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 must admit, I had high expectations of this place from the reviews and friends experiences. My expectations were not only met but because of people like Antonio they were blown away! The perfect combination of location and 5 star amenities.

Room tip: Get the suite! The upgrade is worth it!

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.
