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.

... ended at the beach on copacabana :) there was also a hiccup a little bit of a wait before dinner at a local bank where the atm almost ate my card! Day 2: Moved to our next airbnb apartment stay at another part of copacabana. The walk (11 blocks) was so terrible in the humid heat! Settled in, rested and then popped out for a quick eat at the beach before heading home again to shower from the heat. The beach is spectacular for people watching, seeing ...
... caused things to degrade on the streets. There were now bottomless men, topless transvestites, sunburned and passed out drunk partiers and people peeing on the side of buildings during daylight. We stopped for another hour and watched a high level beach volleyball game and then headed back to the hotel for dinner at the hotel restaurant. Tomorrow we fly to Chile! (Unfortunately no photos as we didn't carry the iPhone with ...
... to the city.
In reality it was disappointing- hefty fees to get into bars
where dancing was claimed to be about to happen, and no dancing in the streets
whatever. All there seemed to be was hordes of drunken youths spilling out of
bars onto the streets, and a huge police presence. For the first time in Rio we
