    Hotel Arpoador was a wonderful place to stay in Rio! The staff -- both at the Front Desk, the restaurant and the room-cleaners -- were very nice without exception. (For example, check-out time was noon, but I didn't need to leave for the airport until 6 pm. Not only was I able to store my luggage there during the afternoon, but the Front Desk staff even volunteered that I could use the roof-top spa facilities to take a shower before leaving for the airport!) The location is excellent -- at the east end of Ipanema Beach, and just a couple blocks from Copacabana beach; also near a Metro stop. Great facilities, too: a restaurant (with excellent food, including the complimentary breakfast) that includes tables outdoors right on the beach, and a rooftop bar that is the perfect place from which to watch sunsets. I would stay there again without a moment's hesitation!

      Good value/nice design

      Rooms are on the smaller side, but big enough. The design is very nice and feels beach and modern. Hotel staff is pleasant and helpful (albeit check in was a bit slow). Early check in was a great option. Breakfast is included and Im we ate out on the little deck. The basic breakfast is cheese, meat, scrambled eggs, 3 homemade breads, yogurt and granola with honey, and a fruit bowl. Juice and coffee are also included. You can trade the regular breakfast for other items, or add on a la cart. Roof is great (Cristo view one way, beach the other) and wasn’t crowded.

      If you want to experience the best location and hotel amenities in Rio, then look no further. Hotel Arpoador has it all. Best place to catch the famous sunsets in Arpoador, complete with live music. It’s situated smack dab in the middle of Zona Sul, where you can walk in both directions of the beach and reach Leme (Posto 1) or Leblon (Posto 12). Where else can you relax on a hammock in your own room in Rio, where you can look out and view the beach that is just outside your balcony window? The rainshower was the best in luxury - offering heritage Granado products and an option to see the beach while you take a refreshing shower. Simply amazing! My only gripes are the front desk and the free daily breakfast options. We’ve stayed in other Rio hotels where the front desk staff were more quick and very efficient. We were also looking forward to a great breakfast buffet that introduces guests to Brazilian food culture, like pao de queijo and local fruits but these were unfortunately not offered during our stay. Aside from these, we look forward in coming back to this memorable hotel. Parabéns e muito obrigado, Hotel Arpoador!
