    Nice Hotel, Nice Area

    by

    Rooms are immaculate and among the largest I've had in Brazil; my bathroom, however, was small and the shower ran hot-and-cold.

    A so-so but complimentary breakfast is served in the first floor (second story) restaurant. I didn't try any other meal in the hotel. Room service is also available.

    The neighborhood is great, with many fine restaurants.

    Unique Quality: The rooftop pool is small, but little used and therefore 'user friendly.'

    The hotel's worst feature is its elevators. There are only two; they're small; and waits can run as long as 10 minutes. (However, you can sneak back to the service elevator and sometimes cut the delay.)

    The front desk exchanges currency at favourable rates.

    And I even had an ocean view room, kinda. Look closely and you'll see a bit of water.

    At US$66 a night (reserved through ipanema.com), the price is reasonable.

    Directions: On the corner of Av Alfránio de Melo Franco and Av Paiva (the main thoroughfare leading back to Ipanema), the hotel is two blocks from the beach and the airport bus. City buses run on Avs Paiva and Gen San Martin, a block away.

by NedHopkins about Four in Leblon, One at GIG

In Leblon:

¶ Le Coin (Av Ataulfo de Paiva 65) and Le Coin II (Av Gen San Martin, 43)
Good, hearty Brazilian and international cuisine at 'neighborhood restaurants.' Portions big enough for two (or three). Price: under R$30 (US$12).

¶ Barra Brasa (Av Afránio de Melo Franco 133, near Hotel Leblon Palace at the intersection of Avs Ataulfo de Pavia and Melo Franco)
A superb churrascaria, ranking close to Marius in Leme as the best I've tried. It's roomy and clean; its only disadvantage is that the place is very brightly lit. Price: under R$30.

¶ Sushi Leblon (Av Dias Ferreira 256)
The service is very slow, mostly because the place is always packed -- which is why the tables are so close together. The fish is very fresh -- an absolute must for sushi.

¶ Rest Demoiselle (Aeroporto Internacional, Galeão)
An unusually fine buffet for an airport, it also has a la carte service. Buffet price: R$25. Excellent food in all four restaurants:

¶ At Le Coin, 'Tournedor Diplomata" was a perfectly broiled steak at R$29,70. A fine 'Paella a Valenciana' at Le Coin II was R$26.

¶ The meats at Barra Brasa were well prepared and presented and the buffet large and varied -- with everything from salads to sashimi.

¶ At Sushi Leblon, the fish slices are larger than what you'd find in most places -- for about one-fourth what they'd cost in the US. I gorged myself for R$29.

¶ At Demoiselle the service was fast, the Saturday feijoada quite good.
