Miami Beach, Florida38 contributions8 helpful votes
Our 4th stay at Hotel Arpoador was as great as our last 3, we’ve made a point of treating ourselves to a few nights there (4 nights this stay) each time we come from Miami Beach to Rio. Clean, crisp, modern rooms, and a great beach vibe in the lobby-restaurant downstairs. Hugo and Taish at the front desk recognize us by name when we come now, sometimes after several months in between. And one of the biggest reasons we keep coming back is to see Gabriel in the restaurant; what a kind, simpatico, authentic young man. Already looking forward to our next visit!

Dear Manukrio, Thank you for sharing your experience during your stay at Arpoador and recommending our services to travelers all over the world. We are happy to know that you enjoyed our prime location, we are the only hotel that provides a ``foot on the sand´´ experience and an extended breakfast, with delicious brazilian cuisine. We also appreciate your compliments about our modern design and our spectacular view. From our rooftop, while you relax in the pool, it is possible to admire the stone of Arpoador, the Dois Irmãos hills and the Cagarras islands in just a glance, it’s incredible right? For your next stay we would like to recommend you to choose our Large room category, which offers more space and a unique and wonderful sea view. Please contact our reservations team directly to make your next booking at the ARPOADOR. Kind regards, Arpoador Team.

I loved everything about this hotel and was sad to leave it! The included breakfast was delicious, the bed was comfortable, the room was cute, the rooftop view, the location was amazing, and best of all was the staff - from the servers in the restaurant to the staff at the front desk. Everyone was so attentive and friendly!

Stayed 7 nights at this hotel for a emergency trip to Rio. Booked a city view room. Hotel is great. Right on the Arpoador beach, steps from the sand, great restaurant (ARP) w awesome drinks and entrees. The staff of both front desk, restaurant and throughout the hotel were attentive, friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. Pool on rooftop is small but the lounging area is so relaxing. And the view is 5 stars. Bikes are available for free for 2h. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Amenities were from Phoebo a Brazilian cosmetic company. It is basically a short Uber drive or walk to several restaurants. The only thing it needs improvement is the cable quality w more variety of channels and the Wi-Fi which disconnects quite often and it is hard to work remotely like that. Will definitely return.

It’s our 3rd time here and every time is special. Pick a front view room. Really worth the investment. Sunday Brunch menu is complete for all types of public. Highly recommend the grilled octopus and grilled shrimps. Starters nothing special.. just ok. The service overall is high standard with friendly staff and I felt safe even in a pandemic. Hope to be back soon!
