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.

... was there and collected the funds. I paid Regina and everyone was happy! Thanks to my mother who struggled through the ordeal with me and used her card to get me the needed funds. Thanks Mom!! I love you more than words can say!!
The moral of the story is; don't go to Rio de Janeiro over the Holidays hoping to do it on the cheap! Everything is much more expensive than pretty much anywhere else in Brazil but the experience of exploring this truly amazing city is ...
... Near the end of one of the trails there is a walkway that leads right under one of the smaller falls. Once you start walking down the stairs keep to your right and you will find it. There is also a great panoramic picture on the lower trail as well.

... streets, music coming from every direction and lots of stalls and street Samba bands. We saw some street dancers which were just unbelievable... their feet were moving so fast! This was the REAL samba of Rio!
On Saturday we chilled on Ipanema beach for a couple of hours which was very hot. The sea was very cold though and there were some huge (at least for me) waves! I went in for a swim a couple of times and the current was ...
