Hotel has a fantastic location on Ipanema. Close to bars, restaurants and the metro station. Room was clean and tidy. Check in staff helpful. Breakfast buffet good quality and nice range of options. staff friendly and nice view over the beach. Rooftop pool area was quite small, but nice bar and great views.

The staff at Sol Ipanema were all wonderful. We miss their Exceptional daily breakfast. The Best dining staff and very helpful reception desk. We were sad to leave when we checked out. It felt like we were leaving home. We watched and took pictures of the sunrise and sunsets from our hotel room.

We had a very comfortable room facing the beach. Air-conditioning worked well. The room was spacious. They accommodated us and put our two sons in a room right next to us. We never had a chance to use the small pool on the roof deck. Nor have a drink up top. We were busy doing other wonderful things in Rio....

My friends and I stayed at Sol Ipanema Hotel in December 2016 for 9 nights. The hotel was so clean, the hotel provided beach chairs, towels and umbrellas so we didn't need to BYO or buy beach equipments. The staff were so friendly, polite and helpful. The buffet breakfast was outstanding and so many choices. Nothing bad about this hotel....

Sol ipanema has a good location facing the beach. It's a 3 stars hotel not more so I found it expensive to what it offered me. The staff is mediocre and cleanness too. Breakfast was just ok but the restaurant was good.
