4/10
Bitterly disappointing!

The Marina Palace Hotel is billed as a “4-5 star hotel” but in reality is barely a 2-star. At the time that we went, the pool was closed and there was constant construction (e.g. noise). For a hotel with such a high rating, I would expect the staff to be not only friendly, but also fluent in several languages (including English), but they were neither. The rooms are dated; the bathrooms dark and rusty with mold-stained shower curtains. If we had not already pre-paid for the hotel as part of a package, we would have checked out. It was grossly overpriced and bitterly disappointing. Save your money and stay elsewhere!

Top Local Tips for Rio de Janeiro

Safety there is a lot of crime in Rio. However if you are an aware traveler, and you use taxi's, especially during the evening and when traveling to destinations that do not have a lot of tourists, then you should be fine. Dont dress like a tourist and leave any jewlery at the hotel.

Beggars There are a lot of people begging, especially children, in Rio. Ignore them all! You will be pestered, but eventually they will give up and go away. If you do decide to give in, take them to a coffee/food stall and buy them food, otherwise cash will go towards drugs. Carry the bare minimum in a bag that goes over your shoulder, not a handbag. Be very careful at night. Also be careful if you go into a favela, on the whole they are not safe places for a tourist, unless you go on a tour. But it's a lovely city and the people are generally very friendly.

Carnivale Go during Carnivale if at all possible. You will not likely ever experience a celebration to compare. And get into one of the Sunday or Monday night parades; some will still allow it, and you can purchase a costume as part of the process. You'll never forget it!
