Staff were sometimes rude. Logistics (E.G. for breakfast buffet) poor, having to ask for refills etc. Despite booking a "Deluxe" room, ropes were apparently only available for higher categories... Rooms could do with upgrade, especially bathrooms need refurbishment.
Old interior Dirty smell
Staff not kind,clean,bathroom vero oli
The hotel is splendidly located, one block back from Ipanema Beach. The rooms are comfortable rather than luxurious. The (included) breakfast was truly excellent - whatever your culinary desires. We had need to both modify our booking and seek advice on a range of disparate topics. These were handled fully and curtesly by the front office staff - Roberta and Nathalia, in particular were bombarded with queries - which bus to catch to the Botanical Gardens or recommendatiob for an Italian restaurant - which never seemed too phase them. But even the staff with little or no command of English were always keen to help.
With the room windows open, the street sounds could be a little intrusive on a Friday and Saturday night - but isn't that one of the reasons you stay in Ipanema on the first place.
Very well located, just 50 meters away from Ipanema beach. The staff was quite fiendly and helpful. Breakfast had great quality, although it was not so varied. Glorious bar at the roof pool, with awesome views of the beach, lagoa and mountains around Rio. We enjoyed very much our stay in the Hotel.
Nowhere was informed Ipanema Superior Double Room had no chance of Twin Beds. It's not worth to pay the price difference for this special 16th floor. The rest of the rooms are really good also.
Location is great....
the gym facilities should definitely improve
Good, clean rooms however had a couple of problems with electric tripping when using hairdryer and tv losing signal. Both were dealt with quickly though.
I have stayed twice (total of 4 nights) in this hotel during my Brazil holiday. Both stays have been fantastic. Location of hotel, both for discovering Rio and enjoying the beach, is great. Bars, shopping etc. around the corner. Compared to other inner Rio hotels Ipanema Plaza is a tidy, recently refurbished place to stay. Helpful, friendly staff and good restaurant. Would definitely go their again!!!
The staff and the location was perfect I had a minor problem and the manager was very willing to accept a decision that was very acceptable to me and helped me enjoy my stay even more, considering he did not have to anything. His concern of wanting me to have no problems will make me a return customer. The restaurant, the roof top pool and the location all make this hotel part of a great Rio travel experience.
Not really a complaint there is a slight smell of mustiness at time when th central air conditioner is on The public rooms are fine. I realise that it is humid in Rio but this can detract from an otherwise outstanding hotel
Staff is friendly and helpfull. Location is the best,
Moving chairs at the roof top cafee generate lots of noise and rooms have low noise insulation. Cleaning with brooms that have stiff bristles generate noise. Putting teflon pads at the bottom of chair legs and using soft bristle brooms eleminates most of the noise issues.
Loved the location, service and extra service given (i.e. sparkling wine) when glasses were not delivered by 3 calls. Exceptional customer service. Much appreciated.
The top bar (roof) needed more staff to attend to drink preparation. My partner and I wanted to order drinks but the staff were 1. unable to speak English and 2. unable to provide Customer Service which resulted in us walking around and then walking away. Much more revenue could be achieved if the prices were lower (these drinks prices were not justifiable and drive people away from enjoying more than one drink, if that!) and if the ambiance was enhanced by friendly service (i.e. welcoming people for a start!) and perhaps latin style music. A lovely roof top that simply goes to waste!!
The Golden Tulip - Ipanema Plaza has a fantastic location. You are one quick block away from the beach. Not to mention you are extremely close to life-guard station #9, which is one of the beach's hot spots. Furthermore, the hotel is located on a street which is lined with great bars and restaurants - foodies rejoice! We felt very safe in Ipanema and had a great time exploring Rio!
The Golden Tulip - Ipanema Plaza was very pricey. However, this could have been due to our trip during the week of carnival. Also, be prepared to spend a lot on food. We easily spent $30-50 US per person per meal at the various restaurants in Ipanema. Keep in mind though that this is a nice part of town and we were there when prices were hiked throughout the city.
Location, location, location
Very slow front desk staff and the hotel needs some renovating!
The air conditioner does not work properly; there are no actual temperasture numbers on the dial for control; it also does not seem to remove humidity from the air. I had it on max and felt hot and sweaty...
The restaurant has a very nice breakfast (specially the fruits) and also very nice for dinner.
Poor internet connection.
