NileGuide Expert Says:
Beach towels and umbrellas can be borrowed from the hotel - just ask at the front desk.

Hotel star rating:
This dinky little hotel has no views to speak of, but with a location just a few minutes' walk from the beach, it's unlikely you'll be spending too much time in your hotel room. The hotel was given a top-to-to facelift in 2007 and is now tastefully, if simply furnished. Close to the bars, restaurants and shops of Leblon, Ipanema Inn is one of the most affordable hotel options in the area. A good breakfast is served each day, there's public internet access, and a shop attached to the hotel sells colourful handicrafts that make excellent gifts.
