About Sol Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro

Tower hotel on popular stretch of Rio's Ipanema Beach

Opposite Posto 9 beach

The hotel's prime, waterfront location overlooks the Posto 9 section of Ipanema Beach, which draws a young, eclectic crowd. It's a 15-minute stroll from Sol Ipanema Hotel to Arpoador Beach, the birthplace of Brazilian surfing.

General Osorio Square

A 10-minute walk takes you to the tranquil General Osorio Square, where locals gather to chat, and the subway station can help you explore the rest of town. For some serious shopping, a 5-minute taxi ride drops you at the Shopping Leblon mall with restaurants and over 200 stores.

Free breakfast, pool view

After enjoying a free breakfast with beach views, you might squeeze in a workout at the fitness center, or take a dip in the rooftop pool. More views of Ipanema Beach can be had while dining on Italian or Mediterranean cuisine at the Gabbiano Al Mare restaurant.

Minibar, free WiFi

Free WiFi Internet access and minibar refreshments offer the perfect break from the beach buzz below as you watch the flat-screen TV. The 89 air-conditioned guestrooms are decorated with bright, contemporary finishes, and room service is available around the clock.

Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Please note that cultural norms and guest policies may differ by country and by property. The policies listed are provided by the property.

The location is beautiful and breakfast is nice. However, hotel needs an update. The bathroom is in desperate need for update and there was a bad smell coming from it.
