Relax by the Beach at Hotel Praia Ipanema

Romantic Rooms with a View

Enjoy the beachfront Brazilian vacation you’ve dreamed about for less than you’d expect at Hotel Praia Ipanema. Despite its three-and-a-half star rating, it’s regarded by many as the best hotel in Ipanema.

That doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out the elements that make a vacation special. All rooms have picture postcard ocean views and the private balconies you need to properly admire them. If you can tear yourself away from the vista, the high-speed WiFi will help you stay connected to loved ones back home. The flat-screen televisions with cable channels and opulent rainfall showers also enhance the vacations of Hotel Praia Ipanema guests.

Just Steps From the Beach

Hotel Praia Ipanema is across the street from Posto 10, a favorite hangout for cashed-up locals and sports enthusiasts. Most days you’ll spot friends enjoying a game of volleyball, soccer, or frescobal on sands that are cleaner than those in Copacabana. The beach does get busy on weekends, so make sure you arrive early to stake a spot on the sand. The hotel’s complimentary towel, chair, and umbrella hire lets you make the most of your time at Posto 10.

While the beach is the hotel’s greatest draw, it’s also worth noting that Leblon Shopping is an easy nine-minute walk away. This chic multistorey mall boasts high-end Brazilian and foreign labels, good restaurants, a cinema, and more.

Hotel Praia Ipanema is also close to local bars, restaurants, cinemas, and public transport.

Resort-Style Features at Three-and-a-Half Star Hotel

It might have just three-and-a-half stars, but there’s nothing missing from the Hotel Praia Ipanema. Guests can work up a sweat in the fitness center or sauna, or forget the diet and savor Chef Patrick Bolle’s special dishes on the mezzanine-level restaurant. For a more exclusive experience, hang out in the penthouse’s 7zero6 Lounge. This beautiful poolside bar is famous for its Caipirinha cocktails, a local specialty.

The Bottom Line

The Hotel Praia Ipanema is what many people have in mind when they decide to travel to Brazil. Its close proximity to the beach, ocean views, and relaxed vibe make it easy to forget about the stresses of everyday life. The rooms are simple and don’t have the polish of four- and five-star establishments, but they are clean and well-kept. Most guests agree that it’s worth sacrificing a little luxury for the Hotel Praia’s combination of location and price.

Expert Reviews
A solid upper-middle-range option with an excellent location in a quieter neighborhood... the free breakfast buffet is a good value.

Ipanema beach-front hotel on the border of Ipanema and Leblon with a nice rooftop pool deck. Well-located and well-priced for such a desirable location.
