Ritz Plaza Hotel Leblon
Ranked #176 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

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 - the indoor pool is small etc. but the staff is friendly and helpful and the total balance is excellent.
The rooms facing the back can be noisy during the weekend.
I'll love to stay here again while in Rio.

Stayed: June 2014

Good urban hotel in the area, not the Ritz Carlton but suits the needs Good multi language speaking staff, make sure AC is working strong in hot days.

Good job to their team, will probably repeat if available soon.

thanks!

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 comfortable and large with a big TV right in front of the bed, but the street noise is audible even on the 8th floor. The breakfast is very good, 4 types of juices, lots of fruit, hot stuff, bread, etc. The only thing that is not that impressive is the pool: the pool is small and indoor...

Not the best place to stay in rio. The hotel was probably a really cool place when it first opened but I get the impression it's changed owners and now is an average hotel. Long story short, the air conditioner above my bed leaked water on me all night. When I say leaked, I mean poured. Not ideal.

It's a nice hotel, located just next to Rio's most trendy neighborhood, Leblon. The rooms are ok, I stayed at a double with a balcony facing the sea. Although it is strategically located, I think that it is overpriced, as most of RJ hotels are.

We stayed at Windsor Atlantica for 3 nights and Ritz Plaza for 5. Leblon beats Copacabana by far -- I would never ever stay in the tourist trap that is Copacabana. What the Ritz makes up for in location and rooms, it completely lacks in the quality of front desk staff. For a boutique, trendy hotel, you generally expect good service from front desk staff. Also, there's no concierge -- just a pushy tour seller.

Pros: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Also, the rooms, amenities, and the general look of things are AMAZING.
Cons: No real concierge (in a city like Rio you really need them, especially if you don't speak Portuguese), bad quality of front desk staff, pushy tour seller/'concierge'.
Cherry on top: They don't have a loaner iron. If you need your clothes pressed, you have to get pressing services at the laundry, or if it's after business-hours, well, you are out of luck -- what kind of a hotel doesn't have an iron to lend guests?

Generally, I think they have a great infrastructure, great location and AMAZING rooms. Just need a few small touches and definitely some helpful/energetic/well-trained front staff, plus a real concierge.
