We had a wonderful stay at Arpoador. Location is great and everyone very friendly. A few more gluten free and vegetarian options could be given at the restaurant. The rooms are very clean and have a good space. If you have a room on the back, the street can be quite loud, if you are sensitive to noise.

The room was not available upon arrival in the morning, which was a big nuisance, because I had to go to the office and had a full day of work ahead. I could take a shower at the top floor, near the swimming pool, which honestly was a hassle. Same story upon departure: my return flight was at 22h, but I had to leave the room at noon, so no option to take a shower in a normal way and change clothes in the evening. For business stays, this is a red flag and I'm afraid that for this reason me and my colleagues will not return to this hotel.

Honestly, I was expecting a better experience for its price. The room (#20, second-floor beachfront) has an awesome view, but it wasn't as clean as it should (very dirty under the bed and the shower was full of Psychoda cinerea - known as "mosca de banheiro"). Mattress was a little bit worn and, even with the good noise isolation (and earplugs), I had a bad time trying to sleep thanks to some guys listening to music at the beach from 2 to 5 am. The restaurant/bar on the first/ground floor is open to non-guests (ultra-busy on weekends), so the check-in/bathrooms/breakfast area are not that pleasant to stay in (during weekends, guests have the option to have their breakfast at the terrace - recommended). The terrace is small, any small group of friends (4+ people) almost owns the place. Despite that, the Hotel is beautiful, well placed, the staff is very kind and breakfast is OFF THE CHARTS!

Greatly locate md next to Ipanema beach and close to Copacabana beach as well. They provide great breakfast and also have dinner options. Also they have beach chairs and towels for guests to use and have a roof top pool where they also have yoga classes. Cant wait to go back!

Great location - friendly staff but overpriced. For this price range I expected more comfort. Rooms are small and somewhat cramped. Very busy restaurant facing the ocean - we preferred, for the short stay, to explore our gastronomical options nearby (weren’t disappointed). Will not come back.
