Luiz Leblon Guest House is in a fantastic location, although it proved a tad tricky to find at midnight when we arrived,as it isn't signposted outside. However once you have your bearings you can't go wrong. Luiz was an absolutely fantastic host and I always looked forward to breakfast. Great selection of fresh fruit ( some I had never tried...

We came as a big group to Luiz's Guest House. He managed us so well, and the breakfasts he prepared were amazing! The quality of the fruit was fresh and the cakes he baked was very special. Luiz was always around to share with us ideas about Brazil's culture and where he would recommend to go. The cleanliness was great,... More

This was a great experience ! The place is in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in RIO, two blocks away from the beach and endless options for restaurants. The host, Luiz, is super nice and extremely helpful. Room gets cleaned every day and the house itself is very clean and well kept. You will be minutes away from cultural... More

I stayed this House for two weeks, and had a very relaxed time. The apartment is secure and located in a safe area. Luiz helped me a lot to arrange rooms and transportations. Even for Asians, if you can speak English a little, you can stay this House without any problem and enjoy Rio.

This is odd. After the corporate charms of the Royal Tulip in Brasila I was looking forward to a bit of down-home charm as the TA reviews seemed to promise. It didn't quite work out. Let's start with the good stuff - the guest house is right on the spot in the main drag of Leblon, a young and vibrant... More

This family-run BB is right in the middle of Leblon, just 3 minutes from basically anything, including Ipanema beach, nice shops, good restaurants, and some popular bars. The breakfast is amazing: fresh fruit and juices, as well as varying specialties, such as cake, chocolates, exotic jams, etc. Rooms are clean, though arguably not particularly stylish. If you are sensitive to... More

We loved: the friendly welcome from the owner, for whom every guest is a special guest, and for whom nothing is too much trouble; the first floor location of the B&B; the location within an hour of the airport, and half an hour of Rio central; the excellent transport services, bus routes, nearby Metro station, and taxis right on the...

Luiz is a wonderful, super nice host who speaks English and helps you to find concerts or to get tickets for the Corcovado train. The breakfast is great, too, although no eggs were served. Being above a pub it is of course not the most quiet accommodation but you are in very short distance to the Leblon and Ipanema beaches.... More

Staying in Leblon

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
