Metrô Bartholomeu Mitre
In Rio's most expensive neighbourhood on the corner of Ataulfo da Paiva and Bartolomeu Mitre stands the Mercure apart-hotel, ideally located for the enticing bars and top quality restaurants that Leblon has in spades. The spacious apartments with living room, bedroom and kitchen are adequately decorated but will certainly not win any interior design awards, so the outdoor swimming pool on the top floor helps to save the day. Of course, even without breakfast included (R$25), this kind of location and convenience does not come cheap.
