Situated on a fairly quiet street in a popular upmarket resort area of Rio, this hotel delivered comfort and facilities that were very good. The staff were very helpful and most reception staff spoke a good level of english. The rooms are clean, well-equipped and stylish, cleaned to a good standard every day. The breakfast is a generous buffet-style affair, with the same foods every day (which might be become a problem if staying more than two weeks!). There is a small pool within the hotel and some meeting space in the foyer.
The area has a lot of nice small shops, there is a beautiful beach (leblon beach) about two minutes walk away. This area is not typical anarchic Rio, having the feel of a town area rather than a city. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Having read hundreds of reviews of the rather variable quality of Rio hotels, we were much relieved to find that the Ritz Plaza in Leblon was a good, safe, stylish and clean hotel with friendly staff.More
