I stayed at the Mar Ipanema for six nights while in Rio. The location was perfect. The view from my hotel window was Ipanema beach to the left and Christ the Redeemer to the right. Only about 1.5 blocks to the beach @ station 10. Close to eating places and shopping. The hotel staff was incredible helping me find the...

Overall, this a good hotel, and I would probably stay there again. The location is excellent, walking distance from the beach and various amenities. Everything in the hotel is clean and well maintained; the rooms are modern and comfortable, the staff is helpful and the breakfast is very good. My only complaint is the noise, both from the street and...

Nice hotel with new furniture and fittings. Possibly in the most covinient location of rio for leisure: on the main street of Ipanema, 5 minutes walk from Leblon and 20 minutes from Copacabana. You can be in 1 minute on the beach or on the lake with views on the Corcovado. The staff is generally very nice and the breakfast...

I stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend trip to Rio with 14 colleagues. The rooms are reasonable size with airconditioning. There is a lockable safety deposit box in the room which is an additional cost. I was on the 4th floor which was quite noisy. We are breakfast and also dinner at Devassa Bar & Restaurant and both...

After looking for Tripadvisor user's opinions, I decided to book at this Hotel, but didn't pay attention to what just a few travelers had said about robbery in rooms. I've been traveling more than 20 times in Rio for more than 20 years, and I never had a problem like this- I left some dollars in safe deposit box, it...

The location of this hotel is really very good and this would be the main reason to stay there. It is 2 mins from Ipanema beach in a very nice area with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. The rooms are ok and for Rio I think pricewise it is reasonable value for money. Service was ok, did not really...

We stayed 3 times in the hotel during September. We booked this hotel mainly because it is located in a safe area near the Ipanema beach and we were pleasantly surprised. Rio was our base from which we traveled to north and southern Brazil and we were always happy to come back to this hotel. The location is indeed perfect,...

Having stayed in many other places in Rio, it's hard to criticize Mar Ipanema. It's not a fancy hotel, but the service is OK, the location is among the best in Rio and it's cheaper than many older hotels. Disclaimer: I stayed there on a short business trip, so I was more focused on having a reasonable place to stay...

The Mar Ipanema Hotel was a lovely hotel in a good location in Ipanema. It's situated on the shopping street about 2 blocks from the beach. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable.

The hotel is ideally located in the heart of Ipanema, between the Lagoon and the beach, on a very busy street. It feels safe to walk around to either side, Leblon or Copacabana, and it is a really nice neighborhood with lots of restaurants, bars, stores, etc. The rooms are on the small side but clean and well appointed with...
