We are back from our visit to Rio. We had a nice stay at the Leblon Inn--with some reservation. The Leblon Inn has terrific location, and excellent staff and services. The front of the hotel is nice and attractive as well as the restaurant and pool area. We felt safe to walk around the hotel area. Apartment 708 has beautiful view of the mountains and the ocean but needs major remodeling, painting of walls, bathroom ceiling and doors. It needs to have a better bathroom and more comfortable furniture. The beds are too hard/lumpy with no choice for changing the beds. The sofa was very uncomfortable. The two TVs in the apartment are old/outdated equipment. The fitness room is nothing. The Leblon Inn needs urgent updating and upgrading of its facilities. As it is, it should be offered at a lower rate. Thanks for your good services.
