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.

Walked over to Urca, but other than a prom with nice breezes & views towards Botofago, and a tiny beach, little to recommend it, including my lunch at the Garota – strange, but popular name for local eateries.
Bus from there to Leblon and then walked back along ...
... to a street party thats on every weekend last night, it was pretty crazy. People just walking around selling shots and little stalls selling drinks. I only needed to buy a couple because they were so strong.
Heading to Costa Rica tomorrow and starting with the turtles on Monday so I'll be out of contact for a week.
... selection of the best salads I have seen in a long time... From there we went to the nightclub district of Rio called Lapa, this is in historical downtown and you can find live samba music everywhere. We went to a place called Rio Scenarium, it has the kooky factor ramped up to 11 thanks to the fact that this venue for samba shows is also a storage space for antiques and film props, fascinating costumes, masks and ...
