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.

  • Great Museum! It was very empty. Good for us, but really pity.
  • Irreplaceable. We are hoping that the return of the Derby Cinema come to strengthen the alternative options and kind of having quality Cinema as a tool of critical reflection and personal development, which the Museum's Cinema has been doing these last few days.
