Sao Paulo, SP22 contributions20 helpful votes
I had a great stay for 13 nights. The rooms are modern, and well-cleaned. People are right in saying the beds are a bit soft, though this doesn't bother me personally. The hot water pressure is great. One thing I loved about the room is that I could HEAR the ocean all day every day. You'd be surprised what an advantage that is. I also had a view of the Arpoador rock formation and that little section of beach if I arced my neck. My favourite thing is that the rooms have a window that you can open. Seriously, I did not turn the air-conditioner on all week, and really enjoyed staying with natural light and natural air the whole time. The Internet was important to me, because I worked all day. It faltered a couple of times, but never dropped out and I was consistently connected to Zoom meetings and everything else with no problems. The rooftop is great for sitting and doing some work with a lovely beach view. My only complaint was that I wasn't compelled to swim in the plunge pool, as it looks kind of misty and gross towards the end of the day. I don't know how often it is cleaned, because I didn't ask, maybe they filter it every night. Breakfast is great and so is the service. The location is incredibly convenient, you can go down to the beach and leave your phone and valuables inside the hotel, since it's just a few steps away. For anyone talking about the location and walking at night, urrr Welcome to Rio de Janeiro? That's Rio, not the hotel. This hotel is in about the safest place you'll find in Rio de Janeiro, perhaps with the exception of isolated Alto Leblon, where there are no hotels. You're as safe as one can possibly be in RJ at this hotel location.

I’ve been at the Arena Ipanema Hotel for about 8 nights now in total. I left for an overnight trip to Buzios and missed them while I was away. I can’t say enough about the awesome staff, location, food, and contemporary yet thoughtful design of the hotel. The location is stellar, situated in Ipanema right behind the Arpoador and steps to the beach. The daily breakfast is always good and fresh no matter when I arrive, the rooftop pool is refreshing and the caipirinhas are among the best I’ve had in the city. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the rooms which have a Scandinavian design with a bit more space. The hotel is immaculately clean and they even have a switch you can flip in the room when you would like to have your room serviced which is visible at the front desk. On top of all that, it’s one of the best priced hotels in Ipanema. Don’t miss out on a great home away from home! Special thanks to Antonio and Valeria who have made my time at the hotel truly memorable although all the staff have been kind and caring.

I stayed at the Arena Ipanema Hotel for over a week and it was an extreme pleasure. Everyone was extremely pleasant; from the wait staff at the bar / restaurant, to reception and the cleaning staff. Any request I made was promptly attended to in a friendly and professional manner. To write that I had a “nice stay” at the Arena Ipanema hotel would be a massive understatement. I felt completely taken care of and treated as a VIP. Management has done a terrific job; I give a special thanks to Valeria. She is best in class in terms of professionalism. A side note, the hotel is also in a great location If you are looking for superior service and communication look no further then the Arena Ipanema hotel in Rio:) I am a resident of Zurich, Switzerland and would recommend anyone coming from CH to choose this hotel.
