    This is a mall where you must go! The view from the terrace is very beautiful! Can you take good pictures. There are several options of comimda too.

    The Mall has a variety of shops and very good. It is common to find deals on shopping. The cinemas are great. Highlight to the view on the top floor of the Mall. Spectacular! I think the Mall could have a better structure of elevators and accessibility. In days of much movement, the elevators are full, does not flow. I would add also that the elevator was not up to the top floor. We had to stop in the penultimate and climb the stairs.

    Shopping small and with a strange Division. But when you get on the roof is too beautiful. Maybe for whoever the beach look dull ... but to a Paulista view that picture window is magical.

    Because of the vertical nature of this mall, it might take some time to find out a particular store. Plus, there restaurants and eateries are spread around multiple floors, which can be confusing. Still, this mall has two things going for it. First, its location is very convenient and it is easily accessible from Botafogo hotels. Second, its top floor has an amazing view of the Guanabara Bay. It is breathtakingly beautiful in a clear day.

    It's not too expensive plus it's very accessible (not too fat from subway stations or major bus lines)

    A shopping Center located in an old Sears store building. Lots of escalators. Nice free view from the upper floor sacade. Cinemas, restaurants, fast food joints including McDonald's, Burger King and subway.

    Good selection of fast food and a (fairly limited) selection of shops. Good for a trip if you get a rainy day, as we did

    A very upmarket shopping center, which will cater to most of your needs. A foos court is available on the top two floors with the very top floor having a great free viewing deck of the Sugar loaf mountain.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
