    Stadium very conserved. Impeccable lawn. Huge bleachers. All in excellent condition for football games or great shows. Pity that the town doesn't have time.

    Stadium with an excellent structure but without management. Deserve better care. Presents an excellent lawn.

Where to stay in Uberlandia

It's no coincidence that many of Uberlandia's most upmarket hotels line the city's main shopping street, Avenue João Naves de Ávila. Stay in one of the hotels along the avenue, or in the streets of the city center just behind it, to have easy access to the city's excellent shopping options. If high-end acommodation and glitzy retail isn't what you're looking for, look a few minutes away from the avenue and stay in one of many budget guesthouses and hostels. You can also find a cluster of accommodations slightly to the northwest in the neighborhood of Higino Guerra, around Praça da Bíblia.
