"Could Have Been Better"
The Front desk plays an important role to shape the customer's impression of the hotel and its services. When there is no connection to the internet because of some circumstances beyond its control, we expect the Front desk to inform us at the time we check-in and not to allow us to discover this later by ourselves. Without internet connection, our […] stay was seriously affected. The corridor lights are controlled by motion sensors but this are not synchronized with the lifts. We have to keep moving inorder to keep the lights on while waiting for the slow moving lifts. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Week in Ipanema"
The hotel is nice and in a very good location with easy access to Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana. From the hotel you can reach all the locations in Rio by bus or metro. The only negative comment I have is about the wifi connection. Although wifi is available for free in the hotel the quality of the signal is so poor that it makes it impossible to surf […] the net in your room and most of the time we had to go down to the main hall to be able to check emails. Apart from that, it is certainly a place I would recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location location location"
Practically on Ipanema beach the hotel doesn't have to try hard to impress, and the staff and rooms don't. But that's the compromise you have to make.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but value for money less good"
As is typical in Rio the hotel is not great value for money, but is in an excellent location, has a decent restaurant and good views from the roof top area. Service could be better. I ordered a room which had complimentary chanpagne but I had to remind them about that otherwise I wouldn't have got it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a great stay at the Golden Tulip Ipanema Plaza Hotel. Excellent location and very helpful staff. My room was spacious, clean and well appointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel,1 minute from beach,close to bars & restaurants, close to bus routes to all other tourist attractions. Twin room had 2 double beds & TV had half a dozen english speaking channels.Swimming pool was always clean with towels available with great views up to Corcovada and across to the lagoon and racetrack. Staff very helpful throughout, from […] arrival day when we arrived before check - in time to organising our shuttle back to airport.Shuttle service also ordered through expedia was also very good.

"Finally found my prefered hotel in Rio"
Great hotel, well kept, good location, very reasonable price. Will surely come backGenuine Expedia guest review
"Third stay & still love it here"
In fairness the rooms are a bit tired particularly the bathrooms which do need an upgrade. However, staff are friendly - a late check out was arranged with no fuss at all and the main thing is location. Literally a minute's walk to Ipanema beach - the hotel have their own pitch with chairs, towels etc at no cost. Are there more luxurious hotels? Probably. […] But we have stayed 3 times and would most likley make it 4 when we go back Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not 4 Star. Bathroom very tired, Not as advertised"
Very Disappointing. Bathrooms very tired. Did not supply Bathrobes and slippers as described. Deep soaking bathtub was a shower base! Ocean view is only is you hang out the window and look down the street!This hotel was overpiriced and not 4 star. Internet was also very expensive everyday.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean however bathrooms could do with updating. Receptionists were a bit abrupt, but ok. Breakfast was lovelyGenuine Expedia guest review
"great location, quite comfortable"
This is a great hotel in a great location - I much prefer Ipanema to Copacabana, and this is just 3 minutes from the beach. The rooms are comfortable, and the rooftop pool and bar are lovely. The staff are mostly very friendly and helpful ... a special mention to Rafael in IT who was a wonderful help with computer issues. It is only small things which […] bring my rating down from a 5 to a 4 - the double bed is two singles put together with a somewhat uncomfortable join in the middle; the shower curtain does not stop the bathroom from getting drenched when the shower is used; and the towels are a bit tired. But these are only minor, do not let them put you off staying. I'll be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the price"
The swimming pool was rented out for private parties and closed at 16.00 during our four days stay. The reception staff are arrogant and unhelpful. On the positive side the location is good and rooms are clean. Yet, the comparably high price is unjustified. All in all I would not recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Part outdated but worth staying as other strengths"
We had a twin room for 2 friends staying and it was really nice. The bathroom was very outdated however. Our safe broke whilst we were there but the safe resolved this immediately. We were a minutes walk from the beach and the hotel has a service providing free sunbeds and umberella on the beach which was great. If you don't want the beach there is […] a small but nice pool upstairs with views of Christ the redeemer. Opium restuarant, in the hotel is delicious for evening dinner, but not so great for breakfast. All in all though we would definitely stay again as it was nice, well located and we even had a view of the sea. Not bad we think they could just do with updating some parts of the hotel like the halls and bathrooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome location, average room"
The front desk staff was really friendly and helpful; they booked all tours and made reservations for dinners for us. The room itself was just average but the location made up for it as you're steps away from the beach and tons of great restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
fantastic spot , good service and lots to see around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good hotel"
This hotel is in a fabulous location, just one block from Ipanema Beach (poste 8 - predominantly gay area), surrounded by lots of great bars and restaurants and two blocks walk from the metro station. The hotel itself is nice, if a little tired. It is clean and functional but the bathrooms could do with a refurb (think chipped baths and all looking […] a little shoddy). Also, there was a light in my bathroom that did not turn off (no one could get it to turn off including hotel staff). Breakfast is also disappointing with some bread, fruit and cereal and a couple of very unappetising warm options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"More of a business hotel"
My other half was staying in the hotel for a work trip and I met him at the end so we thought easiest to stay in same place. Front desk staff were great, but overall expected more given the price. Breakfast was usual Brazilian affair (fruit, cake, bread rolls, ham and cheese (also had cereal)) and had outside area to eat in which was good. Rooftop pool […] looked nice, but we didn't use it with the beach minutes away (big plus). Mini bar, bar and restaurant are pretty expensive, caprihina's over R 20. Also wifi access is very expensive - r10 for 30 mins, r15 for an hour and r20 for a day. All the other hotels i stayed in whilst in brazil had free wifi. Our room wasn't cleaned one day which was a but poor, and needed with trips to and from the beach. Great if your work is paying, but if not would look or better value for money.

"Very nice hotel in Ipanema"
We really liked our stay. Yes it's more expensive than a comparable hotel in Europe or the US, but that's Rio and hotel staff were all really friendly and helpful especially when we needed anything for our little daughter. The location was superb. 2min away from Ipanema Beach in a nice neighbourhood with good restaurants and shopping streets. Nice pool […] on the rooftop was an asset too. We would choose this hotel again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Ipanema location and service"
We went with the family for a few days to Rio and were overall very satisfied wih the Ipanema Plaza. The Executive King rooms are very spacious. Staff were really helpful and kind, location is in a pleasant neighborhood and just a 2 min walk away from the beach. Lots of good restaurants around in Ipanema and neighboring Leblon. We would come back to […] this hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location, comfortable, good value for RIo"
The location of this hotel is perfect, a block from Ipanema beach. We were a party of 6, and were given 3 rooms on the 12th floor. The rooms were comfortable and quiet, showers very good. The lifts worked perfectly. Breakfast was decent, and we were able to sit outside with it. Rio is very hit-and-miss in its hotels - this one got the balance between […] price and quality about right for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Golden Tulip, Ipanema"
Rio is a beautiful place. With so many tourists coming for a holiday in the World famous location by Ipanema beach it's easy to see why Hoteliers in this City can feel complacent. The Golden Tulip a 4 star Hotel charges 5 star rates though in terms of cleanliness in the room it is only as good as a 3 star. We felt this could easily be fixed if they […] could give more attention to overall cleanliness to justify the high rates. Although the staff are friendly and they upgraded us we hope management can see that tourists will want to come back again if they work harder at improving standards in order to compete with other comparable international hotels that offer better value for money.

"localização é o ponto forte"
Localização excelente em Ipanema, muito próximo à praia e de vários locais para comer. Meu quarto era grande, limpo, cama enorme. Devido ao prédio ser muito antigo e não terem renovado, a recepção é bem simples, sente-se cheiro de mofo ou cigarro em algumas dependências...Precisa de uma reforma nos banheiros também: tive problemas com descarga que não […] funcionava logo que cheguei, o chuveiro não esquentava se não ligasse antes a água quente da pia e do bidê... O café da manhã é bom apenas. Há serviço de praia mas o hóspede precisa carregar a toalha, cadeira e guarda sol (é bem perto a pé). A área onde fica a piscina é pequena, quebra um galho, mas não é dos lugares de lazer mais agradáveis. Os funcionários foram bem atenciosos. Achei o hotel muito caro pelo o que oferece, comparado a outros que fiquei nas mesmas condições. Não voltaria. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A media cuadra de la playa con camas estupendas"
Ideal para ir a la playa o de turismo. Muchos restaurantes alrededor, incluyendo el propio restaurante del Hotel (Opium) que es el mejor, con una gran variedad de platos de fusion asiática y brasilera. Las vistas desde la piscina son mágicas. El Hotel muy limpio con camas muy cómodas. El baño un poco desfasado, pero bien.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ótima localização - Hotel razoável"
A condição do quarto é aceitável, mas não merece qualquer elogio. O café da manhã é bom e a localização é ótima.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Très bonne impression de l'hôtel, du personnel très serviable, à la disposition du client, maitrisant l'anglais (ce n'est pas partout au Brésil). Hôtel à 100m de la plage qui est juste en face (poste 9 sur Ipanema) avec à disposition des serviettes de plage, des transat et parasol : très utile, ça évite de devoir en louer. Très grand choix dans le petit […] déjeuner. Petite piscine sympathique sur le toit avec superbe vue avec une petite salle de muscu, sauna et hammam... il y en a pour tous les goûts. Regret de la clim un peu bruyante et du tarif de la chambre un peu élevé (le tarif de hotels.com permet de revenir vers un tarif un peu plus acceptable) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

O ar condicionado do quarto é muito fraco, solicitamos o conserto e o funcionário alegou que os aparelhos ñ funcionam bem, recomendou que ñ desligasse o ar nas saídas pois iria demorar a voltar a refrigerar.

ビーチにも徒歩1分程度で行けて、近所にスーパーやレストラン、ショップも多くあり、非常に便利です。 ただスーパーマーケットに行く途中に浮浪者が数名いるので注意です。 Wi-Fiが繋がりにくいのが、欠点ですGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location, close to beach, safe area, nice restaraunts and bars in the area, helpful staff speaking good english. Only hangup (as also commented by others) is the noise level of the AC. But some late Caipirinhas can eliminate any issues related to sleep and AC noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel très bien situé, agréable. les chambres ont tout de meme besoin de modernité, surtout les vieilles baignoires..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Très bien situé mais impersonnel"
L'atout principal de l'hôtel est sa situation : à 3 minutes de la plage d'Ipanema et 7 minutes du métro, avec beaucoup de commerces et restos aux alentours. La chambre était grande avec un très très grand lit ! Quelques bruits des chambres voisines mais supportable. Petit-déjeuner copieux et varié (buffet), le resto intéressant (cuisine asiatique). […] Service gratuit de chaise/parasol/serviettes sur la plage ("baraque" dédiée). Gros bémol, l'accueil est déplorable pour un hôtel de ce niveau : service minimum et pas aimable (sauf les bagagistes). Un exemple : notre chambre n'a pas été nettoyée le dernier jour malgré 2 rappels de ma part dans l'après-midi. Résultat : pas d'explications, pas d'excuses, une désinvolture évidente de l'accueil. Pas très grave mais détail génant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Camas enormes e excelente localização"
Achei o local do hotel muito bom, o quarto muito confortável. O atendimento no dia que cheguei foi um pouco confuso e um pouco lento. Eu tinha duas reservas mas o atendente localizava uma só e não conseguia de jeito nenhum localizar a outra. Mesmo com o voucher do hoteis.com. No fim ele conseguiu localizar, mas demorou e ele ficava insistindo que eram […] os três hospedes no mesmo quarto antes disso, e não eram, eram dois em um quarto e outro em outro quarto. Além disso, minha outra ressalva é quanto ao chuveiro, meu noivo é alto (1.83) e por isso, quando tomava banho a agua respingava por cima da cortina e molhava todo o banheiro, porque a cortina do box ficava mais baixa que o chuveiro. Com exceção desses detalhes, o hotel é ótimo, camas bem confortáveis, quarto grande e limpo, café da manhã muito bom. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
