Arena Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro’s small print


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.

We have included all charges provided to us by this hotel. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.

Very nice stay!
My third stay in this hotel. It is still very nice - I love location, amazing views from the roof top bar, steps from Ipanema, modern nice rooms. However there might be more amenities available for the guest if the hotel is called 4 star property. Breakfast was better one year ago then it was this time. I think freshly squeezed orange juice should be available for breakfast. Amazing attention from staff at all times - thanks very much, any minor issues I mentioned were professionally solved. This hotel is definitely better than any average 4 star hotel in Rio (price/quality balance is amazing) and I will be back. Thank you!

New hotel with great location
This hotel was brand new with an awesome location on Ipanema beach. I loved the service of the staff and our check-in lady was amazing! She went out of her way to make our stay amazing and helped us with a lot of requests (such as extra water to our room, extra towels, book a massage in our room, extra room key, etc). My room was a bit small but you can upgrade to a bigger room if you need space. The rooftop bar was awesome as well and had a small but nice pool. Finally, the shower water pressure was excellent! Overall I recommend staying here if you're ever in Rio!

Highly recommended
We’ve been in Rio for the first time and we had a great time, we choose the Ipanema Hotel because was a safe area and we loved it. Great location, nice pool deck, very good roof top bar and an excellent staff. All the persons we met was extremely polite and professional. We couldn’t fail to mention some names like Marcos, Beth and Mauro who was extremely cordial. Highly recommended
