It is the last stop of Rio's railway network, as well as a hub for connection with the city subway and a bus station. Central do Brasil was also a preeminent stop in the interstate Central do Brasil railroad, which did link Rio de Janeiro with São Paulo and Minas Gerais, though the railroad is now deactivated. The station is located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, along the Avenida Presidente Vargas and across from the Campo de Santana park.

  • Yes, the place is very nice, the buildings around too ... but there is no-man's land, without policing.

  • After many years spent in Brazil's central to see the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and got a good impression. It's still a beautiful architecture and this time was clean and less chaotic.

  • Very nice building, but for more than 150 years. Today, and a deposit of homeless people camping in your face and make the place too dangerous, in addition to receiving people from the slums and, unfortunately, bad characters.

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.
