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. There was free w-fi in all rooms or free computer access in reception. Breakfast was included in the rate and the selection was very good....

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...

I stayed at the Mar Ipanema as part of a Rio Stopover tour that I booked with a company I found online called Chimu Adventures. I really liked the hotel as it was a perfect location right near the beach and felt like a nice and safe neighbourhood. The staff were pleasant as well and breakfast was plentiful. The tours...

We stayed at this hotel for five nights in November 2008. We had a regular double room. The room was OK, nice and clean, but we would loved to have a balcony. The hotel is located in one of the best and safest areas in Rio de Janeiro, close to Ipanema Beach - only a two minute walk. It is...
