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.

Great location for the price - smelly beds
Rooms are small but modern and adequate. Lobby is nice, location is PERFECT. In Arpoador right between Copacabana and Ipanema. Steps from the beach but no ocean views. Included breakfast is great, large spread of hot food and fresh breads/fruits. Rooftop pool is tiny but the bi-level sitting area and bar are great for watching the sunset or taking in some sun on the lounge chairs. Shower is super powerful but it has a tendency to leak onto the floor. Most negative aspect however is the smell of the sheets and pillows. They smell like sweat. Like a teenage boys bedroom. They are clean but still have the strong scent of sweat. I asked for them to be replaced which they did immediately but they smelled the same. I sprayed them with cologne every night before sleeping.

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!
