"Excellent Hotel for the Money" Praia Ipanema Hotel Tip by Traveler-from-NY

Praia Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro: 1,252 reviews and 5 photos

I just returned from Brazil, and while in Rio I spent 5 nights at the Praia Ipanema Hotel. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Rio. I had a room with a balcony on the 15th floor. I had a great view of the ocean, the city, Corcorvado, and Sugarloaf in the far distance. THe room was clean and comfortable, and was a good size. The staff was helpful anytime I needed them. The rooftop pool was small, but who goes to Ipanema to swim in a pool. The restaurant next to the pool had good views and good, not great food. The neighborhood around the hotel is safe both day and night, and had plenty of places to eat and shop within a few blocks. Again, I would definitely stay here again, my experience at this hotel was a good one.
