Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.

Coming in live from the most pimped out ride since Roxanne was doing her thang - Via Bariloche Bus Service. Since the age of 8 I have had the life ambition of flying first class (tells you a little about the sort of child I was) but after this 17 hr ride to Buenos from Puerta Iguazu I may just not need it.
To recap, last entry was following the Taratino epic that was Brasil Germany. Dan, Kai, Foggo and myself went to view Rio's luscious Jardims Botanico and massive lake ...

Then off we went to Copacabana beach to check out the Fan Fest - a huge park on the beach with one of the biggest screens I've seen, plenty of bars and many, many football fans. We'd heard many warnings about pickpockets/scams/dodgy people but we stayed together, protected our belongings ...
... t read in guide books. We went up the sugarloaf to watch the sunset, unfortunately on our way the weather turned and it ended up being a big of a cloudy sunset but it was still a great day. To finish the day she took to a local hangout to enjoy a pasty and beer by the water. It was such a great day and we were really lucky to be shown around by a local. Another day in Rio and more sights to see, we headed into Lapa to check out the famous steps ...
... little monkeys were climbing the trees all around, it seems they only wake up when the sun goes down. We took our time leaving as terrible tourists do, pointing out how adorable the monkeys were.
Though we wanted to leave the apartment and go out again, we were beat after walking around all day and getting up at 5am to catch the flight over. We spoke to some of our flatmates about the rising prices in Brazil and the overall unafforableness of Rio, and ...
I'm a bit behind on writing so I'll just put the last two days together. Saturday - I'd been really looking forward to today because we were going to São Cristovão Market. This is a 700 stall market that starts early Friday and ends Sunday night. To get there we road the subway and then took a taxi. It's a half hour drive there by taxi alone. The subway was a typical bIg city subway and we felt safe through the whole trip. I was just glad that Brian ...
