Had a great time staying at Praia Ipanema Hotel. The real wow effect is once you get to the rooftop - freaking amazing rooftop pool with a lounge area, we spent there quite a bit of time. I was working from the rooftop one day , pretty cool experience I have to say ! And make sure to get an ocean view room, you will not regret it. Now, real gem is the stuff. Everyone was beyond helpful . But Rock, gentleman from the frontdesk was amazing. He helped me few times with recommendations , documents print out and so on, and always had an amazing attitude. But little did I know that as I was checking out with him , I forgot a painting at the frontdesk. I didn't realize that at all, only when I got a Whatsapp phone call from Rcik 30 minutes later when I was already at the airport. "Seems like you forgot this thing here, let me send you a picture". Damn, I didn't even realize yet that I forgot it there, and was shocked he looked up my reservation, phone number, made an effort to contact me! He offered that they will ship it next day, but I sent an Uber to the hotel to pick it up and bring to the airport. He made sure that painting was handed to the driver ( I didn't have enough time to go back to the hotel) and made sure that I received it at the airpot. A+++++ service, guy is a hero and deserves a raise! Rock , if you are reading this, thanks so much again!

This hotel is the kind of 1980s hotel. Really depressing . Not super bad but really below expectations. Nice efficient and kind staff though. But decoration is totally outdated . Even from the 10th floor facing the sea you hear all the traffic. Not sound proof whatsoever. Bring your ear-plugs Breakfast is to cry . So boring . Again nice staff there. Stay away . Depressing

This review is not for the hotel itself, because I was not even able to stay there. Unfortunately, I booked this hotel before travel restrictions were enforced due to a worldwide pandemic. I tried calling and emailing the hotel multiple times to cancel, only to get no answer or a generic "I don't know". In my opinion, the right thing to do is to give customers the option of cancelling with refund during these tough times, however this hotel never even gave me an answer. That is poor customer service.

I usually book my trips without reading the reviews and did the same when I excitedly booked my trip in January to Rio de Janeiro for carnival, which took place in February this year. Most of the hotels were booked already and the ones left over were out of my price range. When I came across Hotel Praia Ipanema, I looked through the pictures, thought it looked nice, saw they had one room left and booked it immediately. Then I decided to read the reviews. I was a little concerned after reading the negative reviews about the hotel rooms being outdated, old, with leaky air conditioning units. Then there were many comments about the rude staff at the front desk. Not being able to check in early, etc etc... Now, I know when reading reviews, you have to take them with a grain of salt because it’s impossible to please everyone. And there are just those people that love to complain and look for the bad in everything. So I didn’t pay much attention to it, but it was in the back of my mind. I can honestly say, I don’t have a single negative thing to say about my stay at Praia Ipanema. From the moment we checked in, until the moment we checked out 10 days later. We were greeted very warmly by Tomas at the front desk. I asked him how his day was going and he seemed shocked that someone was actually interested in how his day was going. We chatted for a few minutes about my long 18 hour “commute.” It was 12:30pm when I arrived and check in isn’t until 3pm. Because of the negative reviews, and the fact that there was luggage already being stored behind the front desk, we asked if we could leave our luggage there too so we could go to the beach. Tomas said, let me check to see if we have a room available. They did and we went up right away with the bell boy right behind us with our luggage. I think showing a little kindness and asking how someone else is doing, goes a long way. But aside from that, the rooms were clean, smelled nice and fresh. The waiters for room service were always cordial. The view of Ipanema and the two brothers mountains from the rooftop pool are breathtaking, as well as the view from the restaurant on the same floor. So, I don’t know if they renovated or got new staff, but whatever the case is, I found the hotel to be clean and the staff to be very welcoming and professional. At check out, Tomas was at the front desk and I said “Tomas, I am very upset!” With a very concerned look on his face he he asked, “why? What’s wrong?” To which I replied, “I’m checking out!” We all had a good laugh and off we end to the airport to start our 18 hour trek back to NY. I highly recommend Hotel Praia Ipanema for your stay in Rio.
