Enjoy Beautiful Views Right on the Beach

Coveted Ipanema Beach Location

The Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema is perfectly situated on iconic Ipanema Beach for gorgeous views of nearby mountains and stunning Brazilian sunsets. The hotel is also conveniently located in the entertainment district with plenty of upscale restaurants and lively nightlife within walking distance. The Forum Ipanema Shopping Mall is a 5-minute walk. For easy exploration of other nearby attractions, a metro station is a short walk from the hotel. 

The Best Beaches and Sights

Veteran Rio visitors know the best beach for watching the toned and tanned soak up the sun is Posto 9, located next to the Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema. The hotel is also just minutes from Arpoador Beach, Rio's most popular surf spot. Leblon Beach, just over a mile away, is a favorite hangout for local singles and families. 

Of course, not everyone seeks beaches in Rio. The famed Hippie Fair, Ipanema's huge outdoor market, is a short walk from the hotel. Visitors can browse endless stalls of folk art, jewelry, crafts, and local food. For a bit of culture, two major art galleries, the Rio Atlantico and the Ipanema Art Gallery, are also about a mile away. The hotel is just 15 minutes from the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden; downtown Rio is about 6 miles to the north. 

You'll also find plenty of excellent restaurants near the hotel. Coffee lovers shouldn't miss the Brazilian joe from Cafeina, and no trip to the area is complete without pizza and beer from the fabled Garota de Ipanema, where the bossa nova hit "Girl from Ipanema" originated. 

Full-Service Amenities, Reasonable Rates

The Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema has upscale amenities including a poolside bar, concierge services, a hair salon, and rooftop terrace. It even offers guests towels, umbrellas, and chairs to take with them for a day at the beach. Breakfast is complimentary each morning, and the full-service restaurant and lounge offer 24-hour room service. 

Rooms feature fresh, modern decor with luxurious linens, marble baths, large glass-walled showers, and high-end European sinks and fixtures. Guests love the convenient in-room espresso coffee maker and luxe beverage blends. There's also a large LCD TV with premium cable and movie options. 

The Bottom Line

You can't beat the Best Western Plus Sol Ipanema's gorgeous Ipanema Beach location. The hotel offers a host of services and upscale amenities to please any vacationer.
