This is a great hotel if you are visiting Rio for Business or leisure!!!
I was there for Business and stayed for a week...love how close it was to the beach, SAFE, great service and value for the money.
Breakfast is included in your daily stay with a vast variety of everything you can think of...traditional big Brazilian Breakfast!

I have stayed in this hotel for more than 10 times in a period of 8 or more years . I am an expert . I considered a small kind of boutique hotel . The highest quality of this hotel is the location if you want to stay right in the middle of the Ipanema action . Right in Farme de Almodeo and right across the famous Farme gay beach. I consider the Ipanema plaza a decent property with nice size rooms that Need to be updated a bit especially the bathrooms . AC in the middle of the summer is not the stronger but always work ok. Beds are just standards as is service in general in the hotel . In Rio and in my opinion in brazil in general don't expect too much you will be disappointed especially for the prices that you pay. The hotel as all properties in Rio is overrated but you don't have any options . Otherwise you will finish in a really crapy place. Some of the rooms has a beautiful view of the beach and some has a balcony. Hotel is always busy . Expect to wait until check in time to get your room . Pool in the roof is a plus but small. You will love the breakfast in the morning with nice lay out and options . If you are looking for Ipanema options this is definitely a good one .other options sol Ipanema , Caesar park and the upscale fasano

Ipanema Plaza has a perfect location, close to the beach, in the heart of Ipanema and a few blocks away from Arpoador and Copacabana. My room was spacious, but the bathroom could be in better conditions. The bathtub was really old and had a dirty aspect. Also the breakfast was disappointing: not too many options and the brands of some items (jams, butter, teas) aren´t good.

The hotel is over priced compared to what one would expect for paying almost £ 230 a night. But guess this is down to its location - not direct on Ipanema beach but 5 mins away on a street perpendicular. In a hip part of town close to an area which has a decent set of bars and restaurants ( was smaller than what we expected, though).
Our room was a superior room whatever that is supposed to mean. The bed was huge and the room comfortable. Couldn't find any fault with it except the fact that despite the price there was no view of anything interesting. The bathroom is in severe need of refurbishment. All the fitting seem rusty and worn out and in dire need of a make over. Service was all right. The safety box in the room and televison didnt work upon arrival and took some following up before it got replaced.

Room Tip: Although the given wisdon is that Copa Cabana is not safe, I dont think it is true. Considering most...

I went tor Rio for a weekend late May while working in São Paulo. This hotel is walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The room was clean but it took a while for the AC to cool down the room. The hotel price was a little on the high side but I guess it's the price for being close to the beach. Like the other review, Brazil in general is expensive. So expect to shell out some cash when visiting.

If you stay in this hotel, look for their sign at the beach to get beach towel, chair and umbrella to use for free.

The check out time at this hotel is at noon. Don't wait till the last minute, otherwise you might get stuck behind a long line.
