Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.

  • only thing to see is a room of paintings. cannot go into the tower. luckily it's free but the sign in takes longer then looking at the paintings  more »
  • A historic Tower, however this rundown and without local activities that bring the public, with area that should be used for exhibition of art and cultural activities. The times's exposure, but nothing to draw attention.

  • The tower is one of the really important sights to be visited during the cultural tuor in Recife! Admission is free, friendly and helpful staff and has an ancient structure preserved. On the top floor of the Tower has an Observatory with telescopes to observe the stars. Downstairs has arts and exhibitions on the ground floor has the story of the tower that is worth knowing. As the saying goes ... until Brazilian shot in forehead ...:) It is one of the main turist point of the city to visit, It has a beautifull story and It is free entrance. At the top there is a telescopic where you can be the stars (planets and Stars). Very close to ground zero.

  • A historic place, tourist, with a magnificent view and offering a beautiful astronomical observation service for free. In addition to also house art exhibitions. The Government should take better care of the maintenance of the Malakoff Tower!

  • Space once housed and houses several interesting exhibitions, with immersion in ancient history of the city. The view from the top of the tower is to leave any mean. Free visitation.

  • The Tower has a wonderful view of ground zero. The iron door is awesome. Unfortunately, the elevator is broken and are 133 steps.
