TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Mercure Leblon Rio de Janeiro
We chose to stay in Leblon as we wanted to get away from the major tourist centre in Copacabana. The apartments were very good, well maintained with a rooftop pool.
The surrounding area had some good food places (which were all relatively expensive, but that's Rio). One of the best was a bistro-type place just around the corner - good food and only about $30/head.
Views from the rooftop were excellent and access to the beach was about a 5 min walk straight down the road at the front of the hotel.
All in all, highly recommended.

Ali, worried about his knees had a rather good stint in goal before having an out of character spell up ...
... one attractive, the other, not so much). Nuts. Finally I go to the bathroom and now have to head back. Well that is just as brutal, since I have a general idea where Blake and David are, but am not 100% sure. After 15 minutes, dragging people with me and constantly grabbing down to make sure my phone and wallet are still on me, I make it back to them. No beers in my hands though, they understood. In total, 30 minutes to use the ...
Today we had a holiday. Lovely restful day. Woke up, went back to sleep, woke went back to sleep. Eventually made it to breakfast about 9:15. Wandered to the shops and bought a few things. Went to find some lunch via the beach and were the most overdressed people there, needed our bikini top and thong bottom on. All shapes and sizes but mostly brown. After lunch Peter and I borrowed bikes from the hotel (mine was the worst bike ever, no brakes, missing half a pedal ...
