Hotel San Marco Ipanema
Ranked #192 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed 29 October 2016 via mobile

PROS. Location is ideal,  2 blocks from  Ipanema beach, and on a very busy street with a lot of restaurants and shops. There is a department store and supermarket right beside it. The front desk are helpful and speak english. Breakfast is filling, with assorted bread, scrambled egg, hotdog, ham and cheese
CON: The room is small and a bit old, and mattress was not firm, the kind that you sink into and give you lower back pain the next day.  The shower heater took a while to work and did not work at all during my last day. I ended up flooding the bathroom waiting for the shower to heat up. 

Stayed: October 2016, travelled solo

This hotel is close to everything - the beach, shopping, restaurants, subway. Farmers market just down the street on Fridays, other fun outdoor markets are not far. The hotel room for my sister & I had 3 single beds, TV, wifi and window a/c. The bathroom had THE GREATEST SHOWER EVER! Lots of water pressure! Staff was wonderful, breakfast was fine. Loved our stay in this boutique hotel!

A budget hotel in a great location. Basic but all you need rooms including a safe and great friendly and helpful staff whho speak excellent English. Fantastic value. Basic but adequate breakfast that is typical of all Brazilian hotels.

Location, location, location - this is the reason i stayed there and it could not be beaten. Only a few blocks away from the Ipanema beach and upscale Leblon.
Staff really wonderful - always smiley, always friendly, always helpful.
Now it goes downhill a bit...
Breakfast mediocre - not much choice, quality unimpressive
Rooms - very small, student-like - definitely not for families, young kids etc.
Clothes smelling of mould after a few days in their wardrobe.
Tv not working, aircon very old...so go for it if you don't intend to stay in your hotel much...

The hotel is small, but the room was very clean and not noisy at all. Friendly employees. Free breakfast was good enough with fruits, juices, coffee, pastries, bread, cheese, a good variety and a nice breakfast area. The location of the hotel is the best you could ask for in the upscale Ipanema neighborhood, 2 blocks from the beach and close to all the buzz and shopping. Great price for the superb location.

Room Tip: top floor is probably better, quieter.

Literally the toilet is beneath the shower, you can actually shower and *** at the same time. Air conditioning was not strong enough, it was clean enough, but in general, was not a very pleasant experience. The bed fits the whole room area, there is no room for anything else.

Like most of Rio, the San Marco was overpriced during Carnaval, but it was much nicer than we expected based on the reviews here. The rooms were very clean and well laid out (lots of shelf space). The standard room had a large, glass-doored shower (not the simple drain on the floor I had feared). The staff was very helpful, and the breakfast buffet was fantastic. They continually replenish and don't clear things away if you arrive just before breakfast ends (10 a.m.). Wifi is only in the lobby, which is inconvenient. The neighborhood is very safe. The beach is two blocks away. They don't have beach towels, but don't mind if you take the towel from your room.

Room Tip: Interior courtyard rooms are quiet.
