Where to stay in Rio De Janeiro

 Rio’s South Zone is the best place to stay if you’re a first-time visitor or you want to make the most of the beach. It includes the famous neighbourhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema and many of the best hotels, bars and restaurants. Also recommended is Centro, the historic city centre with its museums and monuments, and the quieter, more upmarket beach neighbourhood of Barra da Tijuca in the West Zone. Fortunately, there’s accommodation to suit every traveller and every pocket in Rio, from seaside resorts and boutique hotels to apartments, B&Bs and budget-friendly hostels. We’ve picked a few to help you out.

  • The celeb stay

    For the ultimate splurge, book a room at the famous five-star Copacabana Palace. This magnificent art deco luxury hotel overlooking Copacabana Beach, with its glamourous history of movies and film stars, will make you feel like a celebrity too! Enjoy sundowners on your private terrace with a view of the ocean, get pampered at the botanical spa, and enjoy fine dining at the Michelin-star restaurant.  

  • Cool and trendy

    Prefer accommodation that’s modern and edgy? Then the four-star Hotel Arpoador in Ipanema is a winner, plus it’s the only hotel in Rio where you get to walk directly onto the beach. Tip: Ask for a sea-facing room with a hammock for lazy afternoon naps. Active travellers don’t fret – the hotel offers rooftop yoga classes, a swimming pool and a gym.

  • So romantic

    For an arty, romantic vibe, check into Hotel Santa Teresa RJ-MGallery. Located in the charming hillside neighbourhood of Santa Teresa but still close to the city’s main attractions, this boutique hotel features upscale dining, a spa and a pool with stunning views over Guanabara Bay.

  • On a budget

    Watching your wallet? Ibis Rio De Janeiro Botafogo Hotel is a more affordable three-star hotel in the trendy neighbourhood of Botafogo. Features that get the thumbs up include Wi-Fi, breakfast buffet and easy access to the metro. Prefer self-catering? Then the stylish Sugar Loft Apartments in the Centro district make a good base. There are also several hostels to choose from, including the Hostel Maresias do Leme in Copacabana, known for its friendly hosts, fun atmosphere and resident pets!

  • Family-friendly

    Want to chill out with the family? The Grand Hyatt in Barra da Tijuca offers the perfect place with the bells and whistles plus the laid-back Pepe Beach on your doorstep. We also like Casa Gerario for its home-away-from-home feeling.
