No service elevator. You have to wait because the staff are using the elevator. Staff at reception are not that friendly.

The property was so convenient to Ipanema beach and restaurants and bars a block away. The staff was so friendly and accommodating I will come back to THIS hotel on my next trip to Rio

Great staff! Very helpful and friendly Tour guide service provided

Fantastic location! Excellent hospitality! Great breakfast!

Beautiful hotel right in front of the Ipanema beach. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff very nice, professional and helpful. The rooftop has a pool and a bar and the view is fantastic. We will go back again!

Great location ... Debra at front desk is great .. but they charged me for a towel - said it was stained- quite a strange experience

Nice hotel and great location. Pizza was not good. Restaurant was nice and breakfast was good.

NIce stay. Close to restaurants and shopping. The beach is right at your door. Great breakfast room (watch the beach while you eat) and lovely breakfast. Staff were very helpful.

I have nothing but great things to say about this excellent hotel from the check in to our very last day , we were treated in such a great hospitable way , we will be staying here next time we visit Rio . " LOVE IT"

staff was extremely nice and very helpful. took care of any questions and went above and beyond to take care of us

When checking in my room was not made up. While finding a newsroom staff bought me drinks and upgraded to dean view. Only problem was the down button never worked whole time. Had to walk down rep flights every time

The Best Western Ipanema Sol is across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The staff was very helpful in deciding where to go and what to do. I would go back here in a heart beat!

Ipanema Beach is the location for tourists and the Ipanema Sol is right on the waterfront near Leblon, Copacabana beaches and Lagoa so there plenty of places nearby to stroll. Breakfast room has a great view and excellent selection (the fruit was served ripe and delicious). Rooftop pool and gym are small but view is breathtaking. Rooms, though small, are clean, modern and comfortable. If you don't want to fork out double for 5 stars, but don't want to rub elbows with the real budget crowd, this is a great choice.

In general, it was a positive experience. However, the room cleanliness was not up to our expectations. The hotel has only two elevators, which must also be used by the service staff, and they are extremely slow

We spent 6 nights in June. Hotel Location 10/10. Staff: nice, not all speaks english but it s ok. Breakfast 10/10. Room: small but nice and clean. Reccomended. Max

The hotel is centrally located on the Ipanema beach. It is not a fancy hotel, but the price is if it were. There were several nice (expensive) restaurants on the streets behind the hotel. It is very safe to walk in this area as there is a strong police presence. The weather in May is 65-80 F and perfect for me.

Very nice for a one night stay with the location at the midpoint of Ipanema beach and many nearby restaurants. A very small, well-maintained hotel with helpful staff.

We regret the dissatisfaction experienced, especially regarding the hotel lift. During the summer - in which we have the hotel with the highest occupancy - our guest passage can be considerable and may generate greater movement at times of major flow but we have two lifts for daily use on regular basis. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Throughout the 44 years of uninterrupted operation of the hotel, the main objective has always been to exceed the expectation of the clients, counting on the frequent training of our employees and continuous renovation of the hotel facilities, and it is in pursuit of this goal that we will continue working . We would like to reinforce that you are absolutely important for us and we hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the future.

Dear Dale, Thank you for sharing a review of your experience I apologize most sincerely for the inconvenience you may have had. We thank you for taking your time and answered our questionnaire, which we have already forwarded to our Management and staff. Your comment is very important to us, once it is the only means we have to measure our services and premises. The face towel that has been charged to that customer was irrecoverable blemished with dark marks which was clearly used to clean shoe soles. Since the hotel has its own laundry, this deplorable fact was soon noticed by the staff and brought to the management, who authorized the charge which bothered the guest. We also clarify that the hotel's bath outfit is all made up of 600 g / m2 white premium towels and is provided to the customers with the highest satisfaction for its use and treat, but does not provide that they serve as a mop to clean shoes. It shall be a great pleasure to welcome you back in an early future! Best regards Sol Ipanema Hotel
