Decent, clean hotel with tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Nothing fancy but reasonable value for Rio, and on a busy road so felt safe. It's in Catete which is a good midpoint between the main areas in Rio also, so pretty easy to get most places, and a pleasant walk to sugar loaf.

They now use cars designed by the Swiss which is evident by all of the advertising from Victorinox. I had ...
... there. You can see all of Rio De Jeneiro. It is just amazing. We spent a while taking in the scenery then made our descent to Cosma Velho. Got a bus to Urca then walked to the bottom of sugar loaf mountain where we got the gondola up. The gondola goes up half way where you get off to look at the views (and/or take silly pictures!) then into another gondola to the top. We arrived early so we could get prime position to watch the sun set over rio. Perfect:) NB ...
Going on the Favellas tour was very very interesting. What you think about Favellas is completely false. Facts about the Favellas we learnt today: - 20% of Rios population lives in the Favellas - The Favella we went to was called Rocinha. It is one of the biggest Favellas in Rio. - All the Favelas were hand built. - There were no roads back in the 1950s and 60s when the ...
