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.

... been looked through. Luckily we carry our valuable things with us but it was altogether creepy. There wasn't anything we could do about it so we went to a 'Kilo Restaurant' around the corner for dinner - buffet style, where you put what you want on your plate, take it to the weighing station and have a sticker put on a card. You can refill the plate as many times as you like with starters, salads, mains and sweets and have it weighed. Then when you have finished, you pay for ...
... at us as the darkness of night introduced itself. After our daily dose of Caipirinhas, we headed back to our beloved 'Simples mente' restaurant in Santa Teresa (of course!) for dinner and a few drinks, before popping back to the B&B to change for a few drinks out on the town! You cannot come to Rio without heading down to the Lapa Arches in the Lapa district where Rio's nightlife is booming... Streams of food and Caipirinha stalls and samba bands playing in ...
... konnte, war es immer noch dieselbe Stadt. Weiter fuhren wir mit der nächsten Gondel nun auf den Zuckerhut. Erstaunlicherweise waren hier oben we***** Leute als auf der Jesusstatue gestern. Gegen Mittag fuhren wir wieder runter, weil wir noch unsere Tickets für den Sambadromo in einem Hotel abholen mussten. Dies lief sehr flüssig und so hatten wir innerhalb von nur 45 Minuten unsere Tickets für den Abend. Wir wollten noch etwas Zu Essen einkaufen und suchten einen Supermarkt auf. Wie ...
... I think few people realise how close the favelas are to the more affluent neighbourhoods and sometimes things spill over. The situation we found ourselves in was quite a surprise to us as that area is full of tourists and generally not considered dangerous. There is however slums nearby from which a huge group of barefoot, topless boys (probably about 12-14 so really quite young still) came running at full speed through the bus station. We ...
... further, the start of the runway of the national Drumont airport. Funny, when a plane gives full power, the ocean water behind it fumes up!
Already on my way back home, I passed the Glória and Catete neighbourhoods, and enjoyed the Largo de Machado, a nice plaza with flower shops, a little market, people sitting there and men playing cards. There I will also have to stand in the line to buy a ticket for the visit at ...
