Promenade Palladium Rio de Janeiro Reviews
Clean, luxurious suite in the heart of Leblon Jan 11, 2010
We booked a Deluxe Suite at the Promenade Palladium in Rio on the advice of TravBuddy member "BR-UNO", who is a local there. We are really glad we took his advice!
The Palladium is located in the heart of Leblon, a really nice, safe, and lovely area of Rio. It's basically where the movie stars and politicians live, and there were countless shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The famous beaches of Rio are also only a few blocks away. We felt safe walking around this area at all hours of the night, and there were always other people out and about.
We got a deluxe suite for around $240/night, which seems expensive, but a relative bargain when you consider the quality of the room and the hotel's amazing location, and the cost of comparable hotels in Rio. The room was like a mini-apartment, complete with a fridge and microwave (no stove, though). The bed was comfortable and clean.
There is a small pool and gym with some fitness machines, but we didn't make much use of them. There was also a very nice buffet breakfast every morning that was included with the cost of our room (possibly the best breakfast we had in Brazil).
The staff spoke English well and were always helpful and friendly.
The best part about the room and hotel, however, was something more undefinable. It was the feeling of relaxation and comfort that you get when you come home to a private refuge in the middle of a vibrant neighborhood and city.
