My friend and I stayed at this hotel for a few days and, whilst we felt we were quite mis-sold on our twin bedroom (which looked nothing like the pictures on the website and was very basic, outdated and small), the outstanding receptionists, location and variety of their breakfast buffet improved our experience. I am aware of better quality hotels... More

the staff was very friendly all the time at reception or restaurant and helpful. A small hotel and you think you are in a family. The rooms are clean, well maintained and the safe worked properly.

I have been to Rio countless times and I always wondered about Arpoador Inn due to the great location. I finally stayed there and it was way more than I imagined.

We did not stay in the Hotel but ate in the beach front restaurant several times because the staff were very friendly and spoke some English. The food was good and reasonably priced. Great fresh seafood.

I stayed four nights here and overall I loved the stay.

The hotel is greatest located between Copacabana and Ipanema beaches and easy to get around. The Staff is very welcoming and helpful and we got upgraded to an ocean view room without asking and without extra charge. However, the room is very basic and little pricey.

Excellent location as you could walk out the hotel and down the beach. Appreciated the safe in the room. One of the concierges was excellent. The restaurant was surprisingly good. It was convenient to Ipanema and Copacabana. A nice refuge during Carnival.

The only hotel in Ipanema located right on the beach (the others are on the other side of the 4-lane coastal road), and next to the Arpoador rock, the location is great - but you also pay for it (equivalent hotels in other boroughs are less expensive)...

The hotel is very nice and clean as you would expect. But the best thing by far here is the staff. They are so friendly on the front desk (fluent in English), and very helpful with their advice about the city.
