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.

... with restaurants, live music, market and sea. It is very safe to be out in night as you are not alone. It's a party place, one side you have night market (6 to 11 PM) and other side you have live music in restaurants. Perfect for a romantic evening/ night walk. Good food, shopping and local art can be find really cheap here. Buy gifts for your friends & relatives.

Not quite the relaxing beach we had imagined.
Alongside the road, people rode on bikes or ...
... an hour (apparently quite a short time for this attraction) and ascended the stairs to be greeted with fabulous views of both the statue and the city. We spent the rest of our time in Rio enjoying the beautiful beaches, drinking cocktails and sipping on freshly felled coconuts to keep cool - it was tough! However, it was also a tactical rest, as the journey to our next destination, Belize, involved an overnight stay at Rio airport, three flights, four countries, a taxi and a water ...
... next door! Yes, yes, this one is pacified and in fact, one of the nicest and most expensive in Rio. I will confess to being anxious and nervous about the thought of staying here, but on arrival, all of that disappeared. Instead, I am really fascinated about the way of life here, the architecture and running of the favela. It is like a semi closed off community that literally live in each other's pockets and all get along. Our choice to stay he came down to ...
... deep through the favela. Something that could easily turn bad.. We have heard two stories of tourists being killed, one was a german tourist who went to take a picture in a favela in rio a month before we arrived and got shot dead. The second was a Swiss a week ago who was also shot, I think he was up to some sketchy business in their however, so probably deserved it.. Either way that is the reasoning behind me not having any photos in the favela, I was not going to ...
