Arena Ipanema

It can be hard to find a hotel with a prime location without paying through the roof, but this hotel is perfectly positioned between Rio’s most famous beaches - Ipanema and Copacabana. With well-appointed rooms and modern decor, it’s a failsafe option.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Arena Ipanema
  • A firm staff favourite due to its cracking location and good value – it’s ideal for independent minded travellers seeking a comfortable and stylish base to explore this exciting colourful city

  • Don’t compromise on location – the hotel sits on the corner between the world-renowned beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema…the best of both worlds!

  • There’s an almost villagey feel to the surrounding area, easy and safe to wander around, plenty of places to eat and a promenade flecked with swaying palms

  • The hotel blends casual style with modern flair, with a real focus on sustainability and protecting Brazil’s rainforests and wildlife

Arena Ipanema is one of our favourite hotels in Rio. Both its location, modern design and spacious rooftop pool makes it a great option for both couples and families when exploring the city at length.

With just over 100 rooms, the hotel maintains a fairly intimate atmosphere, with friendly staff and personable service throughout. With eco-protection in mind, the hotel uses ecological furniture with wooden structures made from materials retrieved from sustainable forest management. With this in mind, guests can be sure that the hotel has sustainability at the forefront of its design to contribute to Brazil's rainforests and wildlife whilst delivering modern and contemporary decor.

The hotels restaurant, Otaviano, has a relaxing ambience and is the perfect place to unwind after a long flight or day of exploring. Offering a variety of dishes in both Brazilian and International cuisine, there is something for all tastes.
