    Fall of Angela on site, since the initial project was to go on the famous neighbor, the slab Bar, where we refuse to pay actual 40 admission per person just to have a few beers. Well, we were invited to the lookout of the Arvrão by a friendly employee, Lia. I didn't see the view from the Bar of the slab, but the view of the Arvrão is out of range. We make delicious cold beers, eat pastry and cookie portion of feijoada, all pretty good. The price is not of more modest, more worth it, really. Super helpful attendants. The idea of offering blankets to protect themselves from the icy blast is very unusual. The rise of the morro do Vidigal must be made by van or bike from the community, and the bike is an adventure aside, I recommend. In the evening, sunset views of Ipanema and Arpoador Beach, watching the light of lights, they're enjoying the live MUSIC. Fantastic!

    View is amazing, service at the bar is nota só great, the waiter was a bit lost and understaffed. The beer and food were good but pricy.

    Stunning views of Rio. There is a lovely bar and hostel. Great atmosphere. Live music. I felt completely safe, however I must say that I was there with a group of friends including one who has been living there for over 2 years. I walked alone to the shops in the streets to look for freshly prepared Açaí sorbet and was welcomed by friendly people. Great experience. I recommend going but of course be streetwise.

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.
