Super friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food. Restaurant view was ideal being one floor up with windows facing the ocean. Attentive wait staff. Included breakfast was a rich buffet. A small rooftop patio but still a great view up and down the beach with a refreshing little pool. Proximity to beach couldn't be better with towel and chair service provided. Main street of Ipanema was only a few blocks in, Leblon shopping a good walk of short taxi ride. Room was clean and spacious with all amenities and a huge window view of ocean. Nespresso coffee system in room. Window could be opened wide for sea breeze and sound of surf - and traffic.
Great location on Ipanema Beach. Great breakfast. Internet works well. Bed is comfortable.
Rooms are small if that's a concern. Front desk not the friendliest bunch. You have to register with an ID, any guest who would come to your room.
Overall it's a nice hotel if you can get a discounted rate but not for the full price.
Visconti is close to the Ipanema action, too close in fact for our first night where they partied until 0430 in the morning. Hotel were great and immediately moved us away from the distraction.
Staff particularly helpful and rom servicing was excellent. Would stay there again.
The hotel is small yet the rooms are ample, especially the ones facing the sea. The advantage of them is no traffic noise, only the sound of the sea. The restaurant has been recently remodeled and it is highly recommended. Breakfast is top notch, as well as dining all day. The outdoor tables by the sea are quite unique in Rio. The best is the service, especially from the reception and the restaurant staffs.
You will not regret coming here.
For the money, can't beat the location. Short stroll 2 blocks to Ipanema beach, nightlife nearby, and easy walk to various dining and shopping R. Visc. de Piraja, the main commercial street that runs parallel 2 blocks off the beach. My favorite thing about the hotel, however, was the staff....super friendly staff, very sincere and always with a smile. Room was plenty spacious, more room than I needed. Bathroom not big, but also did the job, though some might not like the shampoo/shower gel dispensers (as opposed to small bottles), but it was totally fine for me. Unlike other properties, they actually make irons available on request, which I appreciated.

Forever immortalized by the 1960s bossa nova hit, “The Girl from Ipanema,” Ipanema remains at the vanguard of Rio beach society and nightlife. On Sundays, Rio’s tanned denizens socialize along Avenida Vieira Souto, which is closed to car traffic for this weekly event. West of Ipanema, Leblon tends to be less crowded than other city beaches. Rio’s botanical gardens lie directly north of Leblon.
