  • Very interesting Museum, due to the lack of structure of the building doesn't have more exposure, but worth visiting!

Where to stay in Joinville

Despite not drawing in a particularly large number of tourists, Joinville has a useful mix of budget, mid-range, and luxury options to suit travelers on all budgets. Many of the city's accommodations are geared toward businesspeople, with most hotels concentrated around the city center and offering clean and efficient lodging. Budget options typically consist of hotels of varying quality, although if you reserve in advance you may be able to secure a bed in the city's lone youth hostel. If you don't need to be close to the city center for business reasons, look to stay a bit further west in one of several hotels near Parque da Expoville.
