Great hotel in Ipanema! Close to tons of restaurants and the beach!

This hotel was excellent. Large, comfortable room with friendly and helpful staff and excellent breakfast. One block from the beach and so close to every kind of restaurant. We didn't need to leave a 3 block radius to have the best trip! Great place!

Best place to stay in Ipanema!

We love this hotel! We were able to feel like locals, walking and bar hopping among very cool places and always feeling safe; the hotel personnel was helpful and attentive with the recommendation about places to go and eat. The restaurant serves the best sushi I tried in my life! Specially good with the 20% off vaucher the hotel gave to each of us at the check in. Check the swimmingpool at the top flor.... The view is breath taking. At the Ipanema Plaza you are a short and safe block of a lot of great places.... Some suggestions are: 1. Garota the Ipanema Bar is only one block away. Try the Picanha Brasileira 2. Opium, the hotel restaurant is excellent! Try the Exotico sushi platter. This plate has different kind of fish with curry, passion fruit and mango filings.... To die for! 3. Devassa, another bar, is accross the street and open until 2 am 4. The beach is only a block away... It is in the Posto 9... The coolest and hottest beach of all! 5. Shopping is plenty and fun a block away in the Rua Visconde de Piraja. 6. The best churrasqueria is 2 blocks away: Porcao 7. On Sundays, the Hippie Fair is 2 blocks... A must to see We definitely will come back!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you are going to visit Rio just a couple of days, I highly recommend you get a private guide to show you the city. Expect to pay around US$25-30/ hour. Day 1 - Corcovado (in the clog train) & Sugar Loaf - 3 h Day 2 - Downtown, Confiteria Colombo - 3 h

Repeat customer

Well-located, 1 block from the beach. Excellent breakfast with outdoor tables. The desk staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel construction & rennovation on creates some day time noise.

Pleasant

One block from Ipanema beach. Very nice. Large complementary breakfast buffet. Although, I''ve been to other Golden Tulip and this one wasn't as nice, as well maintained. Here you pay for the location.

Great vacation

Hotel has great location. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you are looking for luxury, this is not a choice you should make, but if you can settle for reasonable comfort, this is it. Breakfast included in price was good.

Perfect Location

Ipanema Plaza was the perfect location! It was on a lively street, close to the beach, and had a great rooftop pool. Breakfast was basic. The staff, especially at the reception, were extremely unfriendly and borderline rude. The rooms were clean and spacious.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

walk down the street to the havianas store, buy a pair, and flip flop your way down to ipanema beach. right down the street is the mostly gay (but friendly to anyone) beach with beach service (lounge chairs, towels, and cheap caiprinhas) all delivered to you. spectacular views, doesn't get much better than this!

Location is the reason to stay here

The Ipanema Plaza is ideally situated a block from Ipanema beach and within blocks of the central shopping area of Ipanema. The reception staff are helpful and courteous and speak english fluently. The hotel is a bit tired especially the bathrooms but the rooms are well sized and comfortably furnished and they are apparently making efforts to upgrade the place. This is definitely no more than a 3 star property. The morning breakfast buffet is plentiful and offers a great sampling of the tropical fruits of the region. There is a smallish pool and deck on the roof and a very small fitness room. There are a number of full service gyms two blocks away if you want a real workout while you are in Ipanema. WiFi internet access is 35 reals per day which is a little steep but if you want to stay connected it functions well. If location to the beach is what you are looking for this is the hotel for you - if you want luxury accomodations - look elsewhere.

Block from the beach

Location is perfect, just a block from the beach. Close to a lot of good restaurants, supermarkets, bars and the subway was only 2 or 3 blocks away. Free umbrellas and chairs for guests. Staff is very helpful, spoke very good English. Had an adaptor for my phone which was helpful. Check-in was slow, took longer than expected but they gave me a free drink while I waited. Buffet breakfast was great, good selection and range of foods. WI-FI worked well. Pool was being fixed, wasn't in operation when I stayed there. Rooms were cleaned regularly with no problems. Place had good security. Was a little noisy as I was only on the 7th floor. A bit pricey, but not outrageous.
