A very different Rio de Janeiro hotel

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the convention center. I had not realized that this hotel was part of the Accor chain of boutique hotels, very classy residence in a historic building. Being historic, it does not have an elevator. Being on a hill there are further steps down to the very select restaurant also used for breakfast. A lot of charm, very peaceful place in a noisy city, but I was not comfortable venturing into the streets around, a mix of classic building and run-down places. The view of the city and surroundings is stunning, but to get there your taxi or Uber needs to navigate cobblestone-covered winding and steep streets, something that gets old pretty quickly. There were no neighborhood restaurants, and the hotel restaurant is very chic, nouvelle cuisine (small portions) and expensive. The room, bedding, bathroom and amenities were first-class. The wi-fi was not secure, and there were few power sockets in the room for computer and other devices. So to summarize a mixed experience of a unique property with high-end appointments in a different part of Rio (i.e. not Copacabana) but with some limitations and oddities that come with the concept.
