I stayed here for 1 week as a single female traveller and had a fantastic time. The hotel is in an amazing position on the eastern end of Ipanema beach - just where Ipanema and Copacabana beaches meet. The area is very safe and I was able to come and go during the day and until midnight at night without...

Helpful staff, wonderful outdoor cafe` out back, just off the Ocean. The rooms are small, though nice and clean, with an ample - sized bathroom. Breakfast included. My only complaint is that there is no gym .

We loved our stay at Arpoador Inn! This hotel is a hidden jewel and has one of the best locations on Ipanema beach. The Arpoador is quaint, charming, and personable filled with beautiful scenic views of the Ipanema shoreline. The manager, Davi, and the staff were so kind and welcoming, and they made sure our stays were exceptional (we liked...

The only hotel on the beach in Rio, all the other ones have a large streets in front (Copacabana, Ipanema), but not this one. Wonderful staff, very helpful. Nice breakfast directly on the beach! I'll definitely come back!

Location of the hotel is very nice, just on Ipanema beach. The staff and the service were excellent. Also Breakfast was enough for me even I know some people would maybe like to get more variety. All in all I can highly recommend this place.

We stayed at the hotel for the third time, but also the first one since the renewal. The staff is so very kind and helpful, the room so comfortable! We had a cot specially fixed for our baby, with baby bath products and fruits. Breakfast at Hotel Arpoador isn't only delicious but has the best view. Hope to return soon!

I didn't get a view, but the room was clean if small-ish, the staff was great and the location was superlative. If I go back to Rio i might stay in Leblon, but otherwise here. Decent wifi. Good restaurant and exceptional breakfast with a patio on the beach.

We didn't stay here but I couldn't work out how to just review the restaurant. The food was amazing as were the caiprinhas. We sat at a table outside watching the waves roll in on Ipanema beach. We spent a very relaxing couple of hours here.
