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 The room ( 801) is smelly, and it is a bit outdated.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

The neighbourhood is great but I didn't feel safe with gas-fired water heater. Ventilation of gas fired appliances is very important and these are installed in the bathroom without windows. If they have special heaters for closed spaces (in case they exist) I would put this information on the heater. I slept with the windows open and could not relax.... More

The hotel is close to the best restaurants and bars, located in Leblon, good breakfast, nice and helpful staff. Rooms are small like all others in Rio. The pool is small and indoors. The hotel is 2 blocks away from the beach, I recommend......

Location! Quality of Service! Luxury! This place has it all. It was the perfect fit for my friends and I and Leblon is the most ideal part of Rio to spend time while on vacation. Enjoy! There are tons of shops restaurants and bars right outside of the hotel and the beach is right there!

Best neighbourhood in Rio, plenty of restaurants and bars around. Hotel not too crowded. Clean rooms,a bit basic.Professional and friendly multilingual staff. Poor Internet is the only minus, but overall an enjoyable stay

We loved it! Located in the best neighborhood of Rio - not crowded and less tourists so you can really feel how upper middle class people in Rio live. Tons of great restaurants within walking distance. The family rooms are great - clean and nice. This is not a luxurious 5 star hotel - so don't expect it to be... More

It was a very frustrating experience to be in the Ritz Plaza, Rio de Janeiro. The cost/benefit concept can not be applyed here. Although the room is very expesnive, it was too small. I couldn't store a single dress in the closet, there´s no ventilation in the bathroom and they are not kind enugh to offer free internet.

this hotel is well located, just 2 blocks away from the beach, very easy access to the "Calçadão", and lots of restaurants around at night. It's seams to be safe to walk around in the evening, and there's a juice and pastry bar near by that has incredible fruit juices, and it's open until late at night. The rooms are... More
