Location is a little bit hard since it is like between Leblon and Barra. If you are going to Rio to go out I would focus more in Leblon, Ipanema for the location. If...

Good quality hotel in a very nice zona sul area. Long from the main RJ attractions but great for the aficionados. Gym management is a bit too strict on clothing requirements and I couldn't use it. Too bad
