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.

  • For photographers: This is your postcard view of Rio. It has the classic view of the bays surrounding Sugarloaf. I was here very early in the morning, just before sunrise. Carpark is very dark as well...  more »

  • If you are catching a taxi to Christ the Redeemer this is definitely worth a stop off for views back over Rio as well as up to the "Redeemer"  more »

  • Absolutely phenomenal views. We just happened to go by this place so I didn't have a nice camera but still managed to get great shots with my phone, especially in the panorama view. This is a great Panoramic Picture spot. There's a good size parking lot leading up to it and if you're lucky, you might see some monkeys as you walk up to the view point.
  • Best place in Rio to view all its historical landmarks. We witnessed many people rush in and out, take your time-relax and absorb the wonderful views or Christ statue, the airports, the city, Sugar Loaf and the many favelas. Beautiful views in each direction. We walked down to the city and then took a taxi-its a lovely walk downhill.
  • This is a better vantage point from which to click photos of Rio (including Pao de Acucar) than the outlook at Cristo Redentor. Arrive just before sunrise or sunset.
  • Free place to have a amazing view of a big part of the city. Must do if you can go with somebody.
  • The secret to this place is to come here if the weather is too cloudy for you to get the amazing views at the Christ statue. The elevation is lower (so typically under the clouds) but still high enough to get the picture perfect scenery.
