Nice hotel with so so location!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2006

I stayed at the Merlin Copacabana on my first trip to Rio de Janeiro, some years ago. The hotel is very nice, though its location is not very good.

It's situated in the Copacabana area, but a bit far from the beachfront and the neighborood isn't very good. No restaurants around or good shops.

The rooms were very nice and large and so were the bathrooms. The breakfasts were superb, I remember, one of the hotel's best features. Plentiful and tasty, with many choices, from breads, several cakes, cheeses, cold meats, fresh juices, yogurts and cereals as well as warm items, sausages, bacon, eggs.

Like I said before, I liked the hotel very much but wouldn't stay here again due to its location. Rio is turning more dangerous and Copacabana area isn't one of the safest. If you want to go out at night to have some dinner it can be a bit scary to walk in that area.
