The Ouro Verde, in Copacabana: an old Rio classic gone downhill

The Ouro Verde hotel, once a mainstay for Rio's high society, has sadly gone downhill. Rumours say it might even close down, since the current operators haven't paid the rent, but for the time being, it's still up and running... sorta.

These photos, taken in October, 2008, tell the story.

Lately, the lobby bar has been used to host parties, but other than that the place seems pretty lifeless.
