I was disappointed with the size of the room, the sour attitude of the staff, bellboys are the exception. The breakfast buffet is good, but the restaurant is not pleasant, a pub that functions as a hotel restaurant. Every time I asked a question the answer was short and unhelpful. The rooms are super small and many are noisy. Make sure your room does not face Visconde de Piraja Avenue. Keep in mind that there is no gym, no pool, no common space to relax.
You may ask what are the pluses? Location is fabulous, safe, convenient, surrounded by bars, reataurants, boutiques, two blocks from the beach in the heart of Ipanema. The room is clean, has a nice size bathroom, with good water pressure, and efficient air conditioner which is a must in Rio. I was surprised that there is no tissue any place in the room. Some of the rooms have small size closets that fit shirts and pants only. Could not hang my summer dresses.
Rio has to improve its hotel options. I would return to Mar Ipanema only if I could not find a better alternative. For an average US $300 a night one expects more.
