“One of the best”
This hotel was one of the very best that we have stayed in on several visits to Brazil over a period of 15 years. Everything worked, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the hotel itself is located close to the Ipanema beach and local shops where we could buy food, etc. Our room was quiet, well-appointed and spacious.
Great location great staff great room close to the beach and all the shopping a perfect experience and the staff is super helpfull and friendly highly recommend we asked for the quiet room it was perfect for us and since it doesnt have a window you get a great beach shot on your wall we absolutly loved the room very spacious as well
“I had a great stay at Mar Ipanema!”
The location is fantastic! Two blocks from the beach, 4 blocks from the lake, at the center of Ipanema"s shops and restaurants. The hotel is very nice. The lobby is small, but very attractive and comfortable. My room was very clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable, AC was quiet and worked well. There is a nice wall mounted plasma TV (which I never watched). The bathroom was very nicely appointed. There is no gym or pool here. The best part of my stay was the staff. They were very helpful, pleasant, informed about Rio including side trips, transportation, etc. I can't recall encountering a nicer group of people working at a hotel that I have stayed in for a very long time. 5 star staff for sure! When I return to Rio, I will stay here again!
“Recommendable Ipanema Hotel”
Good location and very good upkeep of a simple but pleasant hotel.
“First time in Rio”
Great place to stay - good location - helpful staff and very comfortable accomodations!
Very helpful staff, excellent Brazilian breakfast and located in the heart of Ipanema.
“Best hotel and best localization”
Best hotel to stay, close to the beach, next to many shoppings, clean, new and helpful.
The neighborhood is really safe and nice, with a lot of restaurants and bars at walking distance. The hotel is very new and fairly comfortable. You should try the "sucos" places around the hotel. Those fruit juices are amazing.
I was allowed to check in an hour early. The room is very clean and modern decor. Bed was on the hard side, but quite comfortable. The suites are on the first two floors, not the top floors like most hotels. There is no view of the ocean, but only a 2 block walk from Posto 10, one of the best parts of Ipanema. Free WiFi is included.
“Awesome Customer Service”
We spent 2 nights at the Mar Ipanema as it was our first time in Rio and Ipanema Beach was suggested over Copacabana. The hotel is located 2 blocks from the beach and we felt extremely comfortable walking around the area. The room was ready when we arrived and every last detail was taken care of. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They were able to arrange a city tour for us at a reasonable price as well as recommend and get reservations to a wonderful churrascarria nearby. Their rate included a hot breakfast in the adjacent bar/restaurant every morning. The choices were fresh and plentiful. Upon checking out they cheerfully held our luggage as our flight was not until late that evening and cheerfully kept the cooler bag with my meds in a refrigerator so as not to rely on the ice packs for 24 hours. They also arranged for a safe taxi to the international airport for a fixed rate (very important with the evening traffic). To say we were impressed would be an understatement; Mar Ipanema was a first rate experience and we would be happy to recommend them to our friends. Needless to say when we return to Rio this will be our hotel of choice.
