Where to stay in Rio

It would be great to know someone in Rio, so you can have a free stay but if you don't, there are wonderful Hotels in Copacabana and Ipanema and of course other places. In Zona Sul, the best section of Rio, you will find Rio's fanciest and most popular hotels along the beaches.

Copacabana Palace (5 stars)

For me the Copacabana Palace is the most beautiful Hotel in Rio, it is very traditional, right in front of the Atlantic Ocean with a huge pool, so very beautiful. The food and service amazing!
I have stayed there a few times and it is a piece of paradise.
It is also close to everything.
It was opened in 1923, this impressive stucco-fashioned building is Rio's most traditional and luxurious hotel. This landmark was designed by the French architect Joseph Gire who was inspired by two hotels, the Negresco in Nice and the Carlton in Cannes. Since opening the hotel has had only two owners, the Guinle family of Rio de Janeiro and from 1989, Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises.
Highly acclaimed Copacabana Palace is renowned as the most luxurious hotel in Rio. With a long established reputation for exceptional service, it is the first choice for celebrities, royalty, politicians and the business traveller.
