Luxury boutiques in Rio de Janeiro are few and far between. The city is certainly more well-known for the larger hotels that line the beachfronts of the most famous city beaches such as Ipanema and Copacabana. Janeiro Hotel is a radically different offering, presenting a smaller-scale luxury hotel on the lesser known Leblon beach, one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Rio.


How to Get There

Leblon beach is approximately a 50-minute drive from Rio International airport and a mere 30 minutes from Santos Dumont inner-city airport. Of course, transfer times may vary according to Rio’s dreadful traffic, but the hotel is centrally located and easy to reach.
