“great breakfast”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

great prize value. Location in the center of Ipanema walking distance to everywhere, just cross the street and you are at the beach with service from teh hotel. If you take the beach massage negotiate the prize. Perfect for watching sunset drinking some caipiroskas and beers. If you like walking or running on a shady day go through the rambla until teh copacabana palace. Its a huge very elegant hotel with a lovely indoor pool. Leading hotels quality i thought it was too serious for Rio, maybe when we are grown ups not a good choice for thirties couple wanna have fun because location is kind of far away from bars.
The ceasar rooms were cool modern, very decent for the prize. The top floor is beautifull for breakfast wich is amazing, have a hughe breakfast at the hotel it is worth it, the views are stunning! The pool is too small you dont actualy feel like using it, if they redecorated the terrace it would be a great spot but it is kind of old.
We went for dinner to the Fasano, try to get to the roof bar with amazing pool. Yes, it is cool but totally overrated, its not worth it , it doesnt feels like Rio spirit.
All in all i would totally recomend and go again to the Ceasar and spend the difference on dirnks on teh beach and restaurants around

Hi- I recently stayed at the Caesar Park Hotel in Rio. The location is great, but the service is just terrible and the facilities need serious maintenance. To make a long story short, the hotel refused to honor a winter collection promotion (which I had booked thru American Express Platinum Travel) and insisted that the rate was 33% higher than what I had in my reservation. This is despite the fact that I showed them a printed copy of my reservation and that an American Express Travel counselor spoke to the reservation duty at the hotel. Honestly, the whole experience was surreal. The people at the reception desk were so rude that I took the time to write their names down to complain to the hotel manager (Beatriiz Pereira, Amanda, and Frederico). Save yourself a bad time and go to the Fasano, Copacabana Palace or Ritz hotel in Ipanema. Seriously, the service at this hotel is a joke.

Room Tip: Avoid the Caesar Park. Go to the Fasano or Copacabana Palace. The Ritz Hotel is also well located an...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during a recent business trip.

This is a nice 4 star hotel with decent rooms and excellent service. Rooms were moderate in size but well-maintained and serviced although I understand there may be some suite options as well. I enjoyed breakfast and some room service meals at the hotel where menu was a bit limited but the food and service were very good.

The hotel is in a great location directly across the street from Ipanema Beach and accessible to many restaurants and shops, as well as, the city's diverse sightseeing attractions. The hotel's rooftop pool is small and located directly within sight of one of main restaurants so this should not be a focal point for choosing this hotel.

Overall, this is an excellent choice and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in beautiful Rio de Janeiro.

This is a very nice hotel right in the middle of Ipanema across the main road of course is the famous beach and it is very nice. Forget the pool at the hotel you want to go to the beach. There is a bar every couple of hundred feet on the beach where drinks are very good and cheap. The neighborhood behind the hotel is probably the most expensive in Rio with beautiful apartment buildings and many great places to eat. This is a good place to stay if you want to walk around the beaches and Leblon. Remember it is Rio not LasVegas where everything is new, here everything is older but still nice. I would recommend this hotel stayed here several times.

Room Tip: Ocean view of course.

This hotel has a perfect location on Ipanema beach which is fantastic for morning walks along the beach before and after work. There are also numerous great restaurants located a short walk away, as well as a decent shopping road two blocks behind the hotel. The rooms are a reasonable size and have all the amenities you would expect, however they are a bit worn and could do with refurbishment. However, the showers are powerful and brilliant. The gym on the top floor has fantastic views of the beach and also has several cardio and exercise machines as well as free weights. The breakfast is the best I've ever experienced with an amazing selection of fresh fruit, pastries, cooked breakfast, omelettes, cured meats, fresh juices etc and all eaten on the top floor with views over the ocean. You can also eat outside by the pool if you want (note that the pool is decorative only, it isn't long enough or deep enough to swim in). Ipanema certainly isn't a cheap location but this hotel is certainly nice and I recommend staying here.

If you think of a place to stay in Rio, this is Ipanema. And Caesar Park is not just there but right in front of the beach and close to the greatest bars and restaurants. The hotel is functional: spacious rooms, good concierge service (Vinicius was great), great beach service (towels and chairs), breathtaking view from the restaurant and good breakfast. But do not expect a wow factor or a charmng hotel. It lacks what is needed for a memorable experience, for a true 5-star-hotel. Service overall is irregular, design is not updated, food is just ok. You will not be pampered, but they charge you usd 500 per day for a standard room. Rio is so expensive that maybe this is the price for the location in a good hotel. I hope to come back once Sofitel brings it to their superior standard.

The hotel is right on the beach in ipanema and is quite beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and elegant. You can hear the sound of the oean from the room. Awesome. The breakfast is to die for. Only complaint: the pool is not properly a pool. Very small so don't plan to do laps. You can venture in the ocean.... I would go back
