Good hotel with good service and pleasant staff. Windows to the street are well insulated from noise - unfortunately it is possible to hear noises from the neighbouring room (there was an adjoining door) and doors banging shut when they did the room cleaning. Breakfast gave good choices but the same thing each day essentially (if you want the hot food only or cold food only it would get monotonous). Comfortable bed, good size shower. Despite all the good points would still tend to say that it is overpriced for what one gets - but that is probably true for the rest of hotels in the area of Copacabana.

... Dacourt, as well as some brilliant Brazilians who it has to be said were just as good if not better than the ex pros. Pretty cool to watch but Al eventually had to tear himself away to meet Marisa from Pulse and her friend Maria (also an ex Pulser who is Brazilian and now lives in Rio). We headed to Dias Ferrias in Leblon (the fancy road) and ate some nibbles at a lovely tapas bar with cold beers watching the Holland v Brazil match with all the Brazilians cheering for the ...
... took place there and had we known about that at the time or if they had taken place when we were there, that would have changed our experience dramatically. Luckily, we did not experience any of that while we were in the Fan Fest and we had a great time.
We head to the apartment and check out our travel books to find a place to eat. We want a true churascurria (Brazilian steakhouse) tonight. We decide on Churascurria Palace, which ...
... souvenir shop then onto lunch at a Churrascaria- a buffet lunch where you get loaded with all types of meat cut straight off the skewer. Salad and vegs there too if you wanted them. Had a Brasilain drink- Caipirinha, very strong. I had a passion fruit one, Peter had a lemon one and couldn't drink it because it was too strong. He's still not 100%. Next we went up Sugarloaf Mountain in the cable car. Still hazy, crowded. Great view on a clear day. Home again, beach and market ...
Rio is manic. I'm not sure if this is simply because it was Carnaval or if this is everyday life. The queue for immigration at the airport was insane, and the two and a half hour wait rivals only my experience in New York. However, I didn't make it as far as the queue. Pity for the girl on crutches who looks like she hasn't slept in a bed for the past two nights meant I was directed towards the express line for crew and the elderly. Result. The shuttle from the airport crawled along ...

Overall when you look at how much money we spent here, we aren’t entirely sure if it was worth it. Of course we had a great time, but this sort of money can pay for almost a month of both of us travelling around a country like Vietnam….no more needed to be said!
