Profile: Ipanema

Profile: Ipanema

20,000 people hit Ipanema’s streets during Banda de Ipanema, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015. As you might expect, the festival attracts people in flamboyant costumes, but it’s a family-friendly party.

If you can’t make it to this South Zone spot in Rio for Carnival season, visit Ipanema’s weekly Hippie Fair, or Feira de Artezanato de Ipanema. Vendors sell arts, crafts, and food while musicians play. It’s the perfect place to practice your samba steps and buy a souvenir.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Don’t do it!

    This hotel was more expensive than many nicer options close by, and we were fooled into thinking it would be a decent hotel. It’s noisy, the rooms are small, damp, and close to each other. Bathroom wasn’t clean. Pool is the size of a bath tub. It was so bad we almost left early to go to another hotel and lose the money.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very nice hotel and very clean and quiet. The beds were so comfortable. The air con was powerful and cold. I lived the shower. The elevators are very slow though. They secured a driver for us for sight seeing. Jose Carlos was amazing!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    the most I liked was the proximity to the beach, the roof top area with the pool is expectacular ( it is an area to pass a lot of time there ), and the restaurant with big glass windows looking into the beach.

    I love the location, breakfast/restaurant, and rooftop of this hotel. The pool and chairs on the terrace are very nice and the bar also provides great drinks.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Outdated, overpriced - simply horrible. BEWARE!

    Anybody wanting to stay at this hotel should think again. Just a few of the highlights from my six nights stay at the hotel: two elevators that are used by guests and all of the cleaning staff, meaning it's at least a 10 minute wait each time you use the elevator and then you are riding it packed with maids, mechanics, etc - not exactly a good experience; very outdated rooms, dirty hallway carpets, chairs that should have been replaced years ago; no English tv and advised BBC was available but nobody could tell me on what channel; breakfast is horrible and very limited - I found hair in my scrambled eggs...not once greeted at the restaurant; overall very unfriendly and indifferent; internet connection beyond weak and not always working; dirty and stained towels; it's not a pool on the rooftop - it is the size of a jacuzzi; the hotel is old and smelly. The only good thing is the location. Overall, a horrible experience - this is NOT a 4 star hotel...not even close and beyond overpriced. BEWARE.

    Beachfront hotel with unbeatable views and a very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is quite good, served in the beachfront restaurant. The pool is small but just enough for the memorable photos.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A well-located hotel on Ipanema Beach. The avenue in front creates a lot of noise if you are staying in a beach-facing room. The breakfast is wonderful and the rooftop deck is small as well as the pool but
