"Tourist class hotel with street noise, tiny room, convenient location"
Location blocks from beach, on street with pedestrians, not far from metro is great. Corner location means traffic noise at least from 5 am to midnight on 9th floor on side street because buses and motorcycles stop and start, beep horns. One room (ends in 8') seems to face back, so might be quieter. I had an adjoining room so I could hear my neighbor's conversations in normal voices plus their phone sounded like it was ringing in my room. Seemed secure from street with vigilant bellmen. No peephole in door, though. Also will make new room key if you tell them room number without asking for ID. (Am I that memorable') Room OK for cleanliness--a little mold on grout in bathroom. Either they are remodeling the bathroom or they are going for an industrial look--tile up half wall, then unsmoothed concrete up to ceiling. Used room service trays were left in elevator lobby for more than 24 hours. The room was ridiculously narrow. I paid for higher category room to get higher floor (and I thought larger room). The desk was at the foot of the bed and the plastic desk chair was sitting next to the desk. To sit at the desk, I either had to lift the chair above the bed and work in into the desk opening or else leave it out in the room and sit on the foot of the bed--yes it was that close. If sitting at the desk in the chair, the chair touched the foot of the bed. I was really glad to be traveling alone. There was excess space in the entry nook. Breakfast was OK except for the hot dogs as sausage/meat. Staff friendly.
The best of the hotel is its location. 2 blocks from Ipanema Beach and 2 blocks to many of Ipanema's best restaurants. Rooms are nicely clean interior. The hotel sounds like a smart choice if you don't mind that it does not have swimming pool. Breakfast is offered in the attached Devassa Bar and it is ok, nothing very special, quite simple. Gave it a 5 stars on the overall cost, location, rooms, cleanness.
"Excellent Location and great staff"
I stayed at Mar Ipanema Hotel in April 2017 for seven days. Excellent location, less than 10 minutes walk from the beech. Variety of shops and restaurants in the vicinity. Initially, they gave me a room on the 3rd floor; it was clean, small, but could hear the street noise. Therefore, I asked if they could give me a different room. The staff was very professional and helpful. They immediately moved me to a different room, on the 11th floor, which was bigger, quieter, and have a great view. I enjoyed the complementary breakfast at Armazem Devassa restaurant which is located on the first floor adjacent to the hotel. Great option for lunch or dinner, if you choose not to go far from the hotel. The staff was awesome helping me with different tour programs. Overall, it was a great stay, and will choose it again. I definitely recommend this hotel, it is great for the price.
"Ok hotel horrible internet...hotel mais ou menos internet horrível"
Fiquei aqui 2 dias em maio, sem my problema mas o wi fi de graca uma piada, não funciona....I stayed here two days in may, hotel ok, basic and clean, but the wi if is a terrible joke , doesn't work period
Excelent location, just few blocks from Ipanema Beach. The Visc. Pirajá Avenue where the hotel stays have a lot of different stores and nearby a good variety of places to eat. I felt safe walking around, but didn't walk at night. The breakfast is really good, the staff is nice as well.
