Rio de Janeiro is the most incredible city and I could not recommend the Intercontinental more highly as a base for anyone visiting. The hotel was flawless: comfortable, spacious, balconies looking out onto the beach, a large pool. The concierge even got hold of two tickets to Lionel Richie at the last minute. This was the best week I have ever spent anywhere mainly for personal reasons but the accommodation being so spot on definitely contributed to that.
