Comfortable rooms, very good beds, mostly friendly staff. It's a nice location -- upscale, safe -- but too far from the town center and many tourist sites. Consequently, we spent a lot of money on cabs, or took a bus to the nearest metro station a couple of miles away. A new metro station was being built nearby (Jan. 2016).... More

We had booked a luxury room at this hotel to round off a holiday in Brazil. We had asked for a high floor and expected a balcony with views towards the sea. As we had stayed in Leblon at the start of the trip we had walked past the hotel and seen it from the outside. It looks very smart... More

The hotel is only a couple of blocks from Leblon beach so it's a great location for walking to the beach. There are heaps of cafes, shops, restaurants & supermarkets in the same area so you don't need to go far for anything. It's also close to bus stops for access to Cristo. The breakfast was excellent, lots of variety... More

Often it is the little things that mar a good hotel. In this case however I think it is the reverse. The hotel looks very nice and the list of facilities is impressive. However once you are in the hotel and need to make use of the facilities you find that things are not as they should be. On arrival... More

Best thing about this hotel is location. Located near best restaurants, short walk from beach. Hotel was recently updated, so all rooms are new, modern and very comfortable. Pool area is small and indoor but quite ok. Breakfast is good and served near pool area.

Hotels in Rio tend to be pricey, so among the options in Leblon/Ipanema this one is a good choice, especially for its location. Rooms are not outstanding, but breakfast is quite good and the staff at service desk was very gentle. Having booked a room for 3 people, the only problem we really had was that the convertible couch they... More

We spent one evening in this hotel due to its location. Just around the corner there is an active street with excellent restaurants and bars. The hotel is average. The room ( 801) is smelly, and it is a bit outdated. Small bathroom and you need to pay $ 2,00 for the wifi. In view of the cost if the... 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.
