Location is one of Golden Tulip Rio Leme's most unique quality
Since it is in one of the most well-known neighborhoods in the "south zone" of Rio de Janeiro, visitors can enjoy quick and easy access to the Marvelous City's main tourist attractions, such as the main access roads to Galeão and Santos Dumont airports, and to the center of Rio - but guests all will experience the peaceful and family friendly atmosphere so typical of Leme. Important streets such as Atlântica Avenue, a famous avenue on the shore of Copacabana one block away, surround the hotel.
Golden Tulip Rio Leme is located one block from the beach in the Leme neighborhood near Leme Fort, on one of the most popular stretches of beach. Along the shore, new round kiosks are a great option for a seaside drink, and a short walk to the right will bring you to Leme Fort.
LEME FORT (FORTE DO LEME)
At Golden Tulip Rio Leme´s rooftop is possible to see Leme Fort, a military legacy full of history and beautiful views. To enter the fort, you will be required to pay an entrance fee and climb a trail to the top of the hill where you will see all of Copacabana Beach. For those who enjoy historical visits, this is also the chance to see the Duke of Caxias' fort, set up with cannons and other military arsenal.
SUGARLOAF (PÃO DE AÇÚCAR)
A ride on the 100-year-old glass-walled cable car brings with it the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro, especially at sunset.
A quick taxi ride brings our guests from the hotel to Arpoador and Ipanema beach. This stretch of beach between Copacabana and Leblon is perfect for a walk, peppered with sporting equipment shops and lively bars. Arpoador is where you will find world famous views found on postcards, featuring the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon with the outlines of the Dois Irmãos hills in the background. This is where the most beautiful sunsets in Rio de Janeiro can be witnessed.
This idyllic neighborhood, both near and far from Rio de Janeiro’s Zona Sul (south part of the city) offers the ideal setting for outdoor activities and for having a good chat. On the narrow Vermelha Beach one can find trailheads along Urca mountain and animated bars featuring live music. To go the relaxed route, simply grab a taxi to the Mureta da Urca, the cobblestone walkway along the water, a traditional, end of the day carioca meeting place.
Chosen as one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World in 2007, the Christ the Redeemer statue can be reached by taking the train in the neighborhood of Cosme Velho. This is one of Rio de Janeiro’s quintessential tours and is best appreciated during clear skies. An entire view of the city can be seen from the foot of the statue.
RODRIGO DE FREITAS LAGOON
At almost 8 kilometers in length and the most versatile public place in Rio de Janeiro, the area around the lagoon is excellent for runners and bicyclists. Football fields, volleyball and tennis courts, baseball fields, skateboard courses and bicycle and skating paths share the park with picnic areas and kiosk bars frequented by night. The area around the lagoon is one of the best areas in the city to get a breath of fresh air and be active.
Much more than a simple continuation of Ipanema beach, plenty of elegant restaurants, bars, exclusive boutiques and thriving nightlife are tucked away within the charming streets of Leblon. This neighborhood also features one of the city’s most chic shopping malls.
