Rio de Janeiro is a primary tourist attraction in Brazil and a famous resort area thanks to its numerous attractions and the 80 km of beaches, the Sugarloaf Mountain and the Corcovado area. That is why the city receives the greatest number of visitors per year to any other city in South America, exceeding 3 million of international holiday makers, not to mention the domestic travelers.
Rio De Janeiro – best travel destination
Rio de Janeiro has been granted many times as the “best destination” by the World Travel Awards in South America. The city of Rio de Janeiro features world-class hotels, complexes of serviced apartments and hostels. All those accommodation places are easily reached through the available holiday car hire offered by the local offices of the car rental companies.
Hotels in Rio De Janeiro
The fanciest and most luxurious hotels in Rio de Janeiro are situated in Zona Sul, along the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Around the area of Catete and Flamengo are to be found many small and much cheaper hotels. Naturally, those travelers that prefer the upscale living will find designer hotels.
The accommodation offered in the lower Centro area is preferred by the business travelers as they are close to the business district. However, the area around lacks nice restaurants and entertainment places. Ideal area in Rio de Janeiro to those who are looking for pleasant bed and breakfast service is the neighborhood Santa Teresa. It features nice restaurants and night clubs as well.

A great alternative to the hotels available are the apartment hotels, many of which placed in Ipanema area, and all nicely appointed and in good residential areas with not so many tourists. The visitors will find a great selection of apart-hotels that are equipped with all necessary kitchen facilities and other comforts.
The travelers can also stay in the private condominium apartments that could be rented on a short-term basis at reasonable rates. Some of the serviced apartments have one week minimum stay and sometimes two weeks minimum stay during the Carnival or during the New Year celebrations. Travelers should be aware that the prices in that period go up.
Motels are another option, yet they are to be found in the outskirts of the city. They are seldom used as accommodation by the holiday makers. The hostels are quite common and the most expensive ones are placed walking distance away from the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.
