. Nice roof top plunge pool was a hit with the kids. Good Ipanema location, right on the beach. Breakfast buffet is reasonably good also, even if basic. Decent value.
This hotel is ALL about the location. The beach front location and view from the room (provided you have a room facing the front) is great but rest is disappointing. Particularly the lack of cleaning is a problem. My windows were so dirty I could hardly see through the glass to enjoy the fore mentioned view. The room in general and the bathroom was dusty and sticky in many places. Another drawback is the lift / elevator. There are only two and we had to wait for very long every time we needed to use it. The staff at reception were friendly and polite though.
Best beachfront location in Ipanema. Modern, spacious rooms with great views, efficient and friendly staff, and excellent breakfasts. Our requests were all handled courteously and promptly. This is an affordable gem in Rio de Janeiro.
We left for a full day tour since 7 am and when we arrived at 10 pm the DOOR OF THE ROOM WAS OPEN. We immediately called guest services and the answer was “Maybe the cleaning personnel left the door open, it won’t happen again”. We were very lucky they didn’t steal anything but it’s unacceptable what happened and even more the explanation we received. They left the room open for over 12 hours, no one noticed it and the explanation they gave was unbelievable.
We checked in, the front desk clerk was kind, helpful in English and Portuguese. He helped me figure out the car parking as well as getting us checked in fast. Our room was wonderful. Bed was very comfortable and huge which is hard to find in Rio. Breakfast is exceptionally delicious. Views from the room were amazing. The hotel was very accommodating when our needs suddenly changed and we needed to leave earlier than expected. Would absolutely stay there again.
Of all the Hotels at the Ipanema Beach the Sol Ipanema is the best,excellent location and great service. Rooftop Pool / Bar, Nespresso machine in room, excellent clean shower with high water pressure, great breakfast area, excellent Italian restaurant in house, english speaking receiption all times.....etc etc
Perfection bu the amazing employees at the property. Incredible service and great accommodations. The partnership with JK from the Jerónimo beach tent was tue big differentiator. Top experience for our family. The crew is super polite. The place fees completely secure with 24/7 security.
Great location in the middle of Ipanema on beach. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bed was good, king sized. Small pool in roof top, and bar. Amazing views. Very nice buffet style breakfast. Also a restaurant, but did not eat there. Only minor complaint was slow elevator (we were on floor 13). Staff very nice.
This hotel had everything I needed for my first trip to Rio. The staff was welcoming, warm & super helpful. It's techinically a "Beach Front" hotel, but you have to cross a busy two way street to get to the beach. Sol Ipanema offers a daily free breakfast, has a restaurant and 24 hour room service. The food was yummy. Floor 16 is a rooftop deck and bar with a small cooling pool. Here you can experience awesome views day or night. Room 705 is on the back side of the hotel and experiences wind noise on rainy/windy nights (No fault of hotel). The room was big with a comfy Emperor sized bed. The tiled bath shower is slippery so beware or use a small towel to minimize chances of crashing into the glass shower door (I will bring a rubber map next time). The quality of daily service(s) I received were very good considering I did not speak Portuguese. Everyone wears a mask and is on board with proper Covid-19 protocol. The hotel also helped me schedule my Covid test for re-entry. Yes, I will be returning ....... Thank you.…
