"Nice place to stay"
It was our anniversary trip and we enjoyed staying at this place. Very safe and nice neighborhood in Leblon. Staff is friendly and bartender on 16th floor makes really good Brazilian caipirinha and also provides fabulous service!
"Worse than the rating showing up in the internet!"
Run-down Hotel! A typical case where the owners didn't invest over decades! Noisy and a bad value for money! For Europeans not recomended!! For little more money you can enjoy in Ipanema or Copacabana much nicer hotels! Staff is almost not English speaking.
Good standard, clean, prime location on Ipanema beach. I have no reservations against recommending a stay at Praia Ipanema. The hotel is also in a good neighbourhood with several good restaurants within a short walk.
"WARNING: hotel staff steals credit card information from the safe"
We kept some credit cards in the safe the whole time we were there. When we got home, we saw that someone tried to use 2 cards that were in the safe - three times unsuccessfully, one time with success for thousands of dollars. They used them for major purchases in Rio at a car repair / supply store. If you look at reviews on Trip Advisor and on other sites, you will see that this is a problem that this hotel has had for many years. I told the hotel manager already, and I did not receive a response. Either they don't care or they are involved in the scam. AVOID THIS HOTEL.
"Very poor service"
I stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights in May, and although the Hotel is in an excellent position, the service from the staff was extremely poor. I had paid for an ocean view room and had to have a quite unpleasant experience, and wait 2 hours before I was finally allocated the correct room. Bags were not delivered to the room and I finally had to get them myself. The attitude of the staff leaves a lot to be desired. The breakfast was half cold, as was the tea and coffee. Needs a major shakeup of staff training. Very disappointed.
