Great hotel in a great location just 2 blocks from the beach in Leblon. I like the Leblon area of RIo because it is less congested, newer and is less "touristy". Great restaurants too in this upscale and affluent neighborhood, just one block north of the main street - the best most popular were one to two blocks west of the hotel. I had a junior suite with a microwave and mini fridge (and dishes and silverware) so being close to 2 grocery stores was a plus. Also, unusual for Rio, a 24 hour mini market right on the corner. The fitness center at this hotel is not really a fitness center, rather a multi machine with limited choices for sets of anything more than very basic.. Fortunately, there is a BodyTech gym less than a block away and was a good, well-equipped gym, but rather expensive, as gym proces go, for short term.
Nice hotel and excellent location. Front desk staff very helpfull. Nice breakfast. One block from the beach and half block from main avenue with restos and cafes. Clean. Very comfortable bed. If you have the chance to choose a room, choose a room located in upper floors, street could be little bit noise. Safe neighbourhood.
Our only problem was with communication with the staff, who spoke mostly Spanish, and a little English. Hotel was a bit pricey, but this happens during Carnival.
This hotel is in Leblon and two blocks from the beach. There are plenty of nice restaurants and shops very close to the hotel. I was especially impressed with all the staff. The front desk is very helpful and is usually staffed by at least one person who is bilingual (English). The cleaning staff did an excellent job in our room each day.
the location was superb. very safe neighborhood, close to beach, shopping, dining, nightlife. staff was very friendly and helpful. breakfast was great. elevator is tiny. having to pay for wi-fi was a definite negative. overall, would stay again.
Promenade Palladium is an excellent choice. You will save +/- $60 night if you do not mind being 1 block off the beach, but in the heart of Leblon area. Very safe and upscale neighborhood. I like this hotel because it is very modern and only has 6 floors (unlike the 20+ story hotels in front of the beach that are 30+ years old with elevators that can take up to 5 minutes to reach your floor). Spend the extra money and go for a Suite (small by US standards, but still wrth it). The hotel is within short walking distance to the finest Leblon restaurants and bars and only a 2 minute walk to the beach. Perfect for solo travelers, business travelers, and people wanting a little smaller and intimate modern hotel in Rio. Have stayed here twice and will definitely stay here again.
What a wonderful hotel! I added a night to my trip in Rio and needed a hotel quick. It turns out this was my favorite hotel of my world trip this year! Great value, one block to the beach, great staff that was so accomodating, they gave me an upgrade to a suite, but even the regular rooms are nice. Ask for a balcony room on the street side. It is right in the heart of Leblon and just a short walk into Ipanema. I am recomending this hotel to all my friends.
