Many years ago I was an AFS student who was blessed to live with a Brazilian family in Leblon for a year. This February I returned (not for the first time) to Rio, with a group of friends for Carnaval. Three of us shared a room on the 12th floor. I expected two beds and a cot, but we had three single beds, arranged along one long wall. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The room was not big, but it was adequate, and there was an ocean peek from the one small window. The a/c worked well, and the bathroom had a good shower with fine water pressure and decent towels (two items that are not always up to par in Brasil). The breakfast was very nice; good coffee, lots of fresh fruits, juices, pastries, breads, cheeses, meats, and scrambled eggs (I didn't eat eggs though) which is included in the price of the room. I ate dinner in the hotel two nights, and it was good (although the fish was a little too salty) inexpensive, and convenient. The dining room service was friendly and responsive. Internet was very intermittent, and did not work at all in the room. The pool is about 6 feet x 6 feet--only kids used it, but the rooftop deck where the pool is located has a great view. This is not a luxury property, but it exceeded my expectations based on the other reviews I read on TripAdvisor. Having lived in Rio, the only reason I went during Carnaval is that that is what my friends wanted. I prefer Carnaval in a small town, and I prefer Rio any time other than Carnaval.
