I say marred because the restaurant was being renovated and we were offered breakfast across the street at San Marcos. The location convenient but breakfast was very poor. The room for eating depressing. Mar Ipanema should have served cold buffet on 11th floor. The view would have been great and service had to be better than San Marcos. Mar Ipanema lovely hotel. Rooms well appointed. Front desk personnel spoke English. If not for the breakfast it would have been perfect.

Perfect place to stay in Ipane....
I really enjoyed my stay at this place, people there are really welcoming and ready to help you (I even had the chance to check in earlier). Moreover they speak English what is not obvious in Brasil.
The room was really nice and clean as the bathroom. Very confortable bedding too.
The location is optimal in Rio on the best shopping street of Ipanema and near the Ipanema beach (2 blocks from

First time in Brazil--Really n....
This being my first time in Brazil and I was pleasantly surprised!!! Upon arrival the front Desk clerk (Joe) had our reservation waiting and the bell boy (Doug) eager to help with our luggage. It was a very easy check-in. We were given out keys and escorted to the elevator. Our room was on the 3rd floor. The hallway was a little warm i noticed, but it is normal for the hallway in Brazil not to be air conditioned. The room was very clean, king size bed, very modern. The room had a closet, drawers, desk, safe, 2 end table with lamps on the side of the bed. Air condition, the windows can open if you want fresh air, laminate floors. The bathroom was modern and very clean. Our room had a hair dryer, towels, a shower, with shampoo, soap and drinking glasses. The hotel offers free breakfast!! Their breakfast is the bomb!!! I can not tell you enough how wonderful the breakfast was.....The hotel has a restaurant connected to it, but you have to pay for your lunch, dinner, etc directly to the restaurant itself. The hotel will give you a beach umbrella, chairs and towels free of charge to use at the beach with is literally a 5 minute walk. If it is raining outside the front desk will give you an umbrella to use as well. The will fetch a taxi for you. They have tour packages at great prices. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I felt very safe as the hotel staff was vigilant and security was present. A couple of times we had a problem with the remotes and maintenance came right away to fix the problem. The location of this hotel is optimal, as it is close to the beaches, and many tours attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel. As the staff to remove items in the refrigerator as they are very expense. There are many stores across the street that you can buy water and other item for a better price.
If you need to exchange money, there is a mini mall on the left side of the hotel (restaurant side) that has great rates.
If you need to receive money and you are american, you must go to the Main Western Union office in Copacabana which is only 10 minutes away by taxi.
I would recommend while staying local walk or taxi only!
Please go to the roof top and take a look at the view. It is absolutely gorgeous!!! The roof top has a gym and spa with lounging chairs.
Thank you Joe, Marco, Douglas and the other staff members for the wonderful service!! God bless

A very competitively priced hotel for Ipanema with an excellent standard of accommodation. Perfect location for beach, shops and restaurants. Comfortable rooms, very good breakfast and fabulous staff.

Clean modern hotel in convenie....
For the price, it's hard to beat the Mar Ipanema hotel. Good value for your money. I only stayed here one night and had an excellent experience. I've noticed several four star reviews with complaints about room size, so perhaps I lucked out. The room, facing the street on a higher floor, was quite large, with modern facilities, good shower, AC, comfortable bed, and working television. I would have been happy to stay here longer.
The hotel is a few blocks from the beach in the heart of Ipanema, with good restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and shopping minutes away. The hotel is on a busy street frequented by locals and tourists alike that remains busy late into the night (an important element when considering safety). With respect to safety concerns (I know this is a common concern), please note that Ipanema is easily the safest option in Rio; the south (Ipanema and Copacabana specifically) is generally considered equally safe, but Ipanema--a higher class and more swanky neighborhood--feels safer with a lower likelihood of confronting issues (both neighborhoods are swamped with hotels, but more tourists in Copa overall, thus more potential problems. At least that was my rationalization).
While the hotel is in the center of Ipanema and technically somewhat far from Copacabana, walking there is not difficult. It took me approximately 30-40 minutes to walk to Copa and another 15 to Leblon. Lago is also quite close.
For the value and location, I definitely recommend Mar Ipanema.
