    Where to stay in Petropolis

    Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
