Happy, only the soundproofing is an issue
Nice hotel with a good breakfast buffet. Very helpful staff. Cannot compare with others in Rio (first time), but the soundproofing is inexistent. If your next door neighbours stay awake talking so will you.

Great location great value
This hotel has an amazing location - minutes to Ipanema beach, restaurants and cafes, short walk to Copacabana beach, bus stops, shops etc. The staff are helpful but special mention to Antonio who was friendly, pleasant and willing to assist with a smile. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the breakfast is amazing.

8/10 Very good

We had a pleasant stay in Arena Ipanema. The location is ideal for exploring Copacabana and Ipanema and accessible for Uber trips if you are going further afield. Room compact but had everything we needed. Noise from neighbouring guests is definitely an issue as it seems some walls are more than paper thin! Breakfast is adequate to set you up for the day and the staff are courteous and helpful. Pool isn’t quite the usual size! But who wants to use the roof terrace when Copacabana and Ipanema beaches are moments away?!

6/10 Good

Overpriced water even for European standards
Small room, not very comfortable. But what amazed me was paying 18 BRL for 2 bottles of 330 ml. At the supermarket you buy 5 l for 11 BRL just for reference. Do you really need to extort the tourists? Unnecessary profit.
