Good-value hotel in an exclusive locale, with some marvellous views and easy access to Ipanema's chic restaurants and boutiques.

The Ipanema beachfront has some of the most expensive land values in the world: hardly surprising given the idyllic ocean views, soft white sand and proximity to the chic restaurants, boutiques, bars and clubs of Rio de Janeiro’s affluent Southern Zone. You can savour this exclusivity by staying at the good-value Hotel Sol Ipanema, one of the reliable Best Western chain’s superior properties. 

Located at Posto Nove where Rio's young, trendy and beautiful tend to congregate, the hotel offers a beach service with loungers and shades – plant yourself here on a weekend for the best people-watching opportunities.

The bright guestrooms are neutrally decorated and contemporary in style, equipped with air conditioning, safe, TV and minibar. Top category rooms have ocean vistas, as does the restaurant, whose marvellous sea views are topped only by those from the small rooftop pool. From here you can see the iconic twin rocks of the Dois Irmaõs at the end of the beach.

Our Expert's Opinion

The Sol has everything you need from a Rio hotel – a central beachfront location with plenty of places to eat nearby, spacious rooms overlooking Ipanema beach, and an intimate rooftop pool and bar. Sipping a caipirinha here and watching the sun set behind the Dos Irmaos is one of my favourite memories of Rio.
