I stayed in this hotel for a few days. Brilliant! It has a great location for a cultural holiday, near the MAM, the Museum of Fine Arts, Cinelandia and the airport. It cost $10 for a taxi between the hotel and the airport in 2012. It's peaceful with good service. Reasonable breakfast. There are metro and bus stops nearby.
I arrived in Rio de Janeiro planning to spend five days and four nights. I stayed at the Hotel Orla Copacabana, which is a four-star hotel but seems more like a five-star. The continental breakfast, with juice, fruit, tea, coffee and milk is great. I saw the highlights of the town on a city tour, seeing all the famous spots like the Maracana Stadium, Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Sambadrome etc ... and I swam at night on Copacabana beach, where I could appreciate the warmth of the Atlantic Ocean. This hotel has a great location opposite the beach, and comfortable rooms.
Z.bra Hotel was opened in December 2010, and has been attracting a lot of people, not only for its colours and modern design, but for its lively bar / lounge. The hotel has always impressed me with its creative solutions: just to cite one example, the beds are inspired by the famous Japanese capsules, so you have privacy and a space to plug in your devices. The bar is decorated with 1950's furniture. It's open from 4 to 11, and often hosts artistic exhibitions. You can enjoy free breakfast each morning, Wi-fi, computers with high-speed internet, dryer, safe, and more.
This B&B organization is based out of the Santa Teresa neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro. I had a fantastic, comfortable, fun and cheap experience, including cultural attractions. How does it work? According to your needs, Cama e Café family homes recommends a family for you to stay with, in a private room with breakfast. Taking advantage of the wonderful architecture of Santa Teresa, it has found a way to collaborate with the locals of the neighbourhood, allowing you to interact with local people, and stay in a beautiful place. The houses are usually amazing. I was fortunate to stay at 'Casa da Manoela' with a journalist and charming tour guide. It was so interesting to hear her talk about Rio that our breakfast (delicious and hearty) stretched until noon. Like almost all of Santa Teresa, the exterior goes unnoticed. Its interior, however, is like a fine art gallery. In short, there was a room with a panoramic views, a welcoming home, a lovely Rio local, and all at an amazingly cheap price.
Can anyone tell me the price of the rooms? I looked at the website and it doesn´t say anything about it. I would be very grateful if you could give me that information. I will travel with my mom, so we need a double. Thanks in advance!
This hotel offers one of the most beautiful views of all the hotels in the city of Rio de Janeiro. It's located on Avenida Niemeyer, close to the waterfront and Leblon, the most enchanting neighbourhood in the city. The rooms are very big (all with sea view), with air conditioning. There is a large common area for the guests. The Vidigalbergue is also known for its barbecue and weekend trails and trips organized by the owners. The daily rate is $ 35.
The hotel is located in the heart of Copacabana, four blocks from the beach and near a metro station, making it ideal for anyone looking to explore the city. You can travel without problems, whether by bus, metro, or on foot. It is located in an old stone house, and has both private and collective rooms. All the rooms have air conditioning and wi-fi.

The Lemon Spirit Hostel is a great option if you're looking for cheap accommodation in Rio de Janeiro. The location is great, just one block away from the famous Leblon beach, and close to bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and ATMs. You can stay in a 6-bed dorm for $55; the room was very large, with enough space to leave your bag or backpack in the drawer under the bed. There's a large shared bathroom, with a very nice shower. There's free wifi throughout the hostel, and some computers available. It also offers free breakfast - fruit, bread, cheese, ham, juice, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. You can book some tours here.

If I had to describe the Beludi House in one world, it would be "intimate". The breakfast isn't great, and it's located a few metres away from Christ the Redeemer, in a beautiful mansion at the end of a quiet street. Isabel and Adir will do anything to make you feel at home. The bright decor is a strong point, harmonious and welcoming. It has both private and shared rooms available, all very clean, tidy, and comfortable. There's a common kitchen, laundry area, balcony and two reception rooms. At the back it's all green with a beautiful waterfall, making it a unique place to stay in Rio.
I recommend this hotel. My parents always stay here when they're in town. It has parking, and is in a very nice neighbourhood, La Gloria. It's cozy, with a tasty cafe in the morning. Good, friendly service, and close to several tourist attractions. There are a few theatres nearby, and it's close to the airport, accessible by the subway.
At the time that this hostel was first opened, there were only nine shelters in the entire city of Rio. Today there are more than 100, and it seems like a new one is opened almost every day! This is a great option, with wonderful service. We were there in low season, but we still met people from all over Latin America, Europe, and the United States. There are dormitories or rooms with private bathrooms. The breakfast is delicious, and the pizza is great, too, with a classic Argentine barbecue on Friday. It's a quiet neighbourhood, close to everything - the beaches, including Copacabana, the shopping malls, bars, metro stations, and bus stops.
Finding a good place to stay in the city of Rio de Janeiro isn't easy. The city has plenty of hotels, but many are expensive. This is why the Hotel Bonita Ipanema came as a pleasant surprise. The former home of Tom Jobim, it is located in a very nice area of Rio, near the heart of Ipanema, only a few blocks from the beach. There are some shared dormitories, but I opted for a private room (with bathroom), which was still 50% cheaper than other rooms in the area. The rooms are simple, but the hotel also has a small swimming pool, a lounge and a bar. The breakfast is included in the price, and all rooms have wifi. A great option for staying in Rio on the cheap!
I'm a Carioca, born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, but although I live in the city I decided to spend one night in the Hotel Sofitel for the millennium eve, so I could enjoy the fireworks over Copacabana. The hotel is great, with a fantastic location, and it was an unforgettable way to ring in the new millennium. An incredible experience.
