Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.

  • It was a great experience visiting this avenue during the World Cup. The organization seemed to be up to the challenge. There is a really nice view even from the far seats.  more »
  • The stadium is very big and has the ability to accommodate more that 70000 people. Its full 360 degrees view to all audience but the maintenance is not great.  more »

  • Beautiful architectural project, but they just forgot to design the landscape around the National Stadium. On Saturdays have some guided tours inside it.
  • It's a great stadium but unfortunately it's not been treated as it deserves.
  • At a cost of approximately US$ 1 billion to attend some soccer matches at the World Cup and Olympics, it is the greatest symbol of corruption in Brasilia...
  • I have several critics to the reform they made to the world cup of 2014. For me, it's undoubtedly not finished. Also seems a poor architetural project. Yes, you can se it from faraway, but it seems a bunch of collumns that need painting.
  • Excellent football arena. I totally endorse it. It is worth a visit!
