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.

... and it's just around the corner. Yummy selection and hard to choose but I decided on a seafood paella and a Brazilian red. Good choice - beautifully cooked rice, prawns, squid and fish and very tasty too! The first afternoon and evening now well and truly over - time for a rest - tomorrow we are walking to Ipanema Beach for a swim and to explore the huge Sunday Hippie Markets , just an hour away along the boardwalk.

... day before we left Rio we took the local bus down to Copacabana beach; the most famous beach in Rio as it stretches 4km alongside the city. We walked along the crowded beach and felt immersed into the hustle and bustle it all...there were hundreds of vendors selling eveything from the usual sarongs, ice creams and jewellery, to skewered cheese and kebabs on handheld BBQs. Not quite the relaxing beach we had imagined.
Alongside the road, people rode on bikes or ...
... A chain of mountains divides the city (north from south) and after crossing through the tunnel - the southern part of the city is the tourist area - the area most people are familiar with - Copacabana....Ipanema....and of course the iconical Christ the Redeemer statue. Population data - 10 million people in the metro Rio area and 6.3 million in Rio proper. There are 200 million people in Brazil and 17 million in Sao Paolo. Today about 70% ...
... the screen. You couldn't move so all our legs felt worse for wear the next day. As the game headed into extra time the tension had really grown and the Argies were starting to break down with the stress and then Germany scored with 7 minutes left... the beach went silent apart from a few muffled German cheers. As they accepted their fate, somewhat surprisingly, rather than an angry, loud reaction the Argentinians either clapped or just cried. It was quite sad to see but I ...
... news about Neymar broke. Anger spread as quickly as the news. Comments like 'I hope that columbian player has already left the country' and 'I can't believe it we have gone from favourites to the underdog...now we just have to hope Argentina does not win ' were voiced. Anyway this was all small fry...compared to the big game this morning. I was the new international signing for my friend Augusto's 7-a-side team. I was feeling pretty confident of my ability until I saw this goal ...
