Our 3-star select-services Peermont Metcourt hotel at Rio is a true reflection of the exhilaration and exuberance of the Rio Carnival in Brazil, in-line with the theme, the hotel’s interior is decorated in pink, white and touches of azure blue. Strategically placed lighting in the private and public areas enhances the clean, contemporary style, so does the Brazilian-style mural in each of the 70 bedrooms. The hotel is styled for both comfort and convenience suitable for business and leisure travellers. MESE
