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.

We wandered along the surf, taking in the sights, sounds and the ridiculously ...

The highlight for us was the Sambadrome. This 750m long stadium is where the samba schools or clubs, of Rio showcase their song, costumes and floats that have been ...
... They were fired from several barges just off the shore and went on for about twenty minutes! So that was my New Year's Celebration!
Everything was closed on New Year's Day so I hung out in the apartment until about 3:00pm then went to the beach for a relaxing afternoon and evening. I had found a little yogurt place just around the corner from the apartment that had WiFi and I got their password so now I could get online any time using their WiFi. There is ...
